Notes from Vegan Outreach

Thirteen Million…and YOU!


Yes, that’s right:

We recently distributed our 13,000,000th booklet!

Now here’s the important point:

Ashley Rhinehart
Ashley Rhinehart, along with John, Queenie, Jeff, and Nikki, reached over 2,800 students at Arizona State – a new record!
Double Your Donation!

This didn’t happen because of the government.
This didn’t happen because of a corporation.
This didn’t happen because of a million-dollar grant.

This happened because of YOU!

No company handed out these booklets.


No celebrity paid to have the booklets printed and shipped.


Countless lives changed forever
Countless animals spared a life of torture and slaughter

All because of YOU!

We simply can’t say it enough – you are the key. And you – yes, YOU! – should take pride in every single booklet that opens another heart, another mind – the real results every single day!

Please remember: How soon we, together, reach the next million, five million, thirteen million – again, this depends on you!

Please continue to be a part by doubling your contribution today! Thanks so much!


Notes from Our Members

Analeese Doehrty
Analeese Doehrty puts compassion on the curriculum at UC Irvine.

A great day at Niagara College, Welland! I saw many students reading the leaflets as they waited for their buses. One young lady read the whole leaflet and then said, “That’s it, I’m not eating meat again.” A few students told me how much they love steak, but once they opened a leaflet they had many questions for me and seemed genuinely concerned about the animals.
—John Sakars, 9/23/10

We reached 2,105 students at LaGuardia Community College! Cassandra was on fire! Great conversations with groups of students, heard from some saying they were going back to being veg again, met a professor who wants us to come present at his class sometime.
—Eileen Botti, 9/22/10

I had a great take rate at Wake Technical Community College. One student who got a booklet earlier told me after passing by again, “It made me sad.” She was happy to receive the Guide to help her change her diet in response. Another student said he used to be vegetarian when he was younger (for health reasons) and was interested in going back because he agreed that since we have the choice not to eat animals, we ought not to eat animals to spare them suffering and death. He got a Guide.
     One student who passed by again after taking a booklet earlier told me: “You must have got everyone here! Everyone in my last class was looking through them.”
—Brandon Becker, 9/13/10

Taylor Cook
Ten-hut! Taylor Cook makes ethical eating the order of the day at the University of Mississippi.

At SUNY Plattsburgh, one student said he did a project on CAFOs in a class, so he was excited to get a leaflet. A faculty member said he just finished reading the book Eating Animals. He said several of his colleagues are reading it, and they’re all making changes to their diets. He held up the leaflet and said, “This is very important information.” A student said she’s a former vegetarian because she didn’t feel well after a while being veg. Of course she got a Guide, and she seemed grateful.
—Lana Smithson, 9/22/10

Tons of positive feedback and conversations at the University of Montana both yesterday and today. Came across many vegans and vegetarians. Met a few who had been veg in the past but wanted to try it again. They got Guides. Met a few who were almost veg and wanted to go all the way. Had many conversations about how chickens have it the worst. So many stories for this school I can’t fit them all!
—Phil Letten, 9/14/10

It was great leafleting with Diana and Mark at Columbia College. A girl sitting nearby told me many of the students had received the booklet previously, and that many of them were already vegetarian or vegan. She then told me she had the booklet on her fridge for a year and had given up eating cows and pigs and thought she would become vegetarian eventually. I encouraged her and offered her a Guide, which she seemed happy to receive.
—Leslie Patterson, 9/22/10

Duke and the rest of the Vegas Veg crew make sure UNLV students hear the animals’ message.

We reached 300 students in just 40 minutes at Cosumnes River College. I met four vegetarians and one gal who had gone vegan after getting a booklet last year but had fallen off the wagon. I congratulated all of them and they all seemed excited to receive Guides. My stepdad met two vegetarians and one person interested in what to eat; all took Guides.
—Brian Grupe, 9/26/10

I handed out some of your booklets at a green business expo. I was not sure how people would react, but everyone I gave one to seemed receptive – even the ones standing in line to buy meat for lunch. I think that your literature is received well by all types of people.
     Your booklets are informative and logical, and do not get recipients in a defensive mode; thus they are willing to give the information a chance.

Ann, Julie, Laura, Ellen, Georg, Marie, and I reached 2,200 students during day two at the University of Texas, Arlington – we ran out of booklets! What a great week it has been on my mini-tour – many, many schools and many thousands of new students reached!
—Casey Constable, 9/23/10

Joe Espinosa
Spreading compassion is a numbers game, with Joe Espinosa reaching out to more students at Illinois State.

Good reception at Ball State. Right away, a student came up to tell me that getting a booklet from me last semester had moved her to become vegetarian. She had not gotten a Guide, so I supplied her with one. Heard from five other vegetarians and two vegans.
—Joe Espinosa, 9/24/10

At Naugatuck Valley Community College, Aleta and I heard two students say, “Oh my God, this is just like the puppy mills!” I met a guy who said he loves animals, and we had a real good talk about the treatment of animals in factory farms. He read the booklet and said he would cut back. I also met a girl who is interested in getting veg options into the cafeteria. We will assist her.
—Karen James, 9/22/10

Twelve hours of sweet outreach today. Brian, Dana, and I reached 2,250 students at Ocean Community College, Stockton College, Monmouth College, and Middlesex Community College. Saw tons of students reading the lit. Not bad for a rainy day!
—Vic Sjodin, 9/27/10
