TODAY IS — World Farm Animals Day! This day was created in memory of Mahatma Gandhi who believed that all living beings should be treated with respect. Today focuses on the poor conditions some farm animals suffer through and to promote awareness to bring change and improve their lives. Originally created to bring awareness, it can be celebrated in light-hearted ways, like visiting local farm animals, learning about their different needs or donating to a charity that works on protecting those animals who have suffered. Also, teaching children about treating animals with respect is a positive that could come out of this day.
