Adopt a College Update
Vegan Outreach's Adopt A College program has been achieving many milestones lately, thanks to everyone who has taken part as well as everyone who supports our work through donations. Since last August, we have handed students over 40,000 vegetarian brochures on almost 100 campuses. Theoretically, this has translated into over 1.8 million birds and mammals being spared a life of misery on a factory farm.

Matching Donation Creeping Forward
We've received $200 toward the $800 "Match our tax refund" challenge. If you can, please donate today, so we can get this matching money. Please make a note with your donation indicating "Tax refund." Thanks!
As soon as we reach our printing goal, Vegan Outreach will be printing more copies of Why Vegan.
If you think your group, like Farm Sanctuary, Mercy for Animals, and others, might like a version of Why Vegan with your contact information, please contact Jack (firstname.lastname@example.org). Some groups are working together to sponsor a run. Minimum size of 20,000 is ~$2,000.
