Volunteer Spotlight: Bruno Azambuja


Bruno is a dedicated animal advocate who spends much of his time spreading the vegan message of compassion. In addition to his volunteer work with the non-profit group VEDDAS in Brazil, since 2012, Bruno has helped with our Portuguese online social media campaign by developing educational content for the website and responding to people's questions about veganism. The campaign would not be possible without Bruno and several other wonderful VEDDAS volunteers who help with this online outreach. It's a privilege to work with vegan advocates who have such a strong passion and drive to make the world a better place, and it's with great pleasure that we recognize Bruno as our featured volunteer.

Social Media as an Activist Tool

The series guides readers through the process of creating engaging content and posts, identifying target audiences, and much more! You definitely don't want to miss this!
