Notes from Vegan Outreach

Together, We Will Make a Real Difference!

Every day, more people join the Vegan Outreach community, because they believe in our mission: To make everyone and anyone, in any situation, the most effective advocate for the animals possible.

You can follow the work of activists everywhere via the Adopt a College website. These dedicated individuals have already directly reached over 2.5 million students -- over a quarter million this semester alone!

Every day, these booklets change lives, inspiring people to stop eating animals and embrace compassion. This is only possibly because of donors who realize that to make a real difference for the animals, we must create a base of more vegetarians and vegans.

Your dollars print more booklets,
and booklets save animals!

We'd like to give a huge thank you to everyone who made a special donation in response to last week's enewsletter. We're still trying to raise enough money to print more booklets, and will do our absolute best to make your contribution go as far as possible for the animals.

If you can, please make a special donation on-line via this page, or send a check or money order to:

Together, we will make a real difference!

Notes from Our Members

The College of Staten Island had only been leafleted once before, but it left a significant impression: students recalled receiving leaflets, some of them had more questions and were thinking of going veg as a result of the leaflets. One student stopped to say, "This is so awesome that you're doing this -- I will show it [the leaflet] to my class. Thanks for coming to our campus!"

Yesterday, I heard "I'm a meatitarian" from a woman and her husband. I replied with, "So you need this pamphlet to cure you." The husband responded by taking the pamphlet. As he opened it up and started looking through it, his jaw dropped to the ground, and I overheard him telling his wife that he wanted to read the booklet. Today a boy told me that he received the pamphlet earlier in the day, and that he has now decided to go vegetarian. In a separate incident, a family told me that they got the pamphlet yesterday and that that they have now "started the diet."

At East Los Angeles College today, one fellow came back to ask for extras, telling me he had been reading the leaflet and crying in his car. Another man said, "This really works, you know. My brother became vegetarian after reading one of these."
-Brianne Donaldson, 9/23/08

I've had a lot of really great feedback on my trip through Wisconsin -- people asking for more information, stopping to help me leaflet, etc. Today, one guy I had given a flier to earlier in the day passed by again and said, "I don't think I'm ever eating meat again. There are some disturbing facts in there." Earlier, one girl who got a flier from me said she didn't want to eat meat anymore. One guy read the flier and when he passed by again he said, "I'm going to try and reduce my consumption of meat." Several said they had gotten one before and that it was "interesting" or "good stuff." One girl said she got the flier last time, went to the website, and now she has banners from VO on her Myspace page.

At the University of Massachusetts, Boston, Alene and I gave an Even If You Like Meat to a police officer who stopped dead in his tracks and started talking about how unbelievable what he saw was. He and I talked about how animals are treated as commodities instead of individuals in the modern world, and he told me he was disgusted with humanity that we have sunk so low. I gave him (and a gentleman listening in on our conversation) a Guide, and they were both very appreciative.
-Brian Grupe, 9/25/08

At the University of Toronto, one lady said she'd received the same leaflet at the same school three years ago, and she has been a vegetarian ever since. Two different students asked how they could get involved with VO. I told them about the Adopt a College program, and how to order leaflets. They seemed excited, so I gave them each 20 Even Ifs, so they could get started leafleting right away. Three different students asked for leaflets for school projects they were doing.
