During leafleting at the 2008 Maker Faire in San Mateo., 749 people and one astromech received information about delicious vegan recipes, plant-based nutrition, and the revealing truth of the modern day animal factory farms.
Hundreds more stopped by our booth to say hello, ask questions about vegan protein sources, egg and dairy substitutes, get vegan recipes, learn the truth about “humane” meat, eggs & dairy, and simply learn more about a compassionate and cruelty-free lifestyle.
And then there were those who looked from a distance at our model of battery caged hens, read our sign about WHY VEGAN, but didn’t approach. As one blogger frankly posted in a reference to Bay Area Vegetarians “various ‘activist’ vendors pushing everything from a vegan lifestyle (been avoiding that booth)”.
Thank you to our star volunteers who staffed the info table during this two day event, Julie, Dyanna, Rennie, Drew, Jeff, and Ravi, to Tammy for organizing & leafleting, & to Rennie for bringing the delicious chocolate pie (vegan, of course).
And a big welcome to our newest members from the Maker Faire 2008 San Mateo!
