Bethany and Alexandra at Leeds

On September 28, Vic and Kimberly teamed with Alexandra Meeks (above, right), Sally Thompson, Jane Land, Dara Wetton, and Bethany Mills (above, left), reaching 4,000 students at Leeds Beckett University and the University of Leeds in England:

Today was the biggest leafleting day so far in UK history. Lots of readers, conversations started, and people coming back for more literature and/or questions.

My three favorite interactions were with Bethany, who was vegan and jumped right in and helped leaflet for over an hour, and wants to get more involved and loved leafleting. We had a long talk with Gabriel [below, right], who is committed to going vegan after reading the booklet in class; we gave him lots of information and encouragement. We also met Tara [below, left], who said she doesn’t think she can ever eat meat again after reading the booklet. We spoke for over 15 minutes, and she thanked us for the booklets and asked for more to show her friends.

Outreach in the UK is going phenomenal so far!! So happy because of VO supporters we can expand this lifesaving and effective work across the pond!
