Today we are excited to launch a new initiative! With the help of @MileyCyrus (make sure you turn that on!) our aim is to spread the word that despite the new ban on trophy hunting, bears in British Columbia are still being hunted via a loophole that allows hunters to claim them as food. Head to SAVEBCBEARS.ORG where you can get involved by signing a petition, making a donation, and recording your very own version of this song to share via social media. The combined pressure of hunting, habitat fragmentation, urbanization and other human-caused disturbance has already removed grizzly bears from considerable portions of their traditional habitat in B.C. Join the #SAVEBCBEARS movement as we continue to fight until we can finally say that grizzly bears in B.C. will no longer be hunted!!!
“These specific texts apply to the world that my students are living in, because they encompass aspects of breaking stereotypes, overcoming racism, and celebrating diversity. My students will use these texts to bridge their learning to real-life application and pique interest in past and current events.”- @donorschoose teacher and #HappyHippieHero Mrs. Davis. Thanks to the generosity of our #HappyHippie community, Mrs. Davis was able to provide her Michigan high schoolers with books reflecting their life experiences, inspiring them to get involved in their school, family and community. Stay tuned for more impact highlights from our #HopefulHippies campaign in the coming weeks! #FBF#BackToSchool#HHImpact
Our hearts and thoughts go out to everyone affected by the earthquake this week in Mexico, and by the many recent natural disasters occurring worldwide #Repost@nytimes
The death toll from the powerful earthquake that struck Mexico yesterday afternoon jumped to 217, government officials said today, as searchers worked desperately to find survivors in the ruins of collapsed structures. The quake toppled dozens of buildings and led to the deaths of 21 children in a school that collapsed in #MexicoCity. “The priority at this moment is to keep rescuing people who are still trapped and to give medical attention to the injured people,” Mexico’s president, Enrique Peña Nieto, said last night. The devastating temblor sent people fleeing into the streets and came just 2 weeks after another earthquake centered off Mexico’s southern coast rattled the capital. It also happened on the 32nd anniversary of a 1985 quake that killed as many as 10,000 people and flattened 400 buildings in Mexico City. The photographer @adrianazehbrauskas took this photo last night in Mexico City.
I personally do not believe that same sex marriage should come down to a vote. I believe it's a HUMAN RIGHT to be able to marry the person you love regardless of gender. To all the Australians that care about equality and human rights please say YES to same sex marriage. Let's not be silly about this. Vote YES for same sex marriage in Australia.
