May 05 02:00 2022

May 4, 2022 – The founder of the Vegan Vigilante recipe blog announced that she’s launched a fundraiser for suicide awareness, sponsored by the American Foundation for Suicide Awareness. Vegan Vigilante is organizing a walk to be held in Orange Co., CA on Oct. 1, 2022 to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP).

A Facebook page has been established where individuals can make a donation, even if they are unable to participate in the event. All donations are 100 percent tax deductible and will benefit the AFSP as part of its Out of the Darkness Walk program. Funds will be used for research, education, advocacy, and to support those affected by suicide.

The AFSP holds its signature fundraising walks, campus walks at colleges and high schools across the nation, and its flagship fundraising event, an endurance challenge called The Overnight. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) lists suicide as the 12th leading cause of death in the U.S. The COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated mental health problems, with an estimated 1.20 million suicide attempts in 2020.

The founder of the Vegan Vigilante blog is a registered nurse with more than 21 years of experience in healthcare. She launched the blog to satisfy a love of animals and provide people with healthy and simple vegan recipes that are delicious and highly nutritious. The recipes are ethical, sustainable and many have the added advantage of being gluten free.

Individuals will find dishes for every meal of the day. Vegan Vigilante features a wide range of foods encompassing fritters, tea biscuits and salsas to soups, shepherd’s pie, one-pot meals, and guilt free desserts. Celebrating holidays in a vegan way is no problem with the recipes provided.

The Vegan Vigilante fundraising walk in Orange Co., CA on Oct. 1, 2022, provides individuals with the opportunity to assist those touched by suicide. The blog’s Out of the Darkness Walk to benefit the AFSP enables individuals to make a monetary donation that’s 100 percent tax deductible, even if they can’t physically participate in the walk. The AFSP works to prevent suicide and bring hope to those affected by suicide.
