Care2 in the Media: Slide the City South Africa, Fisherman’s Wharf Dispensary, and Pedals the Bear

Care2 members are doing great things! Check out these petitions that are receiving national and international media attention while making a difference:

Slide the City South Africa: South African citizens are petitioning to cancel Slide the City events due to a water crisis facing the country. The same event was cancelled earlier this year in California due to concerns about unsustainable water usage. While the event’s organizer, Media24, claims that Slide the City recycles the water it uses, News24All Africa, and My Informs reported on the public’s insistence that the event is unnecessary. Tell Media24 to cancel Slide the City here.

KRINZE Fisherman’s Wharf Dispensary: The Fisherman’s Wharf community is up in arms over a proposal to build a medical marijuana dispensary nearby. Some residents and business owners say the dispensary is far from family-friendly. Care2 member and CEO of KRIZNE, Ray Connolly, sees otherwise and hopes the shop will benefit those suffering from chronic pain, like his late father who died of cancer. NBC Bay AreaCBS SF Bay Area, and ABC 7 News took a look at the dispensary’s pushback and support in California. Help San Francisco residents access medical cannabis to improve their quality of life here.

Pedals the Bear Update: Remember Pedals? Recent coverage by NJ.com, News12 New Jersey, and New Jersey 101.5 brings to light a new twist in the bipedal bear’s story. New York environmental officials will not permit the Orphaned Wildlife Center to take in Pedals, as they’ve already been granted a permit to care for another bear with special needs. You can still sign the petition urging the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife to relocate Pedals to an appropriate wildlife sanctuary.

Thank you to everyone who supported these petitions and others. If you see an opportunity to make a difference in your community, consider creating your own petition here.
