Now a lot of people give lip service about their beliefs, what should be done etc. but here is a little Brisbane lady who actually does something to try and help. Let me introduce Kira Commoner of Kommoner.

My name is Kira and I create vegan-friendly plushies, brooches and jewellery when I'm not studying my Sociology degree, volunteering or watching documentaries. I have many strong beliefs about animal and human rights and use my business to help fundraise for various charities to further these causes. In 2011 so far I have raised over $2,000!

I am inspired by my passions, comic books and fantasy novels to create dinosaurs, robots and other cool little critters. I love seeing people's faces when they find something that they adore and are able to take it home with them. I also get a lot of enjoyment out of the feedback that I get.

In the future I hope to shift fully to eco-fi felt and create more products such as patches, shirts and postcards. While I would love to be able to live off Kommoner one day, I also hope to get involved in a charitable organisation in order to help change the world!

Here is some examples of her whimsical work

Here is a list of who Kira has raised money for so far, well done Kira!

Just an overview of all donations that have been made since I created Kommoner. I am hoping that by having these here I can inspire myself to do better and others to join in.

Here is the song Kira picked for this blog and this is why she chose it. It does not have a clip to go with it unfortuneately.

I chose this song because I have been learning a lot about sexism and about how people are pretty much brainwashed by the media. This song talks about a young person wanting to look like the people in the media. It's sad, but I hope that one day we can change this.
