Free HIV Tests at Walgreens, Thurs-Sat
Check Greater Than or your local Wags ad for the details on free HIV testing at the end of this week.
As a couponer, I’d say that HIV tests are right up there with Colgate toothpaste and Yakisoba noodles as ‘things you should never have to pay for because you can always get them for free somewhere.’ Freebies come in all shapes and sizes, and occasionally with a little bit of fear. But you’d get the toothpaste, right?
I don’t even have to tell you why this is important or why you should support the Kickstarter to bring back Reading Rainbow; you know why. So go do it!
It’s been three weeks since nearly 300 Nigerian schoolgirls were kidnapped from their school dormitory. Activists in Nigeria and around the world have taken to the streets and social media to keep the pressure on the Nigerian government and world leaders to take immediate action to locate and rescue the missing schoolgirls. Because of these efforts, global leaders are beginning to take a stand.
Here are ways you can support the rescue efforts:
1. Sign the petition at Change.org and Women Thrive Worldwide to call on world leaders to act
2. Donate to the Bring Back Our Girls Emergency Project at Catapult,
3. Organize or attend a rally in your city via Bring Back Our Girls
4. Spread the word and post a photo using the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls
Together we can #BringBackOurGirls!
