The Kind Life Club - THIS SUNDAY!

We are so excited to have The Kind Life Club from Decatur, IL join us this Sunday!

Their description on FB:

The Kind Life Club at Millikin University is a group devoted to developing healthy lifestyles through veganism and vegetarianism, and through leading a life filled with kind intentions towards animals, other people, our community and our planet.

We meet Wednesday's at 4 in Lower Library 28, or outside when the weather is nice! Come join us to learn about what fun projects we have in the works, or just to meet lots of friendly, awesome people!

Pledge and participate in our Meatless Mondays movement and get a pair of bright green shoelaces for FREE! Sport them around campus however you please on Mondays to show your support!

Just in Time for ThanksLIVING!

Check out the Happy Thanks Living coloring zine. How adorable and perfect for veg kids and adults who are kids at heart!
