    statement

    Dear all,
    In the previous months, we have tried our best to promote veganism in Shanghai and had a lot of fun doing it. We especially remember those enthusiastic volunteers who have helped spreading the message of compassionate living. Without everyone who has lent a helping hand we wouldn’t be where we are today.

    However, right now, the team is facing challenges due to work commitment and change of life priorities. Therefore, we feel that we’re no longer able to devote the time needed for the work we did before. As Steve Job said, “Deciding what not to do is as important as deciding what to do.” Although we feel sad about this, considering the resources are extremely limited, we feel it is the right decision to make at this point.

    Though, before we start to limit our involvement, we plan to build a forum, so all the vegans/vegetarians and aspiring vegans/vegetarians can have a place to hang out, chat and organize your own potluck or dinner gathering. We will continue our online support and update the site when we have time. And we sincerely encourage you to continue a healthy and compassionate living, to lead as an example and to encourage the people around you to do the same. We also hope that you will continue to support all the vegan/vegetarian businesses. After all, their growth will help move the good cause further and make our world a better place.

    You are the one who will change the world. One meal at a time.

    亲爱的大家,
    在过去的一年半中,我们尽力在上海推广纯素主义,举行了很多快乐的活动。我们尤其记得那些热心的志愿者们,他们为传播慈悲怜悯的生活方式的信息贡献了很多力量。没有每一个人助我们一臂之力,我们也不会走到今天。

    不过,目前,我们团队面临着来自工作时间和生活目标改变的挑战。因此,我们感到,我们不再能奉献出足够的时间完成我们之前的工作。正如斯蒂夫乔所说,“决定什么不做,和决定什么该做一样重要。”虽然我们觉得很难过,但考虑到资源非常有限,我们觉得这是目前所能做的最正确的决定。

    在我们开始限量投入自己的精力之前,我们计划创建一个论坛,所有的纯素/素食者们,或者想成为纯素/素食者的人们可以有一个地方可以玩玩,聊天,组织你们自己的带餐聚会或者晚餐聚会。我们将继续我们的在线支持,并在有时间的时候更新网站。我们真诚地鼓励你们继续健康而有爱心的生活方式,为周围的人做好榜样,鼓励他们像你们这么做。我们也希望你们将继续支持所有的纯素/素食商业。毕竟,他们的成长将会帮助这个好的趋势进一步发展,让我们的世界变得更好。

    你就是那个可以改变世界的人。从每一餐开始。
