So proud of my mother for doing her own research after I sent her that meme. A sign she hung in her car window.

Stay woke

Is this true?

Not only is it true, it gets worse. The Susan G Komen For The Cure Foundation has actually successfully sued “competing” charities, because (paraphrasing) their “message or branding was infringing.”
You read that correctly: they took money that people had donated to cure cancer, and hired attorneys with it, to sue ANOTHER group of people trying to find a cure for cancer, who, in turn, had to us their donated money to hire their own legal counsel to defend themselves.



Yeah signal boost because not enough people know about this and seriously FUCK SUSAN G. KOMEN THEY ARE THE ACTUAL WORST

Using Printmaking to Connect Art and Math, a project from Ms. Drummond

artededucator:

Hello all! My school added a third full-time art teacher this year, but did not increase our budget. Money will be tight so I’m trying to get supplies funded through donor’s choose! I want my students to be able to experience printmaking, but the supplies we have are in very bad shape (10+ years old, broken…) I do a unit with 6th grade where I connect art with geometry/shapes/types of symmetry/angles of rotation, so you would be supporting arts education, STEAM (and STEM) education, interdisciplinary learning, and project based learning.

This project is already half off thanks to the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, and until Friday the 29th, if you type in the code INSPIRE, your donation gets matched! I could have this funded with only a few small donations!

Please donate if you can, or if not, I’d appreciate some reblogs too!

"I’m not the girl your mother warns you about. I won’t kiss your best friend or break your heart. I won’t make you choose between what you love to do & me. I’m not cold. I’m not reckless. I will love you more than anything. I will kiss you when you cry. I will stand by your side until you decide otherwise."

This woman deserves a round of applause and a throne of gold. This is the most realistic & amazing thing for someone to say for this generation of students. I wasn’t able to go to college this year because my parents can’t afford to send me and I had every scholarship, grant, loan known to man and it still wouldn’t work. Finally someone gets it!

Can she be president? Because Im 30 deep now for not paying and building up some more because Im back in school. 

Elizabeth warren is my homegirl. Bless you beautiful women.
