BAV members raise $4560 for VIVA!

Sunday, December 21st, 2003

We would like to thank folks who joined us in supporting Viva!! It was so wonderful to see our community pull together to support them. We would like to give a special thanks to Nicole & Regina, as well as another special friend, for helping us create the $2,000 matching fund.

With help from many other kind and thoughtful supporters, we have matched $2000 in community donations, and raised as of today a total of $4,560 for Viva! This has exceeded our expectations and we are happy to be part of this community of caring and compassionate folks.

Please see lauren’s personal thank you below; this went out in this week’s VIVA! Newsletter.

Bay Area Vegetarians will continue to support and work with Viva! and other local groups promoting vegetarianism and animal rights. If you’re interested in brainstorming or getting more involved with these efforts, we’d love to hear from you.

Thanks again,
Tammy & Chris

From lauren @ Viva!

“Viva!USA would like to give a heartfelt thanks to Bay Area Vegetarians (www.BayAreaVeg.org) who, after hearing the news of Viva!USA’s need for additional financial assistance, stepped up and raised over $4,000 to allow us to continue our efforts for the animals.

The support of activists around the bay area will allow Viva!USA to breathe a bit easier coming into the New Year. It shows us that others value our investigations, materials, and campaigns and this means a great deal to us.

Thanks again to Chris, Tammy and everyone with Bay Area Veg who showed that community support can make such a difference! ”
