WHY VEGAN STREET IS UNIQUELY DESERVING OF YOUR SUPPORT.
Since we started relaunched VeganStreet.com in 2013 (you can read our whole history here), John and I have been creating free content in the form of memes, recipes, guides, essays and more with the overarching intention of helping to shift the public towards veganism. Maybe it’s through education, maybe it’s through dismantling myths, maybe it’s simply through offering simple and accessible but delicious recipes. In these years, we have seen and charted a massive growth in interest and willingness to shift away from eating animals. The materials we create are done to be not only comprehensible to non-vegans but compelling: There is no point in what we do if it doesn’t have a positive influence and in order for that to happen, it has to resonate in one way or another, it has to draw in. Coming from communications backgrounds in graphic design and writing, it is always our goal to use these skills for creating a more compassionate and sustainable world. It is through empowering people that idealistic notions that feel out of reach become a manifested reality.
. . .
Every week since 2013, John and I have created these materials -- more than a thousand memes and more than 350 recipes -- without a salary or budget but also without the overhead and clogged channels of an official non-profit. We have occasionally thought about turning Vegan Street into an official non-profit but kept returning to the fact that this kind of in-between state works for us. It’s straightforward and uncomplicated. If we get an idea, we can run with it and not have to run it past departments or boards. That said, we dedicate many unpaid hours each month to creating this free content, which costs money and time away from our business.
And this leads me to my pitch: If you are interested in supporting our mission, the good news is it’s easy and very affordable through Patreon: For as little as $1.00 a week, you help us continue creating the materials that are helping to shift people toward a vegan reality. (If you want to give more, that is possible, too: You determine your level of giving.) Our Patrons give with no strings attached, and we are grateful for that, but we do try to throw in some special-to-Patrons content, like additional recipes, when the time affords us the ability to do that. If a monthly donation isn’t your thing, one-time giving is also possible through PayPal (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Thank you for your consideration!
