    WOW!!! What an AWESOME time and AWESOME baked goodies, etc.!!! I am SOOO happy to have met everyone and be a part of such a great group!! Just wondering if we could do something like this at the Flea market! I would be willing to bring my own money to pay people and I think that would be a great place to reach people!! What does everyone think?? We don't need VegFund, do we? I know an associate friend set-up a table there and silicited his own business. WE could find out or just do it and see what happens! Tables there are 10.00 and it's every weekend, so we could do it a few times a year!
    Looking forward to more events!
    You guys ROCK!!!!
    Wish I didn't have to leave! I'll put together the video on DVD and let you have it, Christina.

    A big thank you to everyone who came out today, both to volunteer and to lend their support. We got 80 people to watch the Why Vegan video, got about 70 new email addresses who want to be added to our mailing list and distributed close to 500 pieces of literature. It was truly an amazing day. None of this would have worked without the dedication of our amazing veggie community here in Charleston!

    Hi all,

    One day until the big event!!!! So exciting. I'm asking anyone who has any literature that is even remotely family friendly to please bring it along with them. We have a shipment of literature that went MIA so whatever you can bring would help tremendously. Thanks again for volunteering. Tomorrow is going to be an amazing day!!!

    I'm getting some more of these printed today http://www.panveganpledge.org/images/materials/PAN_Environment.pdf If anyone else wants to get some printed too please go ahead. I could only afford to get about 100 of them. They are half size, front and back. 32lb paper or thicker is best.

    Hi All,

    I wanted to copy you the guidelines that Vegfund sent to me for our event.

    1. When purchasing the food and supplies, please be sure that you don't purchase any personal items. The receipts should only contain those items you'd like VegFund to reimburse. 2. When serving food, please use disposable gloves. VegFund reimburses for the cost of gloves. 3. During the event, everyone who takes a sample should be offered educational literature. Some may refuse, but most people will take the literature when it is directly handed to them with a food sample. Educational literature is a required part of all events we fund.

    I am working at the Green Fair for CCPRC, so I can't volunteer my time. But I will be so happy to donate some goodies! Since I will be onsite I will just deliver the food directly to your table, if that is okay. Thanks for doing this!
