Adopt a College: Starts the Semester with a Bang!

Many colleges start classes in late August, and Vegan Outreach's leafleters were ready for them! From Monday August 22 to early Tuesday September 6, Adopt a College leafleters handed a whopping 27,585 pamphlets to college students -- more than the entire total for the Fall 2003 semester!! Keep up the great work everyone!

 

Adopt an Adopter!

Jon Camp (leafleting here at Temple; photo by Olympia Saint-Auguste) is planning a two week leafleting tour starting in mid-October. If you live near any of the following colleges and would be willing to house this courteous young man for 1 to 3 nights, please email jon@veganoutreach.org:

VA Tech (Blacksburg), E TN State U (Johnson City), U of TN (Knoxville), Middle TN (Murfreesboro), Western KY (Bowling Green), U of Louisville, U of KY (Lexington), Eastern KY (Richmond), Marshall U (Huntington, WV), West Virginia U (Morgantown).

You can help Jon reach thousands of new students. Thanks!

Product of the Week: Better than Cream Cheese

Christopher Scott writes: "I was given an 8 oz. tub of Tofutti brand Better Than Cream Cheese - plain. I think it must have been a mistake because it is so good! It has a slight nutty flavor like Wheat Thins - I had a hard time not eating the whole thing at one shot! The only reason I didn't is that one ounce has 80 calories so I only ate half the container at a time."

The Vegetarian Option -- Foxtrot Cartoon

 

Notes from Our Members

I've been a vegan for years, but only recently (after reading Meat Market) have I felt a really strong pull towards activism. In the past I've been so overwhelmed by the enormity of the animal rights issues that I strangely retreated into doing little to no activism at all. I'm at this point right now where I'm feeling like just my own adherence to a vegan diet is not enough. I can't be quiet about these things anymore and I regret that I've not done any activism on behalf of the suffering animals in the past. Not really knowing where to start, I emailed Erik Marcus for advice about activism, and he told me about your Adopt a College program.

Today I leafleted at the Rutgers campus in New Brunswick, NJ. After about a minute or two of leafleting, one guy let me know that he got a booklet from me last October, went vegetarian after receiving it, and shortly after, went vegan. He said he's been very happy with his veganism and shook my hand as a way of thanking me for my role in this. Shortly after that encounter, a nice young man came up to let me know that his class just started to read some writings by Peter Singer and Michael Pollan regarding animal issues, and stated emphatically that this booklet will be very helpful to him.

I read your booklet about opposing the cruelties of factory farming, and I cried so much ... broke my heart to see how poor animals are treated. I'm so disgusted. Since I read the book, I get sick to my stomach every time I see people eating anything that comes out of killed animals. My meat days are so over! Thank you so very much for this kind of information. I'm letting all my friends and family know about this organization so we can all support and somehow help out!
