Notes from Our Members

UNC student
Eleni Vlachos met this student while leafleting at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. She told Eleni that receiving a copy of Even If You Like Meat two years ago led her to go veg immediately.

I got your booklet and have stopped consuming chicken, pork, and beef. I am trying to stay away from fish, too! I just can’t eat meat – I can’t look at it the same way as before! THANKS!
—PV, 10/18/10

Thank you so much for coming to the University of Georgia! Two people in my choir told me they had read the leaflet and were probably going to cut back on meat. One of them said she cried, so they are clearly thinking about the issue now!
—MB, 10/18/10

Best day ever at Rowan University, where George, Depak, Wink, and I reached over 1,600 students! Lots of laughs and conversations from 7am ’til 11pm – could write a book, but the bottom line is there are many new vegans in Glassboro tonight!
—Vic Sjodin, 9/8/10

I had planned to leaflet the University of British Columbia, Vancouver until 11, but ran out of booklets before 10. Way, way more people told me they were already vegan than ever before!
—Roger Clarke, 9/8/10

At the University of Maine, Orono, a nice young man stopped to thank me for being there. He said, “Some people might be apprehensive or even antagonistic about the information, but I REALLY appreciate what you’re doing.” Two people who initially refused a leaflet came back and said, “I changed my mind; I’ll take one.”

Allie Cornell
Not just colleges! Allie Cornell helps folks at the Virgin Mobile Fest realize the power they have to create a better world for all.

Jennifer Gross and I reached over 900 students at Montana State University, Billings; I was then able to reach 130 at Rocky Mountain College in just 40 minutes. At MSU, one guy took a leaflet and came back again after he read it. He said he was glad he had not eaten breakfast yet, and that he wanted to go vegetarian. I gave him a Guide and he was very excited.
     I also talked to a lady who read over the leaflet and could not believe it. She asked me about some of the veg mock meats and the other material in the back of the leaflet. I gave her a Guide and she was also very excited. She said her three-year-old granddaughter had stopped eating meat and that she also wanted to stop as well. I told her to encourage her granddaughter and also mentioned the VeganHealth.org page of vegan children. She was very grateful for the information and our conversation.
—Phil Letten, 9/8/10

UC Berkeley student
A student at Berkeley is engrossed in her copy of Even If You Like Meat.

At Marist College, Cassandra and I heard many reactions of “Oh, this is so sad!” and “Aww, this is going to make me not want to eat meat anymore!” along with many reporting receiving leaflets in previous semesters.
     Yesterday at Borough of Manhattan Community College, I spoke with a number of students and heard many say, “This made me stop eating meat last year!” and “This pamphlet is the reason I went vegetarian!”
—Eileen Botti, 9/8/10

Great leafleting today at Montgomery College, Takoma Park, as well as Montgomery Blair High School! I chatted with several receptive individuals, including a man who would like to do an interview with me on his public access TV show. And a group of sympathetic folks stopped by and leafleted with me for about 10 minutes.
     Conversation of the day:
     Me: Hi! Have I given you this yet?
     Woman: You’ve not only given it to me, you’ve converted me.
     It turns out that she has been veg for a few years as a result of being leafleted at MC-TP.
