Free Cookies

Turns out, people will come to the vegan table for free cookies! Today was 350.org's international day of climate awareness. I got up way too early, made a LOT of cookies, and was in the park by 9 am, sitting in my vegan shirt waiting for the crowds.

Well, there weren't crowds, as such. But really, nobody expected them. It was really cool to be part of an organized event along with over 4000 other groups worldwide. (The Seattle group put together 350 zombies doing the Thriller dance and some island nations' governments held meetings underwater, because that's where they will be if nothing is done.)
The cookies went over well and a lot of older women asked, sincerely, what I use instead of butter and especially eggs. Some people took information on animal agriculture and climate change, and one person even took a Farm Sanctuary brochure!
Cookies, from left to right, are peanut butter-chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, and sparkled ginger.
