31. Save Aston's Pharmacy

Aston Pharmacy is under threat of closure, Aston is a very special pharmacy serving a large residential estate in Newport pagnell, Astons provide a very personable service not common to the average chemists such as Boots or Lloyds, These people care, I began to use this chemists a year ago and they do thing differently, They care, They help, They give effective advice, They go that extra mile.

Now they face closure because they are not meeting their expected profit margins.
We face losing a very special shop the likes of which are rare and destined never to be seen again.

Help us SAVE ASTON'S PHARMACY.

32. Help Save the Backfire cafe

Help save the Backfire Cafe! This is a small cafe outside the turn off to Edgewood.

It is also the only place to get actual decent food between Nakusp and Cherryville on a Sunday at 5! And often other times. It is run by a mother and two daughters. It was closed for a bit because the mother had severe medical issues (she actually died a couple times and was brought back), who lives in a tiny trailer behind the cafe during the summer. The daughters are hoping to get through college, not to mention they make rum and butter milkshakes!

Please sign and stop the government from shutting down yet ANOTHER small family business!

33. Save Patty Yuan

Patty Yuan is an amazing early childhood educator and this is our support toward helping her get her work visa renewed.

This will enable us to get Patty back at work to continue to provide the stability and development support that our children need.

Patty makes a very real difference to our children's lives. Patty's effortless warmth and positivity, as well as her natural childcare skills and experience makes her a very rare breed. She genuinely cares and engenders happiness and confidence both in the kids in the centre, and in their parents and extended families.

Patty constantly goes the extra mile in all aspects of her work, from organising centre community picnics for the families, to organising parties and gifts for kids birthdays at her own expense, to working long hours always with a genuine smile and more.

34. Save the footpaths of Hanwell

There is a frequently used public footpath running across the public open space known as Warren Farm School Sports Centre which has its main entrance in Windmill Lane, Southall UB2.

The footpath runs from the main entrance to Warren Farm School Sports Centre in Windmill Lane, Southall UB2, along the tarmacked road and then eastwards across Warren Farm to the 5-bar gate on the north eastern edge. An established path then leads over a level crossing with the Brentford Branch railway line, into Jubilee Meadow, over the Grand Union Canal at lock 97 and into Hanwell via Green Lane.

Please see the map.

The footpath is marked in red with the end points marked with red and green pins.

This footpath is regularly used by many people to get;
  • from their homes in Windmill Lane, Wolsey Close, Norwood Green and Southall to their places of work at Waterside Trading Centre, Hanwell and Ealing.
  • to access the Grand Union Canal for leisure and exercise walks
  • to get to the Hanwell Carnival or Brentford Festival.
  • to get from Norwood Green to The Fox pub in Green Lane, Hanwell
  • to get to the Health Centres in Hanwell
  • the shopping centres of Hanwell or Ealing.
  • From Hanwell people use the footpath as part of a circular exercise walk to Osterley Park
  • to access The Plough Inn on Tentelow Lane
  • Children from Hanwell also use the path to access the horse riding stables next to Warren Farm.
  • To attend Church at St Thomas’ Church on Boston Road
  • To attend Church at St Mellitus’ Church on Uxbridge Road, Hanwell
  • To attend Church at St Mary’s Church, Norwood Green

The footpath has been used for a minimum of 25 years and by many families for much longer than this.

According to the 'Highways Act 1980' this footpath must be dedicated for public use because it has been freely used by the public for more than 20 years.

35. Save Beech Hill Farm Storage, Westerleigh, Bristol BS37 8QF

Beech Hill Farm, Westerleigh, Bristol BS37 8QF, have been providing storage facilities to the local community and surrounding local area for more than 9 years.

With high waiting lists at other facilities this is a much needed resource for the local area.

The facilities compliment the surrounding countryside and wildlife that have clearly made their home and they happily coexist.

The land its self is unable to be used for agriculture purpose, because of the previous landfill use. The owners have made use of the land and provided a much needed resource for the community.

