It’s that wonderful time of year again, when we get to share with the public and donors about how much your donations matter in helping us end violence towards animals.

As the Canada Outreach Coordinator for Vegan Outreach, I have been able to travel all over Canada, impacting as many students and the public as possible, informing them about the suffering of farmed animals and supporting them in making the change to go vegan.

This past year (with the help of other activists) I was able to hand out over 34,300 Vegan Outreach booklets, show 541 students Virtual Reality, and sign 4,357 people up for 10 Weeks to Vegan. 10 Weeks to Vegan is an amazing 10-week email series that helps others with going vegan. It's been an amazing way to help connect with more students and the public, raising important questions and helping to answer them while linking students with further info if they are interested. It was a wonderful and successful past year all around. I support Vegan Outreach for many reasons. We have an amazing ability to reach millions of people with our outreach materials at schools, festivals, and events all over the world--and online.

We recognize that this time of year is a trickier one for us in getting donation goals met because of the Coronavirus. But we still want to make donors aware that their donations are going to good use and we will always do anything we can to be able to reduce and end animal suffering and to help others do the same. I am also very grateful to work for an organization that not only cares about the animals, the planet, and people, but also cares about its employees. At this difficult time where many had to be laid off, we were able to find alternative work and online projects for our staff to be able to continue working, so we can continue our goal of ending animal suffering. We do hope to be back to the schools and community events as soon as possible and this is where your donations help an incredible amount, and are so truly appreciated beyond what words can even express.

I am inspired daily by the changes I see in others and the compassion people show when they have been educated about the issues we introduce them to. The experiences we have with students at universities and the general public are amazing. We hear from students who want to go vegan but don’t know how, who think it’s hard, are scared of missing nutrients, etc. Being able to guide them and give them support to be able to make the changes confidently is a wonderful gift to be part of.

People all over are opening their eyes to the truth about the cruelty to animals and they don’t want to be part of the cruelty anymore. Even the more difficult conversations can be turned around where they have an interest in making the change and showing support for our tactics.

We have the ability to change many lives while on these tours. Using Virtual Reality has been extremely successful. Many thank us for showing them the reality, and for what we are doing. I see how impactful it is when we are at the schools. We are able to get people to make concrete changes and to get the word ‘speciesism’ circulating on campuses all over.

Every dollar raised by Vegan Outreach will result in more people being reached. Remember that all donations during this period will be doubled. Please help with any amount you can. Anything and everything helps and is very much appreciated :)

Much love to every single one of you :)

Thanks a ton in advance.
