Advocacy Rewards Program 2004-2005

Want to help save animals, the earth, and promote healthful living, all while having fun and maybe winning some prizes at the same time?

Then volunteer with Bay Area Vegetarians and make your efforts count in the Advocacy Rewards Program!

The intent of the Advocacy Rewards Program is to recognize and thank individuals for their contributions and support of vegan advocacy events within Bay Area Vegetarians and our local community. Every BAV advocacy event will have a point value attached to it. You earn points by participating in the activity. You earn even more points by organizing the activity.

Efforts = Points = Prizes!
