Here’s the deal: I fail to see the point of me calling out the misdeeds of political figures in this country without also spending effort to do good. So, that’s why I’m writing this.
If you’re mad, disappointed, shocked, or appalled at the recent comments and longer-term racist undertones of one or a number of political entities, then this post is for you.
If you’re mad, frustrated, exasperated, or incredulous that a certain political party seems to paint everything your political leaders say in a bad light, then this post is for you.
I don’t care what color your political affiliation is, I care that we often lose sight of the other humans who are struggling to make their own nations as great as possible. So, without lecturing you on why you should care about this or racism or any of that, I’m going to simply leave a few links below.
These links are to charities that I’ve heard good things about. Feel free to look at them or find your own. Whatever you do, do something positive first, post about what you did in the comments so we can all be inspired together, and THEN go back to Twitter and Facebook and continue yelling at each other.
https://hopeforhaiti.com/ – This organization is focused on Haiti, especially helping children. They look like they’re doing good things.
https://www.worldvision.org/donate – World Vision is a large organization and does a lot of good work around the world. I don’t know if you can donate to a specific country, but donating to their general fund will definitely be helping people who need it.
http://www.ijm.org/give – IJM is focused on justice, specifically with modern-day slavery and human trafficking.
