I had never even heard of WD-40 before I moved to the U.S. Some of these 40 hacks are pretty impressive and made me realize it does’ more than just free rusted metal parts or stop things from making squeaky noises.

Write The Power

Writing a letter to Congress is one of the easiest ways to let your voice be heard by your political representatives both in the Senate & The House. Write the Power has made it uber easy to write your rep in just a few minutes with some pretty snazzy political postcards. Simply choose a card design from the political postcards collection, select the representatives you’d like to reach out to and type out your message. They will print and mail the post cards to Congress for you so your voice can be heard. 10% of the proceeds from each postcard will go to the ACLU to help support justice for all.
