Duty of Care: Protecting Children in War

The scenarios in this innovative, gaming-style video are drawn from real-life testimonies of children in War Child’s projects across Africa and the Middle East, who have witnessed and experienced the most unacceptable violations to their rights.

The HELP campaign is urging reform in the humanitarian system which currently neglects the needs and rights of children in war.

Groceries Not Guns

Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America:

Our new ad shows how Kroger policies are inconsistent and alarming – particularly given that the laws in a majority of states do not require a background check, permitting or even training to open carry a firearm. In all states, businesses have an obligation to protect their employees and patrons and until Kroger steps up, Moms will put our money where our mouths are and shop at stores that put our safety first like Safeway and Alberstons.

Kroger needs to know that their refusal to act is costing them money as Moms take our grocery shopping elsewhere. Now we’re keeping track of all the money Kroger is losing to its gun sense competitor and with the help of our supporters, we will create the World’s Longest Receipt.

Save The Beaches


Dudes and dudettes help save the beaches!

“The world’s beaches are disappearing!
If we don’t act now, 90% of them could be gone by 2100.

Disturbing climate change, irrational coastal development and heavy coastline modification are to blame: sea level rise, extreme weather patterns, excessive concreting on our beaches, port expansions and sand plundering are all threats to our favorite sand banks.

Without even knowing it we are slowly endangering what we love the most. Because beaches are not eternal, we must protect them now.

Surfrider Foundation Europe has been lobbying at local, national and European levels. Our goal? To ensure that EU States sign a worldwide ambitious climate agreement that will truly consider the coastline – and those who enjoy its valued resources, in coastal management planning.

Time to turn things around! Your voice is critical to the future of our beautiful beaches. Please help us defy all odds and sign our pledge now!”
