Get Involved with
30 days of community, support, & great recipes!
We need you!
We rely on vegan volunteers from all over the country to help run our pledge programs from city to city.
There are a range of opportunities for you to get involved:
Volunteer for the vegan pledge
Volunteer to organize a new vegan pledge program, helping as many as 30 people go vegan and saving as many as 3000 land animals and countless sea animals.
Become a Mentor
Mentors commit to pair up with a pledge for the duration of the program and will check in with their pledges via phone, email, etc. on a weekly basis. Mentors must already be vegan and will be able to provide answers and resources to pledges.
JOIN US AS A SPEAKER
Featured speakers each week help and inspire our program members. Come and connect with our pledges and help them adjust to vegan living by telling them a little about your journey.
sponsor a vegan pledge
Sponsor a new vegan and save as many as 100 land animals per year and countless sea animals. A donation of any amount helps another person go vegan with us.
COMPANIESDo you have a vegan product you would like to get into hands of your target consumers? The PAN Vegan Pledge is a great way to get your product out to new vegans; the program is often the first exposure these individuals have to vegan products. Donating items for our care package (or coupons in lieu of perishable items) is a great way to help our pledges and get the word out about your product. Contact Elaine for more information about becoming a sponsor.
Fundraising & Events
In addition to our Vegan Pledge Programs, PAN hosts events several times a year that include everything from pizza parties to Vegfests to magic shows. Follow us on Meetup or Facebook to participate in upcoming events!
Facebook Birthday Fundraisers are an excellent way to show your support for PAN, and we’ve even paired with local shops to offer goodies when you show them your fundraiser!
For folks who have engaged in some level of activism, here are some things you can do to mobilize and encourage others to make the world a better place.
FOR THE PEOPLE [SOCIAL JUSTICE]
- Go vegan! For help transitioning to veganism, sign up for a Vegan Pledge in your area.
- Consume fair-trade chocolate, coffee, and other foods
- Give food to hungry people
- Volunteer for Food Not Bombs, or another local agency that redistributes food to the hungry
- Donate new or lightly-used clothes to the nearest homeless or battered women/children shelter
- Choose one of these options for donating your used sneakers
- Summer produce harvest share (collect produce from neighbors and friends and redistribute to Food Not Bombs or other local groups that specializes in distributing food to the hungry)
- Assemble bags of food and snacks to distribute to homeless (can buy paper bags, loaves of bread, jars of peanut butter and jelly, and granola bars in bulk at warehouse store); this can be a “sandwich-making party” where you and a bunch of friends get together in someone’s kitchen or do it with your family; in just one hour, you could probably make about 50 sandwiches
- At your next birthday party, ask guests to bring items from one of the following categories:
- Toiletries, babies’ items for a local women/children’s shelter
- Clothes for homeless shelter
- Cat/dog food, paper towels, rags for animal shelter/rescue org.
- Lightly worn or new business attire for Career Wardrobe or other similar org that enables persons to transition into the workforce
