Adopt A College

Tuesday, September 28th, 2004

Hi folks

Now that school is back in session, I’m back to leafleting monthly with Vegan Outreach’s Adopt-a-College campaign. While leafleting is not one of my better skills, I really believe in the effectiveness of Vegan Outreach’s campaign to reach college students. I am totally committed to the belief and practice that getting people to reduce or omit animals from their diet is the most effective way to reduce animal cruelty and suffering. So I pledged to participate in the Adopt a College campaign monthly, for 30 minutes, during my lunch break. I know this is not a lot, but I believe it is better than doing nothing, and it is something that I can commit to doing.

Here’s more info about how well their program works:

SO, I’ll be in SF this Thursday at the Academy of Arts Campus in SF, on New Montgomery near Howard at 11:30 to catch folks travelling between classes. As I do this on my lunch hour, I’ll be there for about 30 minutes.

This activity is worth 1000 points in the Advocacy Rewards Program (which offers vegan meals, massages, merchandise, etc)

Please let me know if you’ll be joining me so I can plan how much literature to bring OR if you’ll be bringing your own Why Vegans (much appreciated, much less for me to carry in via the bus).

This is a monthly activity; date usually varies depending on my work schedule. I will be leafleting on a Wedn next time (I like to vary the day of week). If you have date preferences for future activities, please let me know.

If you would like to Adopt a College of your own, please contact Vegan Outreach (see link above) or email me if you need help. If anyone else is participating locally in the Adopt a College campaign, please also share your leafleting dates and add your event to the BAV event calendar.
