Last Saturday, Jackass's Steve-O hosted a fundraiser to benefit The Kindness Collective.

The Kindness Collective is a group that works with domestic violence shelters to help accommodate survivors' pets.

"Up to 40% of domestic violence victims report that they are unable to escape their abusers because they are afraid of what will happen to their pets when they leave.

The Kindness Collective hopes to bring an end to the abuse by permitting victims of domestic violence to seek safety along with their pets."

At the event Steve-O spoke about his transition to living clean, sober and vegan. He said:

"Cruelty is unhealthy; compassion is healthy. And that is a universal rule that stays the same no matter what area you look at. I have benefitted from being vegan in every area of my life… emotionally, mentally, physically."

The founder and president of The Kindness Collective said:

"There's so much more to Steve-O than you see in Jackass and Wildboyz. Steve-O has a huge heart, and he lives a compassionate vegan life that is completely in line with the mission of The Kindness Collective."

Not only has he been clean and sober since March of 2008 he's also living a vegan, cruelty-free lifestyle.

Way to go, Steve-O!

Guests also enjoyed only the finest in vegan foods such as, Vegan Vine wines, Chocolate City Beer, Cavi-Art vegan caviar and much more.

The Kindness Collective focuses on working with domestic violence shelters to accommodate survivors' pets.

"The Kindness Collective is filling a void in the animal welfare community. Its much-needed initiatives will do a great deal to limit both human and animal suffering."

Up to 40% of domestic violence victims say they don't leave the horrible situations they're in because they fear for the safety of their pets.

The Kindness Collective wants to make sure they know that they have somewhere to go to seek shelter along with their pets.

A spokesperson said:

"It's unimaginable to go through abuse together and then have to leave your best friend behind….The Kindness Collective keeps friends together and safe, regardless of species."

What a great organization, it's nice they got Moby to lend his voice to their great cause.
