In case you needed a bit of levity and a bit of awwwww-inducement in your day — not to mention a touching reminder of what we’re fighting for (as if we needed it!) — here’s a lovely short video from the BBC about baby animals:
Loved the bit with Stephen Fry at the end. You could tell he’s incredibly moved by all that he’s seen, and who can blame him? Lucky man.
We made it to the Dallas Green Festival! We had a booth at the event at the Texas Discovery Gardens yesterday, and boy, were we lucky. Great weather, great location (we had tons of foot traffic!), and great results. We added over 50 folks to our Local Action list, and generated over 5 full pages of signatures for the Red Lobster petition. Yay! Considering that this is the first organized event we’ve done since launching the Dallas group just a little over a month ago, I consider this a huge success.
Check out some of the pics we took of the event in our new Photo Gallery. There aren’t a lot right now, but we’ll be better prepared in the future. We were too excited to take a lot of photos!
The next event at which we’ll be sponsoring a booth is the Texas State Veggie Fair at White Rock Lake. That’ll be on Sunday, October 23, from 11am to 6pm. If you’re not in the mood for deep fried corn dogs and would rather celebrate the arrival of crisp autumn weather with a bountiful vegan feast, this is your place to be. Stop by, say Hi, and consider signing the petition for the Red Lobster protest. Hope to see you there!
