Your Donation = More Animals Saved!


It’s great to know that I can support Vegan Outreach – and in turn increase the number of people who hear our message – by making a financial contribution.
     Leafleting requires not only the energy to physically hand out booklets, but also needs financial backing. I’m glad I can participate!

In the early 1990s, we formed Vegan Outreach, dedicated to optimally effective advocacy per dollar donated and hour worked.

Reagan Kimball
At the University of Maryland, Reagan Kimball proves the mythical car handoff actually does exist!

A little last minute holiday outreach today; results were sparse but I was pleased. Those people may have otherwise not been exposed to this message in their lifetimes.

Ashley and I had a great day of outreach at Arizona State, Polytechnic campus. One student who grew up on a farm was thankful that we were out there. Another student came back and asked us to re-leaflet his booklet in hopes that it might also be effective on someone else. One student was writing a paper and thankful to have the extra info; another asked for extras to pass out during his presentation. One woman, maybe an admin or professor, said she had reduced meat consumption as a result of receiving the brochure in the past.

Very good outreach at Yakima Valley Community College. All the kids were very interested in what I was handing out. Saw a girl stop dead in her tracks and read the leaflet; she did not stop reading until a friend approached her to talk. Talked to a vegetarian about the dairy industry, battery cages, veal, etc. She wanted to go vegan after that. Veganism is becoming more and more mainstream every day!
—Phil Letten, 10/26/10

At Hunter College, a student asked me, “Can I have one of those pamphlets? My friend who is a vegan is always arguing with me about this, so I’m going to read it so we can finally talk about it.” Others mentioned getting leaflets previously and are now thinking of going veg. One student asked several questions about going vegetarian and said he would give it a try as soon as finals are over.

2010 Veggie Award
Many thanks to everyone who made Vegan Outreach VegNews’ Favorite Vegetarian Organization!

Soon after arriving at Ventura College, I met Courtney, who joined me to leaflet and is going to take over further outreach there! We had a number of very thoughtful conversations with her fellow students. When one said, “They’re gonna die anyway, so what does it matter?” I was stoked to hear two of his friends pounce on him with, “Well, you’re gonna die one day, you wanna be abused?”

Low 20s and very windy at the University of Maryland, but still good leafleting! I heard from numerous vegetarians and vegans.
—Jon Camp, 12/14/10

Chilly at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, but good conversations. One girl asked, “Why do you even hand those out? I can’t bear to look at them, they are so sad.” I explained that this issue is not going away unless we confront it. She agreed, took a Guide, and said, “Thank you. Your cause is great.” One woman said asking people to reduce their meat consumption was something they could handle. She really appreciated our approach. Someone biked by and yelled, “Yay vegan!”

A University of Alabama student is enlightened by Darina Smith! Below, another UA student studies the reality previously hidden by agribusiness.

It was a very cold day so I bundled up in many layers and snow pants to hit Purdue University, Calumet. I heard from quite a few students who had been thinking about going veg and were thankful for getting the information. One woman told me receiving a booklet on campus last year caused her to go vegetarian!
—Leslie Patterson, 12/1/10

Snow at Anne’s old stomping grounds, Carnegie Mellon, and we occasionally had to go inside to thaw. Despite this, Brian, Phil, and I reached 1,813 students – a new record there!
—Vic Sjodin, 12/3/10

Great day at the University of Colorado, Boulder. Matt, Rae, Adena, and I had loads of great conversations with people who were “on the fence,” knew others who were vegan and were considering the vegan path themselves, etc.
—Barbara Bear, 12/14/10

UA student

While leafleting a concert today, a number of folks told Nick and me they had previously received a booklet at Warped Tour. When it got quiet at the end, we talked with two of these people (separately) and guess what? Both went veg after getting the booklet! We’d randomly selected these people; I can’t begin to fathom how many kids have changed this year from our Warped Tour outreach.
—Brian Grupe, 10/27/10

At St. Petersburg College, one student came back after reading the booklet to tell me, “This information will definitely have an impact on my life.” She was almost in tears. Another student who got a booklet last semester also said it “made an impact” on his life. They both thanked me for being there.
     One girl said to her friend, “Don’t look at that leaflet; it’s awful.” The friend replied, “I want to look at it because I want to stop eating meat.”
     When I’m carrying those heavy boxes of booklets, I think of it as carrying an animal to safety. I know we’re changing things!
