My nickname, Caili (pronounced Kaylee), is a shortened form of my name. I'm a social liberal, environmentalist and vegan. I'm active in a variety of causes ranging from animal rights and environmental protection to social and economic equality and am always looking for ways to help make a difference in the world. 

** NOTE: My butterfly reward numbers are greatly inaccurate, as completed rewards started disappearing from my account a year ago. That's why there is such a large discrepancy between credits earned and rewards listed. I have reported this problem multiple times without ever receiving a response. While I continue to be semi-active here, I am not nearly as active as I once was. I can better spend my time working on real-world activities where I know that I can make a difference.

About Me I'm a strong supporter of a variety of charitable causes and am always looking for ways to help make a difference. I'm highly creative and artistic, but also have a strong thirst for knowledge. I enjoy sharing that knowledge with others and helping others along, whenever possible. At the same time, I absorb as much as I can from others and believe that learning is a life-long pursuit. After all, with knowledge, comes the power to effect change and make a difference. Every day brings a new experience and opportunity to do something worth while. That is something to which I always look forward.

Wild Fact About Me
My Philosophy The only voice that cannot be heard is the one that is not exercised. Do so with compassion and conviction, because change is only within our grasp when we lead with thoughtfulness and conviction in our beliefs.
What Gives Me Hope The potential for change.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by 1. End offshore drilling, GMO's and factory farming practices.

2. Ensure that animal rights are protected.

3. Create stiff penalties for corporate practices that harm human health, violate human rights and damage the environment.

4. Create incentives for both corporations and small businesses that lead the way in renewable energy innovations, while safeguarding the environment and the interests of the public.

5. Reinvest in American small businesses to create jobs and penalize corporations that send more than 25% of their jobs overseas.

6. Ensure that all works have access to a living wage.

7. End corporate welfare.

8. Establish a universal health care system in the United States.

9. Look for peaceful solutions to our world's problems.

10. Create sensible and reasonable gun law, while working to improve mental health care in the US.
