Volunteer David Feldmann originally got involved with CAA during our Postcards for Animals mailing initiative earlier this year. Lately, he’s been helping to distribute rewards cards for the Explore Veg Challenge. Read on to find out what inspires David to take action on behalf of animals and why he chooses a plant-based diet.
David became aware of CAA through social media and decided to occasionally volunteer with postcard campaigns. He says, “It was a perfect opportunity to encourage people out there to consider going vegan! I love sending mail to friends and family, so this was right up my alley.”
David has been a vegetarian for over 20 years and a vegan for about 15. He says that helping out and supporting CAA makes him feel good because he truly believes that if people had more empathy toward animals, we would have more empathy for other humans and do what we can to make this world a better, less cruel place.
When he’s not helping CAA, David loves to hike the trails at Minnesota state parks and go birdwatching at Roberts Bird Sanctuary. He also co-hosts a podcast with his friend, Matt, called Quietly Yours.
