Laura & Tawnie of NARA Ireland – Episode 10

Laura & Tawnie of NARA Campaigns Ireland

Two people who should be on your radar, that are fighting for animal rights and liberation worldwide, but especially in Ireland, are Laura & Tawnie of NARA Campaigns Ireland. I admire Laura & Tawnie for so many reasons, mostly because they are do’ers’, not say’ers’. If they say they will get fur farms banned in Ireland, you can bet that they will put their blood, sweat and tears into doing so. They give up all of their time to spread their vision and message and do it with such passion, love and energy, in rain, hail, sleet or snow (literally this the truth, as I have seen it first hand on a very snowy day), to bring more education for people when it comes to animal liberation and why it is so important. Regardless of whether you agree with everything they say, you do have to give them your full respect and admiration, as they are out there, trying to make the world a better place, for the most vulnerable who cannot defend themselves. There is a lot to learn from this interview on animal rights and how to lead a more cruelty-free life and hopefully you (like me) can learn something from these two amazing activists!
