As always, let’s get this Saturday Garbage Plate started with your weekly #NOM roundup!

Contests and giveaways! Fave Diets has one box of (organic, vegan, Kosher) Righteously Raw Chocolate bars up for grabs (Don’t enter, though, cause these babies are ALL MINE!); vegansaurus! is giving away a Lightlife gift basket (See: previous parentheses.); you can enter to win Sjaak’s new vegan candy bars at VegNews; and one lucky Vegan Appetite reader will snag a copy of The Natural Vegan Kitchen, courtesy of The Book Publishing Company.

Missouri residents: Help save Prop B, the Puppy Mill Cruelty Prevention Act! The MO state legislature is currently crafting legislation that would dismantle the measure, which was passed with 52% of the vote in November. Read more at missourifordogs.com, then take action. Sample letters are available from Missourians for the Protection of Dogs and Best Friends Animal Society.

Global residents: if you have any scratch to spare, please consider a donation to one of these lovely (vegan!) causes!

Vegan Protest Fuel is a brand spanking new project that was just launched this week. The good folks at VPF deliver vegan food to peaceful protesters defending their rights around the world. Their first campaign? Feeding “the tenacious heroes in Madison, WI, who are fighting to preserve their precious collective bargaining rights and for economic justice in their state against a radical conservative governor and assembly.”

Oh, how I love it when my veganism collides (happily!) with other social justice movements.

To learn more or make a donation, visit Vegan Protest Fuel’s Facebook page. Whether or not you’re able to donate, please like, share and spread the word!

Also, Team Vegan Vixens needs your support in the National Abortion Access Bowl-a-Thon! Held throughout the month of April,

The Bowl-a-Thon is a nationwide series of local events that allow community members (you!) to captain your own bowling team, participate in a kickass national event – and raise money to help women and girls pay for abortions they couldn’t otherwise afford.

Abortion Funds are local, grassroots groups that work tirelessly to help low-income and disadvantaged women who want an abortion and do not have enough money to pay for it. Abortion Funds help women pay for their abortions, help them buy bus or plane tickets, and even offer women a place to stay when they have to travel for an abortion. Abortion Funds make a difference in women’s lives…and you can join them!

Team Vegan Vixens is currently the top fundraiser for the Chicago Abortion Fund, which is #8 overall. Help Team Vegan (Vixens!) represent by pledging your support.
