Future planning is also inherent of Pinterest, and searches for weddings prove that: searches for “lesbian proposal” are now 3x greater, while those for “lesbian wedding suit” are increased 96%. <br /> <br /> Check out our full report for more Pride inspiration. 2020-06-15T07:00:00 Listening and Acting This morning we hosted an open conversation with our entire company. We heard directly from our black employees about the pain and fear they feel every day living in America. Their first-hand, lived experiences of racism and injustice. How the murder of George Floyd—a friend, a father, a son—forced the world to face the reality that the systemic racism facing the black community for generations remains very real today. It’s wrong. This has got to change. Because people are being murdered. And Black Lives Matter.   2020-06-02T21:00:00 Ben S.

Research has shown* that pets can help people feel better, so it should come as no surprise that animal shelters around the country (world?) are emptying out. &quot;Dogs make the perfect companions during COVID-19,” says Prairie Conlon, LMHP &amp; Clinical Director of CertaPet. “With many people across the country still isolating from friends and family, having a furry friend can alleviate loneliness. It&#039;s important to remember that adopting a dog is a lifetime commitment -- take the extra time now to train them for the future.”<br /> 2020-05-28T06:00:00 Swasti S.
