Your Recent Successes

Dedicated Care2 members have worked hard all year to make this world a better place. Here are a few recent examples of how some of you have helped:

Service Dog Saved From Death

After being accused of biting a neighbor, Mimi — service dog to disabled veteran Steven Woods — was taken from her home and labeled “dangerous,” despite no proof of any wrongdoing. An outpour of donations from around the world helped Steven pay the fines needed to bring Mimi home and stop officials from putting her to sleep. However, city officials are targeting Steven once again. Read more.

Senate Passes Food Safety Bill

Our petition putting pressure on senators to pass this bill garnered over 28,000 signatures, and now we can celebrate a success after the Senate approved the biggest overhaul to the nation’s food safety laws since the 1930s, as the Food Safety Modernization Act passed on a 73-25 vote. Read more.

No Offshore Drilling For Seven Years

The Obama administration announced earlier this month that it would not propose any new oil drilling in waters off the East Coast of the United States for at least the next seven years. Care2 members have signed several petitions to stop ALL offshore drilling and this ban is a great start. Read more.

Trawling Banned In Belize

In early December, a ban was set on all forms of trawling in the Belize — a controversial and destructive type of fishing that involves dragging a weighted net across the seafloor, which can crush anything in its path. A special thank you goes to Oceana and supporters for making this victory possible. Read more.

Blue Valentine NC-17 Rating Overturned

More than 3,000 Care2 members signed the petition appealing the NC-17 rating of the film Blue Valentine. Along with your signatures and complaints from the actors and all involved with the film, the Motion Picture Association of American (MPAA) agreed to change the rating to R — allowing more access to the film.

Thank you for continuously taking action — you are making a difference!

While doing good is its own reward it certainly is nice to hear that some of our efforts here at Care2 have paid off. We need more of these stories telling of how members are making a difference.

Overburdened, unpaid, anxious for non existent jobs, doing what we can and doing it together......are we the heros?

Lord, we need heros.

Has our nation back slidden so much that you have taken away the heros?

For, behold, the LORD, the LORD of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread and the whole stay of water.

The mighty man and the man of war, the judge and the prophet and the prudent and the ancient.

The captain of fifty and the honourable man and the counsellor and the cunning artificer and the eloquent orator.

And I will give children to be their princes and babes shall rule over them.

And the people shall be oppressed, Isaiah 3:1-5

Wake up, America.

We are like ancient Israel just before Jerusalem was invaded.

Wake up, turn to Creator and repent!

Turn now to the ways of wisdom and right-ness.

There is only a little time left.
