About Empathy For Animals

The Goal:

Empathy For Animals promotes positive change for animals by discussing norms in society viewed as acceptable while challenging other views on animal rights and their place in our culture. Empathy For Animals wants humanity to realize the truth with relatable reasoning. Although we tend to use emotion and feeling to connect to others, we also use this information as an informative approach to open the eyes of others that empathy exists in all forms of life. Anyone can make a change for animals; it all starts with empathy: the ability to understand and share the feelings of another.

The Story:

First of all, let me start out by introducing myself & stating why I started the site. My name is Kailei. I have been vegetarian since ~2007. At the time, I was 11 years old. My inspiration towards a change in empathy for animals is drastic, and has always been (hence the name). I have always loved animals and it wasn't till I was a little older that I realized what the hypocrite I was. Like everyone else, I pondered upon the idea of how one could love one animal, and eat the next. It just simply did not make sense and I would beat myself up over it, thinking it was my fault, why the world is the way it is today. As you could possibly imagine, I was constantly looked and talked down upon from previous friends and family because of having a different opinion. But to me, this was no opinion, this was logic & the way of life. Due to societal discrimination, it took me years & years to build the confidence I have today about my lifestyle; though it should not be that way, for finding truth & reason is such a beautiful thing. I hope you can see that some day, too. By starting this journey for truth at a young age, I know that being different than a majority of the population isn't easy. But change isn't easy. So, I'm here to tell you that it's not; it's not your fault, it's their fault. The people who contribute to support these inhumane practices for the sake of taste, entertainment, fashion, or whatever the case may be. You can make a difference simply by the choices you make every single day. I don't care what the world does. You're not the world, you are you. And you can make the change for the world... for yourself... and for the animals. Follow me in my journey as I go through my every day life supporting my new found truth with those who support me.

Thank you for being a part of the change for animals, for every positive difference is still a step forward towards animal liberation.

In fact, this face mask is even easier than most you’d find online.

Here’s how to clear up your complexion fast. What you’ll need: 1 banana, lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, an avocado, a bowl to put it in, and a fork.

Who would think everyday food could be put on your face? Well, you’d be surprised to hear that this mask will help reduce oil and shine and add moisture all at the same time without drying out your skin while fighting off prone pimples. Bananas are even known to reduce wrinkles when applied on the skin but eating them is great for you, too.  They are even known to reduce bags and dark circles.

Lastly, the extra virgin olive oil will provide antioxidants and moisture without clogging pores. All this from nature? You bet!

Continue mashing and mixing it together until it creates a liquid like consistency. Apply it to your clean face and left it sit on for 15 minutes.

Then wash it off with a warm washcloth then rinse with cold water and feel the difference!  

This homemade remedy is not only simple but also tasty. So what can you do with the leftovers? Store it for the next day in the fridge, share it with a friend or even eat it! There’s no need to worry about harsh chemicals or parabens because you can even go organic if you wish by using an organic banana and/or avocado.
