I’ll be completely honest: almost nothing I had hoped for this past week went as planned. Quality time with friends and lots of girl talk and comfort food has been a big help. And since my vote can’t do all the talking, I’m letting my wallet do the talking too. Some great organizations that I’ve been donating to:
♥ City University of New York Graduate School of Journalism, because I believe in a free press. (More on why you should invest in journalism here.)
♥ Planned Parenthood, because I believe in affordable access to quality healthcare.
♥ Human Rights Campaign, because I believe in LGBTQ equality.
♥ International Rescue Committee, because I believe in an America that is a beacon of hope across the world.
♥ RAINN, because I believe in the survivors of sexual violence.
If anything, this week has taught me two things: we need more compassion, and we need to fight for what we believe in. What do you believe in?
P.S. Back to more light-hearted posting tomorrow.
