Notes from Vegan Outreach

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 traveling along Interstate Route 20 in Louisiana and Mississippi. 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


Employer-Based Donation Options

Starbucks' "Make Your Mark" program pays nonprofits $10 per hour when their employees volunteer for a non-profit organization -- up to $1000. So if you work at Starbucks -- or another company with a similar program -- and leaflet for Vegan Outreach, you can help raise money to print more booklets.

Many companies have matching donations programs -- so far, Vegan Outreach has received matching contributions from Google, Microsoft, Home Depot, Hewlett Packard, and other companies. Ask around to see if your company has such a program! And if you work for the federal or a state government, you can often donate pre-tax dollars!

Notes from All Over

It's Better to Green Your Diet than Your Car

excerpt: "Thinking of helping the planet by buying an eco-friendly car? You could do more by going vegan, say Gidon Eshel and Pamela Martin of the University of Chicago." Full article.


High School Opens Vegetarian Lunch Line

excerpt: "However, a new trend--vegetarian-only lunch lines--has started in the unlikeliest of places--the South, home of the "Stroke Belt," long known for its trademark fried and fatty foods and higher rates of heart attacks and strokes than other parts of the country." Full article.


Meat-Like Qualities Whet the US Appetite for Tofu

excerpt: "Xiang F. Kong, once a researcher at the Boston University and Harvard medical schools, spent more than two years developing a tofu with a consistency, texture, and flavor that would appeal to the American palette. In other words, something a lot like meat." Full article.


Notes from Our Members

I'd like to express my gratitude to your organization. Thank you for being such a beacon of rational thought. Thank you for all of the hard work you do, and for your laser-like focus on what is important -- fighting cruelty. I am proud to support your group and programs such as Adopt a College.

I was invited to be a guest speaker at an EarthSave Canada, Youth Group potluck on the weekend. After giving a short talk about my thoughts on meaningful work in general and the handing out of Vegan Outreach booklets in particular, a number of us did just that today. At UBC (University of British Columbia), 6 of us handed out 1,950 booklets. Two others handed out another 400 at Langara College. The total was 2,350 -- about 140/hr/person.
-John Bowers, 1/9/05

I've been telling everyone I know to read Matt Ball’s article “A Meaningful Life.” Everyone is very impressed with it. I know it changed my whole outlook and approach.
