Help Olympia, Wash., get its own vegan store! »
Lesli Baker is a vegan from Olympia, Wash., who wants to open a vegan lifestyle shop there! She’s calling it Oly Vegan, and says it will be “the ONLY all vegan lifestyle shop between Seattle and Portland!” That is a big deal!
Lesli is fundraising for Oly Vegan through IndieGoGo right now, and of the $4,000 she needs, she has raised $910. Not enough! And it expires on Sunday, Nov. 20, less than two weeks from today!
According to Lesli, Oly Vegan “will carry delicious vegan gourmet chocolate truffles and marshmallow treats and snacks, packaged food items, clothing, handbags and shoes, t-shirts, body care products (and vegan makeup for the ladies!) book totes and laptop bags, ceramics, glassware and more with a vegan theme. We also plan to host events and charity fundraisers, interesting classes and in-stores. This will be a destination store that does more than sell cool t-shirts to its customers, but also sincerely tries to give back to its community.”
Those are really admirable goals, you guys. Let’s help Lesli out, and get Olympia a vegan store! Every town deserves one!
