  •   capture.creativity Love to donate my clothes, and non perishables, try not to throw things away! Even recycling is giving back to the environment, the simple small things can make the most difference! @jessewald 7h
  •   ashleyhammm Donating clothes, volunteering at an animal shelter 5h
  •   wdubois I just try to look out for people/animals/places in my day to day. I find I come across people that need smiles, or directions, or food, or animals that need to be safely escorted away from a dangerous area, or need a warm place to sleep for the night.... Or just physical places that need tended to. I think always being aware of what small or big things I can do to make something or someone else have an easier time is how I give back. STATE has Lovely products, plus morals. Love them. 5h
  •   sharah_a Families in need! Like Babysitting for single moms going through the difficult transition of divorce. And being there for emotional support as well! 2h
  •   ric0shay My oldest sister is 26 years old and for all that time my mother has been an alcoholic. The first time i took a drink around fourteen, was the first time i blacked out.Five years later and there i was with the same amount of horror stories and broken relationships as i had nights with men and boys who had used me as if iwas completely disposable. I had no idea what it meant to love myself or live without substances. Eventually i finally got myself into so much trouble that i was facing felony drug charges. i could not belive my life, and most people would say i truly had lost everything. To my (and anyone that knew me) great surprise, this turned out to be the best event of my young adult life. For some reason...i finally got it. They say the eyes can see when they are unobstructed and the ears can hear. Many people told me it was like night and day. i attended Alcoholis Anonymous (alcohol eventually was NOT my substance of choice and i NEVER thought i would go there) After all alcohol is LEGAL...This was the first time i had been 100 percent sober since i started drinking. Never did it occur to me that my problems would go away when i stopped using, but now all of the sudden every part of my life got better. To cut it short i started to work the progam which meant listening instead of micromanaging. i started to speak at meetings and realized younger people listened..to me. it was so uncool to actually participate, this program was for old people (they had any excuse to belittle the program.) What we all had in common was broken lives, and here was a way out...I started bringing meetings to rehabs and speaking. i went to womens retreats. I finally learned that love is unconditional, not based on certain conditions i didnt qualify for. Today, I am 23 and know how to love myself, really love myself. I continue to spread the message and know 100% certainly there is happiness outside of addiction. You might have an idea of what AA is, but if you think anything bad, then those people aren't working a true program. Its basically like a karma program. You admit any bad behavior or way of thinking down to a grudge you held in 3rd grade, nd yiu 2h
  •   ric0shay and you mend it* you take accountability and you make amends so long as nobody is put in harms way. It is the most freeing process I think that is possible in this culture of cooperation and social stigmas. It teaches you that if you are in your head, helping someone will take you out of it spiritual NOT religious. I used to hate my hometown, and now I will always hold such a love that can never be replaced. Can't be grateful & hateful at the same time. 1h
  •   ric0shay (P.S. I competed my probation with 100% perfect program and they withdrew my guilty plea, taking away my felony) when you do the right thing, stuff like that mysteriously works out in your life.) 1h

jessewald My friends at @TOMS tagged me to help bring awareness to their #withoutshoes campaign.

Without Shoes is their biggest annual community initiative where they join together to go barefoot and raise awareness for kids health and education across the globe.

For 2015, they're excited to share that Without Shoes will have a giving component: For every person that posts a barefoot photo to Instagram with the hashtag #withoutshoes between May 5 and May 21, @TOMS will donate a pair of shoes to a person in need. It’s that simple - no purchase of shoes necessary.

Please join me by posting your own shoeless photo using #withoutshoes! #toms #tomsshoes #huntingtonbotanicalgardens @ihavethisthingwithfloors #ihavethisthingwithfloors

jessewald The thing I’m most afraid of is me. Of not knowing what I’m going to do. Of not knowing what I’m doing right now.
