id draw the rest of medic but im tired its 3 am good night
Finals week is upon us. I haven’t have any official finals yet and actually we took a final for a class last week so I only have two now. Horray! Though one of them is a project that I have to spend literally all of today working on. Fear not though because what I have to do is wait for frames to render out in maya and that process takes forever. So I’m going to pretty stuff up while I wait! Yay!
Why Finnish babies sleep in cardboard boxes
For 75 years, Finland’s expectant mothers have been given a box by the state. It’s like a starter kit of clothes, sheets and toys that can even be used as a bed. And some say it helped Finland achieve one of the world’s lowest infant mortality rates.
It’s a tradition that dates back to the 1930s and it’s designed to give all children in Finland, no matter what background they’re from, an equal start in life.
The maternity package - a gift from the government - is available to all expectant mothers.
It contains bodysuits, a sleeping bag, outdoor gear, bathing products for the baby, as well as nappies, bedding and a small mattress.
With the mattress in the bottom, the box becomes a baby’s first bed. Many children, from all social backgrounds, have their first naps within the safety of the box’s four cardboard walls.
Mothers have a choice between taking the box, or a cash grant, currently set at 140 euros, but 95% opt for the box as it’s worth much more.
The tradition dates back to 1938. To begin with, the scheme was only available to families on low incomes, but that changed in 1949.

I would rather my tax money pay for this than drone missiles.

My best friend and I fangirl over each other all the time. Maybe we’re the future of clean energy.
3,749,000,000,000USD. That is the estimated value of unpaid housework performed in the US in 2010 if paid at the typical wage of a hired domestic worker. 26% of GDP
and that’s not even mentioning how poorly domestic workers get paid.
