Among the things kids like, there is moving things around, toys, teddy bears, puzzles, and cute things in general. The Animaze furniture somehow mixes all that together with a very playful set of furniture that can be assembled together. The parents will normally not mind these furniture, and probably will want to buy it because it just looks great.

Bluecadet's Anti-Defamation League Site Redesign Takes the Battle Digital

Bluecadet recently refreshed the Anti-Defamation League website, equipping this bastion of human rights protection with a very modern tool to battle hate and promote respect at a crucial junction in American history.

Founded in 1913 with a mission to combat anti-Semitism, over the past century the ADL's mission to protect and enhance human rights has expanded to include voting rights, First Amendment rights, LGBTQ rights, support for immigration reform, and combating anti-Muslim bias. The organization may be over a century old, but in the current political climate, their mission is as relevant and important as ever.

Whether it's an educator looking to eliminate bullying and cyberbullying from their campus, a law enforcement official investigating a hate crime, a journalist on deadline in search of ADL's position on breaking news, or an average American who feels moved to make their voice heard, Bluecadet created a streamlined, easily updated website with the needs of ADL's many constituencies in mind.

The new ADL.org is far more than a bully pulpit-it's the doorway to an organization focused on a holistic approach to promoting tolerance and respect.
