Notes from Vegan Outreach
Team Vegan Powers Ahead
This week, we’d like to highlight some of Team Vegan’s top volunteer leafleters:
Joe Espinosa, Leslie Patterson, John Oberg, Yvonne LeGrice, Brandon Becker, Linda Bower, Eric Griffith, Lisa Hines, Tamara Hubbard, Karen James, John Sakars, Sean Scherer, Nettie Schwager, Elaine Vigneault.
If you’d like more people to learn the truth behind meat, eggs, and dairy, and start taking action for the animals, you can make a tax-deductible contribution to any of these members (or the people in the feedback section below, or via the Team Vegan general donations page).
And your donation will be matched, dollar for dollar!
Thanks so much!
