Loads of students at
Rio Hondo College thanked me for the booklet.
Thanks to the Compassionate Choices,
a married mother of two is now veg; she took
and will be converting her family posthaste.
Next I met a vegan who’s doing a report on this
and took 33 booklets for the class.
Reached 2,300 students
at North Carolina State University today. One
told me: “I read the pamphlet you gave
me earlier and now I’m going vegetarian.”
I thanked her for making this change and she
gladly took a Guide. Another student
told me she regularly eats vegan food prepared
from a vegan cookbook shared among her roommates;
she happily took a Guide. Yet another
student told me she cried in her chemistry class
looking at the booklet; she took a Guide
Very positive day at
the College of Staten Island; Cassandra and
I kept hearing from people who had received
a booklet in previous years. Overheard many
other people say things like, “Awww, that’s
so sad” while reading their booklet. We
also saw conversations along the lines of a
tough guy starting with, “Whatever, they’re
just animals,” and ending with, “Well,
yeah, that is really cruel.”
Jennifer, Michele, and I
had pretty high acceptance at Montana State.
I told the many cowboys there they look tough,
yet compassionate. Michele talked to a person
who, having received a booklet in the past,
cut almost all meat out of her diet since and
is now almost vegetarian. She got a Guide.
Kate and I met many
more vegetarians and vegans at DePaul University
than last time. I also met a guy collecting
signatures for a gay rights issue who commended
our work. He said he knew many people who became
veg because of receiving a booklet.
A great day of outreach
at Inver Hills Community College. After reading
the booklet, a woman came back and said, “I
want to thank you for doing this. Who are we
to slaughter them? They have a life of their
own. We don’t want to be killed like that, so
why should we do that to them?”
Many students at
the University of Illinois at Chicago reported
having one already from past outings. Several
students, both male and female, commented that
the booklet was sad/ made them cry. I let them
know they have the power to spare animals
from such horrible lives and deaths.
I handed out all 100 booklets
in just 45 minutes at St. Petersburg Community
College! Thank you so much for your help. I
can’t tell you how good it felt today watching
about 90% of people reading the booklet as they
walked away, and about 15% actually sitting
down to read it. This has increased my motivation
– I am really excited to continue!
Today, Jeni and Micah
reported good leafleting at Sacramento City
College, where they reached 700 students. They
heard from a number of vegetarian/ vegans; two
individuals reported having changed their diet
as a result of receiving booklets in the past.
Mostly amiable responses at
the University of Oklahoma, where I gave out
all my booklets, including quite a few Guides
to people interested in going vegan. One guy
told me it was a Vegan Outreach booklet in his
first year at OU that convinced him to go veg.
Lots of interest at
Baylor University. A number of people mentioned
going veg from getting a booklet in the past.
This is something I hear regularly but fail
to report since I hear it so much – I
know most change without saying so.
Darina and I had
a long but awesome day of leafleting at Virginia
Commonwealth University and the University of
Virginia, where we reached a combined 2,252
students. One young woman let us know that it
was receiving the Even If You Like Meat booklet four years ago
that convinced her to become a vegetarian. Then, a young man let me
know that he had just celebrated his two-year
anniversary of going veg; again, it was an Even
If You Like Meat booklet handed to him
on campus that got him on board.
keep moving forward!
