Did you know that the world’s current population of human beings is about 6.7 Billion?
That’s a lot of people!
If only 1% of them are vegan, that means that there are 67 Million vegans walking the earth right now. That’s a lot of people too!
So here’s the deal. Every vegan has one year to help one other person become vegan. Just one. Forget about reaching the masses, forget about starting a movement, forget about all that stuff. Just spend the next year finding one person who will commit, and I mean really commit, to ending all forms of exploitation of all other animals. If every person who is now a vegan would do that one simple thing, then 365 days from now there would be 134 Million vegans. Now we’re getting somewhere!
Guess what, in another year there would 268 million vegans. Just by having every vegan work all year long with only one goal in mind, and that goal is to find one new vegan.
In another year there’d be 536 Million, keep on working and the year after that over 1 Billion, and then there would be 2 Billion, and then 4 Billion and then, just 8 short years from now, there would be a Vegan World, if you want it.
One vegan, every vegan, each helping one new person become vegan every year for the next 8 years.
The World is Vegan, if you want it. It’s not a slogan, it’s a plan.
