Notes from Vegan Outreach
2008's 50-State Challenge!
We need your help to have at least one school in every state in the US leafleted this semester! Just pledge to leaflet a college/university/high school in your state and send us the details (photos, too, if you can) of your experience, and we'll send you the Vegan Outreach booklet(s) of your choice.
Activists from the following states
are particularly needed:
Basla Andolsun leaflets at Georgetown U; photo by Jon Camp.
First-time leafleters are heartily welcomed. We'll answer any questions you have before you start -- you can learn more about the whys, hows, and much more at the Adopt a College site -- and we'll try to hook you up with an experienced leafleter as much as possible.
Please send your pledge -- school(s) to be leafleted, your shipping address, and any questions -- to Anne, anne (at) veganoutreach (dot) org. Please indicate which booklet(s) you'd like, and how many you expect to distribute.
Let's reach students in each state in 2008!
Product of the Week
Theresa: I have just discovered Larabars. They are raw, unprocessed and really good for you. They are made with only a few ingredients and are very tasty.
Notes from All Over
From The Washington Post:
Notes from Our Members
my week of leafleting across
British Columbia, seven of us [including
Roger Clark, Marley Daviduck, and
Marysia McGilvray, pictured]
handed booklets to a total of 6,151
students! I am confident that this
will ultimately translate into many
thousands of animals being spared
from a life of suffering. So many
students were genuinely grateful
to have received this information.
For example, one student today reached
out and held my hands and said in
a gentle voice "I got one from
you yesterday -- Thank you!"
At Santa Clara U,
many said they'd already received
an Even If You Like Meat
(from Victor) last semester. Some
still had it at home! Miranda handed
the booklet to one girl, and before
she could hand one to her friend,
the friend had snatched the EI
out of the original recipient's
hands with a squeal of delight.
She turned around and waved the
booklet and yelled, "Thanks!"
