Between drafting blogs and researching campaign targets, the day of a Campaigns Assistant is never the same! Read more to learn about a typical day in the life.
There is no action that is too small to have a positive impact on animal lives.
I consider myself fortunate to work in a field that allows me to channel my passion for helping animals into meaningful change. I don’t take my responsibility of supporting our organization’s campaigns to protect animals lightly. But, before I tackle any day’s to-do list, I make sure to spend some quality time with my cat, Mrow, in the morning. While I advocate for all animals, he’s a strong advocate for cozy sunrise cuddles and a hearty breakfast–a platform I can also support.
I’m also fortunate to work from home, which allows me more time during my lunch break to grab a bite to eat, run an errand, or spend time scowling at the wallpaper that’s been begging to be hung for the past couple months.
The last half of my day, just as the first, looks a bit different every day. For example, I could be supporting our wildlife work by researching one of our corporate targets, such as Groupon. We’re actively demanding that Groupon immediately stop profiting from wild animal suffering and adopt a public animal welfare policy that protects animals and doesn’t exploit them. Or, I could be building out any upcoming webinars we have planned! Experts from World Animal Protection, and occasional special guests, provide insights and access to our campaigns for protecting animals. We keep an online archive of our past webinars but keep a lookout for upcoming webinars in 2023!
