Where Leah’s donation went

Leah won our “most commenting of 2017″ contest .  That means she got to pick where we donated our previous month’s blog earnings to.  How much did we donate?  We topped it up so that we could give $50.

Where did she pick?  Advancement Project

According to its website:

Advancement Project works in deep partnership with organized communities of color to dismantle and reform the unjust and inequitable policies that undermine the promise of democracy through the development of community-based solutions to racial justice issues.

Here’s their charity navigator page—  looks pretty good.

    Congrats Leah! Thanks for sharing this charity, that’s a really good cause.

  2. Leah Says:

    Thank you! And I found the charity by looking around for something that promoted diverse representation. This was right after Doug Jones was elected, and I wanted to tip my hat to the strong black women at the grassroots. I think that’s the future of our country.

    This morning is a good one to pick something from 5calls to call about. Here’s one: https://5calls.org/issue/stop-rollback-of-dodd-frank-protections . It’s also a good time to see when and where your closest March for our Lives is. Here’s a link: https://event.marchforourlives.com/event/march-our-lives-events/ I was also able to donate $25 to our local march (they’re trying to raise $500 for expenses related to the march) from following that link.
