Hi! If you’re looking for some Black Friday d-d-d-d-dealzzzzz, then you’ve come to the right place! I’m about to tell you a few of the places where you can get an excellent bang for your buck this holiday season:
The Spot: American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)
The Deal: Donating here will help to preserve and protect your individual rights and liberties! (A real bargain when you imagine the terrifying possibilities over the next four years!)
The Spot: Planned Parenthood
The Deal: Putting your money towards this nonprofit will help to provide sexual and reproductive health services across the country. VERY IMPORTANT.
The Spot: The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)
The Deal: A donation to this organization will help to combat baseless Islamophobia by promoting a positive image of Islam and Muslims here in the US. Again, very important considering Donald Trump’s stance on Muslims in America.
The Spot: The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP)
The Deal: Donate to the NAACP to protect the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights, and to help eliminate race-based discrimination, which will be absolutely crucial during Donald Trump’s four-year term as POTUS.
The Spot: Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN)
The Deal: This anti-sexual assault organization works with local rape crisis centers across the entire US. Seeing as our president-elect is an advocate for sexual harassment, and has sent a toxic message that it’s okay, a donation here is crucial.
The Spot: The Southern Poverty Law Center
The Deal: Fight hate groups and bigotry (both on the rise since the election) by making a donation here.
The Spot: Campaign Zero
The Deal: By donating here you’ll show support for the Black Lives Matter movement through police reform.
The Spot: Standing Rock
The Deal: The irony of the terrible things that are happening in North Dakota this Thanksgiving is next-level. You can help by donating. (You can also book a ticket out there, but don’t do that if you are inexperienced or under-prepared // you’ll just end up exhausting valuable resources, so it’s better to donate instead.)
The Spot: The Trevor Project
The Deal: This organization offers a 24-hour, toll-free, confidential hotline for LGBTQ+ youth contemplating suicide. Donate here and you might save a life.
The Spot: The Disability Rights Education and Defense Fund (DREDF)
The Deal: Advocate for the rights of people with disabilities (people who Trump has openly mocked) by making a donation to DREDF.
The Spot: The National Immigration Law Center (NILC)
The Deal: Protect the rights of low-income immigrants during Trump’s presidency by contributing here.
The Spot: Border Angels
The Deal: This organization focuses on US-Mexico border relations, and it advocates for immigration reform and social justice through education and outreach.
The Spot: The Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights
The Deal: Help to promote the safety and well-being of unaccompanied and separated immigrant children here in the US by making a donation to this organization. Absolutely important under this incoming administration.
The Spot: Sierra Club
The Deal: Donald Trump has said that climate change is a hoax, so a donation to this organization (which works to preserve the wilderness and pass environmental legislation) is without a doubt a crucial move.
