Support Our Crowdfunding Campaign To #CreateAVegan
One year ago, Veganuary crowdfunded almost £30,000 to place 2,500 adverts inside tube carriages on the London Underground. Now, we’re doing it again but this time we’re going global!
The adverts will be placed on the Boston Subway (USA), the Sydney Light Railway (Australia), the Manchester Metrolink (UK) as well as on the London Underground.

We’re keeping the new designs under our non-woolly hat for now, but rest assured they’ll be equally bright and striking and impossible to ignore!
One Londoner affected by last year’s adverts was Stockwell resident James Kelsall who saw the poster featuring Little Eric. ‘I had always been vegetarian,’ he says, ‘because the idea of eating and killing animals was abhorrent to me but I viewed other animal products as relatively harmless by-products.’ When he saw the poster, James realised that this was not the case, and he signed up to take part in Veganuary. Like two-thirds of those who took part in January 2017, he has remained vegan since.
Says Veganuary co-founder, Jane Land: ‘Last year, Veganuary’s supporters helped to fund the biggest vegan campaign ever promoted on the London Underground. And with more than 10,000 Londoners registering to go vegan for the month, we know it was a huge success. Now, we want to do it all again, but bigger and bolder than before. We want to take our message to three continents, and help create vegans the world over. And we are asking compassionate people to donate whatever they can afford to help us do that.’
The international advertising campaign comes with a hefty price tag of £82,000 and we’re inviting supporters to give what they can and to take full advantage of the perks on offer, including signed photos of Harry Potter actor Evanna Lynch, and delicious food hampers by Veganuary sponsors Pulsin, Tideford, and Fry’s.
The crowdfunder campaign runs until 16 November. Please sponsor a poster today:
The adverts will be in place inside tube and tram carriages from 18th December until early January.
We’re delighted to see global coverage of Veganuary and local too. From our new international partnership to local campaigns in everywhere across the UK from Sheffield to Saundersfoot and Shrewsbury, London to Birmingham, we hope to continue to grow!
