VegFest Volunteers Needed

For the past 15 years, the energy and dedication of hundreds of volunteers have made VegMichigan’s VegFest the amazing event it is today.  Our volunteers are instrumental to our success by providing hands-on assistance by donating their time and skills on the day of the event.  If you would like to volunteer at VegFest on Sunday, April 13th, we have lots of volunteer positions in various areas.  It’s fun and rewarding to be part of a volunteer team that promotes the vegan lifestyle!
As a volunteer, you will be allowed free entry to the event; ample time away from your post to enjoy all that VegFest has to offer (lectures, food, exhibits, etc.); and a “Thank You” gift at the end of your shift.
If you would like to be a volunteer at this year’s event, simply e-mail our Volunteer Coordinator, Susan Kline, at  and you will be contacted with more details.

Sponsor an Animal this Holiday Season


It’s the most wonderful time of year! Help those who are unable to help themselves. Give the gift of life for the holidays by sponsoring an animal. These three well established charities spend over 80% on their cause, not overhead, salaries, mailers, etc.


cows_meet_animals_2SASHA Farm is the midwest’s largest farm animal sanctuary. At our shelter, not only do we provide food and water, veterinary care and a roof over their heads, we also give the animal residents affection, social interaction with others of their own species, and a sense of security.

At SASHA Farm, they provide life long care for almost 300 farmed animals. This is a big job, and you can help in a big way! Your sponsorship will help provide food, veterinary care and a safe permanent home for the animal of your choosing and their friends.

Each animal has a sad story to tell of their lives before arriving at SASHA Farm. Browse through the animal profiles to get to know a few of our residents better and see how their lives have changed for the better since arriving at the sanctuary.

Animal sponsorships start at just $30. When one touches your heart, you can sponsor that animal here. You may also print that page and send your payment to PO Box 222, Manchester, MI 48158. Of course, not all the animal residents can be listed online, so you can also choose a species and let us select the individual most in need of a sponsor. You will receive a wonderful sponsor package including a certificate, letter, and photo within about two weeks.
