Our sixth annual US VegWeek wrapped up on Sunday, April 27 and by all measures, it was a resounding success!

This year’s campaign nearly doubled our impact for animals with more than 6,350 people nationwide taking our 7-Day VegPledge – that’s more 130,000 meat-free meals!

Here are some highlights we’re excited to share:

We’re also thrilled by the inspiring feedback we’ve been receiving from hundreds of VegPledgers! Here are some of the stories that have been shared with us so far:

  • This experience was life-changing and fun! I’m more conscious of the foods I put into my body, and have never felt better. It has been a blast trying new cruelty free recipes! Challenge passed! (Clare in Miami, Florida)
  • After learning what foods are naturally vegan, it was all very easy. I love this life! It forces you to make better choices for not only you, but the entire world. (Tonya in Oxford, Michigan)
  • I have been wanting to live a healthier, cruelty-free lifestyle for a long time now, and this challenge gave me the encouragement that I needed to get going. Once I started I felt so much better about myself and physically, that it was easy to do. (Karen in Addison, Illinois)

USVW_VolSharing a positive message about the how plant-based foods help protect our  health, the planet, and animals, US VegWeek brought meat-free to thousands of people nationwide — from California to New York to Florida to Texas and everywhere in between! We’re so grateful to all of our amazing volunteers, partners, and sponsors who helped make this year’s campaign our best yet.
