We Did It: Over $350,000 Raised for Outreach!
Because of you, we met – and then exceeded – our year-end fundraising goal of $330,000.
Because of you, more than $350,000 will be put toward outreach in 2015!
Our 11 Outreach Coordinators, along with hundreds of volunteers, will personally hand Vegan Outreach booklets – spreading a message of compassion for animals – to young people throughout the U.S., Canada, Australia, and Mexico! More and more people will read these booklets and be encouraged to make positive changes for animals. Because of you.
Thank you to the 700+ individuals who contributed. From $10 gifts to $10,000 gifts, every one of your donations made a huge difference. And thank you to the handful of incredibly generous supporters who matched donations, enabling us to raise TWICE as much for animals!
More outreach = more vegans = less suffering. Because of you.

Long day in cataclysmic traffic but my favorite campus outreach of the semester maybe!!! I spoke to two students at Norco College for about 10 minutes, and they want to try veg eating together – they are so adorable [below, right].
I saw an insane amount of people reading because many of the booklets went to students waiting for class. I overhead several conversations start; and walking back to the car, I saw a cover-to-cover reader – I had run out of Guides by then but pointed out the number on the back to get one and she was stoked.
Wonderful students at Moreno Valley College. I spoke to a group of three [above, left] for a long time and it was awesome – all three were interested in veg eating and were full of kindness and positive energy. It was a real high to meet so many receptive people and have so many conversations today. Schmoozapalooza!
