Megan E Labonte (aka Hoopmaster Sass) hooping at our fundraiser
It has been a while since I have posted, mostly because we have all been busy with our various lives, but things are mooving along with the project and I wanted to post briefly to let y'all know how things are going...
Our first fundraiser raised nearly $1000, thanks so much to everyone who contributed! Besides the art auction we had wonderful vegan pizza from Cafe Evolution, live music that culminated with several afro-beat musicians jamming some tunes and lots of dancing, while Megan Labonte led some hula hooping out in the parking lot.
Our vegan bellydancing week was lots of fun, with visiting bellydancer Amethyst helping us raise another $100 towards the bus. We found out there is a local vegan bellydancer too, named Shaina. You can hear Shaina and Amethyst interviewed on Vegan Radio.
Currently we are looking at some buses and coming up with some new fundraiser ideas. There will be a concert or two this summer. Other ideas are Vegan Bus Bingo and a hula hoop building workshop. If you have any ideas or would like to contribute in some other way please contact us!
