Vegan Outreach Enewsletter  •  November 2, 2005


This issue sponsored by Anton Levin Wilderness Photographs:

I distributed 868 copies of Even If You Like Meat at Old Dominion University today. I met one girl who was explaining how she didn't think this was a winnable battle and that we should stick to other animal campaigns. But later in the day, after she had read the brochure, she came back to say that she thought it would work. She promised to 'do her part.'

(Erin Marcus leaflets at University of Maryland, Baltimore County; photo by Jon Camp.) Below, you can read recent stories of success that your past donations have helped bring about. (For example, you can see this website about CAA's success with using Why Vegan as part of their Veg Week.)

PLEASE NOTE: At current distribution rates, at some point in the next week, Vegan Outreach will no longer be able to fill every order until we reach our $19,000 goal and can do this new printing of 250,000 booklets.

Please help us print more!

Jack Norris writes: "Blood sugar low? These will wake you up -- rice krispie treats made with the marshmallows from Pangea, the only vegan marshmallow on the market at this time. They even have a recipe on the bag, are easy to make, and delicious!"

Rachel Haugley offers: "My suggestion is aimed at all the moms (and dads): 'Tofutti Kids' are wonderful -- it's an ice-cream dessert with either strawberry, lime or orange coating (reminiscent of 'dilly bar' coating). These are awesome! Kudos to Tofutti for staying on top of their game!"


Notes from All Over

New Humane Farming Association Investigations

Two new investigations remind us why our choices and advocacy are so important: South Dakota and Nebraska pig "farms." Excerpt:

"There was one downed sow who laid there for close to a month. The feed was just thrown in there. Feed was piled up around her head about two inches thick. The tears from her eye got covered up with feed. Her eye was encrusted with feed. When she died it was a pretty rotten mess."


Notes from Our Members

Today, I had a number of people tell me that they are now vegetarian / vegan as a result of my handing them a booklet last month. One woman whose words I remember said, "You gave me one last time and now I'm totally vegetarian." One male student to whom I had previously given a Why Vegan stopped and told me that "people are talking about this booklet on campus." I was pleased to hear of this unexpected bonus that students were talking to one another about farmed animal issues, and to know that I helped plant those seeds.

I was handed the Even If You Like Meat guide at my Cal State Long Beach campus. After reading it, I decided to become vegetarian. Today is only my fourth day, but it's a start.

Well, I finally did it! Steve Kaufman and I handed out over 500 Even If You Like Meat pamphlets at Cleveland State University. I feel so good that I overcame my fear of doing this. It was fantastic to see many students walking around campus while intently reading the Even If brochures. I spoke to several people who said they read it cover to cover and had no idea just how horrible conditions for farm animals have become. One guy was especially shocked by what the egg
industry does to male chicks. A few students thanked me for being there.

Every day, we have people out doing vegan outreach with Why Vegan in San Diego. Today two of our outreach folks went to a local college campus and the other two went to a grocery store. Almost all of the college kids stopped, took a Why Vegan, and signed up to receive more info. At the grocery store, at least three people independently stated that they were going to go veg because of our efforts!
-Kath Rogers, APRL, 10/20/05

I posted your "How Vegan" link to an on-line veganism group, and got this response: "Thanks a lot for the article. That's 100% true! I tend to be maybe too ... extreme and discourage people from veganism rather than making them want to change. This article REALLY makes me think!"
