  5. Mentor a new Vegan in solidarity with us. On June 7th to the 14th the Portland Oregon vegan community will be putting on the single largest vegan outreach event ever organized by a single community. The idea is to make hundreds of new vegans! TVW is the best time to experiment with and/or commit to a vegan lifestyle, and a perfect time to mentor friends and family. For one week, the Portland vegan community will be working together to support others in their transition to Veganism. Can’t be in Portland for the madness? While do the animals and the planet a favor and mentor a pre-vegan in solidarity with us. Spend the week eating out, cooking and shopping with your new vegan best friend! Help us make Try Vegan Week an annual event to remember! www.tryveganpdx.com

There are lots of ways to get the best possible use of the TVW schedule, and this training is open to new mentors and anyone else with an interest. It’s a vegan potluck, so feel free to come and share food. Try Vegan Week is just over two weeks away. TVW is the best time to experiment with and/or commit to a vegan lifestyle, and a perfect time to mentor friends and family.

  8. You don't have to have a date. Good news for everyone...at the meeting tonight we went over the books and found we were doing alot better on sponsorships that we expected and we are probably going to cut down the ticket price to $10 advance and $15 at the door. We also just picked some sponsorships in the last couple days Vita cafe and Integrated medicine center. Cool. Vita cafe is donating a $50 gift card for the winner of the best dressed contest.

  13. Hey Temptation sales went very well at Vegfest! We made over $1,000 dollars for Try Vegan Week! Despite almost constantly sales all day at vegfest we had a little too much ice cream shipped. It’s ok you came still buy some and support Try vegan Week. Papa G’s organic vegan deli has take 12 gallons of temptation to sell as while supplies last with proceeds benefiting Try Vegan Week. Flavors include: French Vanilla, fair trade Chocolate, and mint chocolate chip. While supplies last. www.tryveganpdx.com
  14. We need speakers and humane educators here in Portland Try Vegan Week Portland the week of June 7th to the 14th. These are open to title changes as long as the topics stay the same. I'm willing to help people research or format the talk. It doesn't have to be one Person. Teams of two or three people could do a workshop. I know many of us have tons of work to do with Vegfest/TVW but it's important to have the educational aspect of the week strong. You don't have to be an expert, just take a little time to research an issue and and become more knowledgeable. Great motivation. This applies to Vegans as well. In the case of lectures on global warming, eggs, dairy, fish There is no preaching to the converted. Vegans could always be better informed on these arguments. Contact me for a list of the workshops still open... PS this is open to non-portlanders who want to come to town. Remember we have vegan prom that week to!
  15. Reading event at Red and Black in PDX! Featuring four Vegan authors from the northwest! Gina Ranalli Seattle based Author of 13 thorns and Suicide Girls in the Afterlife “There are some very funny—and sacrilegious—moments (and) the author has serious things to say. But that doesn’t stop a lot of it from being irreverent and tongue-in-cheek…it’s certainly a fascinating—and for this reader, successful—experiment.â€

  21. It's on! I found the cold storage for a pretty small price Not free. Still raising money for the shipping, So keep that in mind. Washington,oregon peeps were getting temptation! I'm still working the details So these prices are not set in stone. $5.00 Waffle cones with toppings. $3.00 a bowl $4.50 a pint. 1).Expensive but we are renting cold storage and having it shipped here by freight, it's cheaper than flying to chicago 2). This is a fundraiser After Vegfest if we have any cases left. We might sell whole cases for a hell of deal. That is if we have any left after all is said and done. That is a big If.
