Notes from Vegan Outreach

Make a New Year's Resolution to Spread Vegetarianism Every Month!

You know that Vegan Outreach activists are out in public places promoting veganism all over the U.S. and Canada almost every day of the year. But you might not have the time to join them.

How about committing to join these activists with a monthly recurring donation? Each month, a set amount will be charged to your credit card. You don't have to do anything. And you can cancel at any time.

This sort of reliable, constant support really helps Vegan Outreach maintain our campaigns, while giving you the knowledge that you are preventing animal suffering without needing to lift a finger again.

Please: click here -- in only a minute you can help bring about a more compassionate world! At the bottom of the second page, you can choose to have the donation automatically recur monthly or quarterly.

Thank you!


Six Weeks in the South: Help Jon Camp Speak for the Animals!

Jon Camp (at right) is in the planning stages of a six-week college outreach tour through the south, starting January 23. He has found housing for virtually every night of his trip but still needs a place to stay while in Mississippi, Louisiana, and in the Austin and College Station regions of Texas. If you would be willing to house this courteous young man for 1 or 2 nights, this would help ensure the success of the tour, allowing him to reach thousands and thousands more students with the plight of today's farmed animals. Please email him at jon at


Product of the Week

Lynn Halpern nominates "the treats made by the Vegan Baking Company, particularly the Chocolate Peppermint Cream, the Peanut Butter Cup, the Pecan Joy and the S'mores. Each has a different yummy center enrobed in a thick layer of chocolate. They've been flying off the shelves since we began carrying them in our (all-vegan) gourmet market last month. Of further note, the company's website and promotional literature prominently displays the byline, 'Save the Animals.'"

Send your nominees for Product of the Week to; previous products can be found here.


Notes from Our Members

Today at the local mall, I handed out 1,000 Why Vegans. A man complained to me that the pictures in the pamphlet weren't graphic enough. He had a friend who took a job in a slaughterhouse upon being released from prison. This friend told him about what goes on, so he was genuinely upset that the pictures in the Why Vegan were way too mild, as he felt people needed to be shown what really goes on. I told him that if we included the really graphic pictures, then few people would be able to read it, so a balance needs to be struck. He eagerly took a Guide to Cruelty-Free Eating, and thanked me for being out there.
     A woman who works in Dillard’s asked me for more pamphlets. She said that she had gotten one from me earlier, that it made her cry, and that she just wishes there was something we could do about it, like pass a law. I told her that changing the law is very difficult, but that this is one of the few issues where we actually can do something just with our own individual actions. I gave her a GCFE and more Why Vegans. She told me that it was great that I was passing these out, and to keep it up.

I received my order of literature and distributed it to some of my close friends and family members. One person has already told me that he was going to stop eating meat and go vegetarian. I hope more people decide to as well. I feel good that it touched one life so far. Thank you for putting together such moving literature.

Very inspiring words from Erik Marcus. My New Year's resolution for 2006 will be trying to convert those 500 people!
