Help us create a free vegan worldwide events directory available as an mobile phone app and a website.

A Final Push for Additional Features!

We have less than two days left in our KickStarter! While our app goal has been met, we would love to raise more funds to support additional app features. If we are able to raise $3,200, we are confident we'll be able to add the following:

- A Google Location Map
- The Ability to Filter Events by Distance, Time, Categories and Location
- A Share with Friends Capability
- An Android Platform

If you haven't contributed yet, please consider doing so to help us add on these features.

New Rewards Level!

We've just added a $200 rewards level! Donate $200 or more, and you will receive a designer vegan handbag from Gunas. We have one Sweetheart, one Neon and one Henry bag to giveaway with a choice priority given on a first-come basis. If you donate between $100-199, you'll receive two signed copies of the new hit film Vegucated! Vegucated is a documentary that follows three meat- and cheese-loving New Yorkers from different backgrounds who, for six weeks, adopt a vegan diet and a whole new way of thinking about food.

About the Vegan Events App
Want to know about vegan events happening in your area? What if all of your city’s vegan festivals, food tours, Meetup outings, vegan potlucks and more were listed in one convenient place? WORLDWIDE!!!

We believe that having a centralized list of vegan events available as a mobile app AND a website directory, will help people become and stay vegan.

The mobile app will be FREE and allow the user to search events by city and/or event date. Event details as well as optional comments and rankings will be available. Events can easily be submitted to the directory from the mobile app.

The website will also serve as a resource for in-depth event information. Both the app and the website will allow users to share the event on social media sites.

The App’s Impact
Our Vegan App is intended to help veganism become mainstream. We find that many vegans and vegetarians lack the social support and information needed to truly thrive on the lifestyle and advocate it to others. Did you feel alone when you first became vegan? Vegan events—potlucks, VegFests, Meetups etc.—help significantly to create a supportive vegan community. We hope that no vegan ever has to feel like they are "the only vegan they know."

We need to do everything we can to promote these events and grow the vegan community.

Our Vegan App will serve as a tool where vegans can connect with other vegans through these events.

We are so excited to create this app and see how it impacts people’s lives.

What We Need
We need at least $2,000 to get this project off the ground. Anything we raise over $2,000 will help us include additional features.  Please give what you can.
