Adopt a College: Over 1 Million Saved!
Vegan Outreach’s Adopt a College program resulted in the handing out of over 24,000 brochures on 64 campuses during the Fall of 2003. The program has theoretically saved more than 1 million mammals and birds over the next 50 years!
Winter 2004 Printing
Last July (2003), Vegan Outreach printed 320,000 copies of Why Vegan. In September, we printed 150,000 copies of Try Vegetarian. We now have only 30% of these left, and they are going fast!!
Reprinting an updated version of both booklets will cost about $40,000. Thanks to your past support, we only need to raise $20,000 more. We hope you’ll make a special contribution today to help us meet this goal!
We will keep track of this Winter 2004 Printing fundraiser on our home page.
Please earmark your donation “Winter 2004 Printing.”

New Online Why Vegan?
Select Feedback (sorry to have fallen behind!)
on humor and advocacy today is
consistent with everything I've read from
Vegan Outreach. I think it's a very enlightened
approach consistent with Gandhi, Buddha, Jesus
and many other heroes of mine. Gandhi pointed
out that the very act of being alive means
we will be the cause of suffering, but the
goal is to minimize that suffering. Keep up
your good work and your good humor.
Hello, I'd first like
to thank you very much for this incredibly
informative website. It supported me when
I became the only vegan I knew, as a sophomore
in high school. The FAQ
link left me feeling well prepared
to answer anything others might ask me.
When I read Why
Vegan, I was absolutely mortified by
the inhumane treatment of dairy cows. I had
been unaware of their shortened life span.
Please send me a Vegan Starter Pack
so I can go vegan and stay healthy!
I just got back from
leafleting and I was sorry that I only took
about 150 Why Vegans! What an awesome
experience! It only took about 40 minutes
to hand them out. I basically held the brochure
up and said "Would you like one?"
The response was excellent. I am going to
try to go once a week.
I'm quite the admirer
of your cause, and I want to help you as much
as I can. I admire the level headedness of
your approach on the subject of veganism --
the whole "Don't get bogged down in little
facts, trying to be perfect. "
I looked over Why
Vegan and was shocked! I never realized
the cruelty to animals – you opened
my eyes! I’ve been vegetarian since
June – that’s seven months so
far. I feel great! Now I can look at animals
in peace, knowing I’m not contributing
to their suffering. Thank you!
I would just like to
tell you that what you people are doing is
an amazing, wonderful thing. You guys deserve
so much credit for caring this incredibly
much about animals. I'd like you to know that
I support you 100%. I was at a concert tonight
where people were passing out your pamphlets,
and they were beautifully put together. I'm
sure they've helped to change a lot of peoples
To everyone at Vegan
Outreach supporting the leafleting program,
I just wanted to thank you for sending me
the 300 Why Vegans. I recently have
been active in getting them out, passing out
60+ at a local craft fair, leaving them in
restaurants and stores around town, and bringing
a armful of them to any community even I go
to. They are wonderful tools to educate the
Mr. Ball -- I have
read a number of your articles on the website
and I have to tell you what an excellent writer
you are and how much you have helped my vegan
quest. (I am a fairly new vegan, after hearing
Nathan Runkle on NPR last year and sending
for the Vegan Starter Pack.) Your
article on Humor, Anger and Advocacy was so
good I had to print it out and share it with
my husband, who is very skeptical. He thought
you make great sense. Thank you. I want to
help as many animals as I can. I think I would
like to do adopt a college. Like you said,
the younger generation is our best hope.
Thanks for all the
good info. You couldn’t be doing better!
You come across as level-headed, factual,
and non-judgmental. The Starter Packs
I have recently been
doing the ebay thing (selling many things
online worldwide) and including a booklet
in each shipment. I have received many positive
responses with lots of questions from people
in Italy, Denmark, New Zealand, Spain, Chile,
and The Netherlands to name a few.
I just wanted to give
you an update on Vegan Outreach activities
at Hunter College.
I was just given you’re
brochure called Why Vegan and I was
absolutely appalled by the way the animals
are treated and slaughtered. You should be
happy to know that you have now converted
me to become vegan. Thank you so much for
opening up my eyes even further to this awful
