Because Donations are a Girl’s Best Friend

11-21birthdaygrab_720.jpg

Your DGB for today is to celebrate Daily Grab Back’s first birthday by donating to one of six organizations we’re highlighting today.

By our calculations, we’ve been at this a whole year. Holy guacamole, that’s a lot of Grabbing! And what, you ask, do we want wrapped up in a pretty bow for our birthday? Well, world peace and an end to patriarchal white supremacy would do nicely, thankyouverymuch. But if that doesn’t fit in the back of your Prius, we’d love it if instead you donate a few bucks to one of these worthy causes:

http://www.feedingamerica.org/find-your-local-foodbank/ - People in your community are going hungry this holiday season, and you can help. Giving cash to food banks goes even further than donating actual food, but every bit helps.

http://justbeinc.wixsite.com/justbeinc/home - Just Be, Inc. is a great organization dedicated to the needs of girls and young women of color and the originator of the sexual assault #MeToo social media campaign.

http://www.emilyslist.org/- As this November revealed, women have been running for office in record numbers, and totally crushing it. Emily’s List is behind a lot of these amazing women and their rise to leadership roles.

http://www.seashepherd.org/ - The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society is an international group dedicated to protecting marine wildlife, with its own fleet that engages in direct action to protect animal species and ecosystems.

https://www.narf.org/ - For almost 50 years, the Native American Rights Fund has been offering legal assistance to native groups and individuals, protecting tribal lands, defending civil rights, and more.

https://www.habitat.org/ - Habitat For Humanity helps families and communities build housing for themselves and others all over the world. Right now HFH is involved in the rebuilding efforts in Puerto Rico, where it’s desperately needed.
