The Countdown to VVC2015: Introducing the Vida Vegan Street Team!

Posted on Updated on

Hello, hello! Vida Vegan Headquarters is back with some really big news that will hopefully bring even more folks to future Vida Vegan Cons!

We’re introducing the new Vida Vegan Street Team, and all are welcome to join!

Trust me, your friendly organizers are no strangers to budgeting (here’s something you don’t see on Instagram: all the dang bowls of clean-out-the-fridge lentil soup I eat), and we totally get that registration costs are simply not in everyone’s budget. Once again, we will be offering full registration scholarships and relying on some very special assistants as we run around a new city, but we wanted to make it possible to volunteer and actually attend all the classes you want. The Vida Vegan Street Team concept is here to make that happen.

In return, based on the number of hours and type of activity you’re able to contribute over 2014-2015, Vida Vegan offers a special token of our appreciation: a point system to earn big discounts—and potentially cover the entire cost of registration for Vida Vegan Con III. Full details over here.

Interested? Read that link above and sign up by filling out this quick form. Potential speakers are welcome to come on board!

Oh, okay. We bet you’re wondering and we’re this close to announcing the GIANT news of just when and where our third conference will take place. We can’t say it seriously enough: if you’re signed up for our newsletter, you will hear it first!

Wanna Volunteer at the Galarama & Silent Auction for Chimp Sanctuary NW? Details Inside.

Posted on Updated on

Meet Jody, one of the beautiful creatures at Chimp Sanctuary NW 

As you’ve probably noticed, Vida Vegan Con II is shaping up to be quite a busy weekend, and we’d love your help throwing our Galarama & Silent Auction on Saturday, May 25.

Help us support the chimps!

This includes help setting up, minor decorations, scooping ice cream for the So Delicious spectacular (and we have no doubt you’ll get your fill of vegan ice cream), ticket taking, refreshments prep, Silent Auction donation listings, and breakdown/cleanup. We’d specifically love some help from OLCC-certified folks to help run the bar for the evening. Get in touch!

Please Note: This nonprofit soiree is held during Vida Vegan Con and is open to the public, benefiting Chimp Sanctuary Northwest. We ask that all volunteers are 18 or older. Please provide your details on the form below and we’ll contact you with an assignment and more details. All volunteers will be invited to our Assistant Appreciation night later this summer. If you’d like to get involved with weekend help at Vida Vegan Con somehow, please email us directly ASAP. Thank you so much! 

So, if you can help us out for one task or more, please fill out this form. Thank you!

The Galarama & Silent Auction is open to the public and will be held at Staver Locomotive in NW Portland on the evening of Saturday, May 25.
Tickets are available here. Want to donate a Silent Auction item? See this page.