36. Save our Assistant Principals!

We are writing to you on behalf of numerous concerned parents whose children attend eight different Elementary Schools in Baltimore County, Maryland. Just a few weeks ago, our parents became aware of a change in Baltimore County Public Schools (BCPS) policy which negatively impacts almost every aspect of our children’s education.

In short, the Baltimore County Board of Education has arbitrarily decided that elementary schools with fewer than 350 children will no longer be staffed with an Assistant Principal (“AP”). Some schools are currently projected to have 348 students next year, or other numbers just under 350 and so we have been advised that our school will not have an Assistant Principal starting the school year 2015-2016.

Eight elementary schools in this county will be affected by the Board’s new policy. We are being told that the Baltimore County Board of Education plans to ‘replace’ the AP position with one .5 (1/2 time) special education “Facilitator.” The Facilitator will be responsible for assuming the AP’s duties as they pertain to children who have Individual Education Plans (“IEP’s”), and the Facilitator’s salary will be paid through a special grant - not out of Baltimore County’s budget. Who will cover the remaining duties and responsibilities of the Assistant Principal? Baltimore County’s answer to this issue to is train and reassign the job duties of teachers and other staff members over the summer to ‘cover’ the remaining AP duties. We fervently believe that this plan is destined to fail and will leave our school in an alarmingly vulnerable state; jeopardizing the safety of our children and negatively impacting the quality of their education. We cannot expect already overwhelmed teachers and school staff to pick up these responsibilities. With everything that is changing in the school systems and curriculum, it would be a terrible decision to require even more from them.

Why can’t the .5 facilitators be sent to the schools that need assistance? Why can’t they create other positions to be funded under this grant to help these schools? What research was done that backs up this decision? There are many unanswered questions and uncertainties’.

It is of particular importance to note that our schools were not advised of this new policy until well after the Board of Education held its scheduled “open forum” meeting. In fact, despite the fact that this policy decision was made by the Board approximately 5-6 months ago, our school community was only notified of it the first week of February - just ONE DAY prior to the scheduled Board of Education meeting. This short notice left not only our community, but other affected school communities, with absolutely no time or opportunity to process the consequences of this policy change, let alone prepare statements and voice our concerns to Board members at the scheduled meeting. This insufficient notice and apparent intentional lack of transparency on the part of BCPS is alarming, disappointing, and frustrating. They have not lived up to their philosophy of transparency.

Every school should have two administrators- a Principal and an Assistant Principal. They are the two most critical roles in the school system and the quality of our children’s education is at risk here. No school should have to operate without an Assistant Principal.

Baltimore County needs to be investing in the future of our children – not cutting costs by eliminating essential staff. Our schools have made many sacrifices as a result of Baltimore County budgetary restrictions, but this new policy is one that we cannot accept – the stakes are too high. As parents, community members, school members and educational leaders, we feel betrayed, pushed aside and disregarded. This decision should not have been made in secret, without more careful consideration of the ramifications or the input of the community, schools affected and parents.

37. Let's save Tris Prior

Veronica Roth offered us one of the best books ever, the divergent series, which has been loved by all kind of people all over the world!

She gave us an interesting and original story which is all about love,being brave, being intelligent, being selfless, friendship, being kind, family and fighting for our beliefs. She gave us the most perfect characters ever, tris prior and tobias eaton aka four, with whom we fell inlove during the books, and to make it even better, she made the best couple in the cinema history!

All we divergent fans over the world fell in love with fourtris, tobias, but the best character by far was tris! she was the definition of how people should be! We loved her more and more through every page of the book we read, and then , at the chapter 50 of allegrient, when I was like ''and now everything is gonna end and tris will marry tobias and have the cutest family ever'' like thousands of other fangirls, the worst thing happens. Tris, our beloved tris, dies, just like that she dies.

I can tell you that at that moment a million divergent fans all over the world were crying , because tris wasnt just a character from a novel. She was way more. My love for her cannot be expressed in worlds. So the reason i am making this petition is to tell divergents producers not to kill tris in the third movie, because billion of fans will be dissapointed and the movie wont sell a lot. this is all I had to say.

