Letter to a New Vegan by Leigh-Chantelle from Viva la Vegan!
Written by Leigh-Chantelle   
Created Friday, 15 November 2013

There's a great little book being put together by some long-term vegans. They've been looking for submissions (which close today) of letters from other vegans for their Letters to a New Vegan. They are looking to create a community of words that can encircle new vegans everywhere, from all walks of life, as they embark on their own journeys.

If you would like to submit a letter please do ASAP as they've extended the submission date to allow for 100 letters.

Here's what I submitted:

Dear New Vegan,

Congratulations on getting here. You have chosen to think with your mind and feel with your heart – a talent that seems to be missing in most of the mainstream population.

I don’t care for the reasons you chose to become a vegan - and there are many reasons. Whether it’s for animal rights and ethical reasons (that’s the reason I started my vegan journey almost twenty years ago); health and dietary; environmental and sustainable living; religious or spiritual; or just because someone you respected planted the seed; you have chosen to choose, and you chose compassion. Always remember this.
