Notes from Vegan Outreach
New Year's Accomplishments and Resolutions
On January 3, Stewart Solomon (at right) handed out 1,610 Even If booklets at Cal Poly Pomona, putting the Adopt a College program over the 1,000,000 booklet mark since its inception in the fall of 2003 -- one million young people who have personally received a thorough, honest, and powerful case against factory-farming and the compassionate vegetarian alternative.
We are committed to reaching the next million students more quickly, but we can't do it without your help! Please resolve this year to Adopt a College and/or contribute to print and distribute new booklets.
Consider setting up an automatic recurring donation -- these set, regular donations allow Vegan Outreach to plan more efficiently. If you had set up a recurring donation in the past, please check to see if it is still active (e.g., if your card expired).
Finally, look for this eNewsletter on Wednesdays -- if you don't receive it, check to see if your ISP or e-mail client has filtered or blocked it (if you run a whitelist, please add this eNewsletter). If there is something you would like to see in future issues, please let us know.
With your help, we can make 2007 the best year for the animals yet!

He will need housing in southern MO, southern IL, and southern IN.
Note: On January 9, Jon (at right) handed out his 200,000th booklet for Adopt a College! Way to go, Jon!!
Jenna will leaflet throughout MA, RI, upstate NY, NYC, CT, NH, and VT.
If you would be willing to house Victor or Jon, please email tour(at)veganoutreach(dot)org. Moreover, all three of these individuals would be grateful for any volunteer help and are available to give talks at your local college or to your local organization.
Thanks so much to everyone who has helped out with tours in the past. Through your generosity, we’ve been able to run cost-efficient nation-wide outreach, reaching hundreds of thousands of students, while continuing to expand our outreach efforts for the animals.
Product of the Week
Josh Warchol: I'd like to suggest Nasoya Tangy Blue Vegan Dressing. Part of a new line of refrigerated vegan dressings, it tastes very good on a salad or for dipping buffalo-style veggie chik'n strips.
