Our mission at the Kids Being Kids Foundation is to improve the welfare and #development of the most #vulnerablechildren through play and extra-curricular activities.
A part of this is their physical #environment, which studies have shown profoundly influences developmental outcomes including academic achievement, cognitive, social and emotional #development.
One of the #vulnerable groups we want to support are the #Children of the Wesley School for the #hearingimpaired in Surulere. Their #landscaping is in dire need of a facelift.

🚨🚨NEW PRODUCT ALERT 🚨🚨 Because of #COVID19, many restaurants in the DC Metro Area came under enormous financial hardship. As a result, they could not sustain the private barrels that they had chosen. We were able to ease their burden by taking back their barrels. 1/10
That was difficult for us to do, but we decided to spin this hay into gold.  We created an "infinity barrel" with the barrel selections combined into a new whiskey blend, and that whisky is unlike anything you will ever see again!

March 17 2020: "#Gates has proved there is a far easier path to political power, one that allows unelected billionaires to shape public policy in ways that almost always generate favorable headlines: #charity."
"Describing his approach by turns as "creative capitalism" and “catalytic philanthropy," Gates oversaw a shift at his foundation to leverage "all the tools of #capitalism" to "connect the promise of #philanthropy with the power of private enterprise."

#Microsoft #Pharma
The #Gates Foundation has made over the last two decades, ...close to $2 billion in tax-deductible charitable donations to private companies—including some of the largest businesses in the world, such as #GlaxoSmithKline, #Unilever, #IBM, & #NBC Universal #Media."

Until I saw #COBRA trending, I had forgotten about this lovely bit of #Christian #charity from #moneygrubber #zootsuiting @JaySekulow.

I have mentioned being #fired by #Sekulow less than 5 hours after identifying myself to my employer, @ACLJ, as #gay.
You can read somewhat about that circumstance, and some of the reasons why you should scrub your whole body after shaking hands with #Sekulow can be found here:

threadreaderapp.com/thread/1221582…
But, as to #COBRA, when I was fired, @ACLJ and its greasy ca$h maniac, #Sekulow, was required by law to provide me with 90 days of access to my health insurance plan.

To purchase that insurance would have cost me approximately $1800.00 A MONTH.

With just over a month left in 2020, let’s talk about the #designtrends we expect to see in 2020. I’ve noticed, and this is usually the case, a larger focus on animation this last year. Flat, #material animation especially 2D characters. Also there has been an increased
Social media focus on “lesson” #Instagram style posts with multiple screens. Hell I tried it myself to see how I would go about doing it. The good thing about these types of posts is that they actually do contain some good info, but I think the trend has hit its peak now.
Next year, I suspect the design world will get more into simple #motiongraphics, perhaps even the multi-screen style static pages we have seen but shorter, more focused animated style typography based animations as the tech becomes more widely available through phones and tablets

Wow. I found a donor trying to give >£1m to delivery work in a certain sector. I also found*, and told them, that there's very little evidence about 'what works' in that sector. So they can't reliably fund delivery b/c nobody knows what to deliver. They'd better fund production…
2/ of research about what to deliver (& how). I connected them to some researchers. Now, 3 months later, they're starting a partnership to produce effective #research in that sector.

That entire intervention only took me about 2 hours. Rescued >£1m from almost certain fail.
3/ See: get your philanthro-advice from me: I know my game ;-)

*by using a @3ieNews evidence & gap map. (Which are a public good and hence hard to fund, but useful & consequential.)

#SecretsOfBronyCon #30: After the first @BroNYCon— BroNYCon June 2011— we led around half of the ~100 attendees a block or two to Madison Square Park for a group hangout session, including this photo by @JustKelly. A giant print of this photo will be in today's #charity auction!
@BronyCon @justkelly #SecretsOfBronyCon #31: Due to a lack of venue rules prohibiting food vending, at @BroNYCon September 2011 we were able to provide in-venue meals— pizza! We placed a massive order for pizza and sold meal tickets for a few dollars. This model was later backported to @BroniesNYC.
@BronyCon @justkelly @BroniesNYC #SecretsOfBronyCon #32: At first, BC lacked any dedicated computers. Con posters were printed on a laser at my job (though I brought my own cardstock & toner), and I used my work laptop for con work. I eventually bought a laptop with con funds, which was (somehow) controversial.

Since it's the last day of @BronyCon— ever— it's time for me to spill some #SecretsOfBronyCon— now declassified! Don't worry, Lunar Solis, I won't disclose anything that will harm the Organisation, any VIPs, other cons, or the fandom in general. This is just fun stuff!
@BronyCon #SecretsOfBronyCon #1: Did you know that I had originally planned on establishing a '@BronyCon West'... in San Francisco? Luckily, a few years later, @BABSCon established an amazing con with its own California flair in that very city.
@BronyCon @BABSCon (Side note: I'm pretty sure I would still have named the main mascot Golden Gates, or possibly Golden Gate, though knowing my lack of creativity she would have simply been International Orange with misty fog-like hair. BABS's take on the concept is much cooler!)

