World Vegetarian Awareness Month - October
World vegetarian day has been observed since 1977 bringing together vegetarians from all over the world for a common cause. It brings awareness to the ethical, environmental, health and humanitarian benefits of a vegetarian lifestyle. We're observing growing trends, especially since Foot and Mouth and Mad Cow diseases, but about one million people a year become vegetarians in the US alone, and millions in Europe, Australasia too. Everything that we are doing is making a difference, and every little bit helps.
Where you find any group trying to promote this noble cause please give your support. Contact your local temple or community and find out how you can get involved this year.
Some ideas: stalls at stations, flyers on the street,
radio programs, special programs at schools-colleges Uni-techs or Universities,
Vegetarian Clubs/Socieities, invite family and friends to special dinners,
programs at our temples, Food For Life's, Advertisements in local and national
newspapers, Holmes show, How's Life? Good Morning, Breakfast show TVOne,
TV talk-back(s), Pacific Radio, Access Community Radio into the various
communities it targets all over the country.......do you have any other
avenues we can target, have a good think, brainstorm with some friends
- send me what you come up with, let me know what your doing so we can
enthuse others and do likewise
