Give a family the tools to lift themselves out of poverty with Heifer International.

Dear Terry,

“After we joined we were able to change our lives.” – Molina Begum, Bangladesh.

Not long ago, Molina struggled to provide even basic needs for her family. She was desperate to change her family's future, but with little education and no savings, every door seemed closed. One day while talking with a neighbor, Molina heard about Heifer International, and that we were giving animals to women in her area.

The gift of a dairy cow from a generous Heifer donor provided what Molina needed to build a secure and hopeful future for her family.

As a mother, her first priority was clear: provide nutritious and more frequent meals to her family. A close second was improving their home environment and educating their daughter. What seem like small goals to us seemed insurmountable to Molina.

But a Heifer gift provided the tools for Molina to build a more sustainable future for her family:

Molina Begum, Bangladesh, with her family

One gift makes a difference

Molina Begum’s gift from a Heifer International donor has given her family a brighter future. Your gift today can make a difference in 2014 for another family like Molina’s.

Give a Heifer gift
  • The family’s mango nursery now sells 10 times as many trees thanks to trainings they received.
  • Molina’s daughter is attending school regularly and has dreams of attending university.
  • Daily income has gone from 47 cents to $11!
  • More animals like chickens, pigeons and a goat have diversified the family farm.
And, according to Molina, the entire village has improved drastically as well.

Isn’t it impressive how far one Heifer gift can go?

Make another Heifer gift today and provide the tools for another family to lift themselves out of poverty.

Heifer gifts often come to mind as great holiday gifts (and they are!) but our projects rely on gifts throughout the year. Ending hunger and poverty happens each day in every community we serve.

Last year alone, we were able to help another 2.1 million families achieve self-reliance, many of whom were in desperate situations like Molina. Now, with secure sources of food and income, those families are helping others through the act of Passing on the Gift.

You can change a life with one simple gift. Please support Heifer’s work and become a part of changing another family’s life today.

Changing lives together,

Fwd: News of the Week: Peace & Union Edition! Syria, South China Sea, Space, Afghanistan, Unions, Boeing, MLK!

Syria Peace Conference: the Obama administrations' Orwellian subterfuge

 

It is difficult to call this week's gathering in Montreux, Switzerland, a "peace conference" on Syria, since the U.S. and its allies are determined to change the regime by force of arms. Washington has forged an "unholy alliance with its "Wahhabi allies from Saudi Arabia and al-Qaeda," who act as America's "boots on the ground."

Interview with 'Save our Unions' author

 

Jack Rasmus interview with Steve Early looks at the past four decades of partial victories, and numerous defeats, suffered by union labor in America, and what needs to be done for unions to rise again and play the vital economic and social role they once did.

Warmongers monger: When will we ever learn?

 

O happy day for militarists and weapons makers! China is asserting its right to islands that were captured fair and square by Japan in 1895. Actually, China has protested Japan's ownership of certain islands near China at least since 1879, when China asked Ulysses S. Grant to keep Japan from annexing Okinawa, including Yaeyama. But now, China has claimed airspace that challenges Japanese and US hegemony in the South China Sea. This is great for war business!

MLK - Beyond the Dreamer

 

In the last year of his life, Martin Luther King Jr. struggled with what are best understood as existential challenges as he began to move toward an ever-more-profound and radical understanding of what would be required to deal with the nation's domestic and international problems.

The direction he was exploring, I believe, is far more relevant to the realities we now face than many have realized—or have wanted to realize.

Rejecting the Rule of Law - In Space

 

The U.S. Now Backs a "Code of Conduct" for Space, Instead of a Legally Binding Treaty to Ban Space Weapons. The U.S. has been the only nation to block every vote to begin negotiations on such a treaty, with Israel generally abstaining in support.

Karzai must stand up to US war crimes

 

Interview with Green Shadow Cabinet Secretary of Defence, Leah Bolger, on the response of the Afghan government to US warcrimes.

The Afghanistan War is now the longest in US history.

"Shamefully... the American people have gained nothing. The people who have gained in this war is what we call the Military Industrial Complex - the defence contractors the makers of the weapons, who have made a lot of money on this war, and they want to see it continue." - Leah Bolger

Boeing workers speak out

 

Jack Rasmus follows up his article Boeing Workers Forced Into Massive Concessions with interviews of Boeing workers who were forced into massive concessions by a combined offensive by Boeing Corp., in alliance with politicians, their International Union office, and suspiciously organized community groups paid by sources yet unknown.

TQ: When billionaires jump on the gravy train that whole racist legal structure that Roosevelt endorsed in the 30's will turn into a memory.

Wow baby this is a mouthful of words worth hearing. I think we should pay close attention to what isn't spoken yet. This is a major step pushing the Pot Business closer to that big Wall...Street thingy. Interesting who besides Starbucks jumps in the big business Pot band wagon. Watch it won't be the little guy making millions, billions. I wonder if the Koch Brothers will get in on this, down the yellow brick road.