After the #MetPolice tried & failed to frame me & after ex #MetPoliceUK turned private investigators @Surelock_ tried & failed to frame me & my mum, attempt number 3 was #EE & #UKMail. I had never used @EE but they made me their customer

#SwitchtoO2 #o2 #Vodafone #Three #LBC
#EE said I had ordered mobile phones & sim cards & #UKMail said they had delivered them to me (with me showing my passport) at home. I did neither. I didn't order any mobiles & I didn't receive any mobiles. It was a complete stitch up

Alors, je vous présente… our findings about (1) what academic #research already exists about UK charities & #philanthropy and (2) the topics on which UK charities & donors say that they would like more academic #research.

(Thread)
#charity #impact #eval #impinv
2/ Combined, the results are a ‘gap analysis’ which can inform future research. Both studies were funded by @Charity_Futures, re its work establishing an Institute of Charity at Oxford University. But the findings can inform the agenda of any researchers in this terrain.

@tatatrusts pumped in Rs. 600 cr. in political funding this year. This is more than a 100% hike in funding since the 2014 election, where the entity infused Rs. 220 cr. Could these funds not be used to create #infrastructure instead? (1 of n)
When #Modi was voted to power in 2014, I had observed (and the observation continues to date) the stock markets got bullish despite the not-so-great macro economic parameters. When a #government gets funding of the sort @tatatrusts gives, it has to pander to such #corporates. (2)
It is the prerogative of each organisation/entity how it wants to dospense its surplus, but with monies of such quantum, wouldn't it have been more worthwhile to help regions in need of infrastructural & other basic needs like #healthcare in the form of #charity? (3)

My old school (an English public school - day fees currently £22,380 / yr, boarding £33,165 / yr), would like you to donate £595 because some of the pupils fancy playing chess outside. Don't worry, you can #GiftAid it.

#Charity
Now, it is probably disloyal or ungrateful or something but if you are paying over 20 or 30 grand per year to send your kid to school, you'd assume they could afford their own overpriced, oversized chess game. If not, why not just use a normal one? @Poundland probably have them.
But the thing that gets me is that, when I was there, they sort of instilled a sense of right and wrong and helping people that didn't have as much as you - charity was an important concept. However, we didn't raise money for bloody outside chess sets.

Thread alert!
My 6yrs recommending/declining funding applications for Children in Need has ended. I thought charity folks may find some of what I've learnt handy. Here are my 11 (everyone loves a freebie) tips. Just my observations, not the views of CiN or others...
@sccoalition
1. Know the funder. Don't apply for things they don't fund - that just wastes everyone's time (mostly yours). Read their website, guidance, ask questions if it's not clear what they fund. Don't risk the application you spent hours working on going straight into the 'no' pile...
2. Fit the funder to the project, not the other way around. In other words, don't find a funder & think 'what can we do that they would fund?'. Start with the project & then see who would fund that type of work...

It's a criminal offence to falsifying a legal instrument. But if the #MetPolice / #LBRUT do it, then there is not even an investigation. 12 years of silence. Evidence to prove it - ukcoverup.com/search-warrant-

Welcome to the #Metpolice who also changed & falsified my arrest details. Have a look at the evidence here ukcoverup.com/arrest-details as it's all easy to prove & that's why it's never addressed

The #legitimacy of any form of #government is not and cannot be based upon #consent, but upon how well it protects the rights of those who refuse to consent.
When the bullshit is stripped away, #Socialism is #theft, and can never be a moral form of political economy, because it cannot protect the rights of those who refuse to consent to the theft of their earned wealth. Those who do consent are not prevented under any other system…
from engaging in #voluntary #cooperative #ownership of #capital. Therefore, #Socialism is not defined by voluntary participation, but by #coercion, or #theft, a universal #moral harm. #Intent is not #magic. Good intent and good works do not and cannot excuse the theft.

I feel like this is an episode of #RickandMorty, but we have to do a sequel to first #TwitterStorm now with 280 characters. I will be going through this #GOPRiot where they loot middle-America. So the thread begins here. 1/?
Not that the #GOP cares about #DACA or #undocumented families. But they use #SEC11022 to not allow undocumented parents to receive a tax credit for their children. These is cruel unjust and unAmerican. 2/?
#Sec11023 With the language to repeal the #JohnsonAmendment contained in the house amendment they have allowed an increase of cash contributions to #Charity as a means to funnel the money to #GOP candidates in a tax free fashion. This is not what Jesus would do or want. 3/\?
