World Vegan Day (Nov 1) is a well-established date for celebrating all things plant-based, cruelty-free and sustainable. We reckon it’s a great opportunity to reach out to the vegan-curious and wider public to encourage them to try going vegan in a supportive setting for 30 days.
Charity partners Vegan Easy (run by Animal Liberation Victoria) and Vegan Australia are excited to host the November Challenge, with a goal to reach out to hundreds of thousands of Australians, plus many more beyond our borders.
Informative and motivating daily emails from November 1st to November 30th with suggested recipes, expert information and helpful tips.
Access to a dedicated November Challenge online support group.
Option of one-on-one mentoring.
Valuable online resources, including the Vegan Easy series of videos with some of Australia’s best vegan cooks, creators and advocates.
The chance to win plenty of prizes!
Our 30 Day Vegan Easy Challenge is a free program designed to help participants from anywhere in the world learn all about the philosophy and practicalities of veganism. It includes a 30-day dietitian approved meal plan and of course, plenty of tasty recipes for your kitchen inspiration! Participants will also have the option to tap into the experience of our friendly team of volunteer mentors via a dedicated November Challenge Facebook support group, or opt for some one-on-one guidance.
In the lead up to November we’ll be giving away special gifts generously donated by various businesses including Australian Vegans, the Fussy Vegan app, Herbidoor, author Kathy Divine, Koala Eco, Larrykin Dog Treats, PBNutrition, Treat Yo Self, vEEF by Fenn Foods, Vegan Grocery Store, author and vegan chef Zacchary Bird and more! Anyone who signs up and registers before November 1, 2021 has the chance to win the giveaways through Vegan Easy and Vegan Australia’s socials. Those who complete the end-of-Challenge survey also have the opportunity to win some amazing prizes, including artisan chocolates from Nestar and personal/home care from Its Oil Good.

Excitingly, we have also teamed up with abillion – a free social impact app – to help increase the November Challenge’s positive influence. On abillion, you can review vegan dishes and products, share social posts with your community, and find vegan restaurants near you. Each review generates USD $1 that you can donate to one of their global impact partners, including Animal Liberation Victoria.
In conjunction with abillion’s 90/90 Challenge, November Vegan Easy Challengers can help abillion donate $1 million by 2022. All you have to do is share reviews on their app with the hashtag #veganeasychallenge. You can also follow the Vegan Easy account on abillion! In addition, they will be kindly giving away one x $50 Vegan Grocery Store voucher per week in November to Challengers who create 7 reviews or posts in a week, related to their Challenge experience, and using the hashtag #veganeasychallenge; the more reviews/posts shared in abillion the higher the chances of winning. Simply download the abillion app and join in the fun!😃
