Notes from Vegan Outreach

  Brian Grupe reports from Humboldt State: “Met Lauren, who went veg after getting an EIYLM from me at Canada College in the Bay Area, over 300 miles south. We were overjoyed to meet each other; it was a great moment. She says she tells everyone about the leaflet.”

Team Vegan Powers Ahead

As you can see, the amazing members of Team Vegan have already raised nearly half of the $85,000 matching challenge!

This week, we’d like to highlight some of Team Vegan’s top volunteer leafleters:

Joe Espinosa, Leslie Patterson, John Oberg, Yvonne LeGrice, Brandon Becker, Linda Bower, Eric Griffith, Lisa Hines, Tamara Hubbard, Karen James, John Sakars, Sean Scherer, Nettie Schwager, Elaine Vigneault.

If you’d like more people to learn the truth behind meat, eggs, and dairy, and start taking action for the animals, you can make a tax-deductible contribution to any of these members (or the people in the feedback section below, or via the Team Vegan general donations page).

And your donation will be matched, dollar for dollar!

So please, click over to, support a team member, and help take the animals’ message to more people!

Thanks so much!

Notes from Our Members

SU student
John Oberg snapped this picture of a Syracuse University student engrossed in learning the truth.

Holly Grupe joined Julie, Steve, and me at Cal State Fullerton, and we reached 3,600 students. Great reception and many vegetarians and vegans.
—Team Vegan member Nikki Benoit, 3/12/12

Anita and Ray joined me for a great day at the University of Nevada, Reno. They did great, and we had good conversations. Within the first hour of leafleting we met a (very excited) woman who has been veg ever since getting the booklet in the fall. She said her boyfriend has decreased his meat consumption by 50% too. Awesome!
—Team Vegan member Brian Grupe, 3/12/12

A great day with really friendly students at the University of New Orleans. Two people said they were greatly affected by the brochure and had salads for lunch. Another student was really thankful to see me out there and he asked about veganism. Another student was head of the pre-vet club and took an extra 10 booklets to distribute to her group.
—Team Vegan member Jeff Boghosian, 3/13/12

I used my day off to hit Richard J. Daley College and the University of Chicago; reached over 1,000 students. One woman said, “Guess it’s a sign that I need to change some things.” She was interested in vegetarianism and was happy to receive a Guide and encouragement.
—Team Vegan member Leslie Patterson, 3/14/12

Brian Grupe
The man who stares at goats (well, sheep): Brian Grupe!

A nice day to leaflet UNC Charlotte, where I reached 1,000 students. One student thanked me for being on campus – told me he read the booklet last year and went vegan. Another student said, “Respect, dawg, this is the truth.”
—Rob, of Team Triangle, 3/12/12

Massive day of leafleting at the University of Maryland, where Parker, John, and I (joined briefly by a passing student) reached over 4,000 students. John nearly broke the all-time record for the school all by himself!
     We had so many people stopping by to say that they’re veg, vegan, or interested. One muscular dude said he’s been cutting back on meat. He specifically walked my way to thank me for doing this work. He (and over four dozen others) got a Guide. One woman said she’d be eating less meat because of the booklet. Another woman bought John a vegan cookie.
—Team Vegan member Jon Camp, 3/13/12

At SUNY Cobleskill, Jon Camp met Shorna, who’s been almost completely vegetarian since Vic Sjodin handed her a booklet on campus last September.

Good leafleting at Oregon State – students were receptive and interested. I was thanked for being there, received supportive comments, and had productive conversations. Also gave a booklet to the daughter of a long-time friend – the family is deeply attached to eating animals, but the daughter might be open to the message.
—Team Vegan member Nettie Schwager, 3/8/12

Victoria and I nearly doubled the previous record for Louisiana Tech – 1,342 more students reached! Watched many students reading their booklets. Met six vegetarians in the first class change alone – a huge change here.
—Team Vegan member Vic Sjodin, 3/13/12

I met many interested students at Essex County College, and I got in touch with the AR club because of our time there. Also met a guy from the newspaper who is going to feature us and has invited us for an event.
—Team Vegan member Katie Pryor, 3/14/12

Good day at the University of Connecticut, where Anouk, Stephanie, Kathryn and I reached 1,226 students. Many amazing conversations! A student stopped to tell me that she went vegan two years ago after I gave her an Even If You Like Meat.
—Team Vegan member Karen James, 3/19/12
