Notes from Vegan Outreach
Can't Get Enough Camp!
Last month, Vegan Outreach ran a short spot on Jon Camp, who is soon to embark on his East Coast tour. Contact him at jon (at) veganoutreach (dot) org if you'd like to leaflet with him or have him speak to your group.
This week, Mark Hawthorne offers this interview with VO's dedicated and hardworking Director of Outreach.
Wanted: More Vegan Kids!
Vegan Outreach is looking to update our site on Real Vegan Children. If you know of a lifelong vegan, or want to update an existing profile, please contact jack (at) veganoutreach (dot) org. We're also looking for thoughts (such as these) from lifelong vegan kids.
Products of the Week
Brandi: I highly recommend Sticky Fingers Bakery in DC. They ship all over the United States, and they make fantastic cakes, muffins, etc.
Carol: Tofutti Rich Reward Bars -- the chocolate around the bar is to DIE FOR and the vanilla underneath is so rich and smooth with ribbons of berry throughout -- only 168 calories!
Notes from All Over
Notes from Our Members
At the University of
Chicago today, I heard
from 2 students who had just moved
from vegetarian to vegan, and another
student who stated that she and
her family had just gone vegetarian
this week. They got the Guide,
as did another vegetarian I encountered.
my second day at school,
I have only two booklets left. One
girl told me she has a friend who
was pregnant and a vegetarian, and
her doctor told her it would not
be safe for her to not eat some
kind of meat because she was lacking
in protein. I told her that was
a shame, because I had a perfectly
healthy baby who is still a vegetarian
and is very smart and tall. I enjoyed
reaching out to people about something
that is so important to me. Having
a document like this makes me feel
like I am not alone in seeing the
world for how it really is. People
seem like they are asleep to the
suffering of animals, which in my
opinion, is the reason for all the
rest of the suffering that goes
on. As long as I have pamphlets,
I will keep passing them out.

Portland State, I
met a bunch of vegans, and one guy
who became vegan last year after
receiving an Even If You Like
Meat. I overheard a lot of
people talking about veganism after
they saw the Even Ifs.
I found a pretty good
audience at California
State University -- East Bay. Almost
no antagonism and a number of excited
vegetarians and vegans, all of whom
took a Guide.
I just read
Meaningful Life and decided
I needed to do more. Here is my
