Hey everyone. I just got this vulture in. Haven’t done an exam on him yet (waiting on an extra pair of hands) but it sounds like he was grounded in a neighborhood in Greenville for about 5 days. He will most likely require care from someone who knows more about vultures. The problem is, we cannot afford to transport this guy right now. We need help! Many of you know that we do this work voluntarily and pay for everything out of pocket. If you can, please consider donating to our rescue! This vulture really needs your help! You can donate any amount of money through Paypal, to the email address: roverage@hotmail.com!

If all of my followers donated just 50 cents it would be more than enough to pay for this bird to get the help he needs! Please donate! 

Thank you to everyone who reblogged!

Unfortunately we have still only received $3 to help this guy out!

This is not enough to get the vulture the care he needs! Please help!

I was finally able to do an examination on him and discovered a compound fracture in his left wing elbow joint. This is a serious injury - especially since it is 5 days old now, and he is severely emaciated because of it!

Listen guys, I know it isn’t the usual ‘cute’ animal that is fun to reblog and support. Like a kitten or a dog. But every animal deserves a happy, healthy live. this guy is suffering with pain and starvation and he needs help.

Reblog and donate if you can. It won’t even take that much.

I don’t think I know anyone with this background, but maybe we can signal boost. One major thing the Ferguson organizers have been asking for specifically for several days is for service donations from mental health professionals with a background in trauma counseling, people of color would be preferable for obvious reasons. If you know someone who might be willing to either to go to Ferguson or do tele-sessions, please direct them to this form.

Things You Can Do For Ferguson:

donrickles:

  • Donate money to have those arrested in Ferguson released on bail. These people belong on the streets, especially at a time like this.
  • Send a note of condolence to the family of Michael Brown. Let’s not forget the tragedy that started this.
  • Donate to the Michael Brown Memorial Fund. This is an official fundraiser run by the Brown family’s lawyers. They are going through so much, lets make sure at the very least it isn’t a financial burden.
  • Help get people on the ground. There are activists and reporters who want to do their part and get to Ferguson. Donate and get them there. I am so far aware of Zellie Imani, Zak Jemmott, and JR Valrey (a reporter for SF Bay View).
  • Donate to the Ferguson Youth Initiative.The children of this community deserve better than to be gunned down. Make sure they get that in the future.
  • Feed the children of Ferguson. Many children in America rely on school to get their meals and thanks to the civil unrest caused by the police, the children of Ferguson have been without school since Monday. These people want to make sure that doesn’t mean anyone is going hungry.
  • Find a National Moment of Silence in your area. If one doesn’t exist, start one. Share this experience with others. Solidarity is important.
  • Keep awareness up. Not just among the like-minded people on tumblr, this is something everyone needs to be aware of.
  • Spread accurate information. There is a lot of distortion going on here and spreading every piece of information as it is reported only makes that worse. First and foremost make sure you are listening carefully, then share what is important and relevant.

If you are aware of any good causes or ways to help that I have missed, please reblog and add them.

Chicago tomorrow is going to be really really ugly the timing of this is deliberate PLEASE stay safe

what’s happening there?

CPD, FBI, and Illinois State Troopers are going into “troubled neighborhoods” to hunt down criminals for the next 60 days or so.
http://abc7chicago.com/politics/illinois-state-police-deployment-in-chicago-starts-thursday/256983/

SPREAD THIS LIKE FIRE. POLICE IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE FBI AND CPD ARE CONDUCTING MASS PROFILING AND OCCUPATIONS OF RESIDENTIAL AREAS. THEY ARE TARGETING BLACK AMERICANS.

Like everyone else has said: this isn’t a coincidence and “criminals” is code for Black Americans. Please stay safe.

List of Evacuee Shelters for parts of O’ahu & Extra Info

femmeboyant:

nerdfaceangst:

nerdfaceangst:

THESE RED CROSS SHELTERS WILL BE OPEN TO EVACUEES ON THURSDAY (TODAY) AUGUST 7TH AT 10:00PM. LET’S HOPE IT DOESN’T COME TO THAT. My building has been wonderful enough to have lots of this info around for us residents.

These shelters have been designated by officials and should ONLY BE USED AS A LAST RESORT FOR THOSE WITH NOWHERE TO GO. Keep in mind it is likely homeless people will be seeking refuge and so if you have somewhere else to go, GO - unless you have no choice. We need to keep the shelters as open and available for those in need!

