Greetings, Vegan Long Island members—all 861 of you!

Wow. 35 new members since last month. Welcome, new members!

I hope this finds you well. Lots to share...

1. Celebrate Earth Day with one of these easy online activities: http://greenyourdiet....­

2. Want to hula hoop? VLI member Ramona, recently featured on Black Fitness Today (http://blackfitnessto...­ ), announces weekly hula hooping classes on the first three Wedesdays of every month. Details at her meetup group, which you can join here:­

3. Here's an opportunity to show your love and support for a young Brooklyn vegan, Bud Burdick, who was diagnosed with AML (acute myeloid leukemia) last summer. Bud's friends have organized a benefit on May 3, as well as an online fundraiser. Details here:­  Thanks to VLI member Eddie for sharing this information with us. You can read Bud's own words about his life (his journey to veganism, moving from Rochester to NYC, his recent experience with cancer treatment, and more) at his blog:­

4. From VLI member Hayley: Cat sitter wanted. 1 hour every evening, Mon - Fri, some weekends. Times are somewhat flexible. Must live in Levittown or very close, or it won't be worth it. References required. Call Hayley: 516-216-7462.

5. Three upcoming NYC events to help HEART, an organization that teaches kids about human rights, animal protection, and environmental ethics: this Thursday's Vegan Drinks, next month's Clothing Swap, and Veggie Prom! Read more at the VLI message board:­

6. Here's a deal for great vegan food in NYC's financial district—a $5 voucher for $10 purchase at Terri's new location, 100 Maiden Lane (voucher expires in 3 months):­

7. Food Revolution 2013 Summit is a free worldwide broadcast of interviews with 25 speakers , April 27 - May 5. More info & registration here: http://www.foodrevolu...­

8. Meetup email: did you know you can adjust the amount you receive? Here are three ways:
a) At the meetup site, if you hover your mouse on "Account" (upper right corner) you see a drop-down menu with "Email and Notifications." Select that, and you'll see a page listing your groups.

If you click on the "Email and Notification Settings" option for Vegan Long Island, you should see "How often do you want to receive Meetup reminders?" as the second heading down. You have the following options:
- as they are sent
- at most once a day
- don't send me reminders
b) You can do the same thing with message board update notifications.
c) If you don't want comments on events you've RSVPed yes to arriving in your email, you can discontinue those emails. On an event page, you should see a box that says "Notifications" under the comment window. Select "Don't notify me about conversations in this Meetup Group."

9. Reminder: event organizers wanted. Do you want more events in Nassau, more events out east, outdoor events, potlucks? So do I! That's why VLI needs more event organizers. Here is some guidance for prospective organizers—check it out, and email me if you're ready to volunteer.

As always, I'm grateful for your kinder, greener, healthier choices. Thank you!
