Since the embodiment of hate, ignorance, and greed will soon move into the White House, it is more important than ever to share our money, time, and resources with the most vulnerable among us and to the organizations whose priorities are love, inclusivity, and empowerment. If you don’t know where to give, below are a few of the causes I support on #GivingTuesday and all year round. Show some love for:
Baltimore Community ToolBank: Providing tools for over 300 member agencies to create positive change in their communities. https://www.razoo.com/story/Tools-For-Change
Baltimore Teacher Supply Swap: Putting educational materials in the hands of teachers and kids who need them. Simple, effective, necessary. https://teachersupplyswap.org/donate/
Itineris Baltimore: Dedicated to helping adults with autism work towards independence and gainful employment so they can participate meaningfully in all aspects of adult life. Awesome. http://bit.ly/2gEWZls
Chesapeake Climate Action Network: They are literally fighting for our lives. http://bit.ly/2gClvHv
Moveable Feast: Providing nutritious meals and groceries for men, women, and children living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. http://bit.ly/2g1Vy0v
And don’t forget our four-footed besties! Please support BARCS & MD SPCA. My prescription for getting through the next 4 years is to adopt a pet. Immediately. http://baltimoreanimalshelter.org/donate and http://www.mdspca.org/give/
There are many other worthy organizations. You can take my recommendations or leave them, as long as you are fighting the good fight. Put your money where your heart is.
