Vegan Outreach is one of two top recommended organizations to donate to if you want to provide the most effective aid for the highest number of animals possible.
Effective Animal Activism (http://www.effectiveanimalactivism.org/) is based on the idea that we should do good well for animals. Altruism is great – but it also has to be effective, which is based around the idea of Effective Altruism (a more Utilitarian view of helping others).
One acre of land can produce only 250 pounds of beef, or 40,000 pounds of potatoes. And it takes 16 lbs of grain to produce just 1 pound of beef. Not only is going vegan (or at least vegetarian) better for the animals and for our health, but if we all did we could probably feed the entire world, and no one would have to go hungry.
Some specific activities that can lead to people learning about veganism:
• Include vegan links, banners or quotes in your email signature or on your website.
• Wear clothes that say “vegan”. This gives you a chance to talk with people or give out literature to people who ask about it.
• Write articles for/letters to publications, including newsletters of local groups like your local chapter of the Humane Society, the Nature Conservancy, sanctuaries, etc.
• Display information in public areas such as grocery stores, restaurants, libraries, campus bulletin boards, etc.
• Provide people with good vegan food.
• Join or start a local vegan society.
