Clothing Company Patagonia Donates 100% Of Black Friday Sales

There has been a lot of negative news this week showcasing what's bad in the world. From the Ohio State University attack to the Brazilian Soccer Team being on an airplane that crashed, its hard to see some positive. However, the outdoor Patagonia company showed us this Black Friday that there is still some good in the world. The company will be donating all of the sales they collected on this huge shopping day, all ten million of it.

Yvon Chouinard, founder of the company, started his dream, four decades ago. Since then, the main goal of the company, and it is even in their mission statement, is to "…use business to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis.” For the past thirty years, the company has donated one percent of sales to different environmental charities, and has even spent twenty million dollars helping other environmentally conscious business start up.They even help the environment by using recycled materials for their clothes! However, this year the company went even further in their movement to save the Earth. Patagonia agreed to donate one hundred percent of its sales this Black Friday to help the environment. What the company didn't know was that they would raise five times more then they expected to, and help small grassroots environment charities even more than they planned! Many people came out to purchase their first Patagonia item to help their mission and work with these small charities. Many of the charities that recipients of the donations are very underfunded in their fight for clean air, water, and soil. The difference that the money will make is astounding.

The company is also encouraging a pursuit in knowledge on the subject of the environment. They want people to look at the science behind all the natural disasters happening. Once there is knowledge on the subject, actions can be taken to slow down or stop what is happening. By working together, we can save the wildlife, stop global warming, protect wild environments, and learn how to re-use materials!

I would like to thank Patagonia for their actions in helping save the earth. Thanks to seeing you take this initiative, you have also gained a loyal customer.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
