Compassion Co Giveaway

Compassion Co Giveaway

VeganMoFo 2017 is starting soon and we want to make sure our lovely participants are dressed for the occasion!  We’re very pleased to announce our first giveaway in 2017, courtesy of the wonderful Compassion Co.

Compassion Co was founded by animal rights activists Andy Tabar and Paul Stellar, and all their clothing proudly conveys the vegan message.

Not only are they promoting kindness to animals – their products are also good for the Earth too! They only use either recycled or domestically grown organic cotton, and there isn’t a sweat shop in sight.  Compassion towards animals, humans and our planet?  This is a company we can all get on board with!

Compassion Co has kindly offered one lucky winner the t-shirt or tank top of their choice.

 

To enter, you just need to do two things:

  1. Sign up for VeganMoFo 2017 by 22nd September – if you haven’t already done so, the form is right here!  If you’ve already signed up, then you’re already in with a chance!
  2. Make your first VeganMoFo 2017 post on your registered social media account or blog on Sunday 1st October – but you were already planning on doing that anyway, right?!

It really is that simple!  Participants from anywhere in the world are eligible to win.  We’ll choose a winner at random and announce the lucky MoFo’er on Monday 2nd October.

In the meantime, don’t let lusting over their online store distract you too much from your VeganMoFo prep!

You’ve probably seen and sampled Beyond Meat chicken free strips and their newer product, the beef free crumbles, at your local natural foods grocers. They’ve also had a big presence at recent food conventions such as Expo West that was all the rage on twitter and instagram this past year.

 

bm1If you haven’t yet tried them this is the chance! The year supply will be 52 free coupons for one lucky winner! I’ll also choose 2 second place winners who will receive 10 free coupons each. With such a large prize, I decided that we should take Vegan MoFo 2014 out with a fun treasure hunt!

Hopefully you have been reading and commenting on blogs for the entire month. Below is a list of questions about posts different bloggers have made throughout this past month for Vegan MoFo. Your mission, if you should choose to accept it, is to find the answer to each question by checking out the main MoFo blogroll. All questions are pulled from blogs listed on this blog roll and all questions come only from blogs or tumblrs. I know a few Facebook or Livejournal pages accidentally made it onto the list, but they are not included in this treasure hunt.

You have until Friday, October 3, at 8 AM PDT. Send your list of answers and the links to the blog post to veganmofoblog at gmail dot com. DO NOT post your answers in the comments section here. I will choose the winners after the deadline. If no one finds all the answers I’ll go through the numbers and choose from those who have the most right answers. One entry per household please. This is for US residents only. The questions are as follow….

1) What type of sandwiches did Jojo and Sal make that fit into the themes of both their blogs?

GIVEAWAY: Salad Samurai by Terry Hope Romero

GIVEAWAY: Salad Samurai by Terry Hope Romero

This Giveaway is now Closed
Salad SamuraiWhen you are a vegan people ask you the same annoying questions over and over (ie Do you eat chicken?). But if you are a vegan that doesn’t like salad, let me tell you from first hand knowledge, that you are going to have some serious ‘splainin’ to do. People look at you, aghast, “But what do you eat???”.

Well folks, with this amazing new book by Terry Hope Romero I can easily answer now with salads like “Spring Herb Salad with Maple Orange Tempeh, or Deviled Kale Caesar Salad or Seared Garlic Chickpeas, Spinach, and Farro”. Terry’s book is full of recipes that I would actually not just eat but completely enjoy. The book has so many dressings like Chia Chipotle Dressing and toppings like Curried Cashew Pepita Crunch that you can add to any old boring salad you make to make it awesome too! Proteins like that 70’s tofu have been huge hits over on the PPK. And it’s arranged seasonally so you won’t be trying to use so-called “tomatoes” in the dead of winter. I am a salad hater no more! Here is a great and thorough review from Vegan Eats and Treats if you want to learn more and see tons of pictures.

Now if you want to win a copy from one the greatest vegan authors of our time you must have a US or Canada address, fill in your email, and answer me this question in the next 24 hours. What is the one thing that you like to add to any salad that will make it pop? Extra Rule! You can not answer with anything that someone ahead of you has already said. SO if the first comment is “Olives” you bet your ass you better not answer olives. Unless you want to lose!

If anyone would like to invite me to one of those I’m totally available. I’ll bring the Vegusto.