  • Campbell High School 91-980 North Rd Ewa Beach
  • Kaimuki High School 2705 Kaimuki Ave Honolulu PET FRIENDLY
  • Kaiser High School 511 Lunalilo Home Road Honolulu
  • McKinley High School 1039 South King St Honolulu
  • Castle High School 45-386 Kaneohe Bay Dr Kaneohe
  • Mililani High School 95-1200 Meheula Parkway Mililani
  • Pearl City High School 2100 Ho’okiekie St Pearl City PET FRIENDLY
  • Waialua High School/Intermediate 67-160 Farrington Waialua PET FRIENDLY
  • Nanakuli High/Middle School 89-980 Nanakuli Ave Waianae PET FRIENDLY
  • BYU-HAWAII 55-220 Kulanui St Kahuku PET FRIENDLY

Here is a list of things you can go through for final prepping:

  • CHARGE EVERYTHING
  • Wash your hair (you don’t know if water will be knocked out)
  • Wash your clothes
  • Wash your bedclothes
  • Doublecheck your fridge/stockpile
  • Leave one window slightly open to even out the pressure inside your home
  • Map out a route that avoids heavy foliage and landslide areas (DO NOT DRIVE PALI OR AROUND DIAMOND HEAD COAST SIDE)
  • Consolidate everything and walk your family through them so that they know where everything is
  • Make sure you have a bag for your pet prepped
  • Cook and store whatever perishables you may have

We are preparing for the worst but hoping for nothing to happen at all! If the worst DOES happen, remember the Aloha Spirit. We are nothing without it. We are Hawai’i and the Aloha Spirit is what kept us on through many trials. If you see someone in need, help them, we are NOT an “everybody for themselves” community! Give shelter if it’s needed! Always kokua!

PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST THIS!

FOR FUCK’S SAKE, YES, STAY AWAY FROM THE PALI.  My dad works as a C&C arborist and every time there’s a storm, he spends hours with several crews just trying to clear the fallen branches/whole trees from the roads.  The winds get really strong up mauka (come on, even when there’s good weather, getting blown off the Pali is always a distinct possibility) and you don’t wanna get trapped up there until emergency workers can clear a path to you.

Also def make sure you have a storm kit with batteries, a flashlight, candles, matches, first aid supplies, and food & water.  Protect your electronics from power surges, and don’t call 911 unless you are actually having an emergency, as the lines tend to get tied up during storms.

Best of luck and lots of love to my ohana back home; I’ll be sending you positive vibes from the PNW. <3

I'm moving and I need to raise $100 to do it      

iridessence:

Hey folks!

In a week, I’ll be moving out of my house to my new place of residence (the finer details of which I’d like to keep to myself for safety purposes) and in order to do that, I’m going to need to rent a pickup truck from U-Haul. The truck I’ve selected will cost me about $30 up front and another $0.59 per mile and I’ll be going at least sixty miles altogether I think. I’m sure the truck will need gas as well. I want to raise $100 by the 14th to cover all of my bases, and to pay the insurance fee too.

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m not working until the school year begins and for me, that’s the end of August. So right now, I’ve got no income. My mother who’s been my only source of income is struggling as well, and we’re already behind on a lot of bills, and we’re doing what we can. She’s already helping me by helping me get supplies for my new living arrangements.

It really makes me uncomfortable to make a post asking for donations, especially when I did so to raise (a pitiful) $10 last week, but the reality is that I’m running out of options and my family is stretched thin right now.

I have a donate button on my blog and every little bit helps. If you are able to help and/or reblog and want to, I’d appreciate it. If not, then have a great day anyway. Thanks.

Please Help Isis (y’all have previously helped her a few years ago during a bad case of pneumonia)

Since November, Isis’ condition has been deteriorating. She’s losing weight fast, lethargic, and hard to wake up. She has limited mobility in her back legs, and is unable to land on her feet. She no longer can climb anything. After a scary night last night [8/5/14 to 8/6/14] I decided to rush her to the vet instead of waiting two weeks [when I get paid, I have an appt. scheduled for her for the 19th]. Currently she is at the Chase Vetrinary facility in a near by town.

I have 70$ for the initial visit, but now they are doing diagnostics like blood work and a possible x-ray. They will be giving me an estimate soon. I do not get paid until Thursday the 14th, and I’ve paid my bills already so I am expecting only to have to pay for this. I will be charging my credit card and paying it off after I get paid. But I would like some assistance.

Many of my friends have known that I had concerns that Isis was dying, and it may end up that if she is having some sort of kidney or thyroid failure, I’ll have to put her down. They can attest to this [if you need evidence, please feel free to contact me].