38. Save the Snowflake Babies

UPDATE - Amy Adams has advised that she is not able to intervene as Minister of Justice and that the appeal will have to be put before the NZ Parliament to change the HART Act. This petition will therefore be added to an application to the NZ Government.

On November 22nd 2014, 2,000 NZ children, frozen as embryos, are to be destroyed over the following year. This action is in accordance with the HART Act of 2004 in NZ, which prohibits them being kept any longer in frozen storage facilities without ethical approval. Their lives will be ended unless some intervention is carried out. They are also not protected from scientific experimentation under NZ law.

I have been in dialogue with my MP Jaqui Dean who has sent my concerns to Dr Johnathan Coleman, the Minister of health, who has in turn written to the Minister of Justice Amy Adams. She has recommended a course of action to bring the matter before the NZ Government.

The HART clinics have been working with the department of Health to contact parents. Time is running out for these little lives to be saved before November 22nd.

Only a ministerial action can intervene to stop their destruction in time.

39. Save Luke: Stop the US Government from Letting Him Suffer and Die

For many (TOO MANY) years now, Jeddidiah Luke Crowsey would have been dead, if he had not fought with all his strength to stay alive. He ran out of strength, and his government continues to deny him help. He cannot cope if his health gets ANY worse. If he does not get help BEFORE it gets ANY worse, nothing that can be done will matter. He suffers from THE REAL VERSION of those "anxiety attacks" that cop-out nobodies like to lie about. AND BECAUSE SO MANY LIED PREVIOUSLY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF A SYSTEM THERE WAS TO SAVE LIVES he is denied help. That and his AGE. He has been told MORE than twice in denial letters, that the government officials with authority to save his life "Feel at his age, with his problems you could work enough hours to support yourself."

Their opinion does not change reality and now, in reality, Luke lives EVERY DAY with breath just low enough to suffocate on GOOD days, and lives in suffering fear of anxiety attacks that could take the last of his very limited precious oxygen, because they keep denying him.

Luke was afraid to make this petition. To stop talking in the third person finally, I only didn't want to make this petition because I was afraid that ASKING for help, instead of someone else asking FOR me, would make me look like another person taking advantage of the system, and if that happened, I would AGAIN be denied, and still die. I was hoping one day, someone would make this petition FOR me, because I lived in constant fear that doing it myself would have the world ignore it, the same way I'm ignored now.

But my illnesses are not fake. My terror is not fake. And I am so afraid of dieing, I finally went against my fears, just because this is the last chance I may have. I'm too scared not to try. That fear is my honesty. I don't want to die. Signing THIS petition ONLY MEANS you are PUBLICLY PUTTING YOUR FOOT DOWN that you

"WILL NOT LET YOUR GOVERNMENT TAKE YOUR TAX DOLLARS AND LET YOUR GOOD FRIENDS DIE!" So please, tell American government they DO NOT get to let me die. THE PEOPLE DO. So I'm begging the people. My favorite hobby is video games and good samaritan work, but I dont do much of those things any more, because I can barely breath. SOMEONE TELL THE USA GOVERNMENT THAT THEIR OPINIONS OF ME DON'T MATTER, and that their people WONT TOLERATE them letting me die.

EVERYONE who knows me personally, knows how loving and sick I am. (AND MACHO.) I never would petition this, if it did NOT mean, I would MORE THNA LIKELY quickly die, if I dont get help. Living WITHOUT the help is such suffering, is that any better?

Help take away Jeddidiah Luke Crowsey's suffering. Tell your government they do not get to let him die.

Tell American Government that the people make the choices, and NOT them ALL alone. Tell them YOU DON'T WANT them to LET Luke die, (THEY ARE DOING THAT!) and that's WHAT MATTERS. Because if a miracle OR some kind of intervention by POWERFUL PEOPLE is not done SOON, Luke may not have much longer. The worst part is, surviving like this is so much worse than death. I am in horrible terrible suffering. They won't let me stop suffering. I don't want to die, and I don't want to suffer.... They keep letting it happen.

