Petition to help Simon Edwards become the next CEO of Sears Holdings

I remember when I was a young boy being part of the local San Diego, California Sears helping my mom and dad transport product from our vehicle to our deli. Our family were one of the first to incorporate a deli into the Sears retail establishment offering high quality food & drink to the consumers of the retailer. I studied and watched day in and day out the processes and procedures involved in operating a business, driving foot traffic and promoting an experience that provides value and has the capability for growth. As my career path evolved I went on to start working with H&R Block as a field technical engineer covering our implementation inside of Sears & Kmart. My career with H&R Block lasted for 10 years turning to Business Operations and acting as a Corporate Liaison in many of the initiatives that the Company set forth to ensure a sustainable and profitable practice in the Tax & Financial market. I was exposed to Corporate meetings that led to the removal of H&R Block from Sears retailers and expressed my thoughts on how I believe the decision could have been avoided. From a very young age my family and I have been involved with Sears & Kmart in many ways and people that truly know me know I'm the right person to lead Sears Holdings to a point of profitability and beyond. I have many valuable connections in the retail industry as well as many valuable connections with companies and individuals from other industries that directly impact retail. Together we will help solve the decline in retail. There is value in Sears Holdings and I believe I'm the right person to help drive growth in the industry for the Company. We will embrace and engage in value driven based initiatives that promote a stronger confidence metric for stakeholders and shareholders across the board.  Please petition to help me Simon Edwards become the next President & Chief Executive Officer of Sears Holdings We will be doing good for our local Communities, the Nation and the Globe.

Petition to Cape Fear Games - Wilmington, NC

Hire Travis at Cape Fear Games

Everyone has a dream job. As we get older, we realize how sometimes we can't reach it. My dreams were paleontology, marine biology, and astrophysics. I've never had the means to afford school, so I had to give those up. However, that does not mean there aren't other jobs we can enjoy.  I've spent the majority of my life pushing for those special trade skill high paying positions. Unfortunately, my health, my relationships, my personal life have suffered. Working long hours, taking me away from home, etc. I was miserable.  I have since moved back home to Wilmington, obtained custody of one of my children, and would like to devote my time to a position that is more local. Home grown. Home owned. Something unique to my city. Something that won't take me away from my kids for weeks at a time.   "Then why not work at any old place?" I've been a quasi-regular here since 2012. As someone who's heavily introverted it's hard to find a place where you fit in. Where you can open up. This place is it.  It's an absolute nerd/geek heaven. The staff, the product, and the people are amazing. Having said that, many people want to work here because they think they can goof off and get paid. They forget it's still a job. Given my background as a truck driver who has been trusted with hauling Nintendo loads for Gamestop, and as a personal bodyguard who has been assigned to actors and actresses, I have the experience to remain professional in an environment that may be overwhelming or distracting for others.  "Those are pretty impressive positions. Why not still do those?" I had to give up trucking to be home for my children and since the film industry tanked in NC, finding work as a bodyguard is quite difficult. But if I'm going to be home, I might as well do something I enjoy. What do I enjoy? Being able to discuss things like Magic: The Gathering, Pokemon, Munchkin, Dungeons & Dragons, Warhammer, etc, and think to myself "Wow, this is really what I do." Adding buying and selling into the mix doesn't matter. I'm still dealing in things I enjoy.  It's not about the money anymore. It's about wanting to be one of those few that can say "I love my job". Not many of us get to say that. If this petition is what it takes to make me stand out from the crowd, then so be it. It requires no money. No real effort. Just a signature. An acknowledgment that says "Ya know what? Give the guy a chance." I've seen position listings up multiple times in the past six months. I hope this goes to show how adamant I am about bringing my love of TCGs, tabletop RPGs, and other hobbies to help this place grow even more.  Let me do the work and prove myself.

Petition to National Retail Federation

Tell Stores to Stop Energy Waste at Their Front Door!

Every summer, stores across the country run the air conditioning and prop their doors open, allowing cold air to pour onto the sidewalk. Each store with an open door wastes about 4,000 kilowatt hours of electricity over the summer. This generates two tons of carbon dioxide – the same amount of pollution produced by a diesel truck driving from New York to Miami.  Tell stores to close their doors to wasting energy! During hot summer days electricity demand peaks and stresses the energy grid. Each store can help lead the way towards a retail industry and a public that is smarter about conserving energy.   You can use your power as a consumer to make a difference! We can tell stores to stop wasting energy and generating more pollution. Sign our petition to send a message to the National Retail Federation to tell their members to adopt closed door policies. We believe that our community stores should be responsible citizens that help to keep our air safe and clean for everyone. Generation 180 is a nonprofit dedicated to supporting a cultural shift in energy awareness and advancing clean energy. Our Keep it Cool campaign enables consumers to identify local stores with their doors open or closed and tag them for our national map. Visit our campaign website to find out how you can get involved and tag stores in your community using Facebook messenger.  Imagine the impact we can have if we get stores around the country to close their doors—keeping these doors closed would save the amount of carbon dioxide produced by 830 million miles driven in a car!
