It's not like this everywhere, only where it's ok to exploit frontline workers. Everywhere else, if you get in someone's face, that Austrian deli own may just slap you in the mouth.

dude, you can have one up and running in under an hour with printful. Since they print on demand, you won’t need to have any inventory on hand or handle shipping. the downside in your case is that you might have hundreds of purchases… they charge the merchant up front before transferring the settled charges back to you a couple days later.

I’m just a customer of printful, i’m not getting paid to tell you this, haha.

u/EvadesBans Sep 24 '21

They removed the cannabis stuff quietly so they wouldn't have to admit they were wrong all along. And so far as I know (and can tell from looking it back up again), they just removed it from their list of gateway drugs. I haven't found anything about them dropping the cannabis propaganda entirely.

Awful lot of articles pretending that removing it from a single list is the same as dropping the lies, or is the same as openly admitting it has health benefits that we should be studying. They don't seem to have done the former and they absolutely will never do the latter. They're a propaganda organization, they don't deal in truth.

Oh yeah, then DARE added cannabis back to their gateway drug list two days after it was removed, blaming it on a disgruntled employee. Aw shit, did I forget to mention that?

https://dare.org/incorrect-posting-on-pro-drug-websites-re-d-a-r-e-s-position-on-marijuana/

They also continued to spread propaganda after that. Obviously they don't source a single one of their claims.

DARE was just an excuse to put cops in classrooms and watch to see which kids seemed to recognize drug paraphernalia when they passed it around so they would know their parents do drugs.

I thought Ry handled the situation well for most of the interaction, and while there is room for improvement toward the end of the video, his behavior doesn’t warrant termination. His attempts to de-escalate the situation and end the interaction were met with a frankly unreasonable response from the person recording. I implore you to provide de-escalation training and clear protocols for your staff that are public-facing, and to take into consideration the embarrassing behavior of the other party in this situation concerning Ry. Please note that the public is OVERWHELMINGLY on Ry’s side on this one, and you still have an opportunity to do the right thing and set an example by utilizing this as a learning opportunity for all

You put him out there in a pandemic, and this idiot comes along harassing him for taking the simple precaution of wearing a mask. Now you have fired him? Unbelievable.

We are talking about DARE here... They are the original Karens and why the government has unnecessarily wasted billions of dollars and ruined thousands of lives with their bullshit war on drugs.

Exactly. You can't win. People just walk up to you with their camera up and practically force you to react and then boom you're in trouble. Dare kid had full rights to tell that guy to fuck off every direction

Yeah i dont know if they changed their program but dare doesnt do shit for stoping drug use. I actually learned about different drugs through dare and knew what they were so i seeked them out

I find it hilarious that your former employer’s motto is “You must destroy your fears and weaknesses in order to rise up and dance in the sun”.

Edit 4: This original comment was sceptical of OP, the possibility of this person pretending to be the dude from the video was high. He's posted proof of this being his account, so all is good now- the people needed to know if their money was going to the right place.

I'm glad it's real and have a good day :)

u/whowantstoknow209 Sep 24 '21 edited Sep 24 '21

The tiktok account is the same exact way as the instagram account. Same posts and profile picture. Im leaning towards fake and feel sorry for those that donated.

Edit: I want to add that I wouldn't be surprised if it is fake and the person behind these accounts is the guy who recorded the dare guy.

Edit 2: He posted proof! I'm glad it is him and that I was wrong. Not glad be lost his job over this.

That’s ridiculous. I know right now it doesn’t help to hear but any company that would fire you for sticking up for yourself in front of some ignorant troll is not a company worth working for. With your badass demeanor I have no doubt you’ll find another job quickly.

OP works for Halo Charity Solutions.

From their website: Our motto is simple. “You must destroy your fears and weaknesses in order to rise up and dance in the sun”

IMHO, OP crushed the motto man.

Dude, you are awesome.

Like, I am in love with your attitude. If everybody could be as cool and confidently right as you, these anti-mask/anti-vaxx bitches wouldn't dare harass random people just trying to do their jobs.

Go to his profile, because his comments are being weirdly censored and m-ds are banning accounts arbitrarily for defending OP/speaking against DARE.

u/ItzSpiffy Sep 24 '21

Asking because just want to be sure, not trying to cause any trouble but do we have any verification that he is who he says he is? Off the top of my head I figure anyone could make this account and post, so I'm curious if there is somewhere else people are confirming this info before donating money to a stranger.

To anyone who is considering donating to this... There's no verification to say that this is the actual DARE guy. The only photos on the insta, the go fund me, and the Reddit account are photos of him in the video. Pretty sure this is a scam.

Edit: his profile now has a verification video stating it's him, but I'm still surprised at how many people went ahead and donated without a shred of evidence. Carry on good natured Redditers
