Let’s celebrate a kind Christmas for all.

Imagine a world where clever pigs, affectionate turkeys, playful lambs and other farmed animals can be valued for who they are, not what they can produce. We don’t need to dream to make this possible - a kinder Christmas for all begins with you!

Take our fun pledge and get a free recipe ebook and goodies, plus go in the draw to win a Christmas Hamper.
Help us get to 5,000!

Meet Penelope Sue

Born into sanctuary after her battered mum was rescued, Penelope Sue was the tiniest of her siblings and needed some extra love. With kindness, she blossomed into the smart and friendly pig she was always destined to be - an opportunity denied to so many other pigs who are used for food production.

Why a Kind Christmas?

Christmas is a festive time shared with loved ones, often including the family dog or cat. But other animals with the same capacity to feel can suffer immensely for it.

Behind every leg of ham or lamb, roast turkey or chicken, there’s a story.

Farmed animals live rich emotional lives and feel joy, fear and pain. They respond to kindness, and value their friends.

All animals deserve to live free from harm, regardless of the way they look. You can be a force for kindness through the simple choices you make this Christmas and beyond.
