Voiceless365: speaking out for animals without saying a word

An inspiring young Australian is sacrificing his voice for a year — to help the voiceless.


PUBLISHED ON: 17 January 2014

If a piglet could tell us what it feels like to have his tail cut off without pain relief...
If a hen could speak about spending every day confined to a tiny wire cage...
If a cow could articulate her anguish as her newborn calf is taken away...
Would society still allow it to happen?

Animals can't cry out for help, and this inability to speak is used mercilessly against them by industries that prioritise one thing — profit. While we normally encourage advocates to 'speak up' on their behalf, there's one caring Australian who is helping to spread kindness country-wide, without saying a word.

James Aspley, a 27 year old personal trainer who "loves to talk" is sacrificing his voice for 365 days to raise awareness and much-needed funds for animal protection. James' Voiceless365 initiative aims to raise over $50,000 for animals while he travels the country.

You can help!
