Ellen DeGeneres loves to give them away.

Yeah, you know what we’re talking about. The vegan Matt & Nat handbag collection!

VegNews magazine caught up with Inder Bedi, founder of Matt & Nat, to talk about the cool perks of owning and running a vegan business.

Not only is this guy successful financially, he gives back, including feeding indigent people vegetarian meals.

“We give back to many different types of charities all over North America and Europe, from animal-rights to battered women’s shelters to feeding 400 homeless people a vegetarian meal twice a year in Montreal. An example of all this is a new brand we just launched, Samsara. One dollar for every bag sold goes to the charity of your choice. In three months since the launch, we’ve already committed more than $16,000!”

    i wonder what do the homeless people think about the vegan meal. Do they like it? or it doesn’t even mather for them

    I have been homeless at several points in my life. Contrary to popular belief, most homeless did not become so out of choice and not because they are lazy, stupid, or immoral. Many homeless people are victims of abuse in the form of neglect and abandonment by their parents or other caregivers. Some of them are simply victims of life’s tragedies, such as hurricanes, fires, or other catastrophes from which they simply don’t have the resources to recover. I invite you to my blog devoted to raising awareness on homelessness: Freethegods.com. There you will find an article I wrote on homelessness and pictures I have taken of homeless people. I always give them a dollar or two for the privilege of photographing them. I am often surprised by their cheerfulness and sense of pride. Often, they will show themselves to have some kind of talent. There is a fine line between genius and insanity.
