Vegetarian Leafleting Outside Jay-Z Concert

Mercy For Animals invites DFW activists to a concert leafleting event. The Jay-Z concert will bring in hoards of people from all parts of Texas. If for every hundred leaflets handed out just one person decided to go vegetarian, that alone would save 95 lives a year. So come out and join like-minded people with one common goal: to end animal suffering. Please note that you do not have to be a vegan or vegetarian to leaflet and speak out against animal cruelty.

Vegetarian Leafleting Outside Jay-Z Concert
American Airlines Center - west side
2500 Victory Avenue
Dallas, TX 75219
Tuesday, February 23, 2010
5:30PM - 7:00PM

All leaflets will be provided--just bring yourself, your energy, your smile and your passion for helping animals. Contact Eddie G with any questions or concerns at eddieg@mercyforanimals.org or by phone at (469) 826-2644.

Why leaflet?
Most meat eaters aren’t aware of the horrors animals experience on factory farms. By leafleting at large public gatherings like concerts, grocers or campuses, you help to educate and raise awareness about the mass amount of chickens, pigs, cows and turkeys used for food in the United States. Leafleting is also a great way to meet new people and break any shyness habits you may have.