If you can donate, please donate here at my paypal.

I am also willing to do services such as sewing, crochet, editing writing, etc. I have an instagram that shows what I can do, but I will only share it to those interested in any services.

Isis is the naughtiest, tiniest black kitty in the world and I love her to bits. I am not expecting to “save” her, or anything, but to know whats going on and if she needs to be in peace I will make that choice. I will keep updates about her condition on my tumblr tagged isis.

Please signal boost, and donate only if you can.

UPDATE: Total cost of care so far is $427.

She is being treated with an enema because she has a significant amount of fecal matter that is not passing through her intestinal tract.

If 139 people donated 3 dollars, I’d have 417 dollars. I know I have 139 followers, and I know those followers have followers as well. Reblogging this again!

So far $95.66 raised!

freemarissanow:

Marissa Alexander has been denied a new Stand Your Ground hearing. Yet again, Florida refuses to free this survivor of domestic violence, fails to support women’s right to self defense, and continues to support anti-black racism in the judicial system. Her new trial is still scheduled to begin Dec 8th.

Marissa needs your voices and support more than ever!

Popular antidepressant Effexor recalled: What you should do

klingonrealitytelevision:

kiriamaya:

kaninchenzero:

harrrymonster:

blissandzen:

Patients taking the antidepressant Effexor (venlafaxine) should be aware that the drug manufacturer Pfizer has issued a recall of one lot of the medications after they discovered one bottle contained a heart drug used to treat atrial fibrillation.

The medication found is Tikosyn that was discovered in one bottle of Effexor XR. The heart medication could cause abnormal heartbeat that could cause symptoms of dizziness, sweating, pallor and fainting.

Patients should check their antidepressant for lot numbers 130142 and V130140, with expiration date of October 2015. Also recalled is Effexor XR with Greenstone lot number V130014, which expires in August 2015.

The antidepressant recall includes two lots of Effexor XR® 150 Mg Extended-Release Capsules and one lot of Greenstone’s Venlafaxine HCl 150 Mg Extended-Release Capsules.

The FDA warns the interaction between the heart drug Tikosyn and venlafaxine “could be fatal”.

Hi friends - if you know anyone who might use the medication, please reblog/signal boost

well fuck i’ll have to check mine when i get home

Boost this!

Yo, check with your Pharmacy as well, give them a call/go to the store and ask. When these things happen all pharmacies get the notices and check their products (mostly cause we gotta ship ‘em back) Also, you only need to be careful if you’re getting the actual bottle and not amber vials. 

Effexor and Tikosyn look waaay different and any tech/Pharmacist would probably have noticed. We open the bottles, pour out the pills and count them. Believe me, someone probably would have been secretly playing that “One of these things is not like the other.” game. 

Venlafaxine kind of looks like Tikosyn? But not really, and since there’s no generic Pfizer’s name is literally on the pill so…

For the past few months, I have been promoting commissions on Tumblr because I’m going through a fairly dark stage in my life. I’ve just started living out on my own and I’m in a town where it’s near impossible to get a job anywhere. At this point in time, it would be futile to get a summer job since it wouldn’t last very long, so my only method of income is through commissions. I’ve created signage for my regular hand drawn and pixel commissions, but yielded little to no interest. Other people on Tumblr are in a similar spot as I am, relying only on commissions as a means of keeping up with bills and getting food to eat. It’s approaching the middle of the month and I currently have $38 to my name, just a little over $200 short of my intended goal.
And no matter how many times I post my information, no matter how many times I bring up these offers, no matter what I do and how I go about presenting it…there’s not a lot of people who are interested. There’s honestly no point in posting these kinds of journals if nobody’s going to take time to realize that there’s artists who need money to survive. It sickens me that some people out there can be apathetic, not caring that someone out there with potential could be facing starvation or homelessness because they’re not given a chance.

This is my job. This is a labor of love and it’s the only thing that will keep me afloat. It helps me buy food. It helps me buy things I need to take care of myself. It helps me keep a roof over my head. I NEED COMMISSIONS IN ORDER TO SURVIVE. IF I DON’T I WILL BECOME HOMELESS. I HAVE NOWHERE TO GO IN THIS TOWN AND I WILL PROBABLY DIE IF I END UP ON THE STREETS. I don’t know how else to explain this.

Unless I start seeing results for potential new commissions, this will be the last journal I am going to make. Otherwise, this is no longer worth my time and effort to promote commissions here on Tumblr. I’m tired of asking nicely. HELP ME.

I’d be a real bastard if I didn’t reblog this.
