Hong Kong Protests!

Have you heard about the protests in Hong Kong? It’s been going on for several days now and the demonstrators are continuing to occupy Central. You can read the full story here.

So, what’s this have to do with Pirate? Well, I once lived in Hong Kong. And I’m pretty sure Pirate supports democracy. So let’s supportĀ  the Hong Kong people who are trying to protect their democratic freedom!

Good luck! Don't get hurt!

200th Post — Crossroads Foundation!

It’s been 200 days more or less since this blog began. How do I know? WordPress tells me this is my 200th post! That’s…twice as many as 100 posts! Huzzah!

In all seriousness, though, I felt that this post should not only be big, but be a thank-you to a place that I consider very special. Thus, I present a comic about Crossroads Foundation (http://www.crossroads.org.hk/), a Hong Kong-based NGO that helps people around the world!

Why is is it so important? Well, they’ve partnered with the UN to create a service which connects need with resource called Global Hand (http://www.globalhand.org/en). They also help run simulations about what it’s like to be in need, and even appeared at Davos this year and put a bunch of CEO’s and famous-type people through what they call the Refugee Run (http://www.refugee-run.org/), which places you in the shoes of a refugee. I worked there for only a few months, but I consider it a very important part of my life.

I’m going to stop talking now. Enjoy the 200th post special comic about Crossroads, starring as always: Pirate! If you like the comic or want to spread the word about a good organization like this one, feel free to re-post or re-blog, print out, or link people to this picture! Hope you like it!

PS: It’s a MASSIVE image, so try looking at the full-size image so you can see all the details!

Where need meets resource! Let's all lend a helping hand with Pirate!
