We're hosting our 8th annual Vegan Food Showcase on the West Bank of the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, and we need your help to make it happen!
Join us for one of the most fun and effective actions we do to advocate for animals: give away free vegan food samples and literature about factory farming to thousands of college students. You can help out for one hour or three, and enjoy the food and smiles as we hand out samples to the campus public. We need help to set up starting at 7 am, and especially need help between 10 am to 2 pm to giveaway food. We'll need help until 4 pm to clean up. Please call or email Unny at 612-276-2242 to sign up for your slot!
Have you enjoyed one of Compassionate Action for Animals' social events, witnessed the results of our outreach, or seen the powerful impact of an education event we hosted? We advocate tirelessly on behalf of farm animals throughout the year, and we can't do it with your support.
If everybody on this list donated $15 - just $15! - we would be able to double our outreach and education this year! Your support will allow Veg Week to grow, continue and expand Bridges of Respect, and will help us advertise our Vegan After Dark events, dineouts, and potlucks.
We are passionate about advocating for animals, and it's your involvement that makes it possible. Please consider donating $15 (or $50, $10, or $5 - whatever you can afford) today! Thank you for your support.
Making a Real Difference in Today's World by Matt Ball
Everyone who wants to make the world a better place faces the same challenge: opening people's hearts and minds to new ideas.
Those who are successful in making the world a better place are students of human nature. They understand that each of us is born with a certain intrinsic nature, raised to follow specific beliefs, and taught to hold particular prejudices. Over time, we discover new "truths" and abandon others, altering our attitudes, principles, and values.
Even though we can recognize that our belief system changes over time, at any given point, most of us believe our current opinions are "right" - our convictions well founded, our actions justified. We each want to think we are, at heart, a good person. Even when, years later, we find ourselves reflecting on previously held beliefs with a sense of bemusement (or worse), it rarely occurs to us that we may someday feel the same way toward the attitudes we now hold.
