Bring socks!!!! #homeless #donate #homelessness

As are toiletries!

I would also advice NOT to buy wool socks because yes, they are warm, but wool shrinks very easily, some people are allergic to wool, and wet wool is one of the most uncomfortable things in the world.
Thick cotton socks would be best, they’d last the longest and be the easiest to take care of and clean.

Cotton is best. Always cotton

I feel the need to STRESS the necessity of socks. For the event AMOK through Random Acts this year, we went to DTLA to pass out donations. At one point we basically ran out and some of us broke off from the group to buy some more items. We ended up at a convenience store that had two boxes of cotton socks. We bought them and as we were walking one man asked us if we had socks. And we said “Yes.” and gave him a pair and then suddenly we were surrounded by individuals all asking for socks. We were out of socks in a few moments. I can say from personal experience that socks were the most important article of clothing that they wanted.And as far as toiletries go, tampons. TAMPONS AND PADS. One woman was so excited, gracious, and thankful to receive tampons and pads, as it is a donation that seems to be overlooked. So please, of donations that could be given, while all articles of clothing and food and other necessities are more than welcome, socks and tampons and pads are largely needed.

Avril Lavigne, your apparent love for Hello Kitty may be genuine, but if you have any respect for the woman who designed her or for Japanese people and culture as a whole, it is not apparent in your song or accompanying video. Your lyrics are not only offensive to Shimizu Yuko, the creator of Hello Kitty, but to queer women who struggle daily with exactly the kind of objectification your song is presenting to your fans. Young queer women are already endangered by adult men who want to “conquer” them, who want to view them in private, natural and intimate acts, who want them to be nothing more than a form of entertainment, and the fact that you are coupling this in-song male-gaze driven storyline with a character designed for pre-adolescent girls makes your music a disgusting attempt to regain the popularity that you once had and never deserved. Your entire video perpetuates Japanese sterotypes, including, but not limited to, the “innocent” aspect of Japanese women; the robotic, passive persona of Japanese women; the “kawaii” aspects ingrained in their general culture; the vanity present in how Japanese women apparently present themselves; and so on. As someone who fights against cultural appropriation and for the basic rights of queer persons of all genders, your song and video made for mass media consumption have offended me and, undoubtedly, offended many others.

Good typography:

- only two fonts, with a clear purpose for each

- colour used sparingly, but effectively

- good use of size and negative space
