"The purpose of freedom is to free someone else."
please, please, please. this if extremely important to me. vote and reblog.
Freedom House is participating in the Chase Community Giving program this year. Chase will donate $5M to the top 196 charities that receive the most votes.
Please consider voting for Freedom House (the organization with the DETROIT adress!) and reblogging this post.
By voting for Freedom House, you are helping us to continue providing comprehensive services (food, shelter, clothing, personal amenities, legal aid, medical care, mental care, socialization, recreation, and acculturation, and transitional housing) to political refugees who are seeking political asylum in the United States. We assist those who have stood up for democracy, freedom, justice, human rights, and peace in their home countries. These individuals have had to flee their country as a result, to literally save their life.
Your vote would mean the world to me, and could literally mean the difference between a life saved and a life killed. For example, these funds can help prevent the following scenario: If we don’t have the funds to provide services, someone is unable to receive legal aid, among other things, will be put into removal proceedings before an immigration judge, and sent home to his/her death.
Bonus Vote: Sign in with Facebook and you can get us another vote! A Facebook user can earn one (1) bonus vote by allowing “Access” and sharing any content from the Chase Community Giving application to his/her Facebook newsfeed or timeline.
Please help us out!

Thank you all so much.
Peace and love.
"Ultimately our aim should be to create a world free from the displaced, the homeless and the hopeless, a world of which each and every corner is a true sanctuary where the inhabitants will have the freedom and the capacity to live in peace. Every thought, every word, and every action that adds to the positive and the wholesome is a contribution to peace. Each and every one of us is capable of making such a contribution. Let us join hands to try to create a peaceful world where we can sleep in security and wake in happiness."

“Behind the Cover Photo: Evading Police, Capturing a Spirit”
“This is an image for freedom, an image for humanity. This is someone who’s changing the world and has made a huge sacrifice to do it. And she has something; she has a spirit; she has a quality that can inspire people to be better, to make a difference. It’s something that’s more than a person of power. I’m photographing something that is changing the world for the better.” [Platon, portrait photographer]
