Vegan outreach (vo) is an animal protection organization whose mission is to prevent violence towards animals. Vo informs people about how a vegan lifestyle can prevent the suffering and death of animals, and the impacts on people's health and the environment. This is accomplished primary through the distribution of our booklets your choice, even if you like meat, compassionate choices, the compassionate athlete, why vegan, and the guide to cruelty-free eating. These booklets are distributed at about 1,000 schools per semester and handed to well over 2 million students per year mostly on college campuses in the u. S. , canada, mexico, australia, and new zealand. Vo also maintains a vegan mentor program which has about 300 mentors and 600 mentees. Vo offers presentations on farmed animal advocacy. Vo has a registered dietitian on staff who gives presentations on vegan nutrition and maintains a well-respected website, veganhealth. Org, which summarizes the research on vegan nutrition. Vo has a weekly e-newsletter that goes to over 11,000 current subscribers and a food and lifestyle blog that goes to over 5,000 subscribers.

Despite it's name Vegan Outreach spends a LOT of time bashing other vegans and insisting veganism is too hard and fanatical. They should change their name, because well meaning people are donating to an org that only encourages people to cut back, not cut out speciesism. The last thing animals need is yet another organization that is too scared to ask for what it really wants.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Start promoting veganism unequivocally

Vegan Outreach is #1 recommended by Effective Animal Activism, which only recommends charities that are stellar at:

1. Being the best change for your buck. That is to say, they do the most good for your dollar.
2. Being scientifically proven to be impactul
3. Having room for more funding.

If you donate your money to Vegan Outreach, you are making a huge difference to animal's lives

You know where your money goes with Vegan Outreach - straight to printing leaflets that are handed out to college students. VO provides information to those with open minds, about animal exploitation and vegan health. I've participated in Team Vegan for 3 years and raised a few thousand dollars. VO does not lobby the government or stage protests, so I feel comfortable asking my friends and family to donate. They are the real deal.

I have donated to Vegan Outreach for many years now. They are run by a group of dedicated volunteers that hand out information about factory farming, the suffering farm animals endure, and the benefits of being vegan on college campuses. They have been super successful in educating people and helping them live compassionate lives. Once a person gets their information, they are more likely to help end animal suffering - what is better than that?!
