Earlier this month, Lana and first-time leafleter Andy Charles reached hundreds of students at the University of Southern Maine:

The weather in Maine has been icy and awful lately, and today there was steady cold rain, so we stayed indoors next to an enclosed walkway. Andy was a natural at leafleting. He has a great sense of humor and did some joking with students, which made for a fun atmosphere. He’s excellent at engaging in conversations. One student told him that he’s been thinking for a while about going veg but just hasn’t done it yet. Andy was very encouraging and told him a bit about his experience on the path of going vegan. The student thanked him and was motivated to give it a try!
