Anyone available to help spread the word about Vegfest at the Hawthorne Street Fair? If so text me and I will let you know where I am so I can give you a handful of postcards to hand out. This is an official leafleting for NW Veg so I will keep track of whoever shows up to help out if you have volunteer hours to fulfill. I'll be in the area a bit after this timeframe so don't worry if you show up a bit late as long as you'll have some time to hand out some postcards.
