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!

Send your product of the week to info (at) veganoutreach (dot) org; previous entries.

Lightning Round


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.

After 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.

At 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.
-Brian Grupe, 1/5/09

I just read A Meaningful Life and decided I needed to do more. Here is my recurring donation.
