The Animal Rescue Site is having trouble getting enough people to click on it daily so they can meet their quota of getting FREE FOOD donated every day to abused and neglected animals in their shelters.
It takes less than a minute (only about 15 seconds actually) to go to their site and click on the purple box titled, ‘Click Here to Give - it’s FREE!’. Every click gives about .6 bowls of food to sheltered dogs. You can also click daily!
Keep in mind that this does not cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate food to abandoned/neglected animals in exchange for advertising. [via.]
Go to the website here.<~~ please click :)
doesn’t cost you a cent, just a click.
This is Micah. He needs a new home. I’m getting kicked out of my house so I need someone to adopt my cat. Otherwise he won’t have a home at all.
He just turned nine. He’s fixed, declawed, and litter trained. Micah is shy and defensive when he first meets someone, but he’s back to his normal self after about a week. Then it’s all love and cuddles from him! He’s very affectionate once he warms up to someone. He likes snuggling up in bed and being held like a teddy bear.
We’re in the Albuquerque area. I’d be willing to take him anywhere in New Mexico. If you’re interested in adopting him, please message me. Even if you can’t adopt a cat, please reblog so someone in the state can see this and help us!
Also photographic proof that he is the most lovey cat.
Please please PLEASE, everyone! I’m running out of time!
But, I feel there is something many are not realising, and it is important to know this. Megaupload has started to use a special encryption, meaning they cannot see what you are uploading and allowing others to download. This means that they cannot be held accountable for any illegal activity that goes on on the site. Which means if the FBI focus on Megaupload, the consequences will fall on you. Megaupload has made itself prosecutable, because under their terms and conditions, all liability now goes to the users. Which means if the FBI chooses to go in search of those uploading illegal content, or downloading illegal content, they cannot prosecute the site or owners. There is only one person they can prosecute, and that is the user. And I feel that users, tumblr especially, will not realise that, and continue on using it as they did. So if you use it as you did, you now run a much higher risk of being caught. And I thought you should know that. Be careful.
There is a petition on Whitehouse.gov that will restrict congressmen and senators salaries to $75,000 a year for the next THREE YEARS to pay off the deficit! It needs 20,919 signatures, And it’s still under 5,000

I’ll just quote Teen Voices’ website (http://www.teenvoices.com/:Teen Voices need your help. Because of a recent decrease in funding, we’re at a crisis. We must raise $300,000 by August 1. Yes, it’s that bad.“So what?” You say. “Why should I care? It’s just a nonprofit in Boston.”
For nearly 25 years, girls and young women in Boston and beyond have counted on Teen Voices to provide a positive, girl-friendly space to grow as writers and leaders. We are not going down without a fight.
You know us, and you know our work—our girl-generated magazine is the only publication of its kind. Thousands of girls around the globe count on Teen Voices to publish their work and offer honest, positive stories that address real issues in their lives.
The good news is our magazine and our afterschool program are stronger than ever. We’ve produced two excellent issues in the past year and over 225 online articles—including interviews with inspiring girls in action and powerful leading ladies like Donna Brazile, Jennifer Buffett, and Maria Hinojosa. We consistently have a waiting list for our afterschool and summer journalism program, and our Boston-based teens consistently show growth in perseverance, social efficacy, and acceptance of others.
With a strong and dedicated staff and an army of passionate teens and volunteers, we are poised to take Teen Voices to the next level in 2013, reaching many more girls worldwide. We have a vision to increase our web traffic tenfold and become the go-to place for smart girl media. We have plans—and even a grant!—to make teenvoices.com an interactive, smartphone-friendly forum for girls to amplify their voices.
It’s all within reach.
But right now, we need funds to get around this challenging corner and move our organization to a stronger future. With your help, Teen Voices can partner and transform to amplify the voices of girls. Whether you can afford $5, $50 or $5,000, every donation brings us closer.
You can send a safe and secure contribution through PayPal:
Or mail a check to:
80 Summer St, Suite 400
Boston MA 02110
We need your donations by August 1!
Please forward this message to every person you know who believes that girls can change the world. And thank you for investing in the power of teen girls’ voices!

No, it’s not. I would know. I interned there. It was my first internship and in fact my first experience in any sort of feminist institution. I read just about every issue of Teen Voices—and that’s a lot of magazines—because I had to organize the archives. And those magazines were what eventually led to this blog.
Teen Voices was not “a feminist magazine”. It was a magazine by (primarily) young WOC in Boston during an after-school mentoring program. These girls were awesome. They were funny, kind, and the magazines they created cast light on issues that—if you have been reading this blog, you know—are invisible in popular media. Everything from trans* issues, suicide, surviving assault, foster family life, great restaurants run by women in Boston, interviews with CIBO MATTO (YES THE CIBO MATTO THAT DID “Know your Chicken” and “Birthday Cake”, it was in one of the old magazines, I told you Teen Voices is badass!!!1). At the back of the magazines was this awesome section where they took an advertisement from TV or a magazine and described in articulate terms just how it was objectifying a woman’s body or using sex to sell a product. Bam.
That was my first internship, and it was years ago, but I still have a couple of magazines on my shelf. They are evergreen. They’re filled with art people sent in, letters, advice, and positivity. There is no end of positivity in this awesome magazine.
TEEN VOICES NEEDS TO STAY ALIVE. Teen Voices’ slogan was “because you’re more than a pretty face” and now it’s “changing the world for girls through media” which fits what they do better.
I’m sounding like an infomercial now, but don’t take my word for it. Go to teenvoices.com right now, you’ll see what’s awesome about them. They recently interviewed a member of the Olympic Swimming Team in a great article. They have a review about a movie focusing on sexual assault in the military up right now, worth a look. Poetry, fiction, music reviews, art, photography—all by teen girls. You can read their magazine, which goes out to learning centers, schools, and many other institutions, online or in print if you donate for a subscription.
I KNOW MY FOLLOWERS ARE PROBABLY NOT RICH. BUT PLEASE, REBLOG THIS AND DONATE WHAT YOU CAN. TEEN VOICES IS NEEDED, NOT JUST IN BOSTON, BUT NONPROFITS LIKE THIS SHOULD EXIST EVERYWHERE FOR GIRLS ALL OVER THE PLACE. MAYBE GET YOUR EMPLOYER TO MATCH A DONATION WITH YOU. THIS IS A NONPROFIT, SO YOU CAN DEDUCT ANY DONATION ON YOUR TAX RETURN. THIS LINK I’M POSTING GOES TO THE ORIGINAL ARTICLE WITH A PAYPAL LINK.
Thank you for reading this far. We now return to your scheduled programming where I call mean people bad words.
I’m going to ask you guys to please signal boost (and donate if you can!)
I got my start with Teen Voices both in terms of getting my art published and finding a voice as a WoC. I’ve still got my old issues.
Teen Voices is an excellent formative influence for me, and it’ll be a shame if future generations aren’t able to have something so excellent in their lives!
Hey guys! Today is the last day to vote for Gunnerkrigg Court in this ComicMix contest, and since Tom Siddell is a really nice and talented dude who just made this extremely well-done comic his fulltime job, he could really use the money (which he’s planning on donating anyway) and the exposure this victory would get him. Do your part and help out because it will make me like you a lot, and if you haven’t already, you should actually read this comic from the start - it doesn’t take too long and both the art and plot get exponentially better with time.