#SEX QUESTIONS T0 BOGGLE THE MIND

I'm more interested in whether Almighty God, in whose perfect image man was made, cooked up the circumcision idea so that no man would have a penis like his?  Otherwise...WTF?

Fwd: *** Official 2014 Membership Survey ***




Dear MoveOn member,

Next Tuesday, President Obama will deliver his annual State of the Union address—and the whole country will be thinking, at least for a moment, about what's possible in 2014.

Imagine you were at the podium. What are YOUR priorities for changing your community and our country as a whole in 2014? Click here

There are tons of issues and opportunities to choose from—including big, upcoming congressional elections; state and local fights on everything from fracking to paid sick leave; and national discussions of a minimum wage increase, diplomacy with Iran, implementation of Obamacare, international trade deals, and more.

This year, MoveOn members will launch and run thousands of powerful campaigns, from their local city halls to the halls of Congress. And as a national MoveOn community, we'll pick a small number of high-priority campaigns where we pool our resources and focus to make the biggest impact.

So we've put together this Official 2014 Membership Survey to get a better idea of where MoveOn members stand, plan our next steps together, and help connect you to the campaigns you care about most.

Will you take three minutes to fill out this important member survey? Click here:

Take Survey

After we get all the responses, we'll put together a report on MoveOn members' priorities and share a copy of it with the White House, congressional leaders, and the media before the State of the Union address—so they know what progressives are focused on as we kick off 2014. 

Of course, every MoveOn member will get a copy as well. 


Thanks for all you do.

Hello America,

For over a year, we have asked and asked again for TV providers to carry TheBlaze… a new kind of television network we've been building from the ground up, a network with world-class news and entertainment. One rooted in truth, freedom, faith, and family values.

Some have enthusiastically listened to you, but sadly, many have not. Many TV providers - big ones like DirecTV, Comcast and Time Warner Cable - have decided that channels like CNN, MSNBC, and Al Jazeera America are all you need. We know you disagree. We disagree too. 

Today, TheBlaze is available in a growing number of households through over 50 cable and satellite systems. That is great progress, especially since we've only been broadcasting over traditional TV for a year! None of this would have been possible without your help and I cannot thank you enough.

But more work lies ahead.

We know your TV provider has heard your phone calls. We know that they have read your emails. Our partnerships with DISH, Optimum, RCN, and others prove that there are TV providers who listen to their customers. Our GetTheBlaze campaign is working! So let's keep it up and convince those who have chosen not to listen  like Comcast, Time Warner Cable, DirecTV, U-VERSE and FiOS  to add TheBlaze.

Today I am asking you to call your TV provider and demand that they add TheBlaze. Simply demand that they give you the choice to watch programming that reflects your values.

Make your choice heard now by calling 1-800-996-2529.

A chorus is made up of individual voices, and they accomplish together what none of them could do alone. So it is for us too. We cannot win this fight alone, but when we join together, we cannot lose.

1-800-996-2529 is the number. Now is the time. You are the voice. Please, take a moment and do it right now.

For more visit GetTheBlaze.com.

Laus Deo,


P.S. While you wait for your TV provider to add TheBlaze to your channel lineup, you don't have to miss out. You can support TheBlaze and watch the network online by subscribing to TheBlaze TV.

Fwd: Put an end to Citizens United's secret spending



Dear MoveOn member,

We're the organization Demos, and we started a petition to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, which says:

The Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) must not condone secret corporate political spending. The SEC has the power to do what so many Americans demand: require public corporations to disclose all political spending. 

Put the public disclosure rule back on the SEC 2014 agenda now! 

Citizens United opened the door for corporations to inject unlimited money into our politicsbut the Supreme Court assumed it would all be disclosed to shareholders and the public. Instead, there's been an explosion of dark money in our elections. Without a disclosure rule from the SEC, corporations can spend entirely behind closed doors.

Senator Elizabeth Warren says that secret corporate political spending is "fundamentally wrong. It undercuts the basic notions of corporate democracy, and ultimately all of democracy."

Stand with Senator Warrendemand that the SEC require disclosure of secret corporate political spending.

A record-breaking 660,000 comments have called for the SEC to act to require disclosure of corporate political spending. But SEC Chairwoman Mary Jo White rejected these appeals and removed the rule from the SEC's 2014 agenda. She's getting pressure from powerful business groups that prefer to use shareholder money to exert political power without any accountability. 

It is up to us to let the SEC know we need the corporate political disclosure rule back on their agenda. It's time to stop secret corporate political spending now, before even more dark corporate money floods our elections.

Click here to add your name to this petition, and then pass it along to your friends.

Thanks!
