MISSION STATEMENT

There are animal welfare vegans and animal only-fight-against-other-vegans abolitionist vegans. V-EGANISM is neither. Just as there are positive things and negative things about conservatives and liberals, there are positive things and negative things about welfarists and abolitionists. V-EGANISM avoids all 4 "political parties", and remains as an independent in thoughts and actions, only choosing what is right and just for animals, humans, and the environment. V-EGANISM however does have a mission statement which is how the founder of veganism, Donald Watson, originally coined the word's definition. It was a perfect definition then and it still is a perfect definition now! So the following paragraph is V-EGANISM's official Mission Statement--and nothing more, nothing less, we are simply called, "Vegan Activists", with no additives:

"V-EGANISM educates people and helps people and animals regarding the political and social justice cause, Veganism, which is a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude--as far as is possible and practical--all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing, cosmetics, household products, entertainment, service or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of humans, animals, and the environment."

Vegan Voodoo

Good Things Come in Pink Boxes


I was at the Portland Saturday Market today (it's open on Sunday's too but they never changed the name to Portland Weekend Market). But before it opened, I went just a couple blocks north to wait in line for 1 1/2 hours (thank you tourists!!) to get my one & only favorite Voodoo Doughnut:

The Vegan Cock-N-Balls

When you bite into it, creamy white filling oozes out! It's sinfully delicious!




After Voodoo, I went strolling through the huge Portland Saurday Market. I was looking for (as I always do) something for my animal kiddies. But I have been also looking for a cruelty-free, plush fabric, soccer-like ball to play indoors with to add variety to my excercise program. 

Lo and behold! I found it! Actually, it's a dog toy ball to play with very large dogs, but this is a full soccer-size ball--the only one they had left--as if it was waiting for me! I had picked one out online at Amazon to get soon, but Amazon would have cost a few dollars more.

It was a great day to get out indeed!

  1. Chocolate cream on the doughnuts look a bit messy because I carried the doughnuts sideways and the cream got stuck on the linings and box, so I had to paste it back on.
