Do you love taking care of cats and dogs that don't have their forever homes yet? Volunteer at your local animal shelter.
Do you love to bake? At your next soccer game or track meet bring some vegan chocolate chip cookies (make sure to always use non animal products while helping animals in need) and have a bake sale. Make a sign that says all proceeds will go to help an animal sanctuary of your choice.
Are you a really good artist or creative writer? Write and illustrate your own book about an animal you love in need and print it so people can read your book and become educated about the plight of your animal.
These are just a few ideas. Brainstorm with a parent or
friend and think of an amazing way to help animals in
