Notes from Vegan Outreach

A Record Day!

On April 23, 2007, Compassionate Action for Animals sponsored a historic, first-ever Minnesota College Leafleting Day! They coordinated over 55 volunteers in Minnesota, some in remote cities around the state and many who had never leafleted before. On this beautiful, sunny day, they leafleted at every major college in the Twin Cities area and many others throughout the state (see full post here), distributing over 9,500 Vegan Outreach leaflets!

Other Vegan Outreach activists distributed over 6,600 booklets that day at other schools and venues across the continent, bringing the total for the day to over 16,000 booklets handed directly to individuals. For reference, the total for the entire first semester of the Adopt a College program (Fall 2003) was 22,217 booklets.

Product of the Week

In response to the previous mention of the Vita-mix, Shirley nominates the Health Master 100 as a less expensive option: It does just as good for a fraction of the cost. We start the day with our own version of V-8 -- tomatoes, celery, bell pepper, spinach, collards, cabbage, carrots, flax seed.

Send your nominees for Product of the Week to info (at) veganoutreach (dot) org; previous products can be found here.

A Carnivore's Take on Veganism

Excerpt: "She recommends the hazelnut-crusted seitan, a crunchy, fried wheat gluten so reminiscent of meat that I inhale the entire entrée in under five minutes. After a convincing vegan brownie sundae and a curt lecture by the waitress on why dairy 'doesn’t do anything for you,' I head home, comforted by the fact that I don’t have to recite poetry, grow dreadlocks or eat out of upside-down bongos to be a vegan. Being a vegan might not be that bad after all. ... Eating among converts is one thing, but interacting with the nonvegan world is by far the toughest part of the experiment."

 

Feedback from Our Members

Veganism is the best thing that ever happened to me. I'm so thankful to Vegan Outreach because I was given a pamphlet of yours and it led me to your website. I am now vegan and I never want to change!

I decided to do my persuasion speech [for speech class] on why not to eat meat. I gave everyone in class, including my teacher, copies of Why Vegan, Even If You Like Meat, and the Guide to Cruelty-Free Eating. And the speech was a big success; I had a few people in my class stop me afterwards to let me know that my speech left the biggest impact on them, and to ask for more information about where to shop for vegetarian foods. One woman in my class recently told me that she hasn't eaten any meat since the day I did my speech a few weeks ago, and has lost over 12 pounds since giving up meat!
     And I just want to say that the Vegan Outreach pamphlets were so incredibly helpful; it was so rewarding to look around the class after I finished my speech, and see everyone reading them. I know that those are 30 people who will be more compassionate to animals from this point on!
