It will be as if The Survival Mama was wiped off the internet. In it’s place will be a page directing you to learn more about 2 very dangerous bills in front of Congress right now that will change the internet forever if passed.

SOPA and PIPA.

And the truth is? If these bills pass, it’s very possible that one day you could come to The Survival Mama and see a blank screen. It would be THAT easy for this site (or ANY site) to get SHUT DOWN.  Sites you visit every day, including: Etsy, YouTube, Tumblr, Pinterest, Facebook, and Yahoo! could be shut down if this bill passes. 

On January 18th from 8am EST-8pm EST, The Survival Mama will be joining sits like (Includes Wikipedia, Reddit, Google, WordPress and HUNDREDS or THOUSANDS more) and going on STRIKE!

Want to join in? Write Congress and tell them how you feel!

The internet has stopped wars, freed nations and helped small businesses (like this one!) thrive and grow and flourish. Don’t let Congress take away our freedom of speech. You wouldn’t let them do it offline, don’t let them do it offline.

Take action!
