Here’s How You Can Help Kids In Ferguson Who Don’t Have Food Now That School’s Closed

Outrage In Missouri Town After Police Shooting Of 18-Yr-Old Man

  The city of Ferguson, Missouri, has been thrown into the spotlight this week, as several questions remain unanswered regarding the fatal shooting of unarmed black 18-year-old Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson. But while the community grapples with controversy and tragedy, some are making sure to prioritize the city’s most vulnerable residents: its children.

  Ferguson-Florissant School District announced Wednesday that, due to safety and security concerns, classes would not resume for the school year on Aug. 14 as planned.  Many children in the U.S. eat their only meals of the day, breakfast and lunch, at school. With school out, kids are undoubtedly going hungry.

  If you’d like to support kids in Ferguson, visit the Fundly fundraising page.

ALL OF THIS MONEY WILL GO TO FEED KIDS IN FERGUSON. A dollar or a hundred dollars, it doesn’t matter. You will be helping to put food in the mouth of a child who needs it. Regardless of your opinion on the civil unrest in Ferguson, there is no need for innocent children to go hungry because of it.

Thanks Howlers!

Petition to Protect America’s Wolves

18 Aug
  • “Wolves do not purchase hunting licenses, and most state wildlife managers draw their pay from revenue derived from sale of hunting, fishing, and trapping licenses. That, in brief, is what is wrong with wildlife management in America”….Ted Williams, 1986

    Protect America’s Wolves!
    I signed a petition to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama which says:
    “President Obama and his first Interior Secretary, Ken Salazar, a Colorado rancher, adopted unjust and heartless “tea party” policies towards America’s wolves. And the U.S. Congress is equally guilty in this ecological and ethical injustice. Wolves are highly intelligent, native, and vital natural predators that belong on the land. Too many brutish ranchers and misguided hunters have unfairly demonized and maligned wolves for centuries. An American majority wants an end to demonization and massacre of America’s wolves and other native wildlife.”

City Harvest “Food Rescue” Program

6 Aug

Here at The e-Den, you expect to hear about Music, Radio Theatre, and Wolf Rescue. But in looking for a good cause in which to “give back”, we found City Harvest (Food Rescue).     So many restaurants throw away perfectly good food, right in front of people (often employees) who cannot afford to eat there and may be on foodstamps themselves.
Here’s more info from the City Harvest website;

City Harvest helps feed the nearly two million people who face hunger each year.

  • Rescues some 126,000 pounds of food each day.
  • Regularly give food to more than 500 community programs.
  • It costs City Harvest just 24 cents to rescue and deliver a pound of food.

In our first month, City Harvest served 55 community food programs in New York City. Today we help feed people at more than 500 programs. Our goal is to grow our operations to address the demand for emergency food.
