If I could earn a living doing what I love most, I would spend my life caring for abandoned factory farmed animals at my own farm sanctuary. I would dedicate the time I used to spend punching a clock to raising awareness about the environmental impact of where our food comes from. I would give others the chance to spend time with the animals that end up on their plates in order to promote healthy dietary changes and animal welfare. In short, I would change the world by giving people the close-up, hands-on opportunity to fall in love with the animals they only know as food.
I would start by buying several acres of land in a rural town where factory farms are usually operated. I would build a tiny home for myself that is completely self-sustaining and several enclosures to house and feed rescued animals. I would install solar panels and rain barrels and garden with composted scraps. I would use my house to illustrate how damaging factory farming techniques are to our planet. That way, I could put all of my income from offering tours of the sanctuary towards facilitating a living for the animals, instead of simply making a living for myself. I would make my sanctuary known to local businesses that may come across abandoned farm animals that need care.
Changing the way we think about food would benefit our health and the impact we have on the environment. Simply put, it would change the world.
