Biking Europe to help animals
Hi lovely people! Me and my friend Magdalena have been thinking about combining travels and social activism for a while and today we started an indiegogo campaign called ''Raising awareness and helping animals'' and we really need your help :) We want to bike Central Europe and the Balkans to help rescuing animals from slaughterhouses and raise awareness about what's going on with our climate. To make this happen we need to raise $ 1,500 in 35 days. Every contribution is priceless to us ,even one dollar can make a difference

Just Joined :)
Hi everyone! I'm new here. I've been vegan a year now (started as a resolution last year) and feel like I will be vegan for the rest of my life :)
I joined because I realized I needed more vegan interactions in my life! There is a group in my city that hosts vegan events, but only infrequently and I have yet to make any close friends. I consider myself pretty lucky in that most of my friends and family have been supportive of me. My mom actually became vegetarian last June!
What has been on my mind most recently is the wish that everyone I love could be vegan... I know that will probably never happen, but I can still hope haha. I have friends who say they love animals, but continue to eat meat even after being told where it comes from. I feel especially sad that my boyfriend of almost 3 years cannot see the cruelty he is adding to... I understand that I am the one who changed, but wish there was something I could do to get him to also change. He cares deeply for the environment so I try to appeal to that side of him. But I feel like he and other people do not fully understand the pain and horrors animals must go through to end up on their plates, otherwise surely they would give it up? Cognitive dissonance is a powerful thing...
Anyways, that was my little rant. I'm interested in seeing what I can add and take away from this forum, and hope to meet people who share my thoughts and beliefs :)

Old vegetarian, new vegan in Dallas
Hi! I've been vegetarian with various levels of "strictness" for many years. A couple of days ago I decided to go vegan. I finally watched "Specesism" and decided it was time. Funny thing is that there wasn't anything new to me in the movie, but it finally clicked for me to just do it. I'm lucky to be in an area where there are lots of vegan choices in stores and restaurants. Today I went to the Spiral Diner for brunch.
I think the challenges for me are the extra planning involved and the search for "comfort foods." I know I can manage with the planning and after awhile I will be used to which foods are vegan and which aren't. Right now I'm reading the ingredients on everything and I'm experimenting with some stuff. Sometimes they are good and sometimes nasty. I bought some "Simple Truth" veggie crumbles and they tasted like plastic.
I'd love to get some ideas for commercial vegan products that you all like. What are or were your favorite "transition" foods?

You can have the rest of the time, including 2 days off each week to hang out by the pool, go to the beach or get a part-time job. Message me on Facebook (Goliath Croix) if you’d like more details.

Looking for a place in CT
Last week I suddenly relocated from France to Connecticut. I NEED to get my kids in school as soon as possible, since it's already started, while I look for a more permanent place to live. Does anyone here live in the Bugbee district of West Hartford, or know someone who does? I need an address so my kids can start school. My children will be staying mostly with my parents who will be bringing them to school since I start work before the students can be at school. My husband will be joining us in 3+ months, so I'd expect to be out of your hair well before then. ;o)
Thank you sooo much!
You cannot imagine how much this means to me and my kids!

Portland Vegan seeking living space
I hope that this little note of mine finds you happy and healthy.
I'm a long time Portland resident (since 2005) with a steady job (I've been there over 7 years) who is seeking a new living space and/or the right person to find a space with.
House-sitting or similar arrangements are also of interest to me.
Right now I live in NE Portland with housemates that I get along well with. They can be personal / rental references for me. I've let them and our landlord know that I'm looking for a new place. I want to move as I'm transferring to a different position within my company at a work site downtown.
A regular bedroom isn't at all essential for me. I don't need much space and will consider pretty much anywhere that is safe, private, clean and keeps the weather outside.
Tiny houses, Vans, large closets, RVs, sheds, garages and similar arrangements could all work well!
I'm fairly flexible but prefer to be fairly close to inner SE Portland. I want to be close to 1 or more TriMet routes and the 15 or 20 bus lines work best.
I prefer informal arrangements though signing a lease if needed is not a problem. I'm looking to pay $500 or less each month, with all utilities, etc included in that price. I pay my rent on time.
I've been Vegan for over 20 years and strongly prefer to live with other Vegans or at least to be in a meat free house. I don't smoke, drink or do drugs of any sort and prefer to live with folks who share these choices, at least while at home. I'm also Dad to three wonderful kids who I want to feel comfortable and safe when they visit. To be clear, my kids live with their mother - I am only looking for a space for myself.
I'm a great housemate for someone who mostly wants their own space as I'm not usually home except to sleep, shower and such. When I am around, I enjoy socializing with my housemate/s if they're so inclined. I like to have occasional guests but won't be throwing any rowdy parties.
If I sound like someone you might enjoy living with, let's grab a beverage and chat!

Anybody from Dubai? Fancy a challenge?
In case anybody else is hanging out in Dubai in June, how about a Happy Cow challenge?
I've gone through the restaurant listings for Dubai on Happy Cow and found that many places have rather vague info attached and now reviews. To make things better for veggies in Dubai and visitors to the city, I'm planning to visit as many of the listed outlets this summer to try their nomz, update the Happy Cow listings, and add some reviews.
Fancy joining? Send me a PM here or email [email protected]
