Please meet our third "50/50" hero, 12-year-old Thomas Ponce from Florida. He has a special gift of inspiring people to protect animals through his infectious poise and passion. He's the voice for creatures who can only meow, woof and (fill in your favorite animal sound here). Through his website, LobbyForAnimals.org, he teaches his global audience how to lobby for animal rights.
I was in awe after meeting this accomplished tween, who has the poise of a seasoned elected official and a heart of gold. You just want to do something, anything, after hearing him speak. Nearly everyone Thomas touches says they were inspired to take action by his message: "Don't Just Dream of Change, Lobby for It!"
See out how he inspired an animal rights lawyer in New York and lawmaker in Florida to help him help animals. Can we give him a high five helping hand? (Or at least a high five social media shout out here?) His goal: to educate people with the power to better and save the lives of animals.
