Dearest Vegan Buddies,
Some of you may have noticed that I have not been around much recently, and some of you probably won't have noticed at all. Unfortunately, events in my "real world" took over for a while. If you have been trying to contact the Vegan Buddies Project, I am so sorry for the delay in getting back to you. You should have received a reply by now. If you hadn't noticed our absence, then here's a reminder that we're here.... and we're back, bigger and better than before!
Although it's almost the end of January, it's still a great time to encourage people to start off the new year on a more healthy and ethical foot. We now have more than 500 friends here on Myspace, if every person directs one friend to the Vegan Buddies Project, we could "convert" hundreds of peope, and in doing so, save THOUSANDS OF ANIMALS!
I'm working on a very exciting new website that will be a home for vegans on the internet. Watch this space and I'll get back to you soon.... be ready to upload a new profile and be loud and proud about being vegan!
Current mood:optimisticCalling all vegans, calling all vegans! If you live in or near Jersy City, please get in touch! 2 vegetarians need your help!
Current mood:hopefulHi Vegan Buddies!!!

If you can forward this message, along with some info about the Vegan Buddies project, to any e-lists, newsgroups, message boards or other networking sites that you ar emembers of, that would be great.
Thank you :)
Current mood:happyHi everyone :)
An update from Vegan Buddies base camp. First of all, we're really excited by the interest and enthusiasm that the Vegan Buddies project has generated. Thank you to all our friends who have signed up as mentors, and to all the "wannabes" who have contacted us in need of help. We hope that we're providing you with a useful resource, and that going vegan doesn't seem so daunting/filled with sacrifices/unhealthy/weird as it might have done before you found us!
We're being contacted by people around the globe, the most recent call for help coming from someone in Australia! This is great, as it means news of the Vegan Buddies Project is spreading far and wide. We've successfully partnered-up people in Toronto, DC, Colorado, NYC and CA; we've put people with some fairly serious health problems in touch with nutritionists who can carefully guide them along the path to veganism, and we've created some genuine friendships in the process.
And this is what it's all about.... saving animals, making friends, and forming a global vegan community so that people know even if they don't have another vegan in their immediate midst, they aren't alone, they're part of a great movement to make this world a kinder, better, happier, healthier place.
Thank you for being part of it :)
