Notes from Vegan Outreach

Support Our Man Up North!

How would you like to be in Nebraska in November? Or Minnesota in March?

How ’bout leafleting the schools in those states, and the Dakotas, and Iowa, and Wisconsin, etc., in freezing winds, under sleety skies?

Fred Tyler

That’s what Fred Tyler does.

Fred has reached nearly 86,000 individuals with VO’s detailed booklets. We have a new profile of him, in which he explains why he leaflets:

“I got a Why Vegan? pamphlet in the summer of 1996. At that point, I had never heard about factory farming, or thought about where my food was coming from. After reading the Why Vegan?, I knew I had to change. I didn’t want to support such an abusive industry. Over the course of the next month, I kept eliminating animal products from my diet until I was confident in calling myself vegan.

“I knew firsthand that the leaflets were effective, and I wanted other people to learn the truth. When VO started the Adopt a College program, I joined in as my schedule allowed. I saw that it was a great demographic and people were generally receptive. When I was presented with an opportunity to do more of this important work, I jumped on it.”

You can read his full profile, as well as other activist profiles.

Fred has just joined Team Vegan, so you can show your support by contributing to his work via his page!

And, as we mentioned last week, you can receive one of Dr. Greger’s new videos if you contribute $75 or more to the expanded matching challenge!

So please – double your dollars and show your support of Fred’s incredible dedication!
Thank you!

Aaron Ross
Aaron Ross of AAP reaches out to another Virginia Tech student.

I got your booklet and I will never eat meat, eggs, or dairy again! I gave it to a friend, and she is giving up meat.

Great day at Fresno State lots of positive interactions. A young lady walked by me with her friend reading an Even If You Like Meat. I thanked her for taking the time to read it and she said she hasn’t been able to put it down and had been literally sick to her stomach since opening it up. Got a high five and a few thank you’s and good for you’s today, which is always nice.
     A number of people here (and elsewhere recently) mentioned doing a report or presentation on the subject of farmed animal cruelty. My interactions with them have been great, and nearly all accepted Guides.
—Brian Grupe, 5/7/10

Freezing day, but students were very receptive at the New York City College of Technology. Many students doubled back to get leaflets after seeing others take them, and a bunch asked for extras to give to friends. Some said they read it after getting it from another student, and I heard many say to their friends, “Take that, you have to read it.” One student stopped to say, “You gave me that last year and I stopped eating meat for a month, but then I lost motivation. Now I’m going to go vegetarian again.” She was grateful to receive a Guide.

Marguerite Campbell
Marguerite Campbell invites a Fordham University student to consider compassionate choices.

I’ve never seen so many middle school, high school, and college-age students at the Art Walk before. It was Nicky’s first time leafleting, and he did great, with lots of long, productive conversations. We met a few people interested in vegetarianism, a few former vegetarians that seemed interested in going back, and met two kids who went vegetarian after recently receiving a booklet.
Jeff Boghosian, 5/7/10

One girl at William Paterson today said she had been wanting to go veg, so she got a Guide. Another two girls who are roommates said they would go veg for a week, so they got a Guide and encouragement.
—Vic Sjodin, 5/7/10

I probably subscribe to hundreds of newsletters from nonprofits (mostly animal related), but I keep looking forward to reading yours! I’ve already read many of the articles you link to, but I love reading your articles about why you do what you do and your vision for the future. I look at the world in a similarly calm, pragmatic way, and that is why this is my favorite organization. I’ve decided that I’m going to get over my meaningless fear of leafleting and start doing it regularly next semester.
     I also wanted to let you know that I use your principles (coming off as happy and kind, and not talking about purity) in my everyday life, and both of my parents have cut down significantly on their animal-product intake, and my younger sister is vegetarian and only drinks soymilk. My boyfriend hates factory farming and wants to go vegetarian eventually.
