Kickstart Your Heart: Four Indie Campaigns Worth Supporting


We all know that vegans are taking over the world. It seems like every day new and exciting business ventures are coming to life–and with our support, they’ll continue to grow and gain widespread success. Here at Vegan Cuts, we’re always on the lookout for compassionate people trying to make a difference by providing cruelty-free products and essential resources to consumers. That’s why we’re excited to share with you four indie campaigns worth supporting.

1. Feel Good Inc. Desserts


Feel Good Inc. Desserts launched with a passion to prove that vegan food can be enjoyed by everybody. Their vegan French macarons are to-do for–I mean, who could turn down a specialty pastry comprised of a crunchy outer shell filled with a soft almond meringue, and a decadent layer of cream or chocolate ganache sandwiched in between? The treats, which come in eight flavors, are gluten-free, soy-free, and refined sugar-free.

Funding this sweet project would help fully equip their bakery for organic, non-GMO, and gluten-free certification + allow them to increase production of not just macarons, but raw brownies and cakes too. Currently only available in southern California, the pastries could then be distributed nationwide. Learn more about their project and make a donation, here.

2. How to Eat a Rainbow: Magical Raw Vegan Recipes for Kids

Sisters-in-law Ellie and Sabrina Bedford teamed up to create a fully illustrated raw vegan cookbook, just for kids! Their inspiration for How to Eat a Rainbow: Magical Raw Vegan Recipes for Kids came about after discovering that most books for kids centered around unhealthy, sugary recipes. Plus, vegan cookbooks for kids are pretty much nonexistent.

Sabrina’s whimsical watercolor illustrations will appeal to children of all ages, while Ellie’s delicious recipes include fresh fruits and veggies and are free of refined sugars, but still interesting to kids. Your support will go directly to completing, printing, and distributing this gorgeous, filled with love, book.

3. Proatmeal

It’s been said a million times, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And Proatmeal, created by brothers Greg and Jeff Shuster, offers up some seriously powerful nutrition in convenient, on-the-go packets. Organic and gluten-free with no added sweeteners, simple ingredients combine for an impressive dose of protein, fiber, and complex carbs.

The initial launch flavors will include Peanut Butter, Banana & Chocolate, Blueberry Cheesecake, and Plain & Simple. The idea is to provide delicious, sustained energy to power folks through whatever adventures the day presents, whether it’s a long day at work or a 5K run on the trails. Support them here.

Currently, there is no online community for plant-based families, but that’s about to change. Run completely by like-minded volunteers, is a website and nonprofit organization that hopes to launch in late 2014. Created by and for vegan and vegetarian families, it will provide resources, support, recipes, product reviews, and ideas to help families through all stages of their plant-powered children’s lives. Funds will go toward web design and development, secure hosting, marketing, and fees needed to become a nonprofit organization.

Whether you live in a mixed diet household, are looking for advice on how to raise a vegan child, or need product recommendations and shopping resources, will bring together multiple writers and experts to create a comprehensive online resource for everyone. Show them some love and help support this much-needed online community.

And there you have it–four indie campaigns worth supporting. Won’t you help the vegan community continue to move onward and upward?
