Vegan Outreach Enewsletter  •  January 7, 2004


Happy New Year!

-Matt Ball

Anne, Ellen, and I got back late last night to a slew of orders, requests, messages, mail, etc. We will work hard to fill your orders and get out the requests for the Vegan Starter Pack, but please bear with us as we work to catch up.

If you had placed an order before December 18 and haven’t received it yet, please contact us.

Our great thanks to Christopher and Kari for organizing our talks in San Diego and Phoenix (some feedback below). We hope that everyone there found it useful -- or at least entertaining.

Thank you so much for your wonderful talk yesterday. I was really grateful to hear about how to not spend so much energy, worrying about the small amounts of animal products in meds/vitamins, etc. I've tended to drive myself nuts w/the ingredients, both not wanting to support those products & worrying about their effects on my system.

Thanks again for coming up here. It was a huge success. Every activist needs to hear that talk! I wish I would have either video or audio taped it. If you ever get an audio/video of that talk, I'd love a copy. My mom and I were talking about it this morning and you really made an impact on her! She is going to type up some of her notes from yesterday and keep them posted in her office as a daily reminder.

New Year's Donation Opportunity

A member has informed us that they will make a $500 donation to Vegan Outreach if we raise $500 to match it by January 21. If you would like to help bring this about, you can donate securely online -- please note "For New Year's $500 matching donation" with your donation. We will then announce in Vegan Spam as soon as we match the grant.


My Brother the Cow


Jay Leno on Mad Cow

"I read this in the paper today, economic experts say that the mad cow scare could lower the price of meat around the country at meat counters. What's the thinking here? People going, 'You know, I'm not going to risk dying of a horrible, nightmarish death of a brain disease that rots my mind, unless you knock a couple of bucks off the price.'"

We hope to have a mad cow issue of Vegan Spam out by the end of the week.
