Notes from Vegan Outreach

You & Team Vegan: the Payoff

If you only read one sentence of this enewsletter:

In just a few days, we’re printing 700,000 copies of Compassionate Choices and Even If You Like Meat – the most we’ve ever printed!

Yvonne LeGrice
No break for summer! Team Vegan member Yvonne LeGrice informs another Warped Tour attendee.

This is because of the stunning efforts of everyone involved with Team Vegan, who raised an incredible $105,000+ (doubled to $210,000+) to print and distribute more Vegan Outreach booklets!

Because of all of you who have dedicated yourselves to striking at the root, VO activists across the continent will be heading into fall semester in a position to provide the animals the most effective voice ever!

It’s been an honor to work with the Team, who spent two months beating the bushes to raise money from friends, family, coworkers, etc. Special thanks to John, Fany, Steve, Steve, and Anonymous, whose matching challenge and double doubling helped increase everyone’s impact! And to our top fundraisers: Yvonne, Darina, the QTs, Todd, Brian, Catherine, and Nettie!

We’re deeply and truly thankful that you believe in VO’s work and use your contributions to help others have a bigger impact!

If we are to bring about the new world we all want, where animals aren’t viewed as mere commodities but rather are treated with the respect they are due, it will obviously require that people no longer view animals as food. This fundamental change can’t take place from the top down; it has to occur from the bottom up.

Together, we are making this happen, every day.

Thank you!!

The Ultimate Beefless Burger

Product of the Week

VO HQ: “Gardein’s Ultimate Beefless Burger has replaced Boca’s burger as our favorite here (although we still eat plenty of the latter – the jumbo ones from Costco are very cheap!). Our local grocery store (Bashas) carries it, along with other Gardein. According to VegNews, the Ultimate Beefless Burger is even great grilled.”

Please submit your nominees for product of the week via this page; previous entries here.

 

Notes from Our Members

Stewart Solomon
School’s out, leafleting’s in! Teacher and Super Dad Stewart Solomon gets the Warped Tour rolling.

Good help and good conversations lately. At Concordia College, one woman said, “I got one of those booklets in October, and now I’m a vegetarian.” She was excited to get a Guide. At North Dakota State University, one man said, “I had a summer job in a turkey plant. It was so sickening, I just walked off the job. I didn’t even collect my paycheck.”

Aaron & Kate (aka The Humane League) and I reached 3,600 students at George Mason today – a huge new record! Combining last night’s outreach with today’s, we reached over 5,000 folks in the last 24 hours.
—Jon Camp, 5/2/11

Great vegan bake sale at Towson University; reached 500 students with booklets. One student said, “I went vegan from reading this last semester!”
—Kate St. John, 5/3/11

Tabling at Boulder’s Puttin’ on the Leash Humane Society gala was great! We doled out vegan sesame chickun from a local restaurant, along with various flavors of Purely Decadent nice cream. People were wowed by both, but they really couldn’t believe how good the vegan chickun was. Some people had trouble believing it wasn’t chickens’ flesh. Confirmed animal eaters started talking about veganism! Three people told us they’d gone veg or vegan because of our outreach at past Humane Society events, and many vegetarians came to the table to thank us for being there. Many great conversations; e.g., a man who rescues animals as a volunteer with United Animal Nations said we got him questioning why he rescues some animals and eats others. Hopefully being in the presence of vegan literature, posters, and smiling vegans all night helped him further along the path.
—Barbara Bear, 4/23/11

I had a lot of positive reactions, and only one or two negative, while leafleting Taste of Chicago. One young lady said she went vegetarian after getting a booklet last year.

Gavilan College was great! I met quite a few ex-vegetarians who seemed open to going back. I met a vegan getting something to drink from their snack bar and we exchanged high fives. The cashier wanted to check out a leaflet after all our vegan shenanigans had passed.
     I approached three young ladies standing on an area of grass and they happily accepted leaflets. I strolled around another building where I was able to see them again. They had totally stopped talking and were each standing quietly reading their leaflets. It was a sight to behold!
