Dear ________,

My name is Vadim and I am the organizer of Chicago Vegetarian Meetup
( and Chicago Vegan Meetup ( groups.

We currently have about 800 members between these two groups and we are looking for local Vegan/Vegetarian organizations/companies for mutual support and outreach.

There are three possible ways you could support our groups:
1. Cover our monthly expenses ( fees, supplies, and promotional materials) which are currently only about $20-25/month.
2. Add the links to our websites to your promotional materials.
3. Offer discounts for your events/products to our members.

In exchange you would get an opportunity to have "a targeted advertisement" among bunch of the local Vegan and Vegetarians who belong to our groups.

Please let me know your thoughts.

You can email me at or call my cell at 773-430-3737.

Looking forward to hearing from you.


Please post any suggestions what else should be discussed at the meeting.
