One of the things I love most on my website are the challenges. Whether it’s to high-five a stranger or name three things you like about your reflection, the intent is to help us grow, gain perspective, smile, feel good, and make others feel good, too. Until I received this email from Hals, I hadn’t thought about turning the tables and inviting you all to challenge me. Thanks for the idea Hals!
If you have a great challenge for me, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
My name is Halie but everyone just calls me Hals, I’m 18 and I have a challenge for you! I love everything you stand for, kindness, health, confidence and overall positivity. However, I would love if you would promote cruelty-free products. It’s super easy to find brands that do not use animal testing. One of my favourite brands is Pur Minerals, they have the cutest lip colours! I know you strive for a healthy body which most cruelty-free brands are made from all natural ingredients! I think all your fans would agree with me when I say Harley and Lexi are the luckiest dogs in the world! You have so much love for them and I know you are a true animal lover.
I always participate in your challenges and strive to share kindness everyday so now I’m asking you to participate in my challenge! Spread awareness of how easy it is to be cruelty free! These poor animals do not have a voice. This is a new passion of mine and you have inspired me to stand up for what I believe in. Please help me make a difference.
Thanks for everything Jules!
Hello there, Hals!
I love how passionate you are about this topic. It’s one thing to believe in something and quite another to do something about it — which you clearly are doing! I am totally with you when it comes to all things cruelty free and with that said: challenge accepted!!
As Hals mentioned, it’s very easy to be cruelty free. To save time at the store, we can all do a quick online search to confirm which products don’t participate in animal testing. I found a great resource here.
