“Together our voices are louder”
Chickpiece donates 10% of every sale to Surge Animal Sanctuary
‘Our vision is a world in which all animals are free from human-inflicted oppression and violence, our vision is therefore of a vegan world. Surge focuses on veganism as we believe that it is through veganism that we’ll collectively end the oppression of non-human animals.
Our philosophy is that change comes through vegan education. Through our many educational projects and operations, our mission is to push animal rights forward into mainstream public thinking, as well as encouraging unity through community-based activism
– Ed Winters (known online as Earthling Ed) is the Co-Founder and Co-Director of Surge.
Ed Winters or ‘Earthing Ed’ has long been an inspiration to us and really helped us with our education on veganism. Being vegan can be a lonely place at times and voices like Eds are always massively empowering and leave us feeling ready to face the world with our heads held high.
We are so excited and proud to be able to support the Surge Sanctuary by donating 10% of every item of jewellery purchased from Chickpiece*
We also want to use our platform to talk about the amazing work that Ed is doing and of course all of the goings on at the Surge Animal Sanctuary so check out our newsletters for regular updates!
Just over two years ago, SURGE opened Unity Diner in London and a dream was born to one day open an Animal Sanctuary. Thanks to the incredible support that Unity Diner received, the Surge Animal Sanctuary has now been realised with 18 acres of land in the midlands providing a safe place for rescued animals to see out the rest of their lives in peace and surrounded by love. Not only this but the team intends on rewilding an area with a wild flower meadow for the bees and insects to thrive, a pond with a duck house in the middle that will attract dragonflies and be a haven for insects and biodiversity, veganically grown beautiful fruit and veg and an education center in order to help people understand how these precious souls are more than a commodity and pave the way for people who want to live a life healthy, compassionate life whilst also protecting the planet. Sounds like a paradise!
*We will donate a minimum retainer payment of £20 per month regardless of sales made. Full accounts detailing payments made available on request.

In addition to practicing conventional medicine, we are passionate about promoting health and well-being using whole food plant-based nutrition. There is no doubt that conventional medicine has resulted in some astonishing advances in patient care.
