To create and nurture a supportive Veg community for our children that embraces environmental, health and ethical views. Our collective's purpose is to offer and receive support and encouragement, share our experiences and make new friends! We also welcome aunts, uncles, cousins, grand-parents, other caregivers and their animal companions :)
Our group will NEVER ask for membership fees. If you own a "VEGAN" / "Cruelty-Free" business and would like to see your logo and link on our front page, the monthly fee is $25, with 6-month sponsorships minimum, payable by Paypal.
We use the sponsorship cash to pay this website's hosting fees, pay for occasional meeting space rentals, donate to local farm sanctuaries..etc
