Vegansaurus giveaway: Harmony Valley deliciousness! ALSO IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!!! »
Why do we love free shit so much? Who knows, it’s in our stupid human DNA. Free is good and free veggie burgers are BETTER! If I know one thing to be true, it is that. Now where’s Oprah? She’s got to hear this, for real.
Harmony Valley makes damn fine burger, sausage, and hummus in a bag and you want to eat it all. Seriously, I first tried this stuff at Expo West and was blown away. And by blown away, I mean I returned to the sample counter throughout the day in various forms of disguise. I was the following characters: Myself; myself with a fake mustache; myself with a fake beard; myself in a hat; a young Goldie Hawn (no costume necessary); and myself as a young child (this one required REAL MAGIC/a pair of knee pads). The point is, this stuff is good and you want it. FOR FREE
For a chance to win the burger, sausage, and BRAND NEW hummus mix, tell me what song you’d most like to sing to me (seductively? eh?) on my birthday. Alternately, your favorite flavor of birthday cake. THIS IS A GOOD QUESTION BECAUSE TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY. I was born! You’re welcome!
ALSO: Triple Bonus Mega Prize in addition to this giveaway and me being born: They’ve got a contest going on over at Harmony Valley right now for awesome awesome awesome prizes! Go enter!

Le Canot Rouge Giveaway! WIN SOME AWESOME SHIT RIGHT NOW! »
Le Canot Rouge is the super-fucking-cutest stationery ever, featuring designed and created by a lovely vegan lady named Laura (CAN I GET A WHAT-WHAT FOR HOT VEGANS NAMED LAURA??). It launched at the National Stationery Show in May, where it was really well received, and the store known for everything insanely adorable and adorably insane, Anthropologie, picked it up. Go on vegan stationery company making it happen with the bigwigs!
Laura describes her designs thusly:
The stationery features charming animals of the woods that I’ve anthropomorphized-–not wearing clothes or anything, ‘cause that would just be silly, but doing things like riding a bicycle, carrying an umbrella, or using a rescue ring. The intention is to, in a gentle, quirky way, allow people to realize that animals have their own lives, and should have their freedom, choices and rights without us humans bestowing these upon them at our choosing (or not).
So as not to damage the very ideas I want to support, Le Canot Rouge prints exclusively on process-chlorine-free, Forest Stewardship Council-certified, 100 percent post-consumer recycled-fibre paper because the medium IS the message. The paper manufacturer purchases enough Green-e certified Renewable Energy Certificates to match 100 percent of the electricity used in its operations.
And the reason for launching Le Canot Rouge? So I can help make a change: 10 percent of Le Canot Rouge’s gross sales (rather than some watered-down ‘net’ business) is donated to animal welfare causes.
So cute and awesome and responsible and wonderful! I want to make out with that other Laura. I’ll tape it and it’ll be like watching Inception but the porn version. BOOM CHICKA WOW WOW (how do you type that?).
ANYWAY, your Vegansaurus and Le Canot Rouge is giving away a complete set of the animals to one lucky winner. VERY AWESOME.

1) fan their page on Facebook (the website will be up and running soon! but not yet!) AND THEN:
