Vegan Outreach Enewsletter  •  September 20, 2006

 

In addition to a concert today, I also leafleted outside the Saturday evening sermon at the Lakewood Church. One couple at the Church told me that they got this pamphlet last week, and that they are now almost vegetarian as a result, and are continuing to make changes. They had visited VO's website; I gave them a GCFE.
     I ran into lots of vegans at both the church and at the concert. It seems like we are everywhere now.
     I've now gotten used to people at concerts telling me they are vegan. But even I was stunned by hearing this from lots of conservative people outside the largest church in the country. And to think: a few decades ago, it was extremely rare to run into a vegetarian, let alone a vegan.
     Just think where we will be in another several decades.
     This is my main motivating factor in handing out so many pamphlets. It isn't just about reducing the number of animals killed in slaughterhouses from 10 billion down to 9.5 billion. It is about the end game. If we work hard enough, we will see it in our lifetimes.

Adopt a College Charges Ahead

Already this semester, Adopt a College activists have distributed over 60,000 booklets -- this is more than the total for all of Spring 2004!

Overall, the program has reached more than 715,000 individual students with thorough, compelling information. Based on our estimates, the AAC program has now spared over 31 million birds and mammals from the horrors of factory farms and industrial slaughterhouses!

For the year, overall distribution is just under 900,000 -- already more than all of 2005!

Notes from Our Members

We had an incredibly receptive crowd at the University of New Hampshire, which made the time go by so quickly. I talked to at least four students for an extended period of time about the information in the brochures, which was really refreshing. Many students took a GCFE and said they would try to eat vegetarian. Inspiring!
-Jenna Calabrese, 9/14/06

At the University of Victoria today, I overheard a student telling her friend that she had walked in on her roommate last week who was crying while reading an Even If You Like Meat booklet.
-John Bowers, 9/14/06

Here's a little success story from the old school, black and white Why Vegan. [Editor's note: Many years ago, Why Vegan was black and white. To see what it looked like, click here.] The main coordinator for this year's CAA's annual Veg Pledge Food Showcase was telling me that her fiancé went vegan back in '98/'99 after getting a WV and has stuck with it since. In turn, he's the one that got her to go vegetarian and subsequently vegan, and now she's a regular volunteer with CAA! I think her fiancé got the pamphlet after a concert, which could have well been passed out by a CAA volunteer back-in-the-day.
