Simpsons Co-Creator Donates Fortune to Animal Welfare

Animal lover and vegan Sam Simon was diagnosed with terminal cancer and plans to donate his entire fortune to charity.

Sam Simon recently received a terminal colon cancer diagnosis reports The Hollywood Reporter. After the prognosis, he announced via podcast that he would be donating the majority of his fortune to charity. Simon may be best known for his work with Matt Groening in creating The Simpsons, but his dossier also includes extensive collaborations with animal-rights organizations such as the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, and his own California-based Sam Simon Foundation, serving vegan meals to hungry people and dogs. In an interview with THR, Simon explains that the change he would most like to see in the world is for animal testing to cease. “Veganism is an answer for almost every problem facing the world,” he tells THR.
