'Marvel's Hero Project' Recap: Genesis the Amazing Animal Ally
Every week on Marvel's Hero Project -- streaming exclusively on Disney+ -- you will meet a new young hero making a difference in their communities and all over the world! In this episode, meet Genesis!
From an early age, Genesis felt that she had a connection to animals, even saying that she could sense their emotions the way humans can sense each other’s emotions. Her mom explained different ways to support causes she cared about, and Genesis “fell in love with activism.”
Among the causes Genesis supports are providing access to plant-based meals in hospitals, nursing homes, and prisons; putting a stop to animal testing; and banning the dissection of animals in classrooms.
Another way Genesis has supported her cause is by starting her own nonprofit organization, Genesis for Animals, which raises money to support animal sanctuaries all over the world that house rescue animals. Genesis regularly volunteers at animal sanctuaries and knows how costly it can be to run the facility and provide for the animals.
