Notes from Our Members

Alexandra Paul
Alexandra Paul takes the animals’ message to another student at Santa Monica College.

Amazing numbers – incredibly impressive! It really is helpful to see how resources are being so effectively used. Also, that’s really very interesting about Bon Appetit – I think that’s a very powerful benchmark – a huge increase, and I believe that your efforts can take the credit!

Reached 680 more at Cal State Long Beach – feel the love! Heard many thanks and felt some shift in real time.
     Just gotta say how grateful I am to have the chance to speak for animals, opening eyes and hearts, carrying out the vision of you amazing humans with Vegan Outreach. I can’t thank you enough for all you do, donors and volunteers. I’m completely honored to have the ability to help.
—Nikki Benoit, 6/6/11

Hot dang, the kids at Oakland Technical High School were great! Jeni and I have done this school before and we don’t remember everyone being as receptive. Got some funny comments, heartfelt ones, and a little bit of healthy antagonism. Only a few booklets ended up on the ground; we saw many more kids reading them.
—Brian Grupe, 6/8/11

The crowd at The Decemberists concert was so good it was surreal – we quickly reached 650 polite and responsive individuals. I also ran into a lad who said, “Vegan Outreach, right?” Me: “Yes!” Lad: “Awesome!” And, as always, it was great to leaflet with Kate and Aaron!
—Jon Camp, 6/13/11

My communications class final was a speech. I chose mine to be on eating a plant-based diet, and gave everyone a booklet. It went fantastic. I also brought in vegan cookies. I don’t think I’ve been more pleased, until I saw my grade on it: 280/280. My instructor’s note: “Great delivery, pace, and eye contact. I won’t lie, the cookies also helped your grade.”

David Coman-Hidy
By any means possible: David Coman-Hidy goes to great lengths to reach more people at Warped Tour’s Minneapolis stop.

Been tied up on weekdays lately, so I was really happy to see a semi-full parking lot when I passed by Miami-Dade College. Leafleting went great – many students immediately looking through the info. Sad to think of the moral blindness so many go through their lives in, but at the same time experiencing that makes the fact that I stopped in today an even more worthwhile time spent for me. That’s one of the best things about leafleting in my book – no one can ever accuse us of preaching to the choir, now can they? I think not.
—Yuri Mitzkewich, 6/11/11

Lori Atkinson and I went to the big farmers’ market in San Francisco at the Ferry Building on Saturday. We handed out 170 in 40 minutes and, as far as we could see, there were no throwaways.
     I’ve been so happy to find Vegan Outreach so I could finally do something. It has helped relieve me of that terrible sick feeling I get in my stomach thinking about what is happening to millions of animals at that very moment.
