Thought the heatwaves across the country were caused by global warming?
Vegan Outreach activists have been burning it up this summer, seeking out concerts, festivals, walk-a-thons, and any other location where they can find interested people.
As of August 28, activists have reached 530,105 individuals at these various summer venues.
That's right, over half-a-million new people!
Warped Tour leafleting has also set amazing new records. Initial numbers from our leafleters put WT outreach at 331,882 – nearly as many as 2010's summer overall total (360,577).
|Last week at the College of Alameda, Brian met Caitlin, |
who has been vegan since getting a VO booklet at Warped 2010.
Congratulations to the amazing activists who have been on fire for the animals!
A sample from the latest batch of Guide requests:
I was at Warped and someone happened to be handing out brochures. It was pure luck that I put it in my bag. When I got home, I read it, and now I am really looking forward to this!

I was walking out of Warped and I was handed a booklet. I always thought it would be interesting to try being a vegan and after doing some research, now's the time.

Someone gave me a booklet outside of a concert. Thank you for making me aware about what's going on.
