Veebles?? What’s a Veebles? Where did that come from?
Veebles is derived from Vegan Business Listings, a name we originally liked, but then decided was far too boring for an adventure as exciting as this one is. We love our name Veebles and we hope you like it too.
What’s this “Be A Hero” stuff all about?
To be a hero means going beyond simply liking something and hoping it will happen. Small, medium and large donations from Veebles businesses and Veebles users fund two very important ongoing projects:
“Support a Nonprofit” awards
Nonprofits that list with Veebles are automatically included in the selection process to receive an award. When we launch a new “Support a Nonprofit” campaign, you’ll hear more through email notifications (if subscribed) and announcements on social media. (Hint: mark your social media to “see first” in your newsfeed so you don’t miss out on anything).
“No Vegan Left Behind”
We’ve deliberately made our business membership fee super low so we can include as many vegan-owned businesses as possible. Even with that, for qualifying brand new business owners, we have a scholarship fund available for an introductory membership. This is partially funded through donations.
We also make it possible for registered 501(c)(3) vegan and animal awareness nonprofits to list with Veebles at no charge, forever.
Donations to our “No Vegan Left Behind” project may also be directed towards the considerable expenses (marketing and advertising, maintaining an outreach staff) that drive our effort. We want every vegan who owns a business to learn about us and benefit from our support. We want to reach every vegan consumer as well, to make sure this valuable tool is available free of charge.
I love the Veebles concept and I sometimes have a little extra time. I want to support your growth and success. How can I do that?
What is the “Featured Listing of the Week” on your home page all about?
