In 1980, She Made A Statement. In 2014, All These Awesome Famous People Did Too.

Politicians and the media sure have a lot to say about female voters. Every time I turn on the news, it seems like there's another person trying to tell America what women want. This is just my opinion, but I'm a little bit tired of that! Which is why I'm loving. this. song. Press "Play." And rock on.

In 1980, She Made A Statement. In 2014, All These Awesome Famous People Did Too.

The nicest thing you can do for yourself this election year is to make a plan for how you'll get to the polls on Election Day (in 2014, it's Nov. 4).

The second nicest thing you can do is share this song! ~*~click the buttons~*~ But you KNOW I'm not gonna tell you what to do ... that's the whole idea behind this and behind voting and behind ... democracy!

You decide.

While you're deciding, I'll just be over here ... probably watching this again. And again. And ... again? OK fine, again.

Oh, and while you're deciding if you want to share this, you might want to *Like* the creators of this video, The Department of Peace on Facebook, too. They seem pretty cool, right?


If the past year has taught us nothing else, it's that sending love out into the world through selfless acts of kindness can have a positive ripple effect on people and communities. People all over the United States seemed to have gotten the message — 71% of those surveyed by the World Giving Index helped a stranger in need in 2020. A nonprofit survey found 90% helped others by running errands, calling, texting and sending care packages. Many people needed a boost last year in one way or another and obliging good neighbors heeded the call over and over again — and continue to make a positive impact through their actions in this new year.

Upworthy and P&G Good Everyday wanted to help keep kindness going strong, so they partnered up to create the Lead with Love Fund. The fund awards do-gooders in communities around the country with grants to help them continue on with their unique missions. Hundreds of nominations came pouring in and five winners were selected based on three criteria: the impact of action, uniqueness, and "Upworthy-ness" of their story.

Here's a look at the five winners:

Edith Ornelas, co-creator of Mariposas Collective in Memphis, Tenn.

Edith Ornelas has a deep-rooted connection to the asylum-seeking immigrant families she brings food and supplies to families in Memphis, Tenn. She was born in Jalisco, Mexico, and immigrated to the United States when she was 7 years old with her parents and sister. Edith grew up in Chicago, then moved to Memphis in 2016, where she quickly realized how few community programs existed for immigrants. Two years later, she helped create Mariposas Collective, which initially aimed to help families who had just been released from detention centers and were seeking asylum. The collective started out small but has since grown to approximately 400 volunteers.
