I know everyone is cash strapped this time of year, but if you have a couple dollars that are not accounted for, how about considering giving yourself a little gift and sending some money to the good people at the ACLU and at Democracy Now! Both of these organizations are invaluable, and both need our support.
If you would like to give to the ACLU, their donation page is here. The ACLU really is one of my favorite organizations, and I’ve said before, they are you friend when you have no others. They are a pillar of what this country stands for, and the range of issues they address is rather wide.
Again, I know money is tight, and around here, with a car in the shop looking at several thousand in repairs, I’m in the same boat. But these are good groups, and if you can spare anything, now is a good time to give.
