Rename SH 99 The JJ Watt Parkway
JJ Watt has been an exemplary humanitarian and Houstonian. He has given to our great city more than we could ever have asked for ! Through his fundraising efforts over 27 million dollars was raised to aide Houstonians suffering loss due to Hurricane Harvey! As a token of our appreciation not only should SH 99 bear his number but also his name!

Help Us Save The Hostel in Buffalo, NY
Hostel Buffalo-Niagara Needs Your Help. Our beloved hostel is in danger. The City of Buffalo is selling our home at 667 Main Street. Commercial development would leave our nonprofit hostel without a home. We want to acquire and renovate the building ourselves to save the hostel. About Hostel Buffalo-Niagara: Every major city has a hostel. It is a preferred way to travel across the world. The budget-oriented shared rooms, common areas, and communal facilities attract domestic and world travelers with the common need of affordable and accessible hospitality. Hostel Buffalo Niagara has brought more than 100,000 visitors to downtown Buffalo. As an active partner in our local community, Hostel Buffalo Niagara immerses travelers in the diverse culture of our beautiful city. Hostel Buffalo Niagara showcases local artists and performers in its gallery and also collaborates with civic and cultural organizations including Habitat for Humanity, The Buffalo Infringement Festival, Food Not Bombs, GObike Buffalo, Waste Not Want Not, Squeaky Wheel Film & Media Art Center, The Wash Project, and many others. Asks: Please join us in asking the City of Buffalo to help us keep our home at 667 Main Street, so we can continue and expand our mission introducing visitors to Buffalo and supporting its unique culture.
Petition to Dos Coyotes
Bring Dos Coyotes to Butte, Montana
Butte, Montana is a wonderful place, and I appreciate the warm welcome that I have received in such a cold place. The people here make me feel at home, even though my home of Davis, California is one thousand miles away. But there is one thing that is missing. And there is one thing that these people deserve. And that is the greatness of Dos Coyotes Border Cafe. I believe that a Dos Coyotes would thrive in Butte, MT because there are limited options for Mexican food, and because the business opportunities in the town are booming. The city is seeing an economic revival, and Dos Coyotes could easily become one of the most popular restaurants in town. Bobby Coyote, here is your chance to make Dos Coyotes a country-wide phenomenon. Bring your fantastic food to the Copper City.
Petition to Barack Obama
Please Award Medal of Freedom to Prince Posthumously
The 'Presidential Medal of Freedom' is the highest award that can be given to an American civilian, and one which only the President of the Untied States of America can award, at his discretion. It would be patently unfair for Prince Rogers Nelson, deceased, to not receive this honor and the historic recognition which goes along with it. Prince deserves this honor, not just because of his success as an artist, but for his courage in fighting against Warner Bros for rights of artists - a fight which he ultimately won. Artists will forever benefit from his struggle to obtain these rights. His memory deserves this honor because of his public stance against injustice. But also deserved and earned, most of all, because of his philanthropic gifts to others illustrating that he was also a humanitarian. These things he did, not for publicity or public recognition, but did so privately and from his heart. We the fans of Prince, respectfully request that President Barack Obama add Prince's name to the list of those set to receive this honor, with the actual medal to be housed in the Smithsonian African-American Museum, so that the world will know of his greatness in addition to music and the arts. As the president himself said at his passing, "Prince did it all." Since Prince did his giving with the agreement of confidentiality, many of those who knew him, such as the president did, were not even aware of what he did for others, simply because he did not boast or parade his giving. We, the fans of Prince, implore President Obama to include him as a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Here is a list of the philanthropic actions of Prince Rogers Nelson,deceased: -Donated $250,00 -Eau Claire Promise to help pre-schoolers and their families in Columbia S.C.-$1,000,000 2 Harlem Children's Zone for poverty-stricken children living in Harlem;-$250,000 2 Uptown Dance Academy in 2014 to prevent them from losing their studio;-Donations to schools and facilities in Georgia,Texas,Wisconsin,and Ohio-$12,000 to 1st full service library for African-Americans in Louisville,Kentucky to prevent its closure- $80,000 to Urban Ventures Leadership Foundation-$50,000 2 a fund for victims of the 2007 I-35 bridge collapse-$50,000 2 Testolini's 'In a Perfect World Foundation 4 at-risk children;-$90,00 to Kurtis Blow's MLK tribute video-Donated to Chanhassen neighborhood elementary schools for musical instruments;-Donated money to parents of Trayvon Martin;-Funded Green Jobs Act in Oakland,CA for solar panels;-Funded school for orphans in Afghanistan;- Funded Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Support to helpvulnerable women and children in Afghanistan-Funded 'Yes We Code' initiative 2 teach young African-Americans how to write computer code;-Donated to Van Jones' 'Rebuild the Dream'-Donated Love 4 One Another charitiesfor schools,shelters,and community programs in L.A.,N.Y.,Minneapolis,and Aames, Iowa;-Doanted to Baltimore Youth Charities;-Concert for Chick Huntsberry when he passed awat;-$40,000 to Urban Farmin in Southfiel, Michigan to support health living and food for the hungry;-Carnegie Hall tribute concert "Little Kids Rock";- $1,000,000 to Marva Collins' school;- Donated thousands of dollars to James Brown musician when he became ill; Prince merits the honor and recognition not only for his extraordinary musical contributions, but also for being a great American and a remarkable human being.
