About the Israeli Campaign

The mass circulation of Gary Yourofsky’s speech in Israel through social media changed the Israeli public’s viewpoint on animal welfare issues drastically. Following this huge success, the animal rights organization SHEVI – Animal Liberation Israel (whose activists were responsible for spreading the aforementioned speech), has decided to launch the nonprofit initiative of Kinder World, aimed at distributing educational videos to promote compassion for animals across the world.

Distributing Gary’s speech has proved to be the most influential and effective tool in switching people to veganism. No other educational action has gotten even close to the impact that this speech had, not just by Israeli standards, but across the world. Since its publication on April 2011, countless enthusiastic viewers sent their testimonies on how the speech has changed their lives.

To understand the appeal of the lecture, we consulted with several psychology experts. Opinions varied (read, for example, Dr. Melanie Joy’s Analysis) except for one subject which they all agreed on – this powerful speech has a tremendous potential to influence people to change their thinking and their way of life.

Indeed, to this day hundreds of thousands Israelis viewed the lecture, many of whom did not remain indifferent and adopted a new and cruelty free way of life.

We encourage you to help us spread the lecture by distributing printed material, organizing screenings of the speech at your institution, sharing it on Facebook and other platforms, donating to fund ads on Facebook, YouTube and Google, and in any other way you see fit.
