Days: 215. Events: 400. Lives Saved: Countless.

Written by PETA | August 20, 2010

On Saturday, PETA’s DC Outreach Team, which is based at the Nanci Alexander Center for Animal Rights in Washington, D.C., held its 400th outreach event of 2010. No, that’s not a typo! To mark the occasion, PETA volunteers and interns helped hand out almost 1,000 copies of PETA’s vegetarian/vegan starter kit (VSK) and The Kids’ Guide to Helping Animals magazine.


DC Outreach


One volunteer estimated that 90 percent of passersby took a VSK. Many people said that they had been thinking about going vegetarian and were impressed by the numerous vegan dining options in the D.C. area. Since a whopping 45 percent of people who pick up a VSK kick the meat habit—and since every vegetarian saves more than 100 animals a year—the Outreach Team is making some tracks!

To be a lifesaver for animals wherever you go, please join PETA’s Action Team so that you can order literature, get tips, and get started helping animals right away.
