Earth Day recap

friends-and-cupcakes

Friends love cupcakes!

On Earth Day we wound up our little week-long campaign with a vegan cupcake giveaway outside of the Vancouver Art Gallery. We gave away over 500 cupcakes (and some cookies and tofurkey sausage).

Thanks to Evan for baking a huge batch of ridiculously good mini vanilla cupcakes. Paul from Mojave (rockin’ good band – check’m out) made a killer batch of red velvet cupcakes (which were gone in about 7 minutes). I made mini chocolate cupcakes. Several Supreme Master people came and gave out samples of veggie chicken and Tofurkey. They really are nice people doing good work.

Thanks also to Tofurkey for sending brochures with coupons, temporary tattoos, and pins.

I counted after and there were 17 people helping out. Thanks everyone!

More photos of the event can be seen on Evan’s blog and Miss604’s blog. Paul’s also got his recipe for red velvet cupcakes available on his blog.

The event was a great success. Many people left with information about the benefit of a vegan diet in helping to save the environment. We gave out 500 of our environment leaflets as well as a bunch of other information from other groups. It was fun and I’m looking forward to doing it again next year.
