[B]eing vegan is not only the most efficient way to be full-body strong, it’s also the most humane; everyone wins.
At age 39, having been omnivorous my entire life, I was handed a leaflet in September of 2013 on campus at [American River College] and became a vegan that day as a result. Then I started leafleting for Vegan Outreach this past March.
It really is basic: The more people who receive a booklet, the more lives are saved.
Only Days Left for Matching!
Following the success of Team Vegan 2013, Vegan Outreach leafleters reached a record 996,290 students at 897 schools during fall 2013 – more students handed a booklet than ever before!
Vegan Outreach is now poised to have another record-setting fall semester, with a full slate of awesome outreach coordinators ready to go.
Our latest addition is Kristin Lamy, who will be doing an extensive tour of Canada!
A recent survey showed that one animal is spared from a miserable life of pain and suffering on a factory farm for every two booklets handed out.
You’ll double the number of animals you spare from factory farming by donating today – before the matching challenge runs out!

I thought it was going to be a slow day leafleting Millersville University the day after Easter, but surprisingly it picked up pretty quickly! I met Jessica [right], a student who went veg after reading a booklet her brother received from us in the past! YAY! You never know who is reading!
The highlight at the University of South Dakota was running into Avid [left], who I met last fall. He came by to say hi, and let me know he’s been vegetarian for 3 months now. He didn’t go veg right away, because he was worried about protein; but after doing more research, he’s a confident and healthy veggie. He’s also started powerlifting.
Rachel snapped this pic of Avid on 10/7/13, after he stopped to ask her what he could do to help: “We talked about how cutting back on one’s meat consumption reduces animal suffering and he said, ‘I can do that!’”
Whoa! I love the students at the gritty El Camino College Compton Center. Outstanding day of small school outreach. I saw so many people sitting outside or in the library foyer reading – it was spectacular to see.
I met Anna [left], who was reading a booklet and walking. She said, “This is really interesting” and we ended up having a long conversation. She volunteered that she had thought about going veg sometimes, and this is exactly the knowledge and info she needed. It was such a nice conversation.
