Vegan Score Friends!
You may have seen a post on this very blog about the Hip Hop Green Dinners put on by local Seattle vegan and founder of Hip Hop is Green, Keith Tucker. Or maybe you remember reading about Kieth’s work to produce a radical documentary, called Pursuit of a Green Planet, about the connections between veganism, the health of the planet, and the health of youth in the hip hop community, which is still in the works. Or maybe you have never heard of any of this before, but you are intrigued! This week, Keith and Hip Hop is Green are launching their campaign to bring these ideas on a national tour: 10th Element of Hip Hop Health & Wellness Tour! Can you tell that I’m excited?
If you support the idea that veganism and health should be for everybody in every community, then you should support Hip Hop is Green and this amazing tour! The tour will bring vegan meals to youth along with a program of vegan Hip Hop artists, health professionals, chefs, authors, activists, fitness experts, and more. The folks involved with these events are some of the best people I’ve encountered – full of kindness, hope, and total dedication to community. They can’t pull off this tour without our support, funding, and sharing their story. Have a look at the site, watch the video, and then hopefully put a little dough into this amazing endeavor! They have the vision, let’s support Seattle’s rad vegans doing rad things for the world!
There are also some totally effing incredibly unique perks to helping fund this tour, like a 30 minute Skype call with Stic of Dead Prez and Afya Ibomu while making a smoothie! Or get some of Seattle-based, Chef Ariella‘s magical healthy donuts made with vegan Meyer Lemon curd folded into vanilla cake batter baked to fluffy perfection with dried mango pieces and sprinkled with powdered sugar. The perks are just a side reason to support this cool tour!
