Actor, director and singer Jared Leto is known for his extremely intimate, dramatic roles in movies such as Requiem for a Dream, American Psycho and Dallas Buyers Club – and most recently, he’s coming into the spotlight for his upcoming central role as the supervillain Joker, in the antihero film, Suicide Squad.
Besides his glamorous career in music as the lead singer for 30 Seconds to Mars, and his career as a Hollywood actor, Leto is famous for his extremely youthful looks at the age of 44 – credited to his completely plant-based vegan diet. As an animal rights supporter, we at the #VeganCancer movement are asking Leto to take on the #VeganCancer Challenge. The challenge is quite simple, and involves only a few steps:
Hug a tree, and film yourself or take a picture while doing so.
Upload and share the image on your social network profiles with the hashtag: #VeganCancer
Challenge at least three of your friends to do the same, in the name of winning back the Earth and creating a cruelty-free world.
Optionally, become a patron of a virtual piece of land, and donate US$25 for the development of sustainable oases and projects all over the world.
Founded recently, the #VeganCancer movement has one primary goal – achieve serious change in the world, through dedicated, democratically-chosen and build vegan projects. Everything from animal sanctuaries to all-organic vegan farming communities, #VeganCancer aims to help people organize themselves and fundraise projects that would help change the world. The projects can be absolulely anything beneficial to all Earthlings, as long as it follows a few basic rules:
Sustainability. These would be projects for the construction of the future – which means no energy exploitation, land exploitation, or life exploitation. All buildings and communities will be self-sufficient, off-the-grid, both in terms of food production and energy production, without extensively harming or destroying the local ecosystem.
Cruelty-free living. All projects would focus on the rescue and habilitation of animals – livestock or otherwise – alongside humans. That means that no animal production can take place within these projects, and there will be no usage or creation of animal products. These same rules apply to humans, as well – the projects are to be developed for people of all genders, races, ages and cultures, so long as the policy of egalitarian treatment and freedom for all Earthlings is observed.
Freedom of information and education. Knowledge and information is shared and paid forward, so that people with skills others do not have can help interested people learn and better themselves – no need for formal systems of teaching, just mentorship, tutoring and access to modern information through the Internet.
