3 Issues everyone Should Be aware of.

Here listed below are three causes that every American should be aware of and should be helping to do something about. You can click on the links in each paragraph to help make a difference in these people's life. I hope that while reading this you will help these people who need you.

1. Flint, Michigan

Did you know that in 2014 Flint, Michigan was ordered to stop drinking their tap water due to contamination by lead. It has been 4 years and they still must drink only bottled and filtered water. It is assumed that it must be that way for another two years. There has been a total 15 deaths and thousands of citizens have been contaminated. You can help by donating any amount here.100% of all donations will be used for water filters and water bottles to be given out to the people of Flint.

2. Puerto Rico

Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico September 20, 2017. Now today the effects are still rampant on the island. There is a total of 90 billion dollars worth of damages and thousands are still without power and clean drinking water. The island is a US Territory so they depend on us to survive, but unfortunately, we have stopped; they are now looking to the citizens to help. You can donate here. This website also will give 100% of donations to the people of Puerto Rico. They use the money for power generators, bottled water, etc. They have already helped 6,000 people, but need your help to help more.

3. Immigrant Children

Towards the end of May, 2018 the US Government have ceased thousands of undocumented citizen's children. They are holding the children at the border of Texas in cages. Recently Glenn Beck announced that he would go to Texas and give those children food, blankets, etc. Many Republicans were angry about this. I hope that everyone who is reading this realizes that it is not the children to blame for entering this country illegally. Their parents believed that this would be a better life for their kids. I hope that when deciding to donate you will keep the children in mind. You can donate here. This religious organization will house the children and will feed them as best as they can.

Don't stop by just donating; spread the word about these two causes. If you can't donate spreading the word is a great way to help. Spreading the word will not only allow more people to donate, but it will also show Puerto Rico, Flint, and the Immigrant Children that we have not forgotten about them and that we are doing something to help them. Share this article, send the links to all your contacts. Just know that you talking about these causes can save a life.

As any other person on this planet, it sometimes can be hard to find the good in things. However, as I have always tried my hardest to find happiness in any and every moment and just generally always try to find the best in every situation, I have realized that your own happiness is much more important than people often think. Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media.

I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
