Notes from Vegan Outreach
The Most Conservative Estimate
Activists around the world have now distributed more than 5.7 million Vegan Outreach booklets. Assuming only a net 1% change for booklets, 100+ million land animals will be saved from the cruelties of modern animal agriculture over the next 50 years.

Thanks so much to everyone who has made this possible!
Matching Campaign Continues
So far, Vegan Outreach has raised $2,129.89 towards April's $20,000 matching donation challenge. You can help Vegan Outreach receive more of this challenge. All one-time donations marked "Matching" will be doubled. The initial amount of a new quarterly recurring donation will be tripled (i.e. a new $50 quarterly donation will be matched with $100), and the initial amount of a new monthly recurring donation will be quadrupled! (More details here.)
You can donate securely on-line, including setting up recurring donations.
Checks may be mailed to:

Product of the Week

Notes from All Over
Excerpt: "You can call it mock meat. Fake steak. Pretend pork. Faux franks. Truth is, many meat substitutes are remarkably close in appearance and taste to the original. In fact, a recent test of these products produced encouraging results."
Excerpt: "It is consumers, after all, who drive the market. Agribusiness will change--rapidly--when our buying habits change. You are more powerful than you think. Purchase with consciousness and compassion, and the whole world will thank you."
Excerpt: "In June, Atlanta Hawks guard Salim Stoudamire abandoned his diet of junk food and animal-based foods to become the Hawks' only vegan player.... Stoudamire recently sat down to talk about being a vegan in a sport dominated by carnivores..."
Feedback from Our Members
I was given the
Even If You Like Meat brochure
at the University of Michigan last
week and I have decided to go vegan.
I want to thank you for helping
me come to this decision and encourage
people to continue this form of
outreach as it truly does raise
awareness and make a difference!
Here's feedback from an acquaintance who came to my party and got an Even If:
