Pretty sure I already reblogged this but what the hell.  Love this campaign.  

campaign bringing awareness to homeless youth

I adore this campaign so much.

Okay just going to inform people about being young and homeless for a second

In most states, it is a status offense to run away from home, and in most states your parents can drag you home kicking and screaming.

46% leave because of physical abuse.

17% leave because of sexual abuse.

50% of homeless youth were kicked out, or their parent/guardian didn’t care/try to stop them when they left.

40% of the homeless in America are under 18.

Okay, so obviously in trying to fix homelessness, fixing youth homelessness is very important. But our society is completely restricting of youth being independent. A youth who is unhappy at home has very few options.

A youth is restricted from getting jobs without parental permission (and of course few homeless teens can get that). Without the option of getting a legal job, youth are forced into prostitution (survival sex), drug selling, and theft.

A yout cannot rent an apartment without parental permission.

Most hotels and motels will not let somebody under 18 book a room.

A youth cannot even get medical help without parental permission (even if they could afford it).

To house a homeless youth for more than 24 hours is a felony.

To aid a homeless youth in finding housing (besides a homeless shelter or their parent’s/guardian’s residence) is illegal.

Even shelters place 48 hour restrictions on youth without parental permission.

40% of homeless youth are LGBTQ.

Our misguided belief that these restrictions help youth- that these kids will go home and all will be well- is naive and harmful. It is ridiculous that we place parental rights and our notion that kids shouldn’t leave their parents above youth safety.

NSFW. No really. SUPER NOT SAFE FOR WORK.

But it is hilarious and you need to watch this in a safe place where people won’t give you horrified looks.

I found this gorgeous animated short film, which was directed by Ishida YuYasushi.  The stylization and charm reminds me of Studio Ghibli films or anything made by Mamoru Hosoda, the director of Summer Wars and The Girl who Leapt Through Time.

See THIS is why animation is so amazing. They make you feel for a chair. A CHAIR, PEOPLE. Tears! I’m a weeny and I’m crying, so there.

Beautiful vocal version of Jeremy Zuckerman’s Legend of Korra score! Check it out!

Incredible! Such a sublime rendition by the Audire Soundtrack Choir at the Berklee College of Music (Jeremy Zuckerman’s alma mater) featuring spoken word by Dante Basco.

Earth Queen from the new Official Trailer for Legend of Korra, Book Three: Change. She reminds me of the Dowager Empress Cixi, but that makes sense since the Earth Kingdom and Ba Sing Se in particular are heavily based on the Qing Dynasty.

Watch the trailer here
