I just wanted to add that I made this because a friend of mine recently committed suicide because he was being bullied for being gay. I beg you to always reach out to someone before doing something drastic. Remember that there are people out there that love you without even knowing you. Use Trevor, they are wonderfully supportive and helpful or I’m sure I’m not alone in saying that my askbox is always open if you need help.
Goes without saying that these things should always be reblogged.
Watch it <3 It’s total lovely

A time to harvest
Anyono Mary set a good example to members of her Village Saving and Loan Association (VSLA) during their most recent savings cycle. With a disability in her legs, she has struggled to do anything on her own. However, as a member of the Invisible Children (IC) VSLA group Teke Akwo, she has been able to get her business moving. “I have paid people to dig and weed my crops for me, and then I have sold the produce as my small-scale business,” she said.
Similarly Omona Jennifer borrowed from the group to inject money into her oil business that she had started. She is able to support her family with what she gets from her small business.
There were many testimonies like these from members of different VSLA groups in Atanga, Amuru district upon completion of their second savings cycle. The groups saved for a period of eight months, during which time they were free to borrow loans from the group savings to start up small businesses, paying back the loans with interest.
For group Teke Akwo, where Mary and Jennifer belong, they were able to save $1703, earning 8.75% interest for each member. The women and men counted their money before folding it neatly and tucking it away in their pockets or attaching it to the clothes they were wearing in tied knots, ready to put it to good use.
To accrue savings is not a simple matter of numbers; traits like trustworthiness, determination and the spirit of togetherness are expected from the VSLA group members. There are currently 90 active groups receiving support and guidance from IC-trained facilitators. These hard working community members have learned that the best way to overcome the effects of war and hardship is to do it together.
“Violence against women within the First Nations community is not a subject that is generally openly talked about or acknowledged…Simply put, silence is literally killing us…We cannot afford to let the shame of the social problems in our community hold us back from changing for the better.” (Lynda Gray, 2011)
Live Aid. July 13, 1985. 27 years ago today.
A dual-venue concert (Wembley Stadium, London and JFK Stadium, Philadelphia) of historic proportions, oragnized by Bob Geldof to raise funds for famine relief in Ethiopia. It was one of the largest-scale satellite link-ups and television broadcasts of all time, and featured over 60 bands/solo performers. According to BBC, it raised approximately 30 million pounds worldwide for famine relief.
Especially memorable moments:
- a Led Zeppelin reunion (Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones) [with Phil Collins on drums] and a Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young reunion
- U2’s perfomance in which Bono lept off the stage to pull a girl from the audience (who later said he saved her life), sky-rocketing their world fame, and for the first time establishing them as a pre-eminent live group
- Queen’s 20-minute performance - it has since been considered one of the greatest live performances in the history of rock music
- and many, many others…
