Who We Are, How to Join, Why It’s Crucial

The Compassion Collective is integral to Mercy For Animals’ supporter base, creating a powerful impact for animals through gifts of $1,000 to $10,000 each year. This group of dedicated activists raises funds to support a significant portion of our annual budget. The Compassion Collective is at the core of who we are and why we can do this important work.

Meet Mikael

Mikael has been active in animal protection since 2002 and part of Mercy For Animals since 2006. When he met our founder, Milo Runkle, Mikael was immediately impressed—from the group’s messaging and branding to its organized strategy and effective use of resources. “I truly felt that every hour I donated to Mercy For Animals was an hour put to really good use,” Mikael recalled. He volunteered for six years and has served for the past 10 as a staffer in various programs, including corporate engagement, organizing, and fundraising. Today he oversees the Compassion Collective and spends his days working with supporters to ensure they stay engaged with the organization’s work and mission to end industrial animal agriculture.

Check out Mikael’s bio here. He would love to connect through LinkedIn, Facebook, and Instagram.
