Pick My Class is an online platform that allows public school teachers to post projects online that they need help in funding. People, like you, can browse the projects and select one (or more) that you would like to help fund. Contribute anywhere from $1 up to the full amount of the project. When enough funds are raised, Pick My Class will purchase the materials and send them to the classrooms. From there, teachers and students benefit…all because of you! We know that people want 100% of their donation to go towards the cause to which they are contributing. At Pick My Class we are dedicated to ensuring the highest levels of transparency – we’ll show you where your money is going - All 100% of it.

And watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”—The Iron Lady (via quote-book) actually said it: Lao Tzu
I don’t understand how they think this is restoring religious freedom. It’s just giving employers the opportunity to exert their beliefs onto employees, completely stripping the employee of any religious or medical freedom. One’s religious beliefs and moral values should not have any standing or sway when it comes to providing fair and equitable healthcare for another human being.
Republicans need to stop focusing on creating legislation centered on morals and values and instead, focus their efforts on legislation that can help the economy, global relations or education. But what do I know, I’m just an unemployed teacher working at Starbucks because the economy is so fucking shitty and education budgets are as skeletal as Kate Moss.
When you go into a restaurant, please keep in mind that you are not a dictator of a third world country where everyone bends over and takes it from you. You are a person, just like your server. Your server is a human being with bills, a family, and even feelings.
