Our friends over at Kickstarter tipped us off to a very cool project in need of funding. The Floating Doctors is an idea that grew out of a trip Dr. Ben La Brot took to Tanzania while he was a medical student (he's also a marine biologist). He stopped at a Masai village and treated the villagers there with the medicine he had with him in his backpack, but there wasn't nearly enough to go around. Not one to be discouraged-remember, this is a guy who's a doctor and a marine biologist-Ben created The Floating Doctors as a mobile medical clinic, staffed with volunteers on a donated boat, that plans to go all over the world administering treatment.But they need money to do it, which is why they created this page on Kickstarter. They're hoping to raise $25,000 by September 24th. As you can see by the widget below, they're not there yet. Learn about their mission through the charmingly animated video they created, and give them a little support.

Last Friday, GOOD reported on an infuriating incident that went down at a Massachusetts Target.

A Target manager who's come to be known as "Target Tori," was harassed by Twitter troll David Leavitt for not selling him an $89 Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush for a penny.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

In a typical work day, people who smoke take more breaks than those who do not. Every few hours they pop outside to have a smoke and usually take a coworker with them.

Don Bryden, Managing director at KCJ Training and Employment Solutions in Swindon, England, thinks that nonsmokers and smokers should be treated equally, so he's giving those who refrain from smoking four extra days to compensate.

Funny enough, Bryden is a smoker himself.
