The Weinstein Company’s new documentary, Bully, isn’t an easy narrative. The film focuses intensely on a small handful of bullied students and their families—as well as parents of children who took their own lives after the abuse became too much to handle. It’s an important piece of a larger movement against a crisis facing youth and being met with varying degrees of indifference by many adults.
“Did you know 13 million kids get bullied every year? I support @BullyMovie. Let’s make it a trend:#BullyMovie.”

There are far too many issues people are indifference to, but this time people are joining forces and standing up to what’s wrong. Bullying is not a joke we must stand up for the victims, those who’s voices are silent, those who’s spark of life has been ripped away from them. Who are bullies to claim they’re better than others? Who are bullies to hold someone’s hope and faith in life? Who are bullies to criticize?
THIS MUST STOP. No matter where you’re from, what language you speak, how you look, we should all respect each other because at the end when all is stripped away, clothes, power status, materialism… we’re no different from one another. We have our vulnerabilities, our fears, we’re born and we’re all destined to die. We all share the same fate at the end, so tell me why should anyone get away with stepping and spitting on others?
Anything, everything that strikes a chord out of the ordinary. From little things that make me smile to the most outrageous, mind blowing talent/wonder out there.
I guess that summarizes to emotional triggers. From inspiring, encouraging videos to striking news around the world. Elements, events, places that ultimately make me more humble :D
FAST COMPANY: Can you tell us a little about Fifty & Fifty, and your involvement with Invisible Children? How did you get started?
JAVAN VAN GRONIGEN: We aren’t out to save the world, but to tell the world of those who are. At Fifty & Fifty, it’s our mission to see good causes take up more of the popular-culture space. We want to help do more than sell a product; we want to engage the world in the worthwhile. And because of this, we choose to work with people and missions that are socially and ethically defensible. To date we’ve partnered with clients promoting education, sustainable peace, political action, youth engagement, fundraising, and creative arts. And we’re just getting started.
I founded Fifty & Fifty two and a half years ago, after working directly for Invisible Children for three years. The reason was simple—there was a massive need in the nonprofit space for strong interactive that could both tell a story and encourage people to get involved. We had been doing that for years at Invisible Children; they were gracious enough to stick with us as we ventured out to offer our services to other humanitarian organizations and projects. Since then we’ve partnered with over two dozen other organizations like World Vision, Project7, Artists for Peace and Justice, and many more.

I’ve never ever tried kale before and after continuously reading it’s benefits from so many different sources, I finally decided to give it a try. So here’s my first kale recipe!
Taken from the vegan recipe book “Skinny Bitch by Kim Barnouin”
If you have peanut butter allergy, you can substitute with almond butter :)
• 1 large bunch of kale with hard spine removed and chopped
• 1 carrot julienned
• 1/2 cup (130gr) of peanut butter
• 1/4 cup (60ml) of water
• 2 tablespoons of tamari (soy sauce)
• 2 tablespoons of rice vinegar
• 1 tablespoon agave nectar
• Red pepper flakes, for garnish
• Sesame seeds, for garnished
Fill a steamer basket with the kale and carrot and steam over an inch of boiling water in a medium saucepan until the vegetables soften, about 5 minutes. Remove from the pan and transfer to a large bowl.
In a small bowl whisk together the peanut butter (It’s better to heat it up in the microwave for approximately 15 seconds to mix it better), water, tamari, rice vinegar and agave nectar. Toss the vegetables with the dressing until well combined. Garnished with red pepper flakes and sesame seeds.
And here’s the beauty :)
Hey! Thank you :)
What I did was to go to the “customize theme” option, go to insert pages and name each one. When inserting a page you have the option to link it to your tags, or a new blank page or any other url. I just linked it to specific tags.
Sometimes, depenging on the theme you’re using, you might not have the “Pages” option. Double check…and let me know if it works!

I thought I knew what was the best for me, but life has unexpected twists that leaves you speechless. I guess God does know what’s the best for you after all.
