You're surrounded by vampires...energy vampires. These electronics suck energy away when they're not even in use. Let's unplug, y'all! http://dsorg.us/2fE48W3
  1. You'll save energy!
    Unplugging devices saves tons of energy, and prevent unnecessary carbon monoxide pollution—over 8.7 billion pounds a year from the U.S. alone.
  2. You'll save money!
    Since energy vampires suck electricity when they're off, they're adding to your electricity bill, too. Because of energy vampires, Americans lose $5.8 billion dollars annually. Unplug to save a few bucks!
  3. It's good for your cell phone
    Smartphone providers recommend never fully charging your battery to prevent damage. Unplug the chord from your charging port at 99%, and unplug the charger too!
  4. You can win a $1,500 scholarship!
    Unplug energy vampires and visit http://dsorg.us/2fE48W3 to let us know how you did. All you have to do to be eligible to win is follow the brief instructions on our Don't Be A Sucker Page!

Here are 5 reasons to find your V-Spot (you know, your voting location!) so that you are ready to vote on November 8.
  1. 1.
    This election, there are 49 million eligible young voters, meaning our generation has the power to elect politicians who care about the issues that are important to us.
  2. 2.
    Millenials are the best-educated group of young adults in American history, but are burdened with an average student loan debt of $27,000 - nearly twice the average of 20 years ago. Millenials can elect a president who has a plan to tackle student debt.
  3. 3.
    Millenials are the first generation in modern history to have higher level of poverty and unemployement and lower levels of wealth and personal income than the two immediate preceding generations had at the same strength of their lives. Young people can appoint a leader who can strengthen our economy.

Ready to join our global movement for good...Halloween style? Let's do this.
  1. Zombie Blood Drive
    Every 2 seconds someone in the US needs a blood transfusion. Over 44,000 donations are needed daily to help alleviate this. Run a blood donation drive to help close the donation gap! http://dsorg.us/2dWZe3Y
  2. Treats for Troops
    Deployed troops often miss parts of home that aren't available where they are, which can make them feel isolated. Receiving packages with candy and other familiar essentials can combat feelings of sadness! Host a Halloween Candy Giveback drive and fill packages with candy. http://dsorg.us/2dK32H2
  3. Trash or Treat
    Americans spend over $2 billion on Halloween candy...that's a lot of waste! Upcycle your candy wrappers by creating fun, sweet bracelets for you and your friends. http://dsorg.us/2dk3uFi
