Notes from Vegan Outreach

Last Days – Don't be Left Behind!

Thanks to the generosity of our members, Vegan Outreach has raised $13,613.89 towards April's $20,000 matching donation challenge.

You can help Vegan Outreach receive more of this challenge and put it towards printing and distributing more booklets. These booklets have been changing lives every day on college campuses, preventing misery for just pennies an animal. In fact, the USDA has forecasted (see below) that poultry meat production will decline in 2007 for the first time since 1973!

All one-time donations marked "Matching" will be doubled. The initial amount of a new quarterly recurring donation will be tripled (i.e. a new $50 quarterly donation will be matched with $100), and the initial amount of a new monthly recurring donation will be quadrupled.

    You can donate securely on-line, including setting up recurring donations.

Checks may be mailed to:

    Vegan Outreach
    P.O. Box 38492
    Pittsburgh, PA 15238-8492

All donations must be marked "Matching" and dated in April to qualify. Thanks!

Where Your Donations Go

Overall distribution for 2007 has already passed half-a-million booklets, with more than 275,000 handed out directly to individuals on college campuses. (At this time last year, Adopt a College had barely passed 150,000).

Thanks so much to everyone who is out there, every day, reaching new people. You can see the full list for the term here.

Product of the Week

Todd: Amy's Rice Crust Spinach Pizza is "hands-down" the best frozen vegan pizza available! I like to add LightLife's Smart Deli Pepperoni Slices to mine for a little extra boost.

King of Queens on Why Vegan and the Vegan Stereotype

Feedback from Our Members

While leafleting at the International Festival today, a teenager told me that she got the pamphlet earlier in the day, and that she is now definitely going to go vegetarian. I replied, "In that case, you will also need one of these", and handed her a GCFE. Her friend then said that she needed a GCFE too. This scenario repeated a number of times today.

I have now been vegan for one year, thanks to you. Turning vegan really surprised my family. But with your starter guide and other info, it made the transition easier. So now I am 20 pounds lighter, healthier and celebrating ALL life to the fullest!

At American U today, a professor I spoke with last time I was there told me that he uses the Even If booklet in his classes on a regular basis. That's the second day in a row in which a professor mentioned using EI in his or her class.
