What charities do you support – and how?
I give money to lots of amazing people who are doing hands on work to relive the suffering of animals—one being at a time. I also give money to many amazing people who are working to educate other human beings about the intelligence and sensitivity of other animals, trees, forests, bodies of water and other eco-systems. I also like to support individual musicians who are doing wonderful musical things in the world.
