We love our volunteers and want to recognize them for all their efforts, so we’re starting a monthly volunteer spotlight! At the beginning of each month, we’ll give a shout out to one volunteer and share their story. We hope you will enjoy reading about some of our amazing activists.
Our very first volunteer of the month is: Leo Angulo! He is an incredible person, one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet, and an invaluable voice for animals. We are honored to have him as part of our group. Thanks for all you do, Leo!
I started volunteering with IARA when the group was just a few people. My first event ever was outside Elan Furs on Black Friday like 6 years ago.
I have also done some leafleting, pay-per-views, marching on Pride and volunteer for MFA, Vegan Outreach and Indy VegFest. I’ve met wonderful people throughout the years, many of them dear friends.
I’ve been vegan for about 7 years. Used to love meat until I became interested in learning where food comes from. I just couldn’t do it anymore. Always loved animals and stop eating meat was the least I could do. Then the rest was easy. Not going back.
But can I do more?
Volunteering is really the least I can do to make this world a better place.
I now live with one dog and two cats that life has given the opportunity to care for. I love spending my free time with them. I also like cooking, baking and sharing food with my friends and family.
