Mission #30:
Make It Social

Dear Vegan at Heart,

Today’s mission is to connect with vegans.

If I had to name the most important factor in sticking with a new lifestyle choice, I’d say “social support.” Lucky for us, there are more than one million vegans in the U.S. and millions more vegetarians.

Signing up for organizations’ newsletters will keep you up-to-date on social events. New Yorkers are particularly spoiled with fun events sponsored by Veggie Conquest, Farm Sanctuary, Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary, and The League of Humane Voters, just to name a few. Supervegan keeps us in the know through their blogs too.

But non-New Yorkers, don’t despair! There are some great ways to connect with like-minded folks through the Intraweb, as I like to call it.

  1. Set your timer to 5 minutes.
  2. Register on one of the following websites:

    1. Vegan Drinks and Vegan MeetUp  (Monthly social gathering for vegans in cities across the U.S.)
    2. Veggie Boards (General message board)
    3. PETA 2 (For teens)
    4. Veggie Date (For singles)

  3. If you know of a vegetarian organization near you that holds events, sign up for their newsletter.

Hope to run into you on the scene!

;-) Marisa

Thank you for encouraging us to connect
The support of other vegans is so important in the beginning. It's so much fun to explore the new foods and lifestyle. Learning from others who have been through the first stages and sharing with those who are at the same point all help to make it fun and easier to stay committed for my health.
