Welcome to our website! We are the Phillips' Family. We are Elle, a 37 year old teacher, Ryan a 38 year old stay at home dad who homeschools our 2 children and is a full time animal activist, our son Christian 11 years old and our daughter Rousseau, 9 years old and there is also Emmie, our 7 year old rescue dog who is a Yorkie and all of 5 pounds.
So why are we sharing our adventure? Well, we are a vegan family which is rare and makes us feel pretty isolated in this world but even more so we are a family of animal activists which can be even more isolating. Not only do we avoid all animal products when we eat and dress and in daily life but we will absolutely do anything we can to get the message out to others about the treatment of animals. Ryan paints, draws, makes t-shirts, talks to people, posts on his Facebook page, writes messages on his car, writes songs, writes poems, writes books, makes videos, visits sanctuaries, attends protests and vigils and we as his family are there for lots of his adventures so why not start a website and see how sharing our journey with others can hopefully spread compassion, hope and inspire others to join us in putting an end to animal suffering!
