Verizon's HopeLine

Way to go +Verizon Wireless on the HopeLine Program!

Taken from the Verizon website:

Verizon is committed to helping the nearly one in four women, one in seven men and more than 3 million children in the United States affected by domestic violence. We're doing our part to end this epidemic by collecting no-longer-used wireless phones and accessories and turning them into support for domestic violence organizations nationwide. Through HopeLine, we've donated hundreds of thousands of phones and awarded millions of dollars in cash grants to our partner agencies.

Wireless phones and technology serve as a vital link for all of us. They're also an especially safe and reliable way for domestic violence victims and survivors to reach emergency or support services in times of crisis and stay connected with employers, family and friends.
HopeLine phones are refurbished phones that are equipped with 3,000 anytime minutes of airtime and texting capabilities. They come with Verizon Wireless Nationwide Coverage, Call Forwarding, Call Waiting, 3-Way Calling, Caller ID, Basic Voice Mail and texting. HopeLine phones are available to survivors affiliated with participating domestic violence agencies.

The 86th Academy Awards. . .

This is kind of late but I wanted to congratulate Lupita Nyong'o on winning the Oscar in the "Best Actress in a Supporting Role" category for her performance in the movie, 12 Years a Slave!

She is a beauty and I LOVED her dress!


And congrats to #Ellen on hosting the Oscars!  She was hilarious and she made the awards show fun and memorable.  Outstanding job!!

What You Won't Do for Love

Great job by #Mitsubishi on the 2014 car commercial that stopped me in my tracks!  I love the song choice - "What You Won't Do for Love" (1978) by the talented Bobby Caldwell!  I looked at the TV as soon as I heard it.  So smooth!  #classic



+Mitsubishi Motors North America

Here is the full song. . .

And here is the late #TupacShakur who sampled this song on his track, "Do For Love."  It was one of the few #Tupac songs that I could rap from start to finish!  No curse words :)
