Every year, I highlight a dozen (or more) charities during the first 12 days of December, both here and on Twitter. I usually choose a range of different organizations to feature, but as a result of the events of the past month, my list of charities for 2016 is a bit different.
This time, I’ve deliberately focused on organizations in the United States (though some are also international) that are working for social justice and civil rights, as well as those supporting marginalized groups. If anyone’s going to need the help the next few years, it’s going to be them.
With that in mind, I’ve already made my donations to each group. It might not be much, but every bit helps. I haven’t gone into my usual detail on each group, but there are links so you can check them out and donate as you’re able.
