Keith Mann: From Animal Right’s Activist to Education Enhancer

Keith Mann was born and raised in Rochdale, Greater Manchester. His primary caregiver growing up was his father. He credits his mother as “doing every thing else” when it comes to his upbringing. He had his first experience and contact with animal rights activists in 1982. Local hunt saboteurs were handed him a leaflet, and he was immediately intrigued with the idea of saving animals. The account that Mann has of helping an animal in captivity was taking a rabbit from a cage that he walked by daily. He had continuously asked the owner of the rabbit to better its living conditions, but the owner did nothing to improve the rabbit’s conditions.

Today, Keith Mann is a well-known British animal rights campaigner and writer. In 2005 the police alleged that Mann was at the top of the Animal Liberation Front (ALF) movement. In 2007 he wrote the book,”From Dusk ’til Dawn.” The book describes stories of the growth of the Animal Liberation Movement and it is the only book of its kind. There is now a website: From Dusk ’til Dawn; designed to promote the book and the bigger picture of the Animal Liberation project. The website is constantly evolving with the needs of the animals and the world today, in order to try to stay one step ahead. Mann has been part of the executive search industry for over fifteen years. He is an expert in hedge fund compensation, staffing and hiring strategy.

Avi Weisfogel Raising Awareness and Money

While it’s nice to think that we don’t judge people based on their looks, the unfortunate truth is that everyone is judged a little bit upon first glance. This is why people who suffer from facial deformities, usually caused by birth defects, often have a difficult time living their lives normally. Getting these deformities fixed is imperative in order to help not only their self-esteem but also to help them achieve their life goals.

Operation Smile is a program that was established in order to help bring dental and surgical services to children and young adults who are dealing with these devastating facial deformities. The charity ensures that everyone who needs serious surgical intervention gets it, even if they are unable to afford it.

Avi Weisfogel is one doctor who is doing everything he can to help. He set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for Operation Smile and was able, in just a short time, to donate $2000 to the worthy charity.

Weisfogel started his New Jersey based dental practice in 1999 and has been focusing his practice on sleep apnea. After managing his office for over a decade, Weisfogel started lecturing dentists so that they could better understand, and then treat, their patients suffering from sleep apnea.

Winning best dentist in his community a number of years in a row, Dr. Weisfogel has proven that he not only has a huge interest in ensuring that his patients get the treatment that they deserve, and in educating others about sleep apnea, he is also proving that he has a huge philanthropic interest. It is his hope that in donating his time, money, and in working to raise more funds for Operation Smile he can help to make the life of a child or young adult that much more fulfilling.
