Little girl shows remarkable poise in stare-down with African lion
The students in Mr. Wells fourth grade class in Brookline, Massachusetts love The Lorax by Dr. Seuss. They love the story, and they especially love the books message that if we dont start prioritizing the environment, the consequences will be disastrous.
So they were super excited to learn that Universal Studios made The Lorax into a blockbuster animated movie (it comes out in March on Dr. Seuss birthday). But when the kids went to the movies website, they were crestfallen to see it had no environmental education at all. Nothing about pollution, nothing about trees, just information on how to buy tickets.
The website is more about making money than helping the planet, and thats exactly what the book says not to do, says Georgia, who is 10.
So Mr. Wells kids decided to take matters into their own hands -- they started a petition on Change.org asking Universal to include environmental education on The Lorax movie website. Click here to sign their petition now.
This movie can show the world we should not take our sky, water, trees, and animals for granted, the kids say in their petition. Were encouraging Universal to make an improved Lorax movie website that Dr. Seuss would be proud of.
For his part, Mr. Wells is pretty proud of his students already. As a teacher, I want to help kids know they have a voice and that, like the Lorax, they should speak up and act if there's a problem in their world, he says.
If Universal executives see that their target audience feels strongly about the inclusion of environmental education in The Lorax website and other promotional materials, theyll make it happen. Mr. Wells class asked that we include their favorite quote from The Lorax in this email: Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothings going to get better, its not.
Thanks for being a change-maker,

On February 26, our son Trayvon Martin was shot and killed as he walked to a family member's home from a convenience store where he had just bought some candy. He was only 17 years-old. Trayvon's killer, George Zimmerman, admitted to police that he shot Trayvon in the chest. Zimmerman, the community's self appointed "neighborhood watch leader," called the police to report a suspicious person when he saw Travyon, a young black man, walking from the store. But Zimmerman still hasn't been charged for murdering my son. Trayvon was our hero. At the age 9, Trayvon pulled his father from a burning kitchen, saving his life. He loved sports and horseback riding.

Please help me save my daughter 8:16 PM
I have taken on three beautiful girls. My oldest is now 15 and her biological mother has never did anything for these girls but hurt them in more ways than one. She only cared about them for a short time and even when she was around I still was there Mother, she only cared about her drugs and alcohol. She walked out of there lives not to return, left them like bags of trash. She has not seen my oldest daughter in 11 years. I am asking for people to sign my petition to keep my daughter safe and out of harms way. She is a beautiful girl with a bright future ahead of her, she is terrified to go back to her biological Mother, this would set her on a downward spiral and it would also effect her 2 little sisters. Please take the time out to sign my petition and save a my daughters life. Thank you

PETITION ON CHANGE.ORG RE: BULLING
Quoted from change.org e-newsletter:
Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp and Ellen DeGeneres support Katy's fight against bullies
"I used to be bullied so badly that I was afraid to go to school. When I saw that a new documentary made to stop bullying was rated R, I started a petition asking the Motion Picture Association of America to change the rating to PG-13 so that the kids who most needed to see the film would be able to. A few weeks and almost half a million signatures later, I got to be on The Ellen Show. Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, and 35 members of Congress threw their support behind my campaign. Now the movie's distributor, The Weinstein Company, is releasing the film as 'unrated' so that all kids can see the movie." -Katy Butler
