back when I was ill, I followed conspiracy theories and believed that vaccines are dangerous, I warned my friends against them. Now, my eyes have been opened and I realise the amount of good people like Bill Gates (who I believed was a eugenicist) do in the world. It’s crazy that people who do as much good as he does get called ‘evil’ and suspected of practising eugenics. I’ve done my research and the only reason I can find for people suspecting him of this is that he supports Planned Parenthood- surely this just means he’s pro-contraception? Please share with me your views on this…thanks!

There’s a campaign currently running to stop world hunger (you don’t have to give money to help!) more info here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xi38ZtG4NhM
You can subscribe to the campaign’s youtube page, facebook and/or twitter: (all are ‘EnoughFoodIF’) to be kept up to date with the campaign’s progress and for ideas on how you can help (such as emailing your MP- the email is pre-written for you and you have the option of typing in a small paragraph of your own, you don’t have to though.)
Did you know that 1 in 8 people in the world goes to bed hungry? Let’s make 2013 the year that changes this :)
from Marks and Spencer (a UK shop) today. They cost about £1 more than cotton buds from other stores, but the cotton used to create the M &S cotton buds is grown in Senegal, and the extra money generated there goes towards schools, hospitals and medicine. It’s well worth it, IMHO :) Marks and Spencer’s is a great ethical store, practically all of its makeup, bath products and even sun lotion are animal-friendly (as shown by the BUAV symbol on them- google the symbol if you’re interested) and a lot of its cosmetic products are Fair Trade.
Another good inspirational video is this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-IUSZyjiYuY
At the moment I am on benefits, and my parents have advised I don’t give any more money away til I’m earning, other than the £2 a month I give to Amnesty International and £2 to WaterAid. But I really feel like it’s my purpose to do more. Ok, I’m no saint, but I’d like to try and emulate Gandhi in some respects (not all). I still want to be able to wear nice clothes, but I still feel there’s a lot more I could be giving, both monetary and otherwise. The question is how? Or in what way?
I have to stay away from Amnesty International letter writing, because the cases were depressing me too much. I’d really like to donate to a charity against landmines, but again that could be a danger. All I know is, the world is in desperate need of more love. And luckily, I’m not the only one who wants to save it by far. If only I knew in which way I could help :S
EDIT: I apologise for the cheesiness of this post lol
I bought a cruelty-free lipgloss today,from Marks & Spencer. This UK shop, I believe most (if not all) of its perfumes are approved by the BUAV (and therefore animal friendly) and most (if not all) of its cosmetics too. You can tell its BUAV approved by the symbol of a rabbit jumping and stars on the back of the product, as shown here:
I will likely be buying a lot more cosmetics from Marks & Spencer in the future, now that I know exactly how animal friendly its products are
PS No I don’t work there haha
