Fired-Up Fridays VII

This is our SEVENTH Fired-Up Friday ! So, it should be our best one yet!

We have:

    complaints to charitable organizations concerning their wasteful "tokens of appreciation"

and. .

    requests for healthy lunches in our schools that actually contain food.

Let's get fired-up!

*Remember to never underestimate the power of fired-up vegans in large numbers*

Was there a specific list of organizations that were the most offending...?


I have one for next week... its not necessarily a veg*n fire-up, but it does concern animals.

How about contacting our auto mechanics to ask if they use or offer wildlife friendly antifreeze.  I know lots of animals die every year by accidentally ingesting coolants containing ethylene glycol (most baby wipes and things like swiffers contain ethylene glycol too ???) which tastes sweet. Wildlife-friendly antifreeze contains propylene glycol which is not sweet.  (Now I think there are some limitations on this type of coolant; It may not be suitable for subzero climates for instance)  But it seems like a fairly simple request?



Thanks, MDVEGAN!  You helped me do my Fired-up Friday and be lazy at the same time.  (I borrowed liberally from your letter.)

Anybody else FIRED UP???


Great letter!  In total agreement here.  Lots of times, I don't even want the gift you get for donating.  An opt out option is a great idea! More money for the cause and less stuff filling up my closets!


Thanks  :)