Tell the American Government that the people do not like them letting those who are legitimately in need of help, to suffer. Tell them. If enough of you don't, they will continue to let me suffer to DEATH. I cannot combat this forever. I am so afraid.... I REFUSE to go to a street corner and beg for money for my meds. And the amount of time I can walk and talk is too limited to provide for myself. I'm ashamed, but more terrified than ashamed now, so I am too afraid not to ask for help. I will not beg on street corners for other people's hard earned pocket cash. But I will ask for help from a system MADE TO HELP THOSE WHO NEED IT.

I need it, and they are refusing the necessity, and I AM CONTINUING TO SUFFER as long as THEY make the decisions, AND NOT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE! SHOW THEM THAT YOU PEOPLE OWN THIS COUNTRY, NOT JUST THE RICH AND POWERFUL! Tell them the masses don't like me being let to die. AND THE MASSES OF AMERICANS OWN THIS COUNTRY, NOT JUST THOSE WHO ARE VOTED INTO GOVERNMENT! This is YOUR country, DON'T LET THEM LET ME DIE.

40. Get The Voice to Allow us to Save contestants without using a Twitter Account

I'm really tired of not being able to save my favorite artists on The Voice because I don't have a Twitter account. That is really unfair!

I think saving should be available on nbc.com so everyone can vote to save. It's not fair that everyone can vote the night before the results but only people with Twitter accounts can save artists when they are in the bottom 3.

If you agree with me on this, please sign.

Thanks!

41. SAVE 140 ELMSLEY

Quoting Councillor Shawn Pankow
April 15th/2014

"After about three years of debate, it appears the wrecking ball is headed for the home at 140 Elmsley Street. The property was bought years ago by the previous council with the intention of tearing it down and expanding the parking lot for the new Memorial Centre.

In 2011, it was suggested by a former building inspector that the building was actually in very good condition, contained some beautiful heritage elements and was really too good to tear down.

With demands for space at town hall, council decided to repurpose it as a new location for the Chamber of Commerce and a Welcome Centre. The cost for this was estimated at $35,000, or not much more than the original $30,000 estimate for demolition.

Discussions with the Chamber dragged on causing a delay in that plan and eventually, with the police moving out of the municipal complex, there was no longer a need to move the chamber.

The building was properly winterized in 2011 but for unknown reasons (staff involved are no longer employed by the town) proper precautions were not taken in 2012 causing damage to the hot water heating system and plumbing. The new projected cost for repairs soared to about $87,000, including a completely new HVAC system and ductwork and restoration of the original two storey porch on the front. However, many of the repairs are cosmetic and the extent of the damage is not yet known. Much of the house has already been re-wired and a new 200 amp breaker panel has been installed.

A divided Council deferred any final decision on it in 2013 and there is no money in the 2014 budget for renovations or demolition. It appeared council had agreement at the time of the budget passing that we would sell it, but that no longer appears to be an option.

I have been in the building and have renovated old homes in the past. It is a beautiful old home that could serve many purposes. It would be a shame to tear it down and I would prefer council find a new purpose for it. I had suggested it could be a home for the Centre for Youth but they would prefer to use the hall in the Youth Arena (something council will have to discuss in the near future).

Some members of council are reluctant to have it as a family home once again as they would have no control over how that area would look. Although, our property standards bylaw would have influence over the site.

Perhaps the zoning could be changed to commercial and it could be turned into a nice office. Yes, commercial taxpayers pay about double the tax we collect for residential properties. Perhaps it could be given to a charity or not-for-profit and made into something that will contribute back to the community for decades to come.

The majority of council - Mayor Staples and Councillors Brennan, Cummings and Graham have all stated they want it torn down and the site turned into green space. However, with a $30,000 cost of demolition plus a number of trees to be cut down and stumps to be removed along with the other landscaping required to turn this area into a park, I assume the total cost will be around $50,000. With no money in the budget, I'm not sure how this will be paid for.

The building has sat vacant for years and once it is gone, there is no bringing it back. I don't understand why there is such a rush now to tear it down and create that large of an out-of-budget expenditure when leaving it for now leaves the door open for all possibilities.

