Notes from Vegan Outreach

Record | Thanks

Despite the bone-chilling cold gripping much of the nation, Adopt a College activists have handed booklets directly to over 100,000 students and faculty so far this semester. This is over 50% more than at this time last year!

Overall distribution is also proceeding at a record pace. We've already sent out more than 220,000 booklets in 2007, compared to 147,000 by this date in 2006!

To try to keep up with this great demand, Vegan Outreach recently completed a new printing of Even If You Like Meat, and we are about to go to press with the next batch of Why Vegan and the new Spanish Por que vegetariano.

Last year, Vegan Outreach set a record for distribution because we received a record number of donations. We can't say "thank you" enough to everyone who has contributed to exposing and eventually ending the horrors of modern animal agriculture. Please know that it is only because of your generosity that, each and every day, thousands and thousands of people learn about the animals' plight and the compassionate alternative.

With this rapid growth, Vegan Outreach's printing and shipping expenses have outstripped contributions. If you are considering a donation, now would be a great time! You can donate securely on-line, set up automatic recurring donations, or send a check or money order to:

With your help, we can continue to reach more and more people every single day.

Thanks so very much!

Product of the Week

Mae: I nominate Organic Sunshine Burgers -- they are delish! They are made with whole grains, veggies and raw sunflower seeds (and gluten free as well) not too dry or bland. I've had a hard time finding them but have been seeing them in more and more places. Very Good!!

Send your nominees for Product of the Week to info (at) veganoutreach (dot) org; previous products can be found here.

 

Feedback from Our Members

While leafleting at the Galleria Mall, a young boy who had gotten a Why Vegan earlier in the day told me that it was very sad. I then told him that I have another pamphlet also, and handed him a GCFE. His mother said their whole family was definitely going to have to change now. Later, an employee from one of the stores thanked me for giving her a pamphlet earlier, and said that it was definitely something to think about. I gave her a GCFE also.

At the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, I ran into great responses from the students. Many read the booklet while they waited for the light to change; one woman, engrossed in reading the pamphlet, missed the "walk" signal entirely. Several asked for extra copies for their friends. I overheard one man telling his friend that the pamphlet was very important and that he should read about the severe confinement of the chickens.
    The last class change today at the University of Southern Mississippi, tiny though it was, showed me once again that I never know when somebody will be reached by the literature. As I leafleted the tiny trickle of students from the liberal arts building, a man sitting on the steps to whom I had handed an EI earlier came up to me, saying the booklet had motivated him to go veg. And who knows about all the other people during that final class change who stood around reading EI? Even if you only have an hour to leaflet, you can help end this cruelty.

I did my first day of college campus leafleting yesterday at San Francisco State, with three of us distributing over 800 Why Vegans and Even If You Like Meats in about 90 minutes. Students were unbelievably receptive. There were moments when we could barely keep up with the pace! This is a fulfilling way to spend an hour, directly reaching people one on one. Polite and eager to receive the information. It's really a kick.
-Susan Rattenbury, 2/15/07

Here is a colleague who I encouraged to show some enthusiasm after receiving a booklet from Sarat. Later in the day I happened to see her in the library and she told me that after having read through the Why Vegan? booklet that it saddened her. I look forward to talking with her about this topic when I next see her at work.
-John Bowers, 1/18/07

On our mini-tour of Florida universities, we had some great conversations. For example:

Me: "Brochure Against Animal Cruelty?"
Him: "Wow, this stuff could really change a person's mind!"
Me: "Yeah, there's lots of widely unknown information in there."
Him: (Looking at a picture in the booklet) "Oh my gosh! This is definitely going to make me change!"
