Notes from Vegan Outreach
Good Luck, Eileen!
Eileen Botti, Vegan Outreach’s longtime New York Outreach Coordinator, is moving on. One of our all-time leading leafleters, Eileen has done an incredible job, leafleting in every kind of weather, and even after she lost her voice.
It is a great loss for VO, but we are sure Eileen will continue to be hugely successful in her efforts to make the world a better place. We have been – and continue to be – very fortunate to have her as a colleague and friend. Full post here.
Before You Secede: Texans Needed for Jon
In October, Jon Camp, VO’s Director of Outreach, will be traveling throughout Texas as part of a college outreach tour. In order to make the tour cost-efficient, Jon will be staying with those willing to offer their place to him for a few nights. Jon has found housing in some parts of Texas, but still needs a place to stay in or near San Antonio, McAllen, San Marcos, Killeen, Waco, Nacogdoches, College Station, and Beaumont. If you’d be willing to house America’s Most Courteous Houseguest for 1–3 nights, please contact him via jon(at)veganoutreach(dot)org. Thank you!
The Payoff of Eileen’s Efforts, Jon’s Journeys, Nikki’s ’Nthusiasm…

Previously, I got one of your booklets, and
after reading it, I can’t eat meat ever again.
I think about some poor little creature.… I’m working to
convert my husband.
From a recent batch of Guide requests:
Heard about it at
Warped Tour 2010 and thought about going vegan.
I tried, failed…then after this year’s Warped
Tour, I got another pamphlet and I decided to
do whatever it takes to go vegan.
A friend showed
of your brochures. I knew it was bad but wow.
I went to a concert in
Comerica Park in Detroit. Your brochure changed
the way I see animals.
While waiting in an office at
Lehigh University, I saw a pamphlet on the table
that a professor had distributed. I had tried
being vegetarian a few years ago, but it only
lasted for two weeks. I want to take another
try at it.
I got your booklet at
the Warped Tour. You opened my eyes.
Choices passed to me after
an Animal Collective concert in VA on July 11
really made me start to think about a vegan diet
in a completely different way.
