Good morning. Hey, hi. It’s been a little while. I have taken a break from the blog because everything I was writing was angry, frustrated, and had a distinct “burn it all to the ground” vibe. My brain has been toggling between deep sadness over the constant news of sexual predators EVERYWHERE, disgust with our predator-president (Presitor? Predident?), and building a business. It’s a tornado of angry colors swatches inside my brain.
Anyway, I am not talking about that garbage, I am surprisingly optimistic today, probably because I haven’t read the news yet, and I want to share a few things.
Giving Tuesday was this week, which is a real thing where people donate to a cause they care about or throw $30 at something a friend from high school posted on Facebook. A lot of very deserving organizations push for fundraising this time of year, but it feels SUPER overwhelming to receive all those emails asking for money when you are trying to figure out how the hell you are going to afford buying presents for the holidays.
My long-winded solution is this special little secret: IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE TUESDAY FOR YOU TO GIVE A SHIT. Sorry for yelling, but this is how I feel about it. The thought of caring about the less fortunate one day a year is pretty gross to me, so this week I am sharing information on a few organizations that I know very closely that I know need support. I trust the people in charge, know about the tight budgets they work on, and know where the money goes. If you have any questions about them, let me know and I will find the answer for you.
