Help the people of Kenya!

Greetings people! As most of us know, even if we do live on the same planet, not all of us get to have the same opportunities. Especially when it comes to health. People in Kenya have suffered greatly due to mass poverty and excessively harmful living conditions. To give you guys an idea, Canadians (people who are relatively privileged) spend about 4,676$ for health care per person per year, compared to Kenya who spends only about 84$ per person.

We, two students in high school, are given a project in which we have to do something that will help other people either locally or around the world within 2 weeks. 

After learning about the conditions in Kenya, we decided to help them out by raising some money. 

We did a little research and came across this website 

In english: http://www.freethechildren.com/international-programming/our-model/health/
In french: http://www.enfantsentraide.org/nosactions/internationaux/aav/sante/

Free the Children (or Enfant Entraide in french) is an organisation who’s number one goal is to help children around the world and it is 100% legitimate.

We are so blessed to have everything we wish that often times we forget that the third world countries even exist. Which is why we decided to start a little campaign in hopes that we can make people more aware.

Although, our goal of 200$ may seem very small, due to the little time we have to complete this project, it can seem like a huge blessing to the children in Kenya. 

If any of you are sceptic to know if we are trustworthy, you can ask us any further questions here:  http://asdfgh-annie.tumblr.com/ask

Even if you can’t donate, a simple reblog can help a lot!

The nonprofit WWF is running a fundraising campaign based around 17 animal emojis. Each digital creature has been designated to represent a real endangered species. So, the emoji turtle represents the green turtle species, which is threatened by the illegal trade of their meat, shells and eggs.

Texting for Dollars on the Trail

It’s been tried before, but on Thursday, the Federal Election Commission approved raising money by text message. In the past, text fundraising has been rejected because it would be difficult to meet the FEC’s 10 day reporting requirement (Source). OpenSecrets postulates that campaigns will follow the method used by charities and other organizations have used: texting a word or phrase to a number and making a contribution that will be added to the phone bill (Source). The FEC ruling would cap text contributions at $50 per month. So, expect to be receiving a text message if you have ever given your cell phone number to a political campaign, party, etc.

Daily Post #254: May 11th, 2015

My school is having an open mic night fundraiser to raise money so I can go back to the Mayo Clinic for my new health issues, Gastroparesis and Mast Cell Disease, in addition to my many other illnesses. We’re hoping to get answers about the new illnesses and get either a port or G tube. Since I wear red lipstick every day, the event is lipstick themed, and we’re advertising the fundraiser as “The Kiss Campaign!” If you want to support, post pictures with lipstick on or on your forehead (that’s how we are advertising at school!), spread the word about The Kiss Campaign and check out the Instagram page or stay tuned for information for a Go Fund Me! Thanks all for reading and thanks to my amazing friends for doing this for me, I hope you all have a lovely day 💋

Not sorry I won't or can't give to the cause.

Writing and covering politics, I pretty much end up on everyone’s campaign fundraising list during election season. No one ever asks, one day I simply just get a new email that sounds similar to every other email screaming about how if no one donates money now the Koch brothers will own us forever or just a little more dough will make a huge difference to the campaign and “don’t you want to see real change in (insert city/state/country)?”

Sorry guys, just because I covered the time you showed up to a march somewhere or said something mildly interesting that had more substance than a 20 second talking point once doesn’t mean I want to open my barren wallet and give you the dust, lint and crumpled business cards inside. Forget about money, I’d much rather eat tonight and your fundraising dinner with the bag boiled vegetables and bland chicken is worth less than the frozen pizza in the back of the ice cabinet at the liquor store.

With that in mind, here’s a piece that hits the nail on the head.

“If Democrats acted like Democrats, they might enjoy the same level of support from their own base…but instead, the people are presented with this eternally timid "Please Don’t Hurt Me” coalition, afraid of the word “Liberal,” and certainly addicted to the Wall Street/Defense/Petroleum money swelling their coffers. You ain’t broke, despite that barrage of emails to the contrary.

You support fracking while giving lip-service to climate change? You want Keystone XL approved, despite the fact that it will run the world’s dirtiest fuel through our breadbasket and over our main aquifer in a pipeline that is dead-bang guaranteed to leak? You endorse the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement? You’re satisfied with the barren lack of accounting meted to the Wall Street brigands who stole our future? You’re down with a third war in Iraq?

Wait, you don’t support all that? But you won’t stand against it, because you’re afraid of losing votes or campaign money?

My heroes.“

Elizabeth Warren's "growing clout could shift the caucus to the left"

Elizabeth Warren’s “growing clout could shift the caucus to the left”

The Hill has a post about Senator Elizabeth Warren’s “growing clout” that should make many a Progressive smile and nod. It may even send a thrill up some Democratic legs. Clout coming from the left can do that.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has emerged as one of the top fundraisersfor Senate Democratic candidates in the midterm election campaign, filling a void left by the absence of Hillary…

Virginia lawmakers face an important decision. It has nothing to do with the important business they’re unlikely to finish by the scheduled adjournment of the General Assembly on Saturday.

Anticipating that they will again work overtime, having failed to adopt a new state budget on time, delegates and senators, Republicans and Democrats must decide whether to resume an activity prohibited by law when the legislature is in session: campaign fundraising.

The decision comes down to procedure: Should the General Assembly recess or adjourn? To ordinary Virginians, it may be a distinction without a difference. To Virginia politicians, it’s a big deal — one complicated by the House-Senate shoving match over whether to weave into the $95 billion budget a permutation of Obamacare.

If the legislature recesses — in effect, takes a break and returns to Richmond when there’s a deal on which to vote — it would be lengthening the current session. In doing so, it would extend the ban on fundraising.
