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 a Guide 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.
     The spot I had to stand at was in the sniffing stream of a BBQ sales crew. A young man passed by me and said, “You convinced me to order the veggie burger instead.” BAM! I stopped by the BBQ crew to ask how many veggie burgers they’d sold, to which the lady greeted me with, “You’re scaring away all of my customers!”

Marsha Hargreaves
At Georgia Southern University, Marsha Hargreaves helps another student live true to their values.

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 as well!

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.”
—Eileen Botti, 9/20/10

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.
—Phil Letten, 9/9/10

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.

SBCC student
Thanks to Nikki Benoit, eyes are opened at Santa Barbara City College by a copy of Compassionate Choices.

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?”
—Fred Tyler, 9/13/10

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.
—Joe Espinosa, 9/17/10

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!
—Derek Phillips, 9/21/10

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.
—Brian Grupe, 9/14/10

Taylor R
The animals are heard by another Los Angeles Community College student, thanks to Taylor R.

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.
—Christopher Grundy, 9/17/10

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.
—Casey Constable, 9/18/10

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.
—Jon Camp, 9/18/10
