I own all the content and pictures on this site, except where noted. If you steal anything from me, and
especially if you do anything mean or inappropriate with them, I will find you. Then I'll sue you for
theft, slander, libel and any other law that applies. Then I'll ridicule you in humiliating ways
here and everywhere else I contribute to. If you fuck with me, I'll get get all Gladiator on your ass
and unleash hell. Think I'm kidding? So did my a couple of my exes, my old neighbors, as well as
some assholes who ripped me off on Ebay, and last I heard, they were all still trying to undo the
damage I caused.
I've recently learned of a couple of good causes that could really benefit from your support. I've been asked to help spread the word about these, which I'm glad to do.
First up, Pampers and UNICEF have teamed up for the "One Pack = One Vaccine" campaign. This is a global initiative to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus, a preventable disease that claims the lives of approximately 128,000 infants and up to 30,000 mothers in less industrialized nations each year. I'm sure you've seen the commercials on TV for this - they're the ones with images of babies; one plays "Silent Night" and the other "Happy Birthday To You".
Now through May 1, you have the opportunity to help UNICEF protect moms and babies around the world against tetanus; all you have to do is buy specially-marked packages of Pampers diapers and wipes. Each product purchased triggers one life-saving vaccine.
So if you have a baby and need diapers/wipes, or you know someone with a baby, find the specially-marked packages of Pampers and help someone in need get this life-saving vaccine.
Next, the Fresh Air Fund needs you! If you live in the Northeast and Canada, that is. For reals. The Fresh Air Fund provides free summer vacations to New York City children from low-income communities - more than 1.7 million since 1877. In order to keep their mission going, they need families in the Northeast and Canada (check out the map to see specific states) to host kids this summer. By being a host family, you help an inner-city child experience a world they might never otherwise know: life outside the city, where can experience the beauty of nature.

These are tough times for us all. But these are a couple of ways you can give back and do some good for others without severely hurting your wallet.
