My name is Brandon Stanton and I’m a photographer in New York City. As many of you already know, several months ago I was approached by the fashion label DKNY, who offered me $15,000 to purchase 300 of my photographs. I politely refused the offer. But earlier this week, one of my fans discovered that DKNY was using my photographs anyway— in Asia. (Full Story:http://thebea.st/13ijYt6) As atonement for this infringement, I publicly requested that DKNY donate $100,000 in my name to the YMCA in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, so that underprivileged children could attend summer camp. DKNY responded on Monday with a $25,000 donation.Over the next three days, my audience stepped in and raised the full $100,000 themselves. Over 3,000 people chipped in, and raised an astonishing $103,710 in 72 hours. (http://bit.ly/YTy4h3)I have no interest in vilifying DKNY. It is a company composed of thousands of good people. The founder, Donna Karan, is highly respected around the world for both her creativity and philanthropy. But I would appreciate if you would REBLOG this post, and lend your voice to my request that DKNY raise their donation to match the $103,710 that we raised. Together, we could create a $208,000 investment in the lives of children in one of New York’s most vital and diverse neighborhoods. Thank you so much.

Dear HONY,

My name is Vicki. Having been raised in Queens, I know well how important it is to have children experience the joys of camp and spend time in a non-concrete environment. Now, I am fortunate enough to work for a company that brings smiles to children and families every day – Feld…

Oh, YAYAYAYAYAY! <3

Tumblr notifies me there are 88 new posts while I’ve been scrolling to get to where I left off yesterday. I click; there are five. It notifies me there is one new post while I look at those five. I click; there are five. All numbers = five.

I’ve made a couple things, but mostly I’ve been crappy and sickly.

I still don’t know the point of the cubes, but people seem to like them. like the zipper pulls; at least they have a function…

i’ve never seen anyone steal candy from a baby

Babies aren’t even supposed to have candy, so stealing it is not only easy it’s the right thing to do.
