 Interviews with People Who Make a Difference: Making Kind Choices 
Interview with Ingrid Newkirk
   as interviewed by Daniel Redwood DC

For anything that you’re worried about, there is invariably a compassionate alternative. So if there are children in school who don’t want to take a scalpel to that frog or that cat, we have resources on our educational website,, for example, of fabulous, modern, sophisticated alternatives, like computer program software.

REDWOOD: My daughter used one of those when she was in high school.

NEWKIRK: Oh, good.

REDWOOD: Is there anything else that you would want our readers to know?

NEWKIRK: This may be too general, but I always think people shouldn’t be overwhelmed. They don’t have to agree with everything initially, or ever, to know that no act of kindness, no matter how small, is wasted. That if they really believe that kindness is important, it’s simply a matter of learning as much as you can and then trying to use your consumer power. Because we really are important as consumers, we really do move the marketplace, and our voices do count. And what we buy, and how we entertain ourselves, really counts for something. And not to think that we have to be robotic consumers, but to seize control and to live our lives according to our principles. If enough people do that, it makes a huge difference. But if one person does it, it’s still terrific.
