As we slide into week 2 of the public impeachment hearings, we start to see the cracks in the foundation of this not very funny Fun House that HWMNBN has built around him. Dedicated career civil servants are not allowing themselves to be bullied into silence, facts the Orange Machine tried to suppress will not be silent! People are being thrown under the bus!
And who is driving the bus? Why, it’s none other than…
Our favorite grizzlies are doing “The Bus”!
Making fun of current events and various politicians, and rage tweeting on Twidder are not enough!
We need to get out and vote in races large and small. One of the things that have become all too apparent, is that those down ballot races have a lot to do with the current condition we find ourselves in: gerrymandered voting districts that favor the GOP, even when state voting totals lean more toward the Democrats.
One of the byproducts of gerrymandering and skewed representation in state legislature, is voter suppression. Much of this voter suppression disadvantages and targets people of color and underrepresented populations. Stacey Abrams, who recently lost the race for Georgia’s governor’s race, has started an organization to combat voter suppression nation wide. It’s called Fair Fight, and that leads me too…needle felted pandas!
I’m having a lot of fun making these little felted pandas! While I definitely have my favorites, and definitely plan to keep some, I’m making more of them every week. So, I thought to myself, “how could these little pandas do something worthwhile and valiant, to make the world a better place?”
So here’s my idea…
For every donation to Fair Fight of $100 or more, made between now and December 1st, I will send you an adorable, one of a kind needle felted panda! Now, this can’t be an unlimited offer, because I only have so much time to make these little bears, so at some point if this proves a popular thing, I will have to say enough. Also, because I am still somewhat under a financial cloud, if you want to send me $10 for postage and materials, via my PayPal link (See the Bear in the Bowler hat on the sidebar) it would be most appreciated.
Choice of panda will be by the whim of the artist. These are truly not available anywhere. I hope the thought of having an artist made panda will be an incentive (I mean besides preventing the downfall of Democracy) to make a contribution to Fair Fight. Voting is the last best chance we have to turn this bus around.
To claim a panda, just send me proof of donation to yourbrainonpandas (at) gmail (dot) com and eventually you will get a panda in the mail! (You’ll also have to send me your address so I can send you a panda!) Huzzah! tell ’em Unka Bob sent you!
Be the bear!
