Powerful. Thought provoking. By 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in our oceans. Unless we GIVE A SHIT and do something. * Use less plastic. (Commit to it. Be mindful about it.) * Take 3 for the sea. (When you visit a beach, take 3 pieces of rubbish away with you. Take 3) * Start. (Just make one small change.)
#BREAKING (Please see our 3.30pm Update at top of our FB page).
There are officially no children seeking #asylum left in immigration detention centres in Australia!
This is a special day. All credit goes firstly to the brave mums and dads seeking asylum that protected & saved their children and stayed strong.
Secondly to the civil rights movement that is the refugee movement. Together we have made it politically and morally unacceptable in Australia to imprison children in detention centres. That's a huge victory for human rights and basic moral decency ❤️
(However, let's not get ahead of ourselves, the fight is far from over. Turnbull and Dutton have not suddenly found their moral compass just their political one in an election year.
There are still 50 children seeking #asylum imprisoned on #Nauru and over 2,700 men & 200 women still in barbaric detention centres in Australia, Manus & Nauru. We need Manus and Nauru detention centres shut down.
Also, don't forget also that Turnbull still wants to send 91 children here in Australia back to Nauru.
In addition there are over 30,000 people seeking asylum still in terrible uncertain limbo in the Australian community).
But just for today let's enjoy this wonderful victory together.
Let's take strength from this, this shows you how powerful we can be together when we stand for what is right and lead with compassion and justice. #KidsOut
HEALTH ALERT: Outbreaks of one of the most dangerous dog diseases have occurred across the country. And worst of all, it’s targeting our most vulnerable pets. Here’s all you need to know about Parvovirus and where it’s striking…
Parvovirus attacks the digestive system of dogs and if left untreated, will tragically kill 80% of those dogs that contract it. Signs including extreme lethargy, vomiting and severe, often bloody diarrhoea. Young, unvaccinated puppies are often most at risk with 158 cases currently recorded across the country.
The AVA (Australian Veterinary Association) is advising the current extreme hot spots to be: - Wagga Wagga, NSW - Tamworth, NSW - Mildura, Vic - Armadale, WA - Northampton, WA
If you’re worried, please check your dog’s vaccination status. Proper and current vaccinations are incredibly effective at preventing the virus. Please stay safe out there guys...

Need a bra... I own no bras. I went to Target to buy one, the one I want is $29? Fuck no.. Maybe next week I'm too broke for that. Goes upstairs and proceeds to collect $179 with of shit for the kids without batting an eye lid. There is something very wrong with this bra-less picture 👊🏼 Con
"I sit here at McDonalds, drinking a sprite. Okay, it's my third sprite. And the lady in the corner...waits. She's been here since before I got here. In walks a man with a small boy, maybe 3 years old if that. 'You were supposed to be here an Hour ago.' she says , slightly upset. 'Well I'm here and here he is.' The man turns to walk out the door. She says, 'Hey do you have a couple dollars so I can get a cheeseburger? All I have is enough for his happy meal.' He looks around to see if anyone is watching. 'Screw you, Starve.' He says and walks out the door. She just shakes her head and walks to the counter with the boy. She orders a happy meal for the boy. The teen at the counter tells her her card left a balance of 37 cents. She and the boy walk to her car where she digs and finds the change. She and the boy sit down with the happy meal, and she sets up his food and his tiny drink cup. She asks him if mommy can have a fry, to which he feeds her the one he just took a bite off of.(I kinda chuckled to myself.) I walk to the soda machine and refill my cup, Powerade this time. And the teen from the counter is refiling the napkins. I hand him my debit card. And tell him to give her 2 doubles and a large fry and a large drink on me. I tell him not to tell her its from me. I wrote a note on a napkin with my sharpie I use at work. "Keep your head up and always push forward. You CAN. You WILL. :)" He brings me my debit card. Then walks back to the counter and takes the tray of food to her. He says 'This was bought for you.' 'By who?' 'I'm not supposed to say, but it wasn't me.' He says and walks back to the counter. She reads the note on the napkin as tears start to roll down her cheeks. She fills the drink cup and starts to eat. The child trades her a chicken nugget, for a bite of the burger.(I chuckle again.) After they both finish their meal, they start to leave. They walk passed me sitting here and I smile at the boy and look at her and she whispers "thank you" I whisper back "for what?" She smiles. I wink. I look down at the boy and I say have a good day :) Life is hard. Always be willing to make someones life a little easier. Little things make a big impact. For any single parent stuck in a similar place... Keep your head up and always push forward. You CAN. You WILL."
