Giving Tuesday To-Dos

Posted by

It’s Giving Tuesday, and my inbox is flooded with solicitations for additional contributions from the charities that my husband and I support throughout the year.  They are all worthy causes, and I would empty my bank account for each of them if it were practical. However, we have three college tuitions to pay and bills rolling in every day. Still, I would like to participate in Giving Tuesday in order to reaffirm the value of the American commitment to indiviudal charity and as a statement of our own family values, which is particularly important given the identity of our president-elect and his cabinet.  So, I share below my personal top 10 for Giving Tuesday in hope that you might be attracted to these charities or inspired to contribute to your own top 10 today.

International Rescue Committee
