Wow! This Meetup now has over 1000 members! What a thrill!
Major congratulations (and a hearty thanks) to Ann and Peter, with the help, love, and support of our wonderful organizing team, for building such a vibrant community!
To celebrate we are offering a fun giveaway via a "virtual" event. All you have to do, between now and May 26, is go to this thread on our message board: http://www.meetup.com/AVeganLife/messages/boards/thread/34685962and leave ONE comment about why you joined this Meetup or make a suggestion for a future Meetup event.
"Vegan Life Colorado, Our MeetUp" is sponsored by Vegan Life Colorado, a nonprofit community building, educational organization, and Animal Action Network, a Denver based nonprofit vegan/animal rights and advocacy organization.
Vegan Life also supports and promotes VegFest Colorado, a large, fun, educational, and community building annual event for the Denver Metro area and beyond!
This group and its sponsoring organizations welcome everyone, regardless of dietary preference (vegan -for health, animals and/or environment-, ovo/lacto vegetarian, total vegetarian, pre-vegan, vegan curious, non-vegan, etc), to join our fun and friendly community to learn about a more healthy, compassionate, and eco friendly, plant-based/vegan lifestyle. We welcome your participation in a variety of social activities. We encourage your input and suggestions to help grow and nurture a wonderful community to benefit you, the animals, and our Earth.
Come join our Vegan Life family so you won't miss anything! Having a kind and supportive community is important for all of us.
Although we welcome everyone to join and bring guests to come explore a plant-based/vegan lifestyle, since we are based on learning more about veganism for our health, our animal friends, and our planet, and helping people try new foods, we do require that all food and beverages at our gatherings be plant-based /vegan. There would be no reason to have a vegan group if attendees eat at our gatherings the same as they do every other meal. In that case, we would simply be a social group that eats. It's also really nice for our members who live the vegan lifestyle when we all enjoy plant-based meals together. Thank you so much for understanding.
