The "Pay it Forward Fund"

Perhaps you've had the good fortune to experience health and happiness and taste the sweet goodness of macrobiotics. Please share the love with those who could use a little help from friends. The Vegetarian Educational Institute wants to engage people who would otherwise not have an opportunity to learn about – and experience – the benefits of a macrobiotic/vegan lifestyle. Please contribute to our Scholarship Fund and know that your dollars will go a long way to help someone learn how to live a healthier lifestyle.
