Fall 2015: Kassy Ortega

Kassy Ortega, VO’s Washington, DC Outreach Coordinator, has personally handed booklets to 22,651 students at 25 different schools this semester!

Above are two students Kassy met this fall:

I handed Lydia [left] a booklet on campus. She handed it back and told me she was already vegetarian. I put a Guide to Cruelty-Free Eating in her hand and told her that there were vegan recipes inside. After a 15-minute conversation about the dairy and egg industries, she exclaimed, “I’m pretty sure you just made a new vegan today!”

Danielle [right] received a booklet from us last semester and has stopped eating animals!

Right now, you have the opportunity to spare twice as many animals from suffering: Have your donation doubled today!

  1. Hope I can ask something here. The VO T-shirts in your shop (black with a chicken), do they have a backprint and if so what is it? I’m asking since I want one but I know you earlier had a “we do it for the chicks” tagline on some shirts. I get the joke but I’d rather not have it on a shirt. So, is there anything printed on the back? Cheers

    1. Hi, Tom – Both the unisex and women’s v-neck VO T-shirts are printed on the front only. Thank you!

  2. I am an old guy (82+). I simply am writing to encourage all who believe in animal rights and veganism. Cheers! Keep up the GOOD work. And, may the earth someday be a place of peace.
