Fundraising Campaign for the New and Improved Why Vegan?
Vegan Outreach has been sending out Why Vegan? brochures at
a sizzling pace – nearly 450,000 in 2002 already! Even though
we recently printed 50,000 copies, we have fewer than 5,000 left.
This means we will run out very soon!
In the meantime, our graphic designer, Lauren Panos, is almost finished
with the next, new and improved version! (Download
a sneak-preview! of the new covers and center spread; 1M
Weve done everything we can imagine – including consulting
with the marketing company Near Bridge, Inc. – to make this new
Why Vegan? the most powerful and reader-friendly
Vegan Outreach normally prints Why Vegan? in batches of 100,000,
but with activists distributing copies at an ever-increasing pace,
this amount does not last long. Quotes from the printer for the next
version are $9,900 for 100,000 copies; $24,000 for 300,000 copies.
If we only print 100,000 at a time, it will cost us
a total of $29,700 for 300,000 brochures. Thus, by doing one batch
of 300,000 we can save $5,700!!
we need your help to raise $13,000 in order to meet our goal of $24,000.
The sooner we reach this target, the sooner well be able to
provide copies of the new Why Vegan? to the many activists who are eager to distribute them.
If just 130 members of Vegan Outreach donate $100 right away, we
will have the new Why Vegan?
in people's hands in only a few weeks.
Please take action today! We will update our web site daily to let
people know how close we are to reaching our goal.
