The UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak is being offered £1 million by the international vegan charity Generation Vegan.
The charity changed its name from Million Dollar Vegan last August, to go vegan for one month “for the sake of animals, the planet, wild places, our planet, our health, our farmers, and our future.”
The CEO of Vegan Generation, Naomi Hallum, delivered the following letter to Downing Street on Wednesday: “We would like to donate £1m to a charity of your choice in return for adopting a plant-based diet for a month.”
Full-page newspaper adverts, billboards in London
Through the first 10 days of the new year, advertisements imploring the Prime Minister to accept the vegan charity’s challenge will be shown on billboards at Westminster Underground Station and full-page advertising in four major UK newspapers. He will have until the end of January to make up his mind.
UK PM Rishi Sunak Vegan?
Pope Francis was previously challenged by the campaign, but he chose not to reply. Nevertheless, he gave the campaign his support and later pushed youth to consume less meat. Donald Trump, a former US president, was also challenged to eat vegan for a month but declined the invitation.
Sunak, the UK Prime Minister, has committed to defend the future of our world and has spoken about the significance of compassion, according to GenV.
With climatic, environmental, and health concerns rising in the United Kingdom and throughout the world, “It was time to encourage the UK leader to follow his words with meaningful action,” said the organization.
Matthew Glover launched Generation Vegan, which has high-profile advocates like as Dr. Neal Barnard, Paul McCartney, and Alicia Silverstone. According to the organization, it has met its goal of sharing one million plant-based meals with worldwide communities.
“Our sincere hope is that he will accept our million-pound offer. We urge him to lead by example and showcase how satisfying, healthy, and enjoyable – as well as ethically and environmentally positive – plant-based eating can be,” Hallum added.
