i have been seeing a lot of different links for different places to donate for bail and legal fees, but i haven’t been able to find anything on whether or not the funds have actually been going towards helping out the people of ferguson so
if you know of any more please add and spread them and if in doubt remember to google first
Classes have been canceled for Monday.
Senator Nasheed has started a petition to Appoint a Special Prosecutor to Investigate the Murder of Michael Brown the county prosecutor, Bob McCulloch, has demonstrated police sympathies and the people do not trust him to adequately process this case to achieve justice. PLEASE SIGN
Michael Brown was an 18 year old that was killed by a Ferguson Police Officer on Saturday, August 9th. His family is now seeking justice for Michael’s death. Their pursuit for justice will be lengthy and hard but with the support of the community they will get justice. If you are willing to support Michael’s family please donate to Michael Brown’s Memorial Fund. These funds will assist his family with costs that they will acquire as they seek justice on Michael’s behalf. All funds will be given to the Michael Brown family. We appreciate your support.
This is a legitimate fundraiser confirmed by the family’s lawyer’s official twitter account and multiple news sources. This family has suffered so much, please help relieve one small worry from their life.
LITERALLY how can this petition possibly still be struggling to break 70k signatures?? are you against more measures to keep cops from killing black people in the streets? in their own homes? please signal boost this petition to all your social media sites.
This is the petition literally:
"Petitioning President Barack Obama: Please Enact New Federal Laws to Protect Citizens from Police Violence and Misconduct"
Signal boost the shit out of this.
This shit better work
HAH I REBLOGGED THIS LAST NIGHT AND LOOK WHAT I GOT FROM MY DAD TODAY OUT OF THE BLUE
what if we all got paper lolGUYS I REBLOGGED THIS LAST NIGHT AND I JUST GOT $150
It’s worked for white people, I figured I might as well give it a shot.
GET THIS GUY TO DISNEY WORLD DAMN IT
I want you to go man!
if this was a white girl this would have had the notes 3 weeks ago
People are sending him racist messages telling him it’s not gonna happen and he doesn’t belong in Disney World over this post. So we’re gonna reblog it even more.
reblog and make a wish!
this was removed from tumbrl due to “violating one or more of Tumblr’s Community Guidelines”, but since my wish came true the first time, I’m putting it back. :)
A while back I posted some pictures of my mom’s paintings, but some things came up and I’d like to talk about her again.
For the past couple years, we’ve been struggling with money like never before and she’s been having a very hard time selling things locally. Really it’s not working out at all. Today she came home from another unsuccessful show and finally told me that she refuses to paint or sell art work ever again. She said she wanted to throw her paintings away. She told me she hated art.
I’ll just say right now that this was one of the most painful things I’ve ever heard in my life. My mom is more important than anyone else in the world to me. She’s the one who taught me to love and appreciate art and all that I am today is because of her. I feel completely hopeless. And honestly, I still don’t know what to do. She’s my ultimate inspiration and I don’t know how to handle this at all. I’m really just taking a stab in the dark right now.
I’d just like to take a moment to promo my art hero. I think if there’s the chance that someone may come across her paintings and be interested in commissioning her or buying something, that’d be beyond amazing. If you’d like to see more of her work, her website is http://www.monikapate.com/ (the medium she uses is watercolor)
Her art is large in size, but she did some beautiful smaller paintings awhile ago for less than $100.
And if none of this, then even just some words of support for her would be more than enough.
I’ll be wrapping up my own commissions soon and opening those again too. All the money will be going to my parents.
I’m more than happy to answer any questions. Thanks a lot for everything guys
This is still a dead blog, but I figured it’d be worth a shot to reblog it here too.
oh damn, these are gorgeous.
