REQUEST FOR HELP AND SUPPORT OF OUR INITIATIVE FOR FIRST VEGGIE Festival in Republic of Macedonia

Dear All,

We are Association for animal right protection “ANIMA MUNDI” from Republic of Macedonia (http://anima-mundi.org.mk/), young, non-profit association with numerous members which passionately stands for protection of animal rights – sensitization  of the population regarding the difficult life they are exposed to,  termination of all forms of exploitation and abuse to which they are exposed to by the population. We act relentlessly, continuously for three and a half years with limited funds and resources completely voluntary.

We address You with request for help, with in your capabilities and wish, to support our initiative for FIRST VEGGIE Festival in Republic of Macedonia. In addition we will try to explain why this assistance is so required – for what we believe that we will have your understanding and support.

Although our resources are very modest, limited, we have great enthusiasm and intentions for organizing  an event during the World Days of farm animals, World Day of vegetarianism and  World Day veganism with a strong educative message and campaign for the promotion of human choice, respect and compassion for animals, stimulate human style of life, a philosophy of non-violence and vegetarian or vegan diet.

So far, with our modest resources and founds, on this topic we have organized symbolic information stands, Vegan party, open debates/discussions on animal rights that included info materials, stands and Vegan demonstration.

Realizing that it is necessary to act beyond, we start planning FIRST VEGGIE FEST in R.Macedonia, a festival with a broad and comprehensive program and with maximum visibility. This is a big step for us in our country where the animals are treated at the level of object that exists for the service of man, where are exposed to trauma, pain, extreme cruelty, to try to reach the general public and to be able to change something in favor of the good being of  animals.

The entire engagement of the members of ANIMA MUNDI is completely voluntary – namely dozen people with all their skill and capabilities  try to realize a rich program that will make people think, arise compassion towards animals, will challenge them to no longer be passive consumers and try to change their habits and lifestyle.

HOW WE ORGANISE THE EVENT?

We are trying to :

Print flyers, pamphlets, info materials of the reasons for vegetarianism, veganism (ethical, medical, environmental …) and if possible mobile ads on the bus to convey a message to a wider target group.

–   Organize a two-day informational stands in the center of the capital, Skopje.

–   Organize outdoor video screenings of documentary films  in order to be wached by a wider audience.

–   Organize music events with several bands – as to attract the target population.

– Degustation of  vegan and vegetarian food – to fight against the prejudices that Vege food is monotonous, poor, tasteless and unhealthy (There is a medical myth in Macedonia that meat is absolutely essential in normal diet of human population!)

–   Workshops with children – to stimulate compassion, love, concern for farm animals;

–   Organized lectures by nutritionists – Vegans / raw food promoters / vegetarians

–   If possible to some advertising space (at least one poster and one billboard) in the city center

Everything that can be done by us, we will do with love and devotion and we do not need finance. It includes organization and coordination of two day event, organization of small performance, concept of info materials, design of flyer, educational workshop with children, video screening of educational material…
