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...
Vowing isn't the same as doing - get the carcinogens out of our baby products.

Close to 20 years of activism has finally paid off.
In August of 2012, Johnson & Johnson vowed to remove many toxic ingredients from baby care products. Included are: formaldehyde releasing preservatives, triclosan, phthalates (especially DEP) and ingredients derived from animal products. They stated they would remove parabens from products intended for children but parabens (banned in Denmark and a few other countries) would remain in products intended for adults.
A group of people signed a 'Thank You' for Johnson & Johnson stating they would remove the cancer and asthma causing chemicals from certain products. At the closing of the article, it stated that Johnson & Johnson is not giving out ingredient lists because they are still reformulating and learning how to use natural alternatives to the carcinogenic ingredients they had been using. These ingredients are obviously still in the Johnson & Johnson family of products on the shelves in our stores.
It would be nice if Johnson & Johnson would disclose when they have completed the process of removing all products with known carcinogens from our shelves and have completed replacing them with far safer, far less toxic, products. Do we still have baby shampoo with formaldehyde in the Johnsons & Johnson family of baby products? We don't know for sure - Roulette with the health of our children and ourselves.
If Johnson & Johnson can't figure out how to make products without chemicals, I can teach them. It's not that hard. I used to make products without risky chemicals for Sunflower Naturals in my kitchen that I had selling in two stores. I'm sure that if I can do it in my kitchen, they can figure it out with all their fancy factories. I can sell them the recipes I created ;o) I even wrote two books, they're beginner books, but would get them started in the right direction.
With all the lies and such, how can we really believe that the products do not contain the questionable, or even banned, ingredients? You can test each bottle of each product to be sure there are no questionable or banned ingredients in the products, take the risk without testing, or use natural products and solution that have never had questionable or banned ingredients in them in the first place.
