It was reading Jonathan Safran Foer's book 'Eating Animals' that awakened Missy to the plight of animals in factory farms. Like many others, her first reaction was "Nobody knows the reality of what goes on. If they did they would be outraged". Which is exactly why Missy wanted to come on board 'Make it Possible' and as one of our leading ambassadors will front a national television commercial reminding consumers of the power of our choices to create a kinder world.
Missy has embraced a meat-free diet as part of her commitment to animals, but she recognised that the goal of Make it Possible — to ensure that all animals are provided with a life worth living and protection from cruel treatment — is one that all in society can agree with and make choices right now to help achieve. "Choosing whether or not to eat meat is obviously a personal choice, but I think everyone can agree that no-one wants to eat an animal that was tortured and miserable it's entire short life. There is a reason why no one's ever allowed in to these factory farms, they are barricaded up like Fort Knox, because they know if people saw where their meals were coming from they'd be horrified."
Missy's message is to find out where your food comes from — that the misery present inside factory farms will end if we don't support it.
"Making kind choices will drive change. Please join me in making the 'Make it Possible' pledge!"
