Notes from Vegan Outreach

Urgent: Please Help Us Meet the Demand for Our Booklets!

The cruelty inflicted on animals every hour of every day is beyond words. Every time a new investigation is released, it reinforces our unwavering commitment to exposing and ending the brutality of every factory farm.

Every week, new people are joining the campaign: taking the animals' case directly to the public -- one booklet, one person at a time.

Indeed, our campaign has been growing so quickly that we've sent out more than 600,000 booklets in the past month alone!

However, continuing to provide activists with this many booklets is far beyond Vegan Outreach's current budget. We're now scrambling to come up with the funds to print and ship enough booklets to keep pace with demand.

Please make a special donation today. Your dollars will print more booklets, create more vegetarians, and hasten the day when pigs, chickens, cows and turkeys no longer suffer unseen.

Please make a secure donation on-line via this page, or send a check or money order to:

Thank you!

Notes from Our Members

It is great to see such impressive numbers, and with such a small staff. It also shows how effective your "non-profit business model" is -- staying focused on what you do, and not getting distracted into other areas and campaigns. Also, the idea of linking up experienced and non-experienced people sounds like a great way to give people confidence and to expand.

Today at U Mass - Lowell was all about community. I got to leaflet with two great students that I met on campus while leafleting: Kaylee and Dave. It was great to be around such positive people, and the students were receptive and friendly. One young woman stopped to ask what the brochure was. I briefly explained factory farming and she looked as if she was going to break down and cry. Her friends dragged her away telling me, "Thanks, now we're never going to hear the end of this!" I hope they don't.

I was joined today by two other talented activists, Jane and Ann. Two students approached and asked for leaflets; one of them then said, "Wow I can't eat lunch now! I don't know if I can ever eat meat again." After receiving Guides, they asked what it's like to be vegan. Later, a student who received a leaflet from Ann approached me for another leaflet because her environmental science teacher took it away from her; he talked to the class about factory farming and was planning on using the leaflet to design a project about factory farming for the entire class. Hooray for the power of one leaflet!

Had a little break in my afternoon, so I grabbed my little stash of Even If You Like Meat booklets and made the most of the time at Loyola. The booklets were flying like (vegan) hotcakes into mostly appreciative hands. I've decided I'm going to stick to college campuses until school lets out again -- it is so efficient and rewarding.
-Pam Blair, 9/20/08

At Cal State, Los Angeles, the numbers of students both sitting and walking reading the leaflet were staggering. One girl said, "I got this leaflet before and I'm totally converted." Two other students said they are now vegetarian because of our leaflets. I met several vegans who high-fived me and offered their words of encouragement.
-Stewart Solomon, 9/19/08

After one student at Columbia Heights High School took a booklet, I heard her tell her friend, "This is probably going to make me go vegetarian."
-Fred Tyler, 9/21/08

I'm very tired of animal rights organizations that pose as nutritional authorities when they are not and that dispense one-sided, deceptive information about vegan diets. They may feel that the ends justify the means, but I feel that an ethical philosophy of life should apply to all of one's fellow beings, human and non-human alike. I could see that Vegan Outreach was an exception. The information presented on your web site was objective and evenhanded, and, of course, I agreed with it. So keep up the good work.
-JL, 9/15/08

I have realized after attending AR2008 that it's not enough to just be vegan -- I have to become part of the movement and do outreach.
-KP, 9/22/08

After being hassled by the cops at Utah Valley State, I found the professor who runs the campus veggie club. She then took me to an ethics seminar, where I passed out 250 flyers. A good day!
-Eric Paul, 9/16/08

At Montgomery College, I saw individuals reading their Even If You Like Meat booklets intently; a few came up to state how important this work is. One man took a booklet, sat down, spent about 15 minutes reading it, then returned. He said that he used to be vegan, but as a result of reading Even If, will now return to being vegan.