All of this on the same evening The Hub approaches council looking for additional financial support for "our" community pool. I wonder if members of council will be as anxious to provide the additional support needed here as they are to spend $50,000 to tear down this classic old building?"

42. Prevent Physical Books From Ever Going Out Of Print

People of the world, do not let the future take away our books. It is a growing issue as the planet advances. E-books are the new thing and therefore less and less phsyical books are being sold. Soon they will be extinct.

Help me prevent this from ever happening! Physical books are a tradition, they are real and beautiful. Help me keep them alive!

43. Save the Sharks! Stop the Cull!

There are more than 465 known species of sharks living in our oceans today. They are an apex predator near the top of the marine food chain, and they regulate the populations of species below them.

Research has shown that massive depletion of sharks has a cascading effect throughout the ocean’s ecosystem.

The fact that shark species are so diverse and inhabit every ocean on the planet makes them key players essential to the ocean environment. Yes they are a dangerous animal – but we need to remember that we are swimming in THEIR homes. We are in THEIR territory.

Sharks kill 10 humans a year, which although this is devastating, research has shown that these deaths are simply a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. It has been proven that the majority of sharks will mistake a human for food, take one taste and realise their error – swimming away without even a second thought. On the other hand, humans kill 100 million sharks a year, purely out of fear. We are not the enemy! And as a matter of fact, the chance of being killed by a shark is one in nearly 300 million. According to statistics, you have more chance of being killed by a pig!

The bottom line is, the effects of removing sharks from ocean ecosystems, especially in such large numbers, although complex and rather unpredictable, are very likely to be ecologically and economically damaging.

Save our Sharks! Stop the Cull!

44. Don't Deport Justin Beiber

Justin Bieber has done many good things here in America. He has supported multiple Charities and foundations which include but are not limited to Alzheimer’s Association, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, City of Hope, Cure Duchenne, Food Bank For New York City, Give Back Hollywood Foundation, Grammy Foundation, It Gets Better Project, Jumpstart, KaBoom, Musicians on Call, Pencils of Promise, Red Cross, Usher’s New Look Foundation.

You can find more information on this at www.looktothestars.org/celebrity/justin-bieber Justin Bieber may not be perfect, but who is? He worth having in America.

Justin Bieber is a good individual who deserves a second chance. Justin Bieber took time on Valentines day to visit a 6 year old child with a rare form of cancer. He flew her and her family to New York and spent two hours with them. You can read more about this at www.digitaljournal.com/article/319702

Justin often visits children from the make a wish foundation, where they help children with terminal illnesses. He visited a school that supports homeless children in Las Vegas and donated $100,000 to them for school supplies and food. He also donated an additional $100,000 for toys for the kids not only did he donate to the school but he performed an acoustic of “Under the Mistletoe”.

You can read about this and so much more on www.march1st.tumblr.com. He has done so much to help people not only here in America, but also in other countries too. He is an great asset to the United States of America.

If I were to write about all of the inspiration, and love and compassion he has shown towards his fans then this request would be endless. He has been a blessing to many people lives and his music has touch many many lives for the good.

I believe he deserves a second chance.

45. Legalize the most useful plant on the planet

A few decades ago, the most useful plant on the planet was criminalized with absolutely no evidence to back up the reasoning for it to be criminalized.

This plant absorbs carbon dioxide while it grows; reducing the carbon footprint that we-as humans-leave for the future generations. This plant also absorbs harmful radiation.

This plant can be used to make paper, fabrics, building supplies, plastics, fuel, and many other things that are useful to mankind and is a renewable resource. This plant is also the most nutritious food source available. The human body maintains a balance of Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 9 fatty acids at a ratio of 1:1:2 to function properly. This plant is the only plant in existence that maintains that ratio and is also a great source of fiber.

Within this plant there are compounds very similar to the ones found in breast milk that aid in proper brain and social development in children. The compounds in this plant have been proven to prevent cancer when ingested and to cure cancer when these compounds are concentrated and ingested in high volumes.

