Note from Vegan Outreach
Because of your generosity to Vegan Outreach’s End-of-Year fundraiser, we have distributed over 1.1 million booklets already in 2012.
This puts us on pace for a record year!
Will we be able to distribute 3+ million booklets this year? You decide!
Via Team Vegan 2012, you can double your donation, print twice as many booklets, and create twice as many vegetarians!
It’s so easy to contribute: Just click over to the Team and choose a member!

the rain, nearly 100% take rate
at Kean University, and almost 95% at Union
County College. One girl was really enthusiastic
and might be helping out in the future. We had

who challenged our views with questions, but
we answered them all and he went away interested.

Naugatuck Valley Community College, one
student told me he has reduced his animal product
consumption by half since receiving an Even
If You Like Meat from me last semester.
Another student said she went vegetarian in
June and wanted support – we talked a bit and
she got a Guide and my card. A professor
gave me his card, and said he would like to
interview me for the school paper so the students
can get a different viewpoint on animals raised
for food. As I was leaving, a student I had
leafleted earlier asked me if he could help
me. I gave him a stack of 50 Compassionate
Choices, and he started immediately!
a vacation day and was out of
bed at 1 am to make it to Central Michigan University,
where I reached over 1,200 students. Good conversations
too, including several about harm reduction
with students currently unwilling to go veg.
Eight more vacation days that will be used in

very interested; I chatted with one guy for
a solid 10 minutes who will probably go veg.

Alto and Shippensburg University. The best was
at the end. Shortly after chatting with two
young women who take part in the school’s animal
advocacy club, and exchanging contact info,
two separate young women walked up to Eric and
were asking him questions about going veg. They
were really intrigued and asked about 10 minutes
worth of questions. Eric did a great job responding
with answers that were reasonable, honest, and
easy to understand.
to me, it was high school senior
appreciation day at Irvine Valley College. When
I found out, I almost passed out with excitement.
At least 600 (of 1,500) booklets went into eager
high school students’ goody bags. You couldn’t
slap the giggle outta me.
