POSTED APRIL 9, 2018: Without financial support, site goes down on April 26, 2018. I can't do this alone... have not had even one gift of support since February. I am homeless and on the streets, I have NO MONEY for this. I really need some help to keep this six years of work online, PLEASE.
THIS WORK FOR SAFE HEALTHCARE PRODUCTS IS BEING DONE BY A 50 YEAR OLD HOMELESS WOMAN, homeless and on the streets since 2011 after loss of my management job and subsequent foreclosure on my house. I grew up in foster care so I have no family and no friends in a position to help me. I REQUIRE ENOUGH MONEY FOR ONLY THREE THINGS:
1. Cell phone with internet access. I cannot load files TO the web site from public service connections. This block is required to prevent hackers from using public access connections. I cannot write content and load it to the site until my phone is back on. Phone was shut down on the fourth because I have NO MONEY and almost NO SUPPORT FOR THIS WORK.
2. 4 foot by 4 foot storage unit to keep computer, periferals, back-ups and what pathetic little I have left of my life, destroyed by my ex, long story. Storage was locked up by managment on the 9th due to non-payment because I have NO MONEY and almost NO SUPPORT FOR THIS WORK. I have been wearing the same filthy stinking clothes for 10 days now because I have NOTHING LEFT BUT THE CLOTHES ON MY BACK AND A BAG WITH LAPTOP AND SOME TOILETRIES. The bag will likely get stolen in the near-distant future because I have to sleep sometimes and can't keep watch on the bag when I'm sleeping. Already had FIVE laptops stolen because I have to sleep. It was why I got the storage unit in the first place.
3. SERVER FEES TO KEEP ALL THIS WORK ONLINE. Obviously, no server space, no site, total end of this effort. I have NO MONEY to pay the server fees that are due on the 26th.
Must have to continue: $250
Gifts of support sent
as of 4 PM April 19, 2018: $0
NOT ONE PENNEY SINCE FEBRUARY. I stretched the money from January and February to cover January, February and March. I have less than $2 left.
Of the 2 million page views this site has received, over 6,000 were from Johnson & Johnson servers. I'm sure they are celabrating my failure to obtaion financial support and look forward to the site going down on the 26th. Crossing their fingers that no one chooses to help.
I'm sorry I have no money to pay for the tools REQUIRED to continue this work. I wish I did, I hate the thought of all this work going offline after 6 YEARS of a massive amount of work, 100 hour weeks. But if there's no support, I guess people are okay with the way Johnson & Johnson does business and all this work will be gone in less than a week. I did what I could...
The Johnson & Johnson Credo sounds good, but is nothing more than a fairy tale since it certainly is not used as a guide for ethical business decisions.

Ah, the cherished Johnson & Johnson Credo...is now basically a bunch of totally meaningless marketing material. While Billy Weldon continually claims to support the J&J Credo - the actions of the company show the reality: the credo is totally ignored in day-to-day operations and has been for quite a long time.
Johnson & Johnson Original Credo
"We believe our first responsibility is to the doctors, nurses and patients, to mothers and fathers and all others who use our products and services. In meeting their needs, everything we do must be of high quality. We must constantly strive to reduce our costs in order to maintain reasonable prices. Customers' orders must be serviced promptly and accurately. Our suppliers and distributers must have an opportunity to make a fair profit."Toxic ingredients intentionally allowed in U.S. baby and other personal care products, metal shards, inconsistent medication concentration, damaged insulin products, strange aromas, FDA violations resulting in factory shut-downs, drug shortages and, due to facility closings, numerous medications not available for those who need them. Okay, scrap this part of the Credo.

"We are reasonable to our employees, the men and women who work with us throughout the world. Everyone must be considered as an individual. We must respect their dignity and recognize their merit. They must have a sense of security in their jobs. Compensation must be fair and adequate, and working conditions clean, orderly and safe. We must be mindful of ways to help our employees fulfill their family responsibilities. Employees must feel free to make suggestions and complaints. There must be equal opportunity for employment, development and advancement for those qualified. We must provide competent management, and their actions must be just and ethical."Now, I can't say too much about working conditions since I've never worked for J&J. However, in the last few years I understand that Billy's 'restructuring' led to the loss of approximately 8-9% of J&J U.S. employees. That does not include the closing of two Cordis plants from the loss of the stolen patent for those medicated heart stents, which resulted in the loss of another 1,000 jobs. But hey, got Billy and buddies a lot more compensation, right? I know from my communications with a few whistleblowers, and those who chose to just walk away quietly, that if any employee have complaints about the illegal activities within J&J, such as stealing from Medicaid or knowingly allowing a batch of defective products to leave the facility, they lose their jobs - one was literally told, "If you don't like it, there's the door."

"We are responsible to the communities in which we live and work and to the world community as well. We must be good citizens - support good works and charities and bear our fair share of taxes. We must encourage civic improvements and better health and education. We must maintain in good order the property we are privileged to use, protecting the environment and natural resources."From what I see in the news, J&J uses every loophole they can find to avoid taxes. How can Bloomberg: Corporate Taxes Fail to Follow Profit Rebound without doing all it takes to reduce paying taxes? Maintaining their properties? Oh, come on. J&J neglected at least three of their own facilities to the point of the FDA having to step in and babysit the facilities due to constant recalls and an enormous number of FDA violations. One of the facilities was so bad that it's been closed for well over a year. As for protecting the environment and natural resources: 1,4-dioxane is a known carcinogen that does not break down in the environment. When this carcinogen goes down the drain, it builds up in the environment. As it comes back in our food and water supply in increasing higher concentrations, it increases the risk of developing cancers and other non-communicable diseases. Well, this section of the *cherished* J&J Credo is also nothing more than potty paper.

"Our final responsibility is to our stockholders. Business must make a sound profit. We must experiment with new ideas. Research must be carried on, innovative programs developed and mistakes paid for. New equipment must be purchased, new facilities provided and new products launched. Reserves must be created to provide for adverse times. When we operate according to these principles, the stockholders should realize a fair return."By ignoring the Credo, J&J makes it appear as though there is a return for their investors. However, as Bill Weldon runs the company into the ground by choosing *ASS*tronomical pay and neglecting facilities to the point of not being able to keep up with consumer demands, chronic recalls and fewer jobs, the return for the investor is not likely to continue much longer.
