#vkidsdoittoo – Make Way For Cuteness

veganandahalf: Pure joy. ♥ ♥ ♥

Happy Monday! To my American readers, happy holiday! And to the rest of the world, hello, and have I got a way to kickstart your work week right!

#vkidsdoittoo is a “hashtag campaign” I started last month, as a way to show the world that vegan families get to do all the same fun, fantastic, and yummy stuff as non-vegan families. Because vegan kids are normal kids!

But what’s neat is how it’s become something else as well – a place for vegan families to connect with one another, to find solidarity and comfort, and for vegan kids (wo might not know any other vegan kids in real life) to find community. As Instagrammer sholkogan said, “the best part is showing my kids this feed! i hear lots of “just like me!” and “just like us!”"

And that just makes me so happy. So please, keep participating, keep sharing, tag your friends and invite them to join, tweet about it, get the word out, and let’s keep this thing going and growing!

A few choice pics from the past few weeks:

A super-huge THANK YOU to everybody who’s been sharing, and to everyone who’s helped spread the word so far. I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to scroll through all the pics and see all your amazing, adorable, thriving vegan children.

So, thank you thank you, and please keep ‘em coming!

#vkidsdoittoo: Highlights From The Hashtag

August 19th, 2014 - posted under: Furthermore » Inspiration

A few weeks back, as I was preparing for our camping trip, I got to thinking about quintessential childhood experiences. Those cliches, like a hot dog at the ballpark, popcorn at the movies, and of course – s’mores on a camping trip. And there are other, non-food-related ones as well: going to the zoo or [...]
