Any of my followers out there ever donated bone marrow, or signed up for it? I’m looking into it and it seems pretty grim to go through. Any thoughts?

Unfortunately I’m not eligible to donate but I know a bit about the process. First of all, all they need is a saliva sample, so obviously that bit’s painless! If you are found to be a match at some point then you can give the donation - this has a bit of a grim reputation because in the past it was pretty grim. But now 90% are able to donate peripherally through a vein, so just like giving blood. If they have to take it directly from the pelvis then they do it under anaesthetic using a small gauge needle (but actually patients can undergo this procedure under local in normal circumstances).

You’re possibly an ideal candidate!

"Human beings don't have a right to water."

Across the globe, Nestlé is pushing to privatize and control public water resources.

Nestlé’s Chairman of the Board, Peter Brabeck, has explained his philosophy with “The one opinion, which I think is extreme, is represented by the NGOs, who bang on about declaring water a public right. That means as a human being you should have a right to water. That’s an extreme solution.”

Since that quote has gotten widespread attention, Brabeck has backtracked, but his company has not. Around the world, Nestlé is bullying communities into giving up control of their water. It’s time we took a stand for public water sources.

Tell Nestlé that we have a right to water. Stop locking up our resources!

At the World Water Forum in 2000, Nestlé successfully lobbied to stop water from being declared a universal right — declaring open hunting season on our local water resources by the multinational corporations looking to control them. For Nestlé, this means billions of dollars in profits. For us, it means paying up to 2,000 percent more for drinking water because it comes from a plastic bottle.

Now, in countries around the world, Nestlé is promoting bottled water as a status symbol. As it pumps out fresh water at high volume, water tables lower and local wells become degraded. Safe water becomes a privilege only affordable for the wealthy.

In our story, clean water is a resource that should be available to all. It should be something we look after for the public good, to keep safe for generations, not something we pump out by billions of gallons to fuel short-term private profits. Nestlé thinks our opinion is “extreme”, but we have to make a stand for public resources. Please join us today in telling Nestlé that it’s not “extreme” to treat water like a public right.

Tell Nestlé to start treating water like a public right, not a source for private profits!

Yeah they’re still at this. At least they’ve started putting their logo and name on all their subsidiary products, that way i can know what not to buy.

They make movies with horrible futures and people think this shit can’t happen or atrocities can’t happen again, well they damn well do and they damn well can.

I don’t normally reblog this type of thing - but this is really important.

Me neither, but this is important and why I boycott all Nestlé products. They’re easy to spot because they’re so arrogant they put their logo on everything.

I illustrated a map of Scotland for National Collective a few weeks ago and now have prints for sale here

It was a really fun project, I learned a lot about my country’s landmarks and improved my cartography skills in the process!

I LOVE THIS
