Our PBT of the Week is @babymoooo_. Moonie was blessed with a wide range of international experiences from assisting coffee farmers in Guatemala to helping physicians run a medical clinic in Honduras. During one of her travels, Moonie was deeply affected by the reality that many children and adults in developing countries are forced to walk barefoot over rough terrain because of a lack of resources to secure appropriate footwear. Her empathy drove her to develop the FootPrints organization at Cornell University. The impact of the organization is phenomenal: it has refurbished, recycled, and shipped nearly 5,000 pairs of shoes to people in need across the world including those in South Africa, Ecuador, and Nigeria! FootPrints was recognized by former President Bill Clinton’s Clinton Foundation in both 2012 and 2013 for its tremendous success in raising awareness about the global shoe disparity issue that plagues so many underprivileged communities. We applaud Moonie for her commitment to being the change she wished to see! via Instagram http://ift.tt/1hf4ix0

Placing my thoughts, dreams, questions, and concerns under God’s control is absolutely necessary for my well-being Releasing my grip off of the unknown and putting it all in the hands of the Author of my story can be a scary thing
It’s scary because I don’t know what’s written…

Frozen in the hood

how is this the hood. that is clearly a suburbian neighborhood. likeeeeeee can we stop with the casual racism?

Thank you^^^

For real damn smh

She’s probably studied dance for years and is enjoying the snow, but since she’s black…. yah know she MUST be hood. 

God Forbid her name be Rasheeda Jackson. SMH they’ll be making fun all day.

this is how we know “ghetto” and “hood” are synonymous with blackness for white people, no matter what economic class we’re actually in; you will look at us the same way no matter what, so fuck respectability politics and trying to “polite” our way into civil rights

for the fucking comments 

By the way, this “ghetto” girl has a name; it’s Allie.
