Vegan Outreach Enewsletter  •  August 11, 2002


I have to thank you very sincerely for all the literature you gave us a while back. My partner and I have been extremely short on funds (actually in debt), because we've been spending every resource we have on our own animal rights group in Toronto – the Toronto Animal Rights Society. You sent us over a thousand Why Vegan brochures at no cost, and it has been such a great tool! We have been handing these out at regular outreach events that our group holds, and have received a tremendously positive response.

Today, we did tabling at a Moby concert for 11 hours, and handed out every one of our own remaining Why Vegans, as well as another few hundred that we were provided with, to interested passersby. Everything was so incredibly positive, and so many of the people who approached us with negative comments were completely turned around! This could not have happened without Vegan Outreach's amazing literature, without the donation of the pamphlets. Once again, thank you so much! You have helped us reach so many people. If you could send more Why Vegans, we can assure you they will all be handed out, and we will send you guys donations whenever we can.

News and a Special Request

In addition to the National Day of Leafleting, filling dozens of requests for information every day, and updating the Vegan Starter Pack (the print version of which is now in production), Vegan Outreach has been increasingly busy!

As of August 7, for the year, Vegan Outreach has sent over 350,000 copies of Why Vegan and Vegetarian Living to activists in the U.S. and around the world – an average of over 1,500 a day!

We're currently down to 10,000 copies of Vegetarian Living, and under 8,000 copies of Why Vegan – less than one week's worth at the current distribution rate! Because of this shortage, we haven't been able to fill large orders from dedicated activists, and will soon have no booklets available at all.

During the course of the year, we have been as generous as possible with sending copies of Why Vegan and Vegetarian Living to those in a position to distribute them, regardless of their ability to donate. Now, we need your generosity to be able to continue to speak for the animals and spread the veg message!

After paying outstanding bills for shipping, postage, and other expenses, as well as printing the new version of the Vegan Starter Pack, Vegan Outreach will have less than $10,000 with which to print Why Vegan and Vegetarian Living. These small print runs will have significantly higher per-piece costs, and will give us only about two months to raise funds before we will need to do the next printing.

We believe that increasing the number of vegetarians and vegans is a powerful way to make the world a better place, and Why Vegan and Vegetarian Living are very effective tools to accomplish this. If you agree, please make a special donation to help us continue distributing copies!

You can be sure that your support will lead to more people reading Why Vegan and Vegetarian Living!
