    We Stand in Solidarity #BlackLivesMatter To the Etsy Community, The past days and weeks have, once again, shone a spotlight on the tremendous injustices in our society. We stand in solidarity with our employees and communities who are voicing their anguish, anger, and deep frustration with systems that oppress and devalue Black lives. We stand against police brutality in all forms. We stand against a criminal justice system that disproportionately targets Black Americans. We stand against the widespread disenfranchisement of Black and Brown communities whose voices are silenced at the polls. Allyship with Black communities is as much a moral...

    ... White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany kicked off the press briefing by announcing that Trump would donate $100,000 to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to develop new therapies for treating and preventing coronavirus. "Here is the check," she said before holding up what appeared to be a real Capital One check bearing not just the president's name and signature, but also his bank information. Clearly visible was an address for his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida and other personal details, like accounting and routing numbers.
  • FDA eases restrictions on gay blood donors amid 'urgent need'

    NBC "News" ^ | 4/2/2020 | Tim Fitzsimons
    Amid what it’s calling an “urgent need for blood,” the Food and Drug Administration revised its blood donor guidelines on Thursday, significantly easing the restrictions on men who have sex with men. The new guidelines reduce the donation deferral period for sexually active gay and bisexual men from 12 months to three, meaning these otherwise healthy men will now have to abstain from same-sex sexual activity for 90 days before they are eligible to donate blood. Other 12-month deferral periods have also been shortened under the new guidelines, including those for people who have traveled to areas with certain endemic...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) assured to MSNBC that her campaign is still viable following an abysmal performance in the New Hampshire Democratic primary on Tuesday. Warren came in at fourth place. While talking to MSNBC and later posting to her Twitter account, Warren said a "broke" college student told her she only had $6.00 left in her bank account and how she donated half to "keep you in this fight."Warren said, "I tell you, there are so many people who are in this fight for the right reasons. A young girl came up to me tonight and said, “I’m a...

    **SNIP** On Tuesday evening, the Pete for America Innovation Team sent out an email to supporters launching a "contest" in which the person donating the smallest unique amount would win a prize. "All you have to do to win is donate the smallest amount that nobody else donates," the email read. "In other words, suppose you donate $1.00. If someone else playing also donated exactly $1, you both lose. We'll see if only one player donated $1.01 and so on until we find an amount donated exactly once, and that's our winner." The email added that "multiple donations are allowed"...

    While every single 2020 Democratic presidential candidate avidly supports a woman’s “right” to abortion, it seems some are considerably more comfortable with calling the procedure what it is: killing a child. Old sins cast especially long shadows when you run for president, as former New York Mayor and latecomer to the 2020 Democratic primary race, Michael Bloomberg has discovered, and an incident in the 90’s in which he rather crassly referred to abortion is making headlines once more. According to The New York Times, the former New York City Mayor was recently forced to address the heartless, decades-old statements made...

    Ivanka Trump is credited with a $50,000 donation to a Plano, Texas church that helps those detained at the border. Let’s face it, it’s been a rough week with the press coverage of the situation on the border for illegal aliens and their children. While much of the overwrought reporting has been discredited and Barack Obama’s policies have come under a newly found scrutiny, First Daughter Ivanka quietly donated a chunk of change to help out those trying to come into our country the illegal way. A little good news story is welcomed.Naturally, the source of this feel-good story...

    The DNC has voted not to accept any donations from fossil fuel companies. From HuffPost: The resolution ― proposed by Christine Pelosi, a party activist and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s daughter ― bars the organization from accepting contributions from corporate political action committees tied to the oil, gas and coal industries. The executive committee voted unanimously to approve the motion. “We talk about how climate change is real and climate change is a planetary emergency, what we need to do is stop taking money from the institutions that have created this crisis,” said RL Miller, president of the super...

    A Seattle man who recently sought to end his monthly donation to a Hillary Clinton nonprofit group ran into a small roadblock: There was no way to cancel his contribution, according to a report. Corey Koscielniak, 29, wanted to stop his $10.48 recurring tithe to Onward Together, the politican action organization Clinton formed after her 2016 election defeat, because the group disclosed little information on how it spent the money, he told the Seattle Times. “Onward Together (OT) accepts payment information, but provides no ability to alter or cancel donations once the initial donation is received,” Koscielniak wrote in his...
  • Recommendations for car donations please

    04/24/2018 9:36:44 AM PDT · by pfflier · 28 replies
    I am considering donating my car to a charity. The internet is full of charities that want the car but there is very little on the money management "internals" that say how the money is distributed. The BBB says some give as little as 4% up to 44% but usually they don't name names at either end of the spectrum. Any Freepers out there with recommendations and positive experiences? My preference would be to donate to Disabled Veterans, Veterans or animal welfare organizations in that order.

    Dear FReepers and Lurkers; As you all know, we are in the midst of another Freep-a-thon.  The going is slower than we would like, but we are getting there. FReepers have stood by this forum for decades now.  That's because we use this as a major source of news here in the United States and from around the world.  We know that we will read what was reported, and discuss it.  If the MSM is trying to slip something by, one or more of our FReepers will catch it and address it.  If something isn't reported, our FReepers will raise...

    Colin Kaepernick entered the home stretch of his Million Dollar Pledge last week with a donation to one of Democratic moneyman George Soros’s favorite left-wing resistance groups. The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback announced Thursday that his foundation would give $10,000 to the Advancement Project as part of his commitment to donate $1 million to organizations “working in oppressed communities.” Advancement Project has another prominent funder: Mr. Soros, whose major philanthropies have given more than $9.5 million to the group since 1999, according to the conservative Capital Research Center.

    resident Trump may have thrown his support to GOP Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, but another Republican, Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake, made it clear he does not think Moore should be elected to fill Jeff Sessions' former seat. He wrote a $100 check to Moore's opponent, Democrat Doug Jones, and tweeted a photo, with a simple caption, "Country over Party." The Arizona senator has also tweeted, "Just to be clear. If the choice is between Roy Moore and a Democrat, I would run to the polling place to vote for the Democrat." After the Washington Post reported that several women...

    I just received a call from the RNC in DC asking for a donation. Normally I don't pick up on these calls but this morning, after reading the Breitbart article on Session, I answered the call. Before the woman could continue her sales pitch, I said, "I'm not sending the Republican Party another dime until Sessions is replaced and the DOJ prosecutes the Clintons". The woman's started speaking, "Well, you know sir..." My response. "Click". Maybe if they get enough responses like this, they'll get the message. What can I say, I'm an optimist.