There has never been a death or instance of overdose documented in association with this plant or any concentrate derived from this plant.

46. Save DeYulio's Sausage Co.

DeYulio's Sausage Company is a 3rd generation family business, that survived through the recession only to be put out of business by the City of Stamford evicting us. The City of Stamford took our property via eminent domain and began the eviction process back in 2012.

In December, 2012 we signed a lease to move to a building in Stamford, CT; however, the building needed repairs that the landlord could not do. So the lease was cancelled and we began hunting for new property. We found a building in Bridgeport, CT and began the process of purchasing it in the spring of 2013. In June, 2013 we signed a contract with the City of Stamford that said we would be out by December, 2013, in order to hold off on the eviction process.

The bank we were working with had us jumping through hoop after hoop and strung us along, until the last hour when they denied the loan based on environmental factors on the property.

We immediately went to another bank, and they are going to be loaning us the money for the property. We should be closing on the new facitlity by the end of the year. Then we would need 6-8 weeks for renovations. When we asked the City of Stamford for an extension until March, they were unwilling to give it to us. On Tuesday we asked the courts to give us the extension, and on Thursday, 12/19/13, the judgement came down denying the extension. Friday morning, 12/20/13, we were served with eviction papers to be off the property by this Monday, 12/23/13, @ 8am.

If they evict us we will have to close down because we do not have anywhere to go. Our 20 employees will be laid off & unable to support their families right before the holidays. Our business has been located in Stamford, CT since the early 1900's, when my great-grandparents had a market where they manufactured their own sausage in the back. Then in the 1960's Urban Renewal caused the City of Stamford to take the property they were on via eminent domain, and we were moved to our current location; only to have eminent domain happen a 2nd time.

We are asking for the publics help to pass this along to as many people as you can in the hopes that if we get enough signatures maybe the City of Stamford will change their minds or our local representatives will help us stay in business, and stop the layoff of 20 employees right before the holidays.

47. Help Save Tillys Temptations & Celebrations

Helen, owner of Tillys Temptations & Celebrations lives in close proximity to Market Drayton and previously ran her business from home. She decided to make a move into town and showcase her business further. She decided to use the Pop-Up shop now known as Buttercross Village for this.

Since opening her shop, she has received criticism from the council for not opening all 5.5 days of the pop-up opening week and has also been accused of writing an untoward message on her facebook profile (this was not the case), and has been asked to leave the pop-ups. She has been served notice and has till the end of the month.

Helen also has a disability that can sometimes imit her ability, but still wants to bring her business into the town and she have been able to use the popup to do this. The council are wrong to treat her the way the did.

Please help support this lovely local lady and lets keep her business thriving.

48. Save Penshaw Village Hall

Penshaw village hall has been around for many years now. The current hall has only been here for 17 years but a hall in the village has been there for a long time.

The developers have decided they are going to build houses over the land. This would tear the village apart nd we think with alot of people backing us they'll stand down!

49. SAVE OUR SPORE

Recent data has implied that EA will be shutting Spore's servers down on 1/1/14. Comrades in arms, we must protest this at once! If we can get 15% of all Spore users, that's accounts, EA has to reconsider.

Share this with everyone in Spore, and help save our game!

50. Save Toontown!

On August 20, 2013, Disney announced the closure of their most famous MMORPG, Toontown.

This petition is to prove to them that toons around the world value and see Toontown as more than just a silly kid's game.

Toons of the world, we must unite to save our town!

51. Save Metro Cottage

The local council has indicated they don't want a commercial enterprise on park land. They have decided to demolish a building - No 1, Cornish Street, Payneham, Adelaide.

This property butts onto a dog friendly park. We want to open a CAFE in this location, that targets dog owners.

Two kindergartens (commercial entities) and a communal veggie patch also butt onto the parklands as well as a community hall /function centre which is rented out.

52. Save the animals and our planet!

Animals around the world have been dying because of human pollution and cutting down trees. Right now we are on the verge of destroying the world because of our carelessness.

