Gentle reminder and upcoming events

This is just a gentle reminder to everyone that the next Vegan Drinks Philly event will take place on:

Thursday, July 30th, 5:30 to 8:30 pm
upstairs @ Horizons (611 S. 7th St.)
**no cover**cheap eats and drinks**

Thanks to everyone who attended the VDP special event on July 4th. Due to your overwhelming generosity, we were able to raise $100 for each organization involved, Public Eye: Artists for Animals and The Vegan Bus!

Since the next VDP is so far away, I wanted to keep you informed about a couple of upcoming events you may be interested in attending:


Saturday, July 11, 2009 (and always)
11:30 am - 1:30 pm
Philadelphia Zoo entrance

The Philadelphia Zoo announced that it plans to move Kallie and Bette to a breeding facility sometime after the July 4th weekend. Officials are misleading the public by telling them that the elephants are moving to a "sanctuary" and that "no one is talking about whether or not they will be bred." We owe it to Kallie and Bette to at least get the facts out as much as possible about where they are going and what the zoo plans to do with them. The elephants MAY be moved by this Saturday, but we'll still be there, if only to mark the event with signs saying "Kallie and Bette- gone from Philly, but NEVER forgotten - we'll keep fighting for sanctuary!"

Can you block off an hour or two to help educate the public on the reality of the life of an animal confined in a zoo? Thanks!

Ongoing event (no specific date)

Mobilization for Animals: Make the Connection Exhibit

An eye-opening photo traveling photo exhibit that depicts animals suffering in various exploitative methods with accompanying photos of humans in the same situations. This is one of the most moving exhibits I have witness and is a really effective form of activism. The exhibit is based in Philadelphia, but doesn't get seen as much as it could due to lack of activist volunteers. Please help if you can!
