Adopt a College Update
Vegan Outreach's Adopt A College program has now theoretically prevented the suffering of over 2 million birds and mammals over the next 50 years!
Participants have distributed over 47,000 brochures (mostly Why Vegans and Try Vegetarians) on college campuses since last August. You can join today!
At right, Ellen green leaflets in the snow at Carnegie Mellon University on March 22. Between CMU and Duquesne U., Ellen, with a little help, distributed 850 copies of Try Vegetarian that day.
Matching Donation Almost Reached!
We've received $700 toward the $800 "Match our tax refund" challenge! We're also only $4,700 away from reaching our Winter Fundraising goal that will allow Vegan Outreach to print more copies of Why Vegan!
If you can, please donate today, so we can get this matching money. Please make a note with your donation indicating "Tax refund" and/or "Winter Printing." Thanks!
Congrats to Protecting Animals, USA -- a great "feed-in" and information table at DePaul University!
Josie is an 8-year old artist and animal lover who wants to make the world a better place for all Earthlings, even the four-legged, winged, slimy or scaly ones. Josie donates the money from the sales of her designs to her favorite organizations, including Vegan Outreach. You can visit her site today!
Viva!USA and other groups have been working on banning foie gras production in California. This bill has an excellent chance of succeeding if California residents stay informed. See their site for the latest information.
HyperActivism: The Phenomenon of Doing Without Achieving (Reprint from 1996)
"For some time, the animal rights movement has been trapped in the nightmare in which you run as hard as possible but can’t seem to move forward. For all its growing resources and considerable energy, the movement is barely scratching the surface of animal suffering and misery. How can so many activists with so many resources achieve so little? ... Failure to assess priorities and undue emphasis on lesser problems can also muddy the real issues."
Wednesday, April 28. You can find more information and sign up here!
The deadline is April 9.
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.
Do You Have an Apple Laptop?
Vegan Outreach has some parts from a dead G3 (Lombard). Contact us if interested.
Thanks for your honest and powerful material.
After so much vegan tabling, I found so many
people who "used to be vegetarian"
or who have embraced the no-carb thing. That's
why it's great that you and Jack will be here
giving a talk!
