Dollar-for-Dollar Matching Opportunity!

We all strive to make the world a better place. Over the past 15 years, we’ve discovered a simple and straightforward way to maximize our impact, based on a few simple facts:



Vegetarians save animals.

If there is to be real, fundamental change for the animals, there need to be many, many more vegetarians -- people who stand up and say it is simply wrong to butcher an animal for a fleeting taste of flesh!

Booklets create vegetarians.

As documented in every enewsletter, Vegan Outreach activists constantly hear from people whose lives have been changed by our detailed, documented booklets. There is a growing hunger for this information!

Your donation distributes booklets.

You are the vital link -- the number of people who receive a booklet and learn the truth is dependent on your donation! Without your support, activists can’t reach as many people. You can know that your money will put more booklets into more hands.

It is clear and undeniable:

Your donation = more booklets = more vegetarians = more animals saved.

And until the end of the year, other generous donors who recognize the simple logic and power of this work will double your donation, dollar-for-dollar, up to $54,500!

You can be a big part of creating a fundamentally better world -- and today, your tax-deductible donation will save twice as many animals!

Notes from Our Members

At Wayne State, Italia [Millan, shown above] and I started leafletting at 7:40 am. It was bone cold with whipping winds. By ten, our frozen fingers refused to move and we were thumbing leaflets at people. Many people did take their hands out of their coat pockets for a leaflet. We had numerous positive interactions, and four different people said they were going vegetarian today after reading the leaflet!

One of your pamphlets converted me. It was handed to me on the University of Chicago campus on October 9th, and I haven't eaten meat since. Thanks to the guy who handed them out in a quiet, respectful manner, and thank you for opening my eyes to the reality of what goes on in factory farms -- the American public is being effectively blinded from this information.
-Sarah G, 11/3/08

Wendy Moore, JC Corcoran, three members of Speak Out for Species, and I handed out 2,775 booklets at the University of Georgia today. One of the SOS volunteers had received a booklet from Eric Griffith earlier in the year, which led to her going veg and getting active. Her father then went veg, and her mom now eats less meat.
-Jon Camp, 10/29/08

At the University of Illinois, Chicago, Leah [Wagner, at right], and I met many vegetarians and five vegans. A student came up to let me know that she had become vegetarian as a result of getting the booklet from me in the past.
-Joe Espinosa, 10/24/08

At the University of Colorado, Boulder, I met a woman who had been vegan for just two weeks and was having trouble finding recipes and figuring out what some obscure ingredients were. We chatted awhile, I gave her a Guide to Cruelty-Free Eating, showed her the glossary page, jotted down some recipe websites to peruse, and gave her a "vegan" button. She left seeming more sure of her choice and noticeably more enthused -- almost bubbly -- about it.
-Barbara Bear, 10/30/08

At Anoka Ramsey Community College, a group of five women all wanted a booklet because one of their friends had shown them one. I met a guy that had tried being vegan before, but said it was really hard. I gave him a Guide and explained that he could just do a little at a time. The realization that it wasn't all or nothing seemed to cheer him.
-Fred Tyler, 10/27/08

Leafleting in Portland today, some people cheered when they saw us. I handed a Compassionate Choices to a couple who were excited to receive the booklet, and when I turned around I heard the guy say to the girl, "I'm going to take this to the barbecue later today."
-Jessica Dadds, 10/28/08

At Sacramento State, I was told by one student that she gave up meat after seeing our lit and was shocked at how these companies are being run. I also met a professor who told me he gets the enewsletter and was interested in helping me out sometime.
-Eric Paul, 10/30/08

At the Voodoo Fest in New Orleans, I saw many groups gathered around the one little leaflet I gave them. As soon as I got there, one of the police officers asked what I was handing out, so I gave her a Why Vegan, which she looked through and kept. Then other police officers saw what she had and said, "You need to give one of those to that guy over there." So I brought him an Even If You Like Meat booklet and said, "Your friends said you needed one of these." They smiled and waved at him. Several hours later the same police officer brought me an ice cold bottle of water from his car.
-Twila Hoyle, 10/27/08

Some great interactions at MIT today. One really stands out: I met a very soft-spoken, gentle Muslim student who blessed me for doing such noble and selfless work on behalf of animals. He told me he was mostly vegan. We talked about veganism and animal rights and we both left the conversation happy to have conversed with the other.
     Earlier, at the Community College of Rhode Island, a vegan told me that the booklets had created a ton of discussion in her English class. One administrator stopped to berate me, which attracted five students who all wanted booklets. A few of them ended up standing around talking about the booklets while I packed up. In the elevator on the way up to find out about a table, one gentleman remarked, "Hey, you're the guy handing out flyers right? Can I have one?" Everyone in the packed elevator then took one.
