Incorporation papers submitted
The first step on our way to 501(c)3 status
Heartfelt thanks to the following people, who sent donations to help defray our legal and accounting costs in our quest for tax-exempt status (see page 3 for explanation). Over $200 was collected as of the end of February, 1997--and already put to good use for fees needed to submit forms for incorporation.

Spanish edition of
"101 Reasons Why I'm a Vegetarian"
in the works

Teresa Getting of the Devanand Yoga Center in Jackson Heights, New York, gave the VivaVegie Society a call just before the December holiday season to let us know that she was translating "101 Reasons Why I'm a Vegetarian" into Spanish. The Devanand Yoga Center, where Ms. Getting is a yogi, is frequented mostly by people whose primary language is Spanish. Teresa felt frustrated that she was not able to share our manifesto with many of her friends and colleagues there, so she decided to take on the task of translation.

When we heard of her endeavor, we suggested that she do it for more than just her friends at the yoga center, that she provide the manuscript to us to digitize and upload to our Internet Web site.

We'll keep VivaVegie members up-to-date on the project. Eventually, we would like to produce a paper version to distribute via advocacy tabling in Hispanic neighborhoods.

Thank you, Teresa Getting!
