Notes from Vegan Outreach

Note from Jon Camp

Thank you so much to everyone who has offered to house me for my upcoming tour from Maryland to Illinois. Due to your generosity, everything is now lined up on that end.

Tomorrow I will be leafleting Frostburg U of MD and on Friday, Penn State. Next week I will be leafleting Indiana U of PA, U of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon, Art Institute of Pittsburgh, West Virginia U, Clarion U of PA, and California U of PA. The following week I will be leafleting Kent State U, U of Akron, Youngstown State U, Cleveland State U, and Bowling Green State U. If you would like to leaflet with me or if you would like me to give a talk to your local or student group, please email jon at veganoutreach.org. Thank you!

 

Congratulations, Eugene!

Texas-based activist Eugene Khutoryansky recently handed out his 100,000th Vegan Outreach booklet. Over the years, he's spent countless hours on college campuses, at malls, and outside of concerts reaching out to new people.

 

Second & Final Notice for Arizona

Another reason to beware of April 15! Matt Ball, Vegan Outreach co-founder will be speaking on Saturday, April 15 at the Arizona State University's Memorial Union (MU on this map, section F-4), Navajo room (#219, second floor), from 2:00-4:30.

Those unable to make it are invited to read this interview with Earthsave Portland from several years ago, and A Meaningful Life, which grew out of a previous talk.

Product of the Week

Kandiss Powell: "I am just writing to let you know about a company that is really doing right by veganism. It is hands-down the best vegan ice cream in the world, and it's an all vegan-run company that uses local ingredients and is eco-friendly. They are called Chicago Soydairy and the ice cream is called Temptation. You can read about their philosophy and company here: welovesoy.com."

Notes from All Over

Vegetarian Diet Helps Keep Pounds Off

excerpt: "'Contrary to current popular views that a diet low in carbohydrates and high in protein keeps weight down, we found that the lowest weight gain came in people with high intake of carbohydrates and low intake of protein,' said Professor Tim Key."

 

Erik's Diner Closes

Vegan.com will continue on, though.

 

Notes from Our Members

[Your] leaflets are wonderful! I just got off the phone with a woman who called to tell me how they have changed her thinking...in one day. She received the Even If You Like Meat and Why Vegan? leaflets from me. She took them home and laid them on the table, trying not to look. Well, she ended up reading them and was a little mortified. She said "I ripped the leg off the half a chicken, took a bite, and saw the leaflets you gave me. I couldn't put the food down fast enough and I still have that awful taste in my mouth." She also shared the information with her daughter who is requesting more information about a vegan lifestyle.
     I have been everywhere with the leaflets, with great responses. My only complaint is that they are almost gone -- they are too easy to distribute.

I just wanted to tell you how great your pamphlets are. Every time someone asks me why I'm vegan I just pull out the Why Vegan? pamphlet and then they want to go and throw up!

I just wanted to let you know that your new Guide to Cruelty-Free Eating was a huge success at Meatout this year. At the end of the day they were almost gone. I think the crowd really liked the nutrition info and recipes. I really love all your booklets and think they are extremely effective! Keep up the good work!
-Heather Leughmyer, 3/29/06

Today, I handed out 600 EIYLMs at University of South Florida in 2 hours. I've never handed out that many in that short a period of time. One guy stopped me and said he had been thinking about going vegetarian and this was exactly what he needed. That felt good.
