Two Vancouver Co-operative Radio shows are planning to hold a vegan bake sale on the day before Valentine’s Day.

The bake sale, organized by Animal Voices and Drishti Point, will take place on February 13, from 4 to 7 p.m., at Unity Yoga Teahouse (1672 East 10th Avenue).

A portion of the proceeds will go to the Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association. They’ll also be fundraising for the Vancouver premiere of Speciesism: The Movie.

Speciesism: The Movie

Speciesism: The Movie investigates the bizarre world of factory farms.

Directed by Mark Devries, the documentary film will be screened on February 14 at 7 p.m. in the Fletcher Challenge Canada Theatre (Room 1900) at Harbour Centre, on Simon Fraser University’s Vancouver campus. Admission is by donation, and no one will be turned away for lack of money.

Both the bake sale and the film screening are part of Animal Voices and Drishti Point’s Cultivating Compassion series of events, which also includes a yoga workshop on February 15.

  1. Just a heads up — if you arrive early (6:30pm) to the film screening, and bring a bit of cash, you can vye for a chance to win one of 12 really cool vegan prizes (raffle). There will also be DVDs of Speciesism: The Movie on offer for $25.
