From Vegan Outreach:

Eating for Peace

"Are there people in your life - friends, family members and co-workers - who still eat meat? Do you often wonder how compassionate people who care about peace, the environment, and ending world hunger can continue such a destructive habit? Don't you wish they'd give vegetarianism a try?

"Well, ask them to register in the Eating for Peace Veg-A-Thon, June 1 - June 21, 2004. They can join hundreds of others across the country who will be giving up meat for 21 days and raising sponsor pledges (just like in a walk-a-thon) for humanitarian assistance to children in war-torn countries around the world. Registration is $25 ($20 if registering before March 21) and each participant will receive a sponsor sheet, an Eating for Peace button, a Vegetarian Starter Kit (with vegetarian recipes and info on vegetarianism), and discount coupons for vegetarian products.

"For more information, please see our website at: www.eatingforpeace.org, or contact Eating for Peace at 415-902-2392, or info@eatingforpeace.org"

Is anyone going to encourage their friends and/or family members to participate in this?

This looks really cool...we'll definitely post some stuff about it up at the Diner. Vegan Outreach is a great organization. Their "Why Vegan" pamplets are very effective. A lot of people take them and give them to their family and friends.
