Dog of the Week: Pupdate Edition
“Zeus is doing great, listening and learning commands. Very stubborn and likes to do things on his own. Really a big baby and full of energy. Definitely a mamas boy!!! He’s 8 months and weighs about 83 or so pounds oh and sheds like a bitch too, and if he doesn’t get his way he likes to huff and puff, he will literally catch a whole ass attitude.” Zeus’s mom, Quen
Charity of the Week:
Iowa Safe Schools
“The mission of Iowa Safe Schools is to provide safe, supportive, and nurturing learning environments and communities for LGBTQ and allied youth through education, outreach, advocacy, and direct services.
All students need a safe, supportive atmosphere in which they can learn, including students that are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning (LGBTQ). Unfortunately, bullying, harassment, and discrimination against LGBTQ students occurs often in our schools. In fact, 82% of transgender youth report that they feel unsafe at school1 and 74.1% of LGBTQ students were verbally bullied in the past year because of their sexual orientation2. As these students face verbal and physical harassment, educators, policy makers, parents, and other students are often hampered by the lack of quality information and resources to protect LGBTQ students.
That’s where Iowa Safe Schools comes in.
We provide comprehensive support, victim services, resources, and events for LGBTQ and Allied youth. Serving over 4,500 youth annually, Iowa Safe Schools is the largest LGBTQ youth serving organization in the Midwest.” – Iowa Safe Schools
