Notes from Vegan Outreach

Jon Camp

The Six-Hundred-Thousand-Booklet Man!

Steve Austin has nothing on Vegan Outreach’s all-time leading leafleter, Jon “The Animal” Camp!

Jon has handed a VO booklet directly to more than 600,000 people!


At Vegan Outreach’s blog, the tag line is: “Care more about results than words?”

Jon is the very embodiment of this ideal!

You can learn more via Jon’s profile from last year.

If you’d like to honor this amazing accomplishment, please visit Jon’s Team Vegan page.

Reached 300 people at the Missouri City 4th of July fireworks. Right after I gave out my very first Why Vegan? for the evening, the person said that this pamphlet is the reason she is now a vegetarian.
—Eugene Khutoryansky, 7/4/10

Solano Community College really blew me away – so many positive interactions. One example: I ran into a guy I had spoken with on my last visit. Since then, he had really changed his diet. It was a moment of true zen for me to see such results and positive energy right before me.
     I also set a new record at Napa Valley College today.
     Leafleting the 30 Seconds to Mars concert earlier, I met a woman who has been veg for two years since getting one of our booklets at a Nine Inch Nails concert; she was grateful for a Guide.

Good reception at Governors State University. One professor even asked me to give her 30 to hand out to her ethics class!

I wasn’t in a leafleting mood today, but once I got to the farmers’ market and started in, I had a great time. Met about 15 vegans and a lot of vegetarians as well. A number of people thanked me for being there. One woman asked for an extra Compassionate Choices for her sister, another asked for one to send to a friend in Florida, and a man asked for four extras for a teacher who had recently shown her class Food, Inc.

Around 700–800 people came to this year’s New Orleans Veggie Fest, despite torrential rain in the morning and flooding (above). People took at least 1,000 VO booklets, and we sold a number of Animal Activist's Handbooks. It was really great finally meeting Jack Norris, and leafleting in the rain the day before the Fest with Jack, Jane Velez-Mitchell, and fellow VO leafleter John Sakars (who took the picture of us, below).

Twila, Jane, and Jack

Mostly teenage girls at the concert today. If one girl took a pamphlet, her friends suddenly wanted copies, too. I heard many comments like “Let me see that” and “Ohh, look at the pig!” Favorite moment:
     Me: “Info on helping animals?”
     Mom takes booklet and immediately hands it to her teenage daughter.
     Girl: Looks at the cover and exclaims, “I want to help animals!”
—Julie Rothman, 5/22/10

Well over 1,000 today at Ohio University, where I heard from well over 20 vegetarians and four vegans. One of the last booklets offered was to a trio of students, one of whom remarked to her friends that they should take the booklet as it was what moved her to become vegetarian last year. Her friends did take booklets.
