UPDATE - The Final Days!

Guy's extraordinary challenge is almost complete - on 28th February 2017, he will have been voiceless for one whole month! Guy's amazing feat has caught the attention of the media, vegan campaigner James Aspey and, of course, Viva!. His dedication is an inspiration to us all and has had a strong impact on his friends and acquaintances - many of whom have now changed their eating habits for the better. He has also raised well over £1000 for Viva!'s campaigns! He's a true Team Viva! Hero.

Guy's amazing silent month has caught the attention of UK and international media.

The amazing James Aspey, who was Guy's inspiration for his silent month, posted Guy to his Facebook page.

Thank you to Guy for doing such an inspiring challenge. You're a real Team Viva! Hero.

Last year, in the UK, more than one billion land animals were slaughtered. That's 1,072,960,740 individual lives ended. None of those animals had a choice in their inhumane treatment and ultimate death.

Guy's campaign highlights the importance of having a voice with which to stand up for our rights. His voiceless February is a reminder that it is easy to lose power when no one speaks your language. It's easy for people to pretend not to hear what they cannot understand as speech.

Since starting his vegan journey, Guy has helped many of his friends to see the value of not eating animals. He has written about that journey on his Facebook page and he wants to bring the message of compassion to more people through his month of being Voiceless for Viva!.

Guy says:

When it comes down to it, most people have a very similar set of core values. Veganism is about living out these core values and being true to what you believe. One doesn’t have to love animals to be a vegan, they can just be against harming other beings without a just reason.

Guy has chosen to live out his own personal ethics by going vegan and for doing all he can to get the message out. His determination to go silent for Viva! will touch thousands of people. We want to support Guy and help him to reach his goal of £1000.

Show your support. Help us to change the world.