We need to make a difference! We cant live much longer if we keep on overproducing so rapidly. We need a change in society now or never.

53. Save Royal Glamorgan Hospital

Welsh Government-backed cuts to the Royal Glamorgan hospital in Llantrisant could stop treating the most serious accident and emergency cases as part of a major NHS shake-up in south Wales.

The plans involve removing from the Royal Glamorgan:

Consultant-led maternity care (obstetrics)
Specialist baby care (neonatal)
Specialist children's care (paediatrics)
Emergency medicine (A&E)

54. The Face of Surfers Paradise Tourism

The Surfers Paradise Metermaids have been a most recognised icon of Surfers Paradise and the Gold Coast for the past 49 years, celebrating all Surfers Paradise has to offer - its beaches, bikinis, sand sun surf and fun.

The peak body charged with the promotion of Surfers Paradise, the Surfers Paradise Alliance, do not believe that the Surfers Paradise Metermaids are relevant to the promotion of Surfers Paradise. In most cases planned events promoting Surfers Paradise do not involve the golden bikini girls.

So the question is, do you believe that the Surfers Paradise Metermaids should be involved in the marketing of Surfers Paradise and should they be the face of Surfers Paradise promotions?

55. Save the San(d)ity of Glenelg Beach

This is a simple plea in-spite of the Millions to be spent shifting sand artificially along the Adelaide Coastline. While there are other, more effective and long term solutions being washed up on Glenelg Esplanade.

Noone could artificial develop anything as environmentally friendly as this sand-trapping solution, ingeniously invented to the beach by a storm. Let alone as cost effective.

56. Stop development plans in Victoria's National Parks

Stop the unacceptable plan to pave the way for new accommodation, restaurants and activities in National Parks that were formerly off limits, parks created by our forefathers for all generations to enjoy, cherish, respect and protect.

Parks such as Pt Nepean, Port Campbell, Wilsons Promontory and The Grampians need protection.

Ryan Smith, the Environmental Minister Has Now Amended The National Parks Act, Passed on 27 of August and wants to sign off 99 year Leases to private companies and compromise our National and Coastal Parks.

57. Lets give back to Cyprus 2013

Cypriot lawmakers rejected the unprecedented levy on bank deposits in an effort to protect the rights of the people who entrusted it throughout the years.

The time is now for Cypriots to show that together they can succeed and that when people stand united even the most difficult situations can be overcome.

Cypriot people will not remain impassive! Let's create a list of people who want to give back to Cyprus! Let's move words into action!

Depending on the level of response we will ask the Central Bank of Cyprus to open an account for every willing person to contribute. Every single cent counts!

58. Bring back United Productions of America

United Productions of America (better known as UPA) was known for "non-cartoon violence" and the creation of the plucky Mr. Magoo and off-the-wall Gerald McBoingBoing.

With the closure of the studio in 1959, UPA found its gem with Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol in 1962.

I'm such a fan of the UPA classics I've researched, and brought the DVD release of the Jolly Frolics.

59. Help get Rabbit Run-Away Orphanage on the Ellen show

Rabbit Runaway Orphanage (RRO) is a non-profit organisation and operates as an incorporated association. It is a public charity, run by a committee under Australian Law, with membership and a small dedicated group of volunteers. It is Victoria's first and only dedicated No Kill Pet Rabbit Sanctuary.

RRO receives no government funding and is reliant soley on donations and fundraising. It is an entity that belongs to all people that care about the welfare of pet rabbits. They are unique as Bunny orphans come to RRO as ‘overflows’ from other animal shelters.

RRO aims to provide care for sick, unwanted, stray, or mistreated rabbits and facilitate appropriate short-term care, medical treatment, rehabilitation treatment, long-term re-homing solutions, educate the public on rabbit ownership and care, prevent unnecessary euthanasia of rabbits and discourage the cruelty inflicted upon rabbits.

We (the volunteers and supporters) want to get Judi and Bryce Inglis on the Ellen show when she comes to Australia in March. We want them to have the opportunity to be exposed to a wider audience, tell their story and help educate on pet rabbits.
