Vegan Outreach Enewsletter  •  September 18, 2003


At the forefront for the animals – every day.

I just received the box of Try Vegetarian today, and am totally blown away by its amazing wonderfulness. It's just perfect in every way. What an astounding outreach tool. And, I'm so thrilled that I've got them in time for the Peace Festival at Cornell this weekend - thanks! This new publication will create tens of thousands of new vegans.

I decided to leave a Why Vegan on every table in the cafeteria over lunch time. Then, I sat in a corner and watched. People were reading the Why Vegans! Most of them put them in their book bags. I didn't see a single one thrown away.

Excerpts: Editorial in The Sunday Telegraph, Australia's Largest Paper

"All of us can share in the task of alleviating the suffering of factory-farmed chickens.

"We can refuse to buy poultry not certifiably cruelty-free. Each time we buy a chicken from the supermarket or a box of chicken wings from KFC, we should ask if the chickens were reared inhumanely."

More Feedback

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the Vegan Starter Pack. I have been a vegetarian for almost a year now, and becoming a vegan has become a goal I want to achieve. The Why Vegan pamphlet helped me to realize just how cruel animal consumption is, both the taking of an animal life for our table, as well as the conditions with which this is done. It is truly abhorrent to see the pictures of the slaughterhouse and the animals inside them.
    The health information about being vegan was also very informative and helpful. It brought the nutritional needs and special attentions required for vegans into a simple, concise format for one to read and educate themselves with. It seems a lot less intimidating to be healthy while avoiding animal products when a simple guide such as this can be available.
    Thank you again for such a great publication, and for having good, solid information out there for the public to find and, hopefully, learn from.

After reading Why Vegan? and seeing what goes on, I became vegan instantly and have not felt better than I have in the past few months. I hadn't a clue what went on at factory farms. Thank You so much!

I'm so happy that you were able to hand out the Why Vegan? pamphlets at the Warped tour. That was where I received mine, and that is why I have become a vegan. I just thought I'd tell you that you've touched at least one, if not hundreds, of people.

Thank you – I received my Vegan Starter Pack today. As I was looking through Why Vegan, I literally started crying. I had no idea what went on.
