From Our Members

I went vegan because of Vegan Outreach, and though it's hard for me to believe, that was over four and a half years ago now. I recently had some blood work done, and I was in the healthy range for everything -- including the famed B12! My doctor also told me that I have less than half the average risk for men in the United States for heart attack or stroke. Because of what I learned from Vegan Outreach, I eat a healthy varied diet and I supplement that with a multivitamin, B12, Calcium/D, and flaxseed oil. I'm not that rigorous at taking them (probably only average once a week) but it seems to be all I need! The doctor was impressed, and he even asked me a few questions about veganism. He added that he's noticed he feels better when he doesn't eat meat. I wish I had a Why Vegan? with me!

On my first day at U. MN, I received a pamphlet about the cruelty that happens to animals in the meat industry. After viewing the pictures and reading the heart-breaking stories, I am no longer going to eat meat. It has now only been 3 days, but I have been meat-free and feel great. I'm interested in helping any way I can.

I want to thank you so much for your site. I cried like a baby when I read it. It is time to advance myself and become a vegan. Last night my little boy (who is 12) was crying. When I asked him why he responded, "I was thinking of all the poor animals who are frightened before they are killed to be eaten." I tried to comfort him, but the truth must be known to all. He took solace in the fact that he would never have to be part of this butchery.

After reading "Activism and Veganism," I realized that I am responsible for being "Vegan Police" on occasion. I feel terrible about this and have decided that I want to help promote veganism. This essay has really opened my eyes, and I'm not going to whine in front of non-vegans anymore.

This past weekend Action for Animals tabled at 3 Dave Matthews concerts at the Gorge Amphitheater in central Washington and at Bumbershoot, a Seattle music festival. We were able to distribute 4,200 copies of Why Vegan in four days at the two events! Without Vegan Outreach and your members' support, we would not have been able to have such a successful weekend of outreach.
