Veg Groups January Newsletter
What’s new with Veg Groups?
We’ve decided to hold off on building VegMovies.com so that we can expand Must Love Veg internationally. We also started TechForAnimals.org to help animal groups connect to tech talent for help with their websites and social media presence.
What’s new with Must Love Veg?
MustLoveVeg.com is a free worldwide event calendar that is focused on helping people find vegan and vegetarian events near them. By the end of 2017 we stripped out the membership feature and cleaned up the site to focus exclusively on events. This has also enabled us to start adding more veg events from anywhere in the world!
- We took out the membership feature to focus on events.
- We have over 4,700 upcoming events on the calendar from over 800 groups across the U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia, Spain, Thailand, and more!
- Our Twitter account now has over 700 followers.
- Our Facebook page still needs some love.
What’s Tech For Animals?
Tech For Animals is a Facebook group that we created to help connect tech talent with organizations that are helping animals and in need of skilled volunteer talent. People and organizations can ask questions or post projects they need help with in Design, Software Engineering, Marketing, PR, and more. It’s not specifically vegan focused because we want to reach the most people possible who can help organizations. There are close to 200 members of the group already and several organizations have posted tech job openings and projects they need help with.
