Yukon Girls Rock Camp 2015 — Kickstarter.

[SUPPORT] Yukon Girls Rock Camp 2015 — Kickstarter

Yukon’s VERY FIRST Girls Rock Camp!

Girls (aged 8-15) will be out there making music, speaking their mind and feeling totally empowered.  The Dawson City Music Festival Association is helping support the camp with instruments and they even get to play on stage at the music festival in July!  I know this is going to become something big.

What better way to spend the summer [and winter] than with other cool chicks, creating revolutions and rebel grrls!?!
I wish I had something like this growing up.

 

Help out by donating or sharing this with your friends… it is an amazing, much-needed opportunity for Yukon girls.

Oh, and watch the video on Kickstarter~! So, so, so, wicked!

Where does -IT- go in Ontario?

If you’re curious about how to properly dispose of broken record players, CDs, old phones, laptops, cameras and other electronic waste (e-waste) check this out:  Where does it go? – RecycleYourElectronics.ca.

Just type in your postal code and you’ll see lots of places & events that will properly dispose of e-waste! Some may arrange to pick it up from you, but there might be a small fee.

If you want some other incentives, donate to reBOOT, a registered charity.
$$$ You’ll receive a tax receipt $$$
Plus, you’ll be helping kids/adults who are in need of a computer.

***It’s important to properly dispose of e-waste because the materials used to make the technology are still valuable –even if the electronic is no longer working. ***

Why put lives in danger mining for a material we already have a lot of?  I don’t want that stuff being wasted in landfills! I especially wouldn’t want it leaching into the ground or accidentally finding itself in animals’ bellies :[

 

“Most of the parts – steel, glass, copper, aluminum, plastics and precious metals – can be recovered and made into new products. Also, lots of electronic equipment like computers, printers, and televisions can be reused, further cutting down on waste.” – Ontario Electronic Stewardship (OES)
