Kimaya made a pinky promise with her grandfather, Dr. Sailesh Rao – a Vegan World by 2026 to save her family – the animals. Find out more about the scheduled Pinky Promise Tour events.


A promise made to a child for all of us

A Pinky Promise is sacred

A pinky promise is a traditional gesture usually amongst children where they lock their fingers to show a serious promise has been made.

The Pinky Promise Tour  is based on a pinky promise between Kimaya and her grandfather, Dr. Sailesh Rao, that he (and his friends) would create a Vegan World by 2026 to save her family – the animals.

Originally an in-person road show around North America, the Pinky Promise Tour is now virtual – and global – and with a solution that can not only help heal our climate, but can help heal 3 of the main risk factors for COVID-19 mortality (hypertension, diabetes and heart disease) and help prevent future zoonotic diseases.

To join the Pinky Promise Tour and schedule your own Virtual Discussion between Dr. Rao and your organization or community (and/or a family-friendly event with granddaughter and Animal Hero Kid Kimaya), please contact us.

You can make a huge impact with your actions and advocacy

Many of us are already Vegan in our hearts. The birthing of a post pandemic Vegan World will likely be viewed as the “greatest transformation in human history,” even though it is just a return home to who we really are.
