The Great Salt Lake is an amazing place! But some people in Utah have come up with a plan to divert one of its life blood rivers... If that happens, the Great Salt Lake might not be so great. Click the link on my bio if you want to find out more. #adventurehydro#getactive#dosomething#itsyourworld
We all should look at each other positively and not poke at everyone's imperfection. Being part of ARK #actsofrandomkindness and #dosomething .org show ways to compliment each other even if we may not know each. Featuring:@kacieelor 09/6/2017. Note:OCT 3 "Mean Girls" day.
"The emotional and societal costs of human trafficking are enormous; our best hope is to prevent it from happening in the first place." ~ Joy Smith Foundation | In 9 days I will ride my bike 25km to raise awareness and support for the Joy Smith Foundation. They are passionate about educating young people about the signs and dangers of human trafficking in Canada. Please help support their efforts by clicking the link in my bio. Also take time to educate yourself by visiting the Joy Smith Foundation website and the many resources available there! Thanks for your support! #wecanmakeadifference#ride17#dosomething#justice#joysmithfoundation#rideforrefuge#thisiswhyiride

louis brandeis said, "you can have wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, or democracy. but you cannot have both." the koch brothers and other special interest conservative groups have literally paid the republicans to repeal ACA (obamacare) and craft legislation that is undemocratic, amoral, and recklessly destructive to the lives of nearly every american and especially so for the most vulnerable citizens in the united states.
👏🏻call👏🏼all👏🏽senators👏🏾today👏🏿 (link in bio for all senators numbers)
you must cultivate resistance. your government representatives will not do it on their own. the vast majority are political cowards. your voice and will is needed in order to protect our human right to healthcare and our democratic process. do not let plutocracy and greedy kleptocrats destroy and trample on our inalienable rights. call ALL senators and tell them to vote no on the graham-cassidy amendment.
#ThrowbackThursday We want to give a shoutout to Carrie & Blake from the Rotary Club of Des Moines/Normandy Park, WA for joining our team on a Search & Rescue a few weeks ago. Thank you for giving of your time and services to help Seattle’s homeless!
I am appalled and disgusted. #boycott#tortureisnotart @guggenheim @nytimes #dosomething#takeaction#thisisunacceptable#boycottguggenheim#actionnotapathy
Per The NY Times: "The couple’s work at the Guggenheim is one of their less radical pieces. The seven-minute video shows four pairs of American pit bulls tethered to eight wooden treadmills. The camera closes in on the animals as they face each other, running at high speed. The dogs are prevented from touching one another, a frustrating experience for animals trained to fight. The dogs get wearier and wearier, their muscles more and more prominent, and their mouths increasingly salivate.
The piece was first shown with the actual dogs appearing before an audience at the Today Museum in Beijing in 2003." #repost @rebeccacorry
I keep getting tagged in this, so I'll comment by saying, while this is fucking appalling, it's not surprising at all to me. Dogfighting is condoned all over the world and as far as I'm concerned it's condoned here too. Our society rewards known fighters and lets most of them go with a slap on the wrist IF a tip is even investigated. There aren't nearly enough tip lines or resources available for people to call and even if there was, there aren't enough people on staff in most counties and cities to investigate it. All while many city and county officials are making 6 figures, getting paid vacations and have amazing health benefits. This includes shelter heads who support "vicious dog" ordinances. Ending the horrors of dogfighting is not a priority in America and expecting the HSUS tip line to solve the epidemic is laughable. Not because they aren't capable but simply because it's not their primary function to end dogfighting and it's unfair to expect them to. Dogfighting is everyones problem and funding on federal, state and local levels should be happening to help end it. Yet our society chooses to ignore it and kills the majority of dogs who are lucky enough to even get out alive. We don't stop there though, we then further victimize the fucking victims by labeling them as the "dangerous." We are no better than the pieces of shit in this so called "art" and that's a fact.
"BUY ONE GET ONE FREE"
and all profits go toward feeding people @brackenskitchen.
It doesn't get any better than that. Oh wait, actually it does, the buy one get one free is at the one and only @thedirtycookieoc.
If you haven't had one of their chocolate chip cookie shots there's no better time than now, and did we say you get two of them for the price of one.
Got a text from one of my nurses expressing how much excitement she felt about finally being in California! "3 hours left until I'll be at the campground. I'm crazy excited. Giddy too. Haha. I think I teared up when my GPS welcomed me to California." I love when my nurses are excited to start their assignment! Makes my job so much more rewarding to know that I've had a party in making sometimes dream a reality!
