Every year, each Mooncup team member is given a share of the Mooncup funds to donate to a charity of their choice. Jana, our German Language Support Assistant, explains her choice here:
Seven years ago I finally recognised that the distinction I was drawing between farm animals like chicken and cows and the pets I love, was pretty arbitrary – so I became a vegan. Two years ago I started volunteering for The Humane League and I would like to support them again with my Mooncup donation.
“The Humane League’s mission is to reduce animal suffering by creating change at all levels. We work to reform the way farm animals are treated while also inspiring people to make more compassionate food choices.” Their methods are very effective and transparent, and they are incredibly good at reducing animal suffering with each donation they receive. I feel particularly drawn to The Humane League because of their dedicated research branch ‘Humane League Labs’, whose mission is, to “inform advocacy strategies through actionable research on their effectiveness… on behalf of animals”. Their evidence-driven advocacy is just very refreshing and inspiring. Thanks to their work 21M hens in the UK are now free from cages – equal the human population of Austria, Sweden and Croatia combined.
