Vegan Outreach Needs Your Help!

I was out of town for two weeks, had a lot of Vegan Outreach (VO) work to catch up on, and hope to get back to nutrition blogging soon.

In the meantime, VO is running a matching donation drive — we are trying to match $102,000. We started November 1 and are still just over halfway to our goal.

Every day, in all kinds of weather, VO leafleters are handing out our hard-hitting booklets to thousands of college students. In 2011, we handed booklets to over 1.5 million students at about 1,000 schools!

These efforts are creating a generation of young people who oppose factory farming and view animals as deserving respect. And we are starting to see this reflected in polls and rates of meat consumption.

Please become part of this change by donating to VO’s end of year fundraising drive! We cannot let up the momentum now.

And if that’s not enough reason, remember that VO provides the financial support for VeganHealth.org. Without VO, what organization would be willing to present all the scientific research on veg diets? Who would take the time to provide free advice to people who are having questions or problems?

Please donate now by clicking here, and your donation will be doubled.

Thank you very much for being a part of this change!

    Great post, Jack! I’m asking friends and family members to donate to VO this holiday season in lieu of a physical present.

    “in all kinds of weather” – I don’t know, all the photos from the VO emails always show sunny pictures..

    Just kidding, keep up the good work! I just made a donation for all the good work you do.

    Ps. The input fields of this website comment form seem to be white against a white background (no borders), so a bit tricky to find the right place to enter details. The textarea shows OK with a grey border.

    Karl,

    Thank you so much for donating! Yes, we have a tendency to take pictures only in good weather – probably because it’s easier to take them. But most days in most parts the country, the weather is challenging.

    I noticed the comment form problems when I updated the captcha plug-in, but have had a hard time locating where the code exists in order to change it. I finally succeeded at adding a border to everything.
