A reader messaged me recently asking if I would put up a post for brainstorming about charities to donate to—charities that do good work, and don’t spend too much on overhead. A lot of people, myself included, have been thinking this week about ways they can make a difference locally and across the country through donating to charities—especially those focused on immigrants, LGBTQ individuals, women’s healthcare, and the environment—and through engaging in volunteer work.
Let’s brainstorm. What charities and volunteer opportunities have you been exploring? Jezebel has posted a list. What lists have you seen? What would you add?
