#GivingTuesday - Now More Than Ever


Still reeling from the election? Wondering how to make the world a better place? Give generously.

Need help? A curated list* of charities is below. Does your mother-in-law really need another tchotcke for Christmas? Give a gift in her name to the ACLU. Surely your father doesn't need another tie. Give a gift to the Human Rights Campaign. Your great-aunt? Hell, skip Christmas cards, and donate what you would have spent on printing and postage to the Committee to Protect Journalists.

HUMAN RIGHTS, INTERNATIONAL AND GENERAL


EMPOWERING GIRLS + WOMEN

RACE

LGBT

EDUCATION

IMMIGRATION / REFUGEES

FREEDOM OF RELIGION

FREEDOM OF THE PRESS

DOMESTIC HUNGER

ARTS (because all children need a chance to dance)



* Thanks to Christine Koh at Boston Mamas and Joanna Rothkopf at Jezebel for excellent lists that I riffed on.

** The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence accepts donations of cell phones (as well as cash). Clean out your drawers!

I like your list. It gave me great pleasure to spend Giving Tuesday by making donations to a variety of environmental, cultural, and human rights organizations. Like striking a small defiant blow against the forces of darkness threatening to take us back 50 or 500 years now.
