Slap us with some leaflets and Ill give you 60 minutes. 30 for your birthday and 30 to grow on. :)

Happy 30th! (I just had mine too - wish I had this idea for mine..)

I think it's a great way to take advantage of being the boss on your birthday!

Thanks, Melissa and Niki. Melissa, send me your address at and I'll send you leaflets to your heart's delight. :)

Happy Birthday Jasmin!!

People never listen to my birthday requests! It falls right on Thanksgiving this year, and I still can't get the meal to be dead-animal-less. :( I will totally send out a mass e-mail though for you! I already tried to convince people to not eat turkey via a facebook note. Maybe email will be more effective?

Hey Calla!

Different strokes for different folks. Some people react to books, some to video, some to brochures, some to songs, some to a tap on the shoulder. For T-Day and your birthday, you could definitely ask for a yummy vegan cake, and you could also provide some delicious vegan entrees. The best way to a burgeoning vegan's heart is through their stomach. Also, keep in mind that you might very well be reaching people more than you might think. My brother, a Kansas-living meat-eating guy, told me last year that at his carnivorous Thanksgiving, he thought of me as he ate his dead turkey. That, to me, is a planted seed. Since then, he's slowly but surely been trying many more vegan options. Sometimes people get there in their own time; that's what we can hope for.

Keep plugging... keep figuring out what modality will reach what family member...
