Huge Opportunity! You and Team Vegan 2012!!

Vegan Outreach is preparing for the 10th year of Adopt a College: our tenth year of Vegan Outreach to the people who can change, will change, and — as the feedback we receive every day shows — have changed!

AAC activists have already handed our well-research, detailed, and compelling booklets to over ten and a half million young people — 7+ million on college campuses and at high schools. That's a lot of students! Overall distribution recently passed 17,500,000!

But together, we can do more — much, much more! We can reach that tipping point where it's just as easy to choose veg as to eat meat!

As you know, we've got the best team of activists and volunteers on the planet. If you give them booklets, they will enthusiastically deliver — in every state and in all kinds of weather.

This is where you come in!

Team Vegan 2012!

That's right, you can be a part of Team Vegan 2012, and help reach more people with these efficient and effective booklets!

Registration for Team Vegan 2012 is now open! Check it out here:

What is Team Vegan?

Team Vegan is a fundraiser for Vegan Outreach. If you'd like to help raise money to support Vegan Outreach's Adopt a College program, you can join the team. Every dollar you raise will help our activists and volunteers reach more students with Vegan Outreach’s booklets.

Team Vegan 2012 will begin on May 1 and 'run' through the end of June. You'll see here that some of your favorite activists are already on the team!!

How can I join the team?

Register now at! Post your 'page' to your social network on May 1, 2012 and ask for donations to support Vegan Outreach. (See, for example, this team page:

Do I need to run?

Nope. You can set another goal – like leafleting or cycling or having a bake sale and donating the proceeds to VO. You don’t have to have any goal or do any activity, though, besides raising funds for Vegan Outreach.

Why should I do this?

Several generous donors have pledged to match money raised from May 1 to June 30, 2012 up to $85,000! That means we can potentially raise $170,000 for this powerful advocacy!

Just so we’re clear, the money you raise goes to Vegan Outreach to print booklets for the Adopt a College program, not to any one team member, nor to another group or cause.

Simply put: being a part of Team Vegan will create more vegetarians!

The running, leafleting, baking, etc. is part of the fun. And there are prizes for fundraising! (See the Team Vegan site for more info).

We hope you’ll join us for Team Vegan 2012!

Please let us know via this contact form if you have any questions or problems with the Team Vegan site!

We'd be thrilled if you could join with your fellow dedicated members and help make Adopt-a-College 2012-13 the best year yet!
