The Vegan Zombie is raising money for fellow vegan/vegan zombie actor (!) Corey Welling, who is desperately in need of a double lung transplant to live (he has Cystic Fibrosis).
If you have some extra money burning a hole in your richie rich pockets, or even if it might be a difficult to give away a little of what the small amount you have, maybe you can throw some money their way? It sucks, some of us are just dealt shittier health decks in life, and now is not a good time to be an American with a shitty health deck (hopefully soon it will be better!), so please help a vegan in need, if you can!!
From the ChipIn site:
Hey Gang! We normally don’t like asking for favors, but this is a huge deal to us. Corey, is one of our closest friends and he needs our help. He is one of the most compassionate people I’ve ever met, and he has introduced me to the owners of several animal sanctuaries. Let me fill you in on what’s going on…Corey has Cystic Fibrosis (CF), a lung disease. He was diagnosed at 6 months old and his life expectancy was only 8 years. Throughout the years, advances in technology and medicine have made it possible for people like Corey to beat the odds, and make it a lot further in life. He is now 27 years old…However, he was told by his doctors five months ago that he is now at the end stage of his disease. He needs a double lung transplant in order to live. He will be having his transplant in NYC. Insurance will cover some, but not all of the costs. The estimated cost for everything is around $100,000.Our goal is to try to ease the financial pressure for Corey and his family once the operation takes place. It would mean the world to Chris and I if you can help us raise this money! His family put together a benefit for him in November, and I would love to hand them a check from The Vegan Zombie for $20,000!!!
Cooking with the Vegan Zombie: pizza rolls! I just watched this whole 10-minute video even though I’m like not cooking or anything and it was pretty entertaining. For one, I think I found my date to the veggie prom! But also, I feel like I’ve never wanted something more than I want a pizza roll right now at this minute. Right? I’m kind of upset now. How come I never have any pizza rolls! LIFE BLOWS.
Oh wait so how do you guys pronounce Daiya? He uses the new pepper jack flavor in the recipe and he pronounces it like “day-ya.” Is that right? I always say it like “die-ya” but I’m notorious for mispronouncing things. It actually makes up 40 percent of my charm. The other 60 percent is misspellings and malapropisms!
Update: Laura has some thoughts on this post: “I asked the Daiya people and it’s pronounced “day-ya”, so your charm percentage is still on track. Also, Jonas makes pizza rolls semi-professionally, AND THEN HE DEEP FRIES THEM. They are ridiculous. We once had a party almost turn into a riot when he ran out of rolls before guests (MARK SHRAYBER) ate their (HIS) fill. Cons: we lost a lot of good friends that night. Pros: now we know who our real friends are; dozens of people were saved from adult-onset diabetes.”
