Notes from Vegan Outreach

Double Your Donation!

Vegan Outreach has received a conditional donation of $5,000 from a dedicated supporter, but this supporter has asked that we do not cash the check until we raise an equivalent amount from other sources. So, please give whatever you can today, and your donation will mean twice as much to the animals! (Please mark donations "conditional grant.")


Summer Happenings

With conferences, talks, and other travel, the office will be closed at times between June 7 and August 7. Merchandise and booklet orders may be delayed during this time so please plan ahead -- order the materials you will need for your summer outreach today. Thanks!


Products of the Week

Hyla writes: "Wildwood makes the very very best soy products! Soy yogurt, their plain, is really fabulous. NO SUGAR! This makes it so much better. And their soy milk - chocolate, is so excellent. We like it even better than Silk, which we are quite familiar with as well."

Amie Hamlin offers: "Tofurky Sausages - they're huge, they're delicious, they blur the line between real meat and fake. I don't like fake meats, but these are truly good. Saute the Sweet Italian Sausage flavor (contains sun dried tomatoes and basil) and then add to spaghetti sauce; saute the Beer Brats (made with microbrewed beer) with onions and peppers, and eat on bread. Do the same with the Kielbasas. If anyone thinks they're not getting enough protein on a veg diet, these pack 29 grams each!"

And for some of the non-human readers out there, Veronica says: "My vegan dogs loooove Greenies and Greenies P-Nutz. Great for their teeth, too!"

Notes from All Over

Tortured by Tyson

"From December 2004 through February 2005, a PETA undercover investigator worked on the slaughter line of a Tyson Foods chicken processing plant in Heflin, Alabama. Using a hidden camera, he documented the treatment of the more than 100,000 chickens killed every day in the plant." Warning: Disturbing video.


Notes from Our Members

I went to a lecture downtown and I picked up some brochures and read through them and I saw this website. I saw you could get a free vegetarian starter packet. I have been wanting to go veg but I didn't know how to start and I hope this packet will help me to start.

I went to a concert about 4 or 5 years ago and a band that played had Vegan Outreach's Why Vegan? pamphlets. That is a great pamphlet for people to learn with! I turned vegan after reading that and learning more about it. I was wondering if I might be able to get a pack of those pamphlets -- no matter whether you can send me 5 or 500, I can distribute many packets, stickers, posters, anything. The more you can send me, the more people will learn.
