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.")
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
"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.
