My sister sent me this today and I wanted to share it with you. I'm huge of letting animals be and I think things like this are horrible. Yes, I love to see dolphins, and swim with them, and I love dolphin shows but I don't love that we think have to catch them to get near them.
"The pod was swimming peacefully in Samoa when nets closed in from behind -- trapping 25 wild dolphins for a luxury resort's latest exhibit. They are now locked in tiny pens, starved of food -- but we can free them. "
Please go to the site to sign the petition to free these dolphins!

I love this! I was just thinking the other day about how we're all supposed to have that one size and shape as women and how I hate that! I think this sort of thing will likely take some time to pick up but really, how wonderful right? We're all different, unique, and I for one don't want to be the same as everyone else!

This is good right? I have been struggling lately with just being happy with me, and with what I have. I have a really great life and I don't know why I get caught up in having what someone else has. Well, I do sort of know, I am constantly around media sources that pour that into me; you have to have better, more, what the other guy has, stronger, faster, more expensive. Don't get me wrong, there's just some things I want the best of but really why can't we just be happy too? Why not be in the now, enjoy the now, enjoy what we have right here, and right now? I'm working on it that's for sure.

I know this isn't my usual Making Change post style, but I think a good, healthy product can contribute to change, and if it's stylish and popular, well then even more power to it!
Here's a quote and info from the website:
"Can a lip balm make you smile? We think so. That's why we invented this one.
- Long-lasting moisture
- Shea butter & vitamin E
- Smoothes on clear
- New smooth sphere precisely glides on to lips
- Twist-off top
eos lip balm is 95% organic, 100% natural, and paraben and petrolatum free. Packed with antioxidant-rich vitamin E, soothing shea butter and jojoba oil, eos keeps your lips moist, soft and sensationally smooth."

Wow, right? I really like this. It's totally something we should do a whole lot more often. Just be like a kid again. Yesterday because we're "grown up" doesn't mean we have to let go of those little things. And I think sometimes it's those little things, those little pleasures, and those little secrets that keep us happy, simple and joyful. Life is about the little things, so don't forget them!

It's that year-end tug-of-war: With so many priorities putting pressure on your cashflow—gifts! parties! resisting the temptation to buy stuff for yourself!—how do you set aside money for causes you care about?
We have two answers for you:
Make It Fun. Crowdrise, the brainchild of Hollywood producer Shauna Robertson ("Super Bad") and her partner Ed Norton, is like
a philanthropic Facebook designed to help you get a charitable life.
Join Will Ferrell and others: Set up your own giving page, pick your charities—or find your friends and join their causes—and use social networking to raise cash. (All the charities are 501(c)3 organizations; donations are processed through Network for Good.)
We like Millennium Promise and Invisible Children.
Think Small. There are more children living in poverty now, owing to the recession, new research shows—and the Tory
Burch Foundation aims to be part of the solution by providing microloans to working moms in the United States who want to start their own businesses.
You can donate directly or purchase one of Tory Burch's signature items; all profits benefit the foundation. And check out some of the entrepreneurs TBF has helped (like Cousin & Co., a handbag company in Brooklyn).
