All about Vegan Social Events 

In September 2016, Love Wild Live Free hosted the first ever Toronto Vegan Social event, bringing together influencers and media makers for an evening of delicious vegan food and drinks. This event was unique to the vegan community and well received by all who were involved. The second event on July 2017, was open to the public and was a great success. The event sold out - with a line up out the door!

Most importantly, $1 from every sale of the collection this upcoming season will be donated to Animal Justice, Canada's only animal law advocacy organization that works to pass animal protection legislation, push for the prosecution of animal abusers, and fight for animals in court. The work that Animal Justice does speaks to me on both a personal and professional level, as a lawyer and passionate animal rights activist. I could not be more thrilled to be supporting the fight for animal protection!
