Adopt a College in Australia: Up and Running!
For the first time ever, Vegan Outreach has expanded outside North America!
Chelsea Collins is currently touring across Australia, going to dozens of universities. She and her volunteers have reached over 20,000 students in the first few weeks!
Chelsea says: “It’s going even better than I expected. I knew that the booklet would make a big impact, but I’ve been really blown away to find out how many people are excited to get out there and leaflet. They tell me they are uplifted by it and can’t wait to do it again. With a growing list of Aussie leafleters, we are going to make an even bigger impact for the animals as time rolls on!”
If you want to get involved, please contact Chelsea at ChelseaC (at) VeganOutreach (dot) org.
We’re very excited about the expansion of this important work to the land down under. Go, Chelsea!
It was a really cold and rainy morning at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. I was really excited that first-time leafleters Tonja, Richard, and Frazer joined Rachael and me. After getting them set up in our usual spot, Rachael and I went exploring and found a 10-story building that was going crazy! It was like a blur of bodies and leaflets. All of a sudden all the booklets were gone! Despite being a little nervous, they had a wonderful time and I think they’ll be leafleting again soon! All together we set an all-time record for any school in Australia – 3,000 VO booklets!
I just leafleted for the first time!!! It went really well – people [at Edith Cowan University in Perth] were very receptive and kind.
I was a bit nervous when I began leafleting for the first time. But I had a great time and I’ll definitely be leafleting for Vegan Outreach again!
