Today is #GivingTuesday. It’s a time for charities to get some much needed donations as people look at their end of year giving. There are a lot of good causes out there that need your money. Check with your place of employment to see if they do any matching. Facebook is also matching today if the donation is made through the Facebook page.
Here are some suggestions of good liberal causes and a way to show your resistance at the same time:
Give to the Human Rights Campaign in VP Mike Pence’s name (have the thank you cards sent to One Observatory Circle in DC)
Give to the ACLU in the name of any republican you know (your neighbor with the Trump/Pence sign for instance).
Find a local charity, food bank, homeless shelter and donate in your own name. Start a canned food drive at work or get a blood drive going with your local blood bank or the American Red Cross.
If you can’t donate today, your money is good any time with these (and any charity). Keep them in mind when you’re making your budget for next year. If you can’t donate money, donate your time: take your kids with your or get a group of friends together. There is so much you can do – so do it. #Give #Fight #Resist
