I'm jumping for joy at all the fantastic responses we have been getting this month through the #choosekindness campaign.

What is an Ally?

Allies are people who recognize the unearned privilege they receive from society’s patterns of injustice and take responsibility for changing these patterns. Allies include men who work to end sexism, white people who work to end racism, heterosexual people who work to end heterosexism, able-bodied people who work to end ableism, and so on. 
How do I get started?
1. Know the Issues  Knowing a group's history is important to understanding their positions and being a responsible and aware ally. Read up on the history, look up an organization's web site or stop by their office. Find resources that explain the values and goals guiding a group's efforts toward social justice.
2. Know Yourself 
Everyone has his or her own culture and cultures have a history of interaction. Research and reflection will help you to identify where you're coming from in relation to the group of people you are interested in working with. Do some research about the kind of ally this group is seeking. Reflect on what it is you hope to see develop through your efforts of support. Be sure to address the societal and personal rewards of your commitment.
3. Build Relationships 
Finding a connection is the responsibility of the ally—it takes commitment, trust-building and initiative to develop individual connections within the group you wish to support. Understanding the goals of any movement begins with having a personal stake in its success. 
What does it take
to become an Ally? • Being willing to make mistakes—and to keep on trying. Being an ally means that sometimes you don't know what it means to be an ally so you keep asking questions, keep researching on your own—keep educating yourself.
• Being willing to be uncomfortable. You may be the odd one out, but it's important to remain committed to uncovering the role you hold even if it means making a role for yourself.
• Choosing to keep confronting your own privilege. Understanding that the personal is political—meaning that all of our choices either work to support social justice or detract from it.

"Палитра осени моей"
Шаль ,накидка,пончо,шарф,как кому нравится ,так и называет.Одним словом ,новый трансформер у меня случился . Безотрывный фриформ . Основа собрана из трёх, безотрывно связанных нерегулярным вязанием, скрамблей .Другими словами ,связано по-наитию, или куда поведет . Дополнено фантазийной ,бессхемной бахромой ,в том же стиле вязания "по-наитию". В моем любимом техническом решении вязания фриформа.
