Event: Vegan Cash Mob, Plus Gift Ideas

Season's greetings!

It's hard to miss that the holiday season is upon us, and we've got some fun activities happening in Victoria to celebrate this, with the 5 Days of Chrismukkah, as envisioned by Sarah Kramer!

In addition, we're encouraging you to check out some books from Friends of Animals if you haven't already - we have two cookbooks (Dining With Friends and The Best of Vegan Cooking) which are quite highly acclaimed, and also On Their Own Terms: Bringing Animal-Rights Philosophy Down to Earth by Lee Hall. Terms is a fantastic book, discussing and investigating vegan and animal rights ideas, and how to manifest these ideas into our world, making a better world for all.

All our books can be found at Sarah's Place, in Market Square off Pandora, and if you're not in Victoria, On Their Own Terms can also be ordered from Sarah's online shop to be shipped anywhere in Canada or elsewhere. While you're at it, look into picking up some stocking stuffers, there are lots of great vegan goodies to choose from!

And that brings us to our Vegan Cash Mob! Check out the details below, and please do join Sarah and myself at Green Cuisine on Tuesday for a dine-out:
Facebook event page:

Support your local vegan businesses this holiday season because they care about animals like you do!

The idea is to get together as many people as possible to "mob" a local vegan business with your support.

Please feel free to invite anyone, and EVERYONE you think might be interested. Everyone is welcome! Vegans, vegetarians, veggie-curious! :)
