Now Shipping – New Why Vegans!!
We are extremely pleased to announce that the new Why Vegans are now shipping from the printer. Those who had backorders for boxes of 300 should receive them sometime next week (note – they will be copies from the Farm Sanctuary sponsored printing, which printed first). Here at the office, we're anxiously awaiting our copies as well, and will then start filling the smaller backorders.
We will be sending a copy to each of our members as a special holiday present. In the meantime, you can download a pdf of the final version. Thanks to everyone who made this possible; together, we can make the new year the best ever for the animals.
Have a Dell Coupon?
Selected customers receive private email coupons for a percentage off purchases at Dell. If you received one you won't use (for home, small business, or education), please donate it to Vegan Outreach. Thanks!
A super special thanks to Vanessa Marcol, for her donation of a 15% off coupon to Vegan Outreach!
Thanks so much for putting together and offering the color posters and prints of factory farm animals. The larger format ones are the best I've seen. We put together a "Welcome to the Slaughterhouse" display using a separate panel for each animal (pigs, birds, cows) and the number slaughtered each year. I use this display all the time. I laminated all the images and put velcro on the back... it's completely interchangeable so we can tailor it to each demo.
The feedback has been terrific. Many of the people that will not watch the video footage check out the display instead. Very powerful!!
For the animals,

It has been a stunning month for the animals in the United States! Following the victory for breeding sows in Florida and Michael Pollan's much-discussed exposure of the "stupefying crime" of factory farms, Compassion Over Killing's latest action has received play in over 55 media outlets, including the New York Times and CNN:
It very well may be that the tide might be turning, both in terms of the public's awareness, and the movement's focus. The idea of focusing our limited resources on the 99+% of animals killed in the U.S. is spreading. As also pointed out by the New York Times in their article about COK:
With all the coverage from various sources, compassionate people everywhere now have a unique opportunity to expose the plight of the animals, and encourage others to boycott factory farms, "our worst nightmare."
