Compassionate Gift Giving

Renowned author, public speaker, and dedicated animal advocate Colleen Patrick-Goudreau shares this holiday-inspired video to help others give and receive gifts as a joyful vegans. In it she covers establishing open communication, creating compassionate gifts, receiving non-vegan gifts, and more.

Colleen says, "The best we can do is speak our truth and be as compassionate and tolerant toward [others] as we expect them to be toward us."

Planning ahead is key. Colleen reminds us that waiting until you're holding a gift that goes against your values to start explaining why you choose compassionate gifts may not be the best strategy. Watch the video for lots of helpful tips to make holiday gift giving fun and enjoyable for everyone involved.

We share in Colleen's wish for you: "May you receive the gifts of the season with grace and may you be filled with the joy and peace that come with living a compassionate life."
