This year is the 100th anniversary of International Women's Day, so check out Mashable's list of what you can do to show your appreciation for females around the world. Our favorite is a joint collaboration between Vivanista, CARE, and Sprinkles Cupcakes that helps you organize a Cupcake Party for a Purpose to meet with like-minded women in your area.

National Breakfast Day sounds like a pseudo-holiday fabricated by Kellogg to sell more breakfast cereal, but the company's latest campaign at shareyourbreakfast.com is so cool we don't even care.

For every picture that gets uploaded to the Web site, Kellogg will donate a breakfast to a hungry child with the help of Action for Healthy Kids, a nonprofit volunteer organization that helps out underserved children in America. More than 800 photos of breakfasts have already been uploaded, and you can even text a photo or description of yours with the word "Share" to 21534 or post a picture on Twitter with the accompanying hashtag #shareurbreakfast.

Wilson's all about the advancement of women and eating breakfast, but as usual he's distracted with this Friday's iPad 2 release. On the other hand, he's not as obsessed as this Texan already camped out in line to buy one. It's Justin Wagoner, the same dude who pitched a tent outside the same Apple Store in Dallas to get his hands on the first iPhone 4.

We wouldn't recommend running out to sit in the rain for the iPad 2, however--according to analyst Gene Muster with Piper Jaffray, the iPad 2 will release in more locations than the first-generation tablet, with more than 10,000 retail partner stores including Wal-Mart, Target, AT&T, and Verizon stores all carrying the iPad 2--not to mention the 236 countrywide Apple Stores also carrying units.
