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.
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 veganoutreach.org.
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.'"
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.
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.
from Erik Marcus. My New Year's
resolution for 2006 will be trying
to convert those 500 people!
