$5 Friday Pick: Fish Feel

We’ve donated $78,820 to
farm sanctuaries and farmed animal advocacy organizations
on $5 Fridays.

That’s sensational news!
Special thanks to YOU for joining this movement!

This week’s $5 Friday pick
is the incomparable
Fish Feel.

Fish Feel is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization devoted exclusively to promoting the recognition of fish as sentient beings deserving of protection. The organization educates the public about why we should respect and appreciate fishes, the immense problems caused by their exploitation, and how we can help them. Whether working to pass laws to save their lives or introducing people to more humane options, Fish Feel is leading the movement to protect marine life, our oceans, human health, and our planet.

Mary Finelli, the organization’s founder, recently appeared on Kirschner’s Korner Radio to discuss her team’s work at Fish Feel. If you listen to the interview, you will probably wind up doing what I did–donate while she is talking!

Fish Feel needs our help to expand their impact. With your support, they can purchase the resources they need to reach a global audience with their message of compassion for marine life and compete with the ruthless commercial fishing industry depleting our oceans of fishes and ecosystems. Let’s help them increase their presence at events and equip them with displays, enable them to be a powerful advocate to encourage the passing of laws to protect marine life, purchase pro-fishes advertising in fish enthusiast magazines, and attend conferences to share their powerful and convincing message.

Let’s show the all-volunteer team at Fish Feel how much we appreciate their effective advocacy. If we all give a little, it will add up to a lot and make a huge difference. I know this organization very well, I’ve vetted them thoroughly, and I have the highest degree of confidence they are saving fishes’ lives, improving people’s health, and protecting our oceans, lakes, rivers, and streams. Two huge thumbs up for Fish Feel!
