Upcoming Events

Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale

The Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale, taking place April 15-30th, is a fun way to fundraise and help good causes across the globe, and we need YOU to get involved! This year we are asking supporters to host bake sales to help raise funds for the beautiful new 455 acre ADI Wildlife Sanctuary in South Africa.

And through the incredible generosity of Janet Jensen and Human Investment, all funds raised for the sanctuary will be matched! Every dollar or pound that you send will be DOUBLED when it comes to us!

ADI Garden Party in Los Angeles

ADI’s summer Garden Party on July 22, 2018 was a huge success, with guests enjoying delicious vegan wines and food in good company. For the second year running, the event was hosted by ADI supporters Lo Sprague and Gwynne Guibord in their beautiful Hancock Park garden. ADI founders Jan and Tim updated guests on Operation Liberty in Guatemala and the building of a new ADI Wildlife Sanctuary in South Africa, and bidding on a unique auction featuring one of ADI’s famous green watering cans – ‘enjoyed’ by Kimba, one of five ex-circus rescued by ADI in Guatemala - fetched a whopping $5,000!

Gift bags included items by the following generous donors, including Aromatherapy Associate; Beaming; Blacklight Coffee Merchants; Habit; Justin’s/link}; and {link:}Paul Mitchell.
