A handy guide to some of the terrible things the Mail has printed since 1924.
This barely scratches the surface, though, I find it hard to believe they didn’t do anything terrible between 1956 and 1984.

and yet people still use it as a source
leftists from outside the UK still use it as a source
you all need to stop using the Daily Mail as a source FOREVER. Do not reblog, do not link, do not go to their site because they profit off ad traffic, and tell anybody you see doing any of these to immediately and permanently stop. We can’t run them into the ground but we can at least put a little dent in their profits and we can at least stop legitimising their bile by giving them anything other than negative attention.

That’s good to know.

Bring socks!!!!

As are toiletries!

Socks are extremely important! Homeless people wear out socks quickly because they are on their feet a lot and their shoes don’t always fit correctly or may not be in the greatest shape. Socks can be layered to keep the feet warm, they prevent blisters from walking around in poorly fitting shoes, they can even be used on the hands as gloves… It may be hard for those with homes to understand, but socks can make or break one’s quality of life when living on the streets.
For those who like donating to the homeless, I’d like to share an idea that makes making meaningful donations easier and actually kind of fun. We call them “bag parties”. (Usually it’s a group of women when we do it, so we call ourselves “The [my hometown’s Name] Bag Ladies”.)
Invite a group of people over to assemble immediately-use care packages for the homeless.
Ask each person to bring 10-15 small items for donation. Provide large ziploc bags and lay everything out in a kind of donation buffet. You can either sit around as a group and assemble bags together, or simply ask that each guest take a few minutes during the evening to assemble a couple of bags. Then at the end of the event, people can either take a few bags to keep in their cars and give to homeless people when they see them, or the entire lot can be taken to a shelter and distributed as they see fit. 
We usually ask that people spend less than $20, and they volunteer for the specific item they’d like to bring when they RSVP for the event. (Just to make sure we don’t get 25 packs of socks and no toothbrushes!)
Items in our bags include things like:

Packs of socksTravel-sized toiletries like:—-toothbrush, toothpaste, mouth wash strips—-sunblock (SUPER NECESSARY!!)—-shampoo (dry or regular)—-wet wipes and personal hygiene itemsCollapsible rain gear (hats. ponchos)Nutrition barsSmall towels (hand towel sized)First aid items (bandages, antibacterial cream etc.)Bus tokens and local bus schedulesLists of shelters and homeless resources

These care packages can change lives, and the individual cost to the giver is negligible. 
Just something to think about. =o)
