1. Activist Feedback

Grace, who recently leafleted at the Outcry Tour concert in Seattle, writes:

It was incredible.I wish I could do this every day until every animal is free.

I was alone this time and it was just perfect for a not-so-huge event like this one because they have one big entrance so people were arriving from pretty much the same direction.There were a lot of high schoolers and college-age young adults as well as middle-age and older adults who came to enjoy the Godly concert.

As usual, I got many thanks from concert goers and positive feedback.When I see a group of young people (like 7 or more), I quickly approach them with smile and say thanks for coming, enjoy the concert, then "Bam" the leaflets, but there's always ONE individual in that group who will say no thanks without even looking what this leaflet is about. This person then later realizes that all of his or her friends got the leaflets and eventually comes back to me and ask for one (talk about peer pressure, lol). I see this type of behavior all the time...

The weather was very nice too. We don't get much sun in Seattle as you know.

A parking lot attendance guy ran toward me towards the end around 6:40pmto ask for a leaflet and then he ran back to his work area. Watching him reading CVA leaflet really made my day.He later gave a shout out to me as I was leaving the area, and he said, “God bless you!”

It has been an incredibly rewarding experience to work with CVA.Leafleting is getting easier and easier as we are putting the right information in the right hands like this one: sending a true Christian message to Christians who are accustomed to animal products/exploitation.

Two guys showed up with "repent your sin" signs got some confrontation from concert goers, i feel kinda sad. why can't we all get along as a Christian and love all beings including animals.

By the way, I checked the field to see any booklets were thrown out after I was done, and I only found 3 leaflets on the ground which is not bad at all.They were in good shape so I gave those 3 to incoming people.

Many concert goers came early and I felt so happy watching them reading CVA leaflets attentively while waiting in line.
