#vkidsdoittoo – Make Way For Cuteness

veganandahalf: Pure joy. ♥ ♥ ♥

Happy Monday! To my American readers, happy holiday! And to the rest of the world, hello, and have I got a way to kickstart your work week right!

#vkidsdoittoo is a “hashtag campaign” I started last month, as a way to show the world that vegan families get to do all the same fun, fantastic, and yummy stuff as non-vegan families. Because vegan kids are normal kids!

But what’s neat is how it’s become something else as well – a place for vegan families to connect with one another, to find solidarity and comfort, and for vegan kids (wo might not know any other vegan kids in real life) to find community. As Instagrammer sholkogan said, “the best part is showing my kids this feed! i hear lots of “just like me!” and “just like us!”"

And that just makes me so happy. So please, keep participating, keep sharing, tag your friends and invite them to join, tweet about it, get the word out, and let’s keep this thing going and growing!

A few choice pics from the past few weeks:

  • Jo

    My kid is only 10 months (that’s her, really really enjoying her corn), so I especially love seeing the older kids and toddlers having gorgeous, thriving, vegan childhoods. Inspiring!

  • Rachel in Veganland

    I’m LOVING this hashtag, Sayward. I spent a good 45 minutes looking through all of the pics on Insta after your last post. Looks like I’ve got some catching up to do!

    Aw, thank you so much for sharing Jo! She is adorable with her corn, I seriously LOVE that pic! And I know what you mean, I also love seeing all the other (and older) thriving vegan kiddos. ♥

    YAY! Thank you Rachel, I’m so glad you (and others!) are enjoying it as much as I am! =D

    It’s great, the stewardship you’re doing with this campaign! We are so enjoying it as a family.

  • Melissa

    Might I suggest the “Vegan Kids Survival Guide”?

  • http://bonzaiaphrodite.com/ Sayward Rebhal

    I wish! And YES, it’s definitely on the list of potential projects for post-graduate school . . . ;-)

    Thank you, that’s so great to hear!

  • Rebecca Carnes

    Dear Lord, someone evil is trying to spoil #vkidsdoittoo with dead bird images. I hope there’s a way to let Instagram know about it and stop them :/

  • http://bonzaiaphrodite.com/ Sayward Rebhal

    Thanks so much for alerting me, Minna. They are tagging with all sorts of vegan hashtags so it’s not just #vkidsdoittoo. So sad. I reported the issue to Instagram and I hope they’ll remove them. I don’t think it’s possible to block somebody from a hashtag, unfortunately.
