Famous musician Billie Eilish and family made some women at the women’s centre very happy during mothers day by delivering vegan meals. Billie Eilish has been open about everything from her choices regarding her edgy style to the musicians she’d love to collaborate with. she made the decision to go vegan back in 2014 and has been an advocate for the movement ever since.
In a Tumblr post in 2018, Eilish said in response to a fan asking why she made the switch to veganism: “There were a lot of reasons, I love animals and I just think there’s no point in creating something out of an animal when the animal is already there. Leave animals alone…. Also, I’m lactose intolerant and dairy is horrible for your skin and my skin is VERY aware of that.”
Accompanied by her brother Finneas O’Connell, and their mother Maggie Baird, Eilish made a special Mother’s Day delivery on Sunday to support women in need and nurses working on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic
They made a lot of deliveries to the Downtown Women’s Center and Martin Luther King Jr. Community Hospital. Deliveries included doughnuts from Donut Friend, burritos from Cena Vegan, and flower bouquets from DB Creativity. “We had an incredible Mother’s Day today,” Baird posted on Instagram.
Baird has been hosting an event called Support + Feed initiative and this only went to further reach their goal. The event was launched in Los Angeles in March that aims to support vegan restaurants by encouraging gift orders and donations while feeding those in need through a coordinated delivery effort. the Support + Feed initiative now operates in a similar way in New York City and Philadelphia.
Among the many restaurants participating in Support + Feed is Donut Friend, in Baird’s neighborhood of Highland Park, the kitschy rock ‘n’ roll donut shop founded by Rocket From the Crypt/Drive Like Jehu indie-rocker Mark Trombino. “You can ask for the ‘Billie Ache,’ which is a donut they make on the secret menu. It’s a gluten-free donut, with lemon curd and chocolate mousse and raspberry on top,” she chuckles in an article written by Yahoo.
She also had this to say while talking to Yahoo about how she got into veganism
“Veganism is a really good lifestyle to adopt now, if you haven’t already, because obviously we’re all at home, trying to stay healthy, cooking for ourselves. What would be your advice for aspiring vegan families “
