CAA Call to Action – September 19, 2017

Did we mention how amazing you are? Truly, CAA could not accomplish nearly so much without its team of dedicated volunteers. Thanks for all you do for the animals.

To everyone who volunteered at Twin Cities Veg Fest, thank you for being a part of the team and for helping to make the festival a huge success.

Our next big event is the 15th Annual Vegan Thanksgiving Potluck on Saturday, November 11. We need planning committee members for that. Sign up now!

Also, look forward to a new format for the next edition of the volunteer newsletter. That’ll go out on October 3.

Best wishes,

Justin Leaf, Communications & Events Coordinator

CAA Call to Action – July 11, 2017

Heads upTwin Cities Veg Fest is just two months away! There’s many ways you can help make this year’s festival a big success.

First, we’ve just launched our Twin Cities Veg Fest fundraiser, and we need your help with getting the word out. We’re trying to raise $12,000 by August 9. The first $6,000 will be matched by a group of generous donors.

Please share this Facebook post and tell your friends what the festival means to you. Ask them to donate and be sure to give them this link: https://tinyurl.com/TCVF17.

Of course, you’re also welcome to make a contribution if you have a few dollars to to spare. Every bit helps us reach our goal.

This year as we take the festival outside to Como Park, we’re very fortunate to have an amazingly enthusiastic and dedicated planning committee led by volunteer Torie Meltzer. They’re doing an awesome job putting things together, but now we really need all of you to get involved. Here are some of the ways you can help out:

  • Support the fundraiser! Make a donation and/or encourage your friends to donate.
  • Volunteer at the festival! A list of volunteer positions and the sign-up form are coming soon.
  • RSVP and invite friends to the festival using the Facebook event page.
  • Follow us on social media and share everything about the festival.

Together, we can make our first-ever outdoor Twin Cities Veg Fest a fantastic success. And meanwhile, we’ve got a number of other upcoming events that need your volunteer support. Scroll down for all the details.

Best wishes,

Justin Leaf, Communications & Events Coordinator
