Celebrating Jon’s Million and YOU!
One fine evening two weeks ago, people from all various corners of the country (and beyond) descended upon Rockville, Maryland for a celebration of one of the greatest feats any animal activist has ever achieved.
After a decade of intense travel with support from many around North America, VO’s Executive Vice President, Jon Camp, was able to hand out his one-millionth booklet at the University of Georgia earlier this year. For this monumental achievement, people came together from Los Angeles, Boston, Seattle, Chicago, San Francisco, Charlotte, New York, Detroit, Philadelphia, Dallas, and even Melbourne, Australia to give Jon the due props he deserves. Jack Norris, VO’s Executive Director, wrote a statement summarizing it perfectly: “Jon made VO’s mission his mission, and he was unstoppable.” It was a truly memorable night.
Jon’s million is an example of what can be accomplished with years of dedication fueled by long-term support from the Vegan Outreach community. Not a moment went by during the celebration that members of Vegan Outreach didn’t remember who made Jon’s accomplishment possible – YOU. Without your support, Jon’s million would still be a pipe dream. We still have a lot of work to do and many more millions of booklets to get out to the public. Following the celebration, the entire Vegan Outreach team felt a renewed sense of excitement, and we appreciate your continued support during this Team Vegan fundraising time!
