One year ago, James Aspey — a cruelty-free health and fitness trainer from Sydney — took up an incredible challenge. He began a journey that saw him travelling Australia to 'speak up' for animals — without saying a single word. This week, James' successfully completed his Voiceless365 initiative ... and spoke his first words in an entire year on National television.
What James had to say will no doubt touch the hearts of anyone who cares for animals:
James explains that he embarked on this extraordinary challenge "to raise awareness for the voiceless victims of this planet ... the animals. I went voiceless, because they're voiceless — I thought ... but then I realised, they're not actually voiceless."
"Animals are using their voice to tell us they're suffering. But the problem is, we aren't listening" — James Aspey
Not only has James inspired countless people through his actions — but during his journey, he raised much-needed funds for animal protection organisations, including Animals Australia. Thank you James, for your incredible sacrifice on behalf of animals — and for inspiring others to make kinder choices in their lives!
To discover just how easy it is to save the lives of animals through your food choices, join more than 12,000 people who have signed up to give vegan-living a go as part of the international Veganuary initiative! As James said, "it's SO easy" to live cruelty-free (not to mention better for the animals, too!).
