1) YEAR END MATCHING DONATIONS

Don't forget that many employers will match your donation to nonprofits such as The Vegetarian Resource Group, often up to $5,000. A partial list of employers that match can be seen here at www.vrg.org/donate by checking "employer to match" and clicking on "Please Select."

Even if you don’t have a match, you can make a year end donation here.

2) VEGETARIAN VIDEO SCHOLARSHIP WINNERS

Jerry is a winner of The Vegetarian Resource Group Video Contest. He stated: I have always had a lot of respect and admiration toward vegetarians. But it was not until recently, I considered vegetarianism as part of my diet. I have always been interested in vegetarianism due to its water conservation and humane treatment of animals. But the cherry on top - the overwhelming health benefits - is what really led me to my final decisions.

See videos at: [ http://www.vrg.org/veg_videos.php#fu ]

You can be next year's VRG video winner! The next contest deadline is July 15, 2015. For more information on how to apply and the rules surrounding the contest, visit: [ http://www.vrg.org/videoscholarship.php ]
