As a 10 year old I want to share with the world how proud I am to be vegetarian and that other kids can be too without being ashamed. I’m going to open an online clothing store that sells items that tell everyone just that. Crueltyfreekids.com will have tshirts and other items which announce loud and proud that “I’m a kid and cruelty free”. I would like the website to become more over time, to be a resource kids can turn to for information and support but for now the goal is awareness of animal cruelty and I will be using profits to support animal welfare charities like Safe.
I need to raise $1500 towards costs such as clothing and website design, product samples, photography and advertising.

Home swap for holidays
Lovely three bedroom home available in Raglan (near the town). The owners would like to offer their home for a holiday swap somewhere (NZ or overseas).
They are vegan, so people would need to commit to not cooking or having animal based foods in the house.
They have two cats and a chicken (rescue from pot), in its own luxury house and enclosure, (which would need feeding with food supplied).
They have an organic vege garden and fruit trees, depending on season, with food available to use.
The house is not really suitable for small children as it is three levels and the back section is not fenced.
Their son (who is also vegan) lives up the road, and could be contacted with any concerns.
