I spent a lot of years doing work that didn't feel rewarding. When I started VegShe, I made sure that everything from my services to my mission would be about giving and being of service to others.
50% of all of the proceeds from my online group fitness class subscriptions benefit a featured non-profit. I alternate between charities that support animal welfare and human welfare.
There are two organizations I work with very closely and you can learn more about them below.
Why I Ride
In 2014, my late grandfather, Lieutenant Colonel James Arnestad, was diagnosed with ALS. At the time, I had no idea what ALS was. Within three years of his diagnosis, he passed away as a result of ALS related complications.
There is NO CURE for ALS!
Every year, in his memory, I lead Team Grandpa in the SoCal Ride to Defeat ALS. I also volunteer my time as a member of the planning committee for this event.
If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to the ALS Association, please do so by clicking on the, "Donate Securely With PayPal", link at the bottom of this page. If you'd like to join our team, send me a message and I can provide you with further details.
Thank you for your consideration and support as we work to challenge ALS and make a difference in the lives of those impacted by this devastating disease.
Why I Support Mercy For Animals
Mercy for Animals is an animal rights organization that has animal and human rights in mind. They are aware that the broken food system and animal agriculture industry in the United States takes it's toll on the animals, environment, and on human rights.
MFA is on a mission to construct a more compassionate food system. They work to create and support legislation that will reduce suffering of animals, enforce corporate policies to reduce suffering of animals and increase market share for plant-based foods, and they support the animal protection movement on all levels.
