Announcing our 30 Day, $10,000 Matching Funds Challenge to help fund the 2016 Cleveland VegFest!

A very generous local supporter has offered to match any donations, of any amount, up to an aggregate total of $10,000, to help us make 2016 Cleveland VegFest bigger and better than ever, reaching thousands of Northeast Ohioans with the vegan message!

This matching funds challenge is officially underway for the next 30 days. Please consider doubling your dollar with any donation, of any amount. Our mission, and yours, is to create a vegan world of justice for all beings. We can only do that by reaching the widest possible public audience and educating them about vegan living. This is what Cleveland VegFest is all about. Creating a major free-to-the-public event telling everyone in Northeast Ohio that veganism must be recognized as the next great justice movement, for the animals, for the Earth, and for our own well-being. The first two Cleveland VegFests have drawn over 3,000 attendees each year. We want to double that! Our new venue at the Cleveland Convention Center provides that potential, and has the promise of exponentially expanding the reach our collective voices. We need your help to make that a reality.

Please strongly consider donating whatever you can by October 3rd. This matching Funds challenge is a great opportunity for you to double the power of your commitment to helping create a just world for all. Help us make Cleveland VegFest, and vegan living, the talk of the town!

Scroll to the bottom of any page for the Donate link. In the comment line while processing your donation, please write "Matching Funds Challenge". Or, you can mail your donation to Cleveland Vegan Society P.O. Box 23, Cleveland OH 44096-0023.

Thanks so much, everyone!
