Genesis Butler became a vegan when she was six. Now 12, Butler is leading the Million Dollar Vegan campaign  to encourage people to eat less meat and dairy products in order to fight climate change. The campaign is backed by celebrities including Paul McCartney and is offering Pope Francis a million dollars for charity if he goes vegan for Lent. The Pope has been outspoken on environmental issues and in her message to him Butler seeks his support in tackling what she describes as "one of the largest underlying causes of the problems we face: animal agriculture".
