THIS MAN HAS ALS, AND HIS ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE WILL MAKE YOU LAUGH. THEN IT’LL MAKE YOU CRY

The video begins humorously as Anthony Carbajal, a photographer, dresses up in a neon bikini top and soaps up a car before being doused with ice water. 

So watch the full video here and laugh out loud at the first half and then get ready to tear up in the second half. 

I’m so grateful that this whole thing is actually making a difference. I chose not to dump water on my head due to the fact that California is in a terrible drought, and every little bit of water that we can conserve right now makes a difference - but I did donate to the cause. I knew very little about this disease before these challenges began popping up on my newsfeeds. It’s truly terrifying to think about. I hope that the money raised through these challenges makes a difference in the lives of ALS patients.

Pleased to announce the 30STMVOTE & This Is A Call To Arms VYRT giveaway!
We’re pretty sure you’re accustomed to this process by now since 30 seconds to Mars have used VyRT two more times. During the first VyRT (MARS300) I started a giveaway which with the help of the echelon all over the world became very successful. Then the second VyRT took place & the echelon helped once again. A Call 2 Arms, Echelon Donates & All Echelon Help were major supporters of this giveaway & with their contribution we gave away 130+ VyRT tickets. They will be supporters in this project as well!
In this VyRT, to celebrate the 10 years of MARS in all their glory, me & Katie (founder of This Is A Call To Arms) decided to launch this giveaway together so we can give away even MORE tickets for all the people who are unable to purchase a digital VyRT ticket for serious reasons.
How do you take part in the giveaway?
Simple as always, you fill this online form.
How do you donate?
Since we don’t have any “official gifting guide” to follow for now, we would like you to paypal us the money ($9.99) [sorry for using paypal as a verb!] at this email:  vyrtgift@thisisacalltoarms.com & we will purchase the tickets & deliver them to the winners.
We’d like you to add your Twitter name [or just your name if you don’t have a Twitter] to the subject of the email so we can add it to our Thank you card in the end.
ALSO: When the gifting option is available, we may change the way we accept donations but that’s the least of your concern now. Please do as we described & you’re all set :]
What else should I know if I donate?
We can’t really explain how grateful we are that you donate in this cause & help out an echelon friend. So, to show our gratitude somehow - we’ll give away a VYRT book (courtesy of This Is A Call To Arms) to a lucky donor at the end of this VYRT giveaway!
The process of this giveaway will be slightly different this time. We won’t be announcing all the winners at the end of the giveaway. Instead, we’ll be giving away a few tickets every two days or so. We faced a serious problem the last time because many winners never answered back to our message telling them that they won so we had to cast new winners! This wasn’t easy & it truly took much personal time & patience from my part.
I am willing to help as many as possible because I know (after reading several echelon stories) that for some people the VyRT ticket is not “just a click away”. So with the help & support of many echelon worldwide, I believe we can giveaway even more tickets this time! Now this is me just being optimistic but fingers crossed.
Where will the giveaways take place?
The giveaways will take place in Twitter, Tumblr & Facebook, meaning that’s where we’ll be announcing the winners.
Please follow:
@30STMVOTE & @ACall2Arms in Twitter
& reblog this post because we may as well give away a few tickets to some of the people who did so. Following this blog is not necessary but it’s always welcome ;]
Thank you all so much for reading this, I know it’s a long post but this has become even bigger than we expected so in order for this to work well we need to have more rules. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. Let’s celebrate this beautiful decade that MARS gave us.
If you have any questions, you know where to find us!
Peace out, Sophie X

Congress: Show Your Support for Wind Energy!

Members of Congress continue to delay renewing the Production Tax Credit — an important financing provision for wind energy. Every day of stalling means more American jobs are in jeopardy. Already, wind turbine orders for next year are drying up, creating a crisis where layoffs are…

Human Feelings as Drugs

I’ve realized I had been witnessing for a long time a lack of feelings, those feeling that are at the base of human interaction, cooperation and well-being generally.
Although good human interactions and feelings always find a way to be expressed, the hectic lifestyle we are immersed in makes things more difficult, and the high stress levels sometimes lead people to find recovery using medications, pain-relief drugs and so on…
The high street market offers a complete range of drugs that should help people recovering from a huge variety of illnesses and their symptoms… but what if those symptoms were only a lack of satisfaction on a spiritual level?
I have created a series of alternative medicines, vials that contain concentrated amounts of human feelings and ways of interaction such as Love, Empathy, Peace…
I wish they could really work!…but my aim is to show them as a reminder of what sometimes are the only necessary things to live a better and brighter life.
