Notes from Vegan Outreach

Meet Jon Camp!

Jon Camp will be speaking and tabling at the Grassroots Animal Rights Conference in NYC, which starts tomorrow, March 31. Can't make it? He'll also be struttin' his stuff at AR2005 in Los Angeles this summer, along with speaker Jack Norris, as well as Anne Green and Matt Ball.

Also, Jon Camp will be leafleting in Portland, ME on April 13th and will need a place to stay on the 12th. If you would be willing to house him for that one night, please email jon@veganoutreach.org.

 

Link of the Week: Do You Need a Recipe?

"Itís fun to find a new recipe and add it to your regular favorites. Most of the time, though, youíre too busy to cook from a recipe. You just whip up dishes that are familiar and easy to prepare. What can you make that doesn't require any reading or measuring, but is tasty and nutritious?"

 

Distribution & Printing Update

Vegan Outreach is finishing up the first quarter on pace to distribute -- if resources allow -- nearly 1,000,000 booklets in 2005. Thanks to all the activists who are working hard to expose the hidden horrors of factory farms and industrial slaughterhouses.

Thanks to very generous, dedicated members, since March 16, Vegan Outreach has received $9,710 of the $15,000 needed for the next printing of Even If You Like Meat. Every day, activists are handing many hundreds of these booklets directly to the public -- only your support can allow them to continue to provide the animals a voice.

You may think that your donation won't matter because you think there are many other compassionate people who will donate. But of the tens of thousands of people who receive this newsletter, so far in this campaign, we've heard from only 134 people on-line or via the mail.

If you believe in the work of Vegan Outreach, please donate -- via check or securely on-line at  veganoutreach.org/donate -- whatever you can. We'll continue to work our hardest to guarantee that your donation goes as far as possible.

Thanks!

 

Notes from All Over

Farmers Study Future without Confined Feeding Operations

 

Milk Alone Not Best for Bones

"Tofu, oats, broccoli, juice cited as alternatives.

"Children who drink more milk do not necessarily develop healthier bones, researchers said on Monday in a report that stresses exercise and modest consumption of calcium-rich foods such as tofu."

 

Notes from Our Members

We distributed hundreds of Vegan Outreach booklets today at our feed-in at the University of Arizona. Response was very positive. Everyone was very enthusiastic. Most people took at least one piece of literature. It was great seeing college kids sprawling on the grass, eating veggie burgers or Soy Delicious ice cream sandwiches and reading VO literature with wide eyes.

Our Meatout kicked butt. We handed out a whole box of Why Vegans in the college cafeteria, as well as free samples of veggie chicken. We ended up having to leave an hour early because all of our literature was gone!

Yesterday was my best day yet! I arrived and got to work at Indiana University at Bloomington at 10:15am Indiana time. After the 4.5 hour drive, I knew I had to make the trip worthwhile. Fortunately, the school and the students worked with me on this -- their classes continue on into the evening, so the students kept flowing and I kept leafleting until 8:15pm. I gave out 1,202 EIYLM directly, and a stack of 50 to a female student who wanted to distribute (plus a VAB, and a copy of AML), and another 50 stack to a male student who wanted to distribute (plus a VAB and a copy of AML). I gave 2 other students copies of the VAB and AML and urged them to get involved in leafleting schools. One of these students originally stopped to tell me that she had visited the Vegan Outreach website last summer and it had moved her to become vegan.
