How You Can Support Groups Making A Difference By #BudgetingForGood
At TFD, we know that just making a healthy budget is not enough. We must use our budgets as the tools they are to live the lives we dream of, and to create the change that is so desperately needed in our world. And if you can afford it, setting up recurring donations is an awesome, sustainable way to continue helping make the world a better place.
All this week, TFD will feature a different organization every day which our team has selected to receive a $1,000 donation. We’ll be sharing a little about the important work they do, and why we have chosen to support them.
We’ll also be encouraging you to join in — to donate, to spread the word about these organizations, to share some of your favorites — using the hashtag #BudgetingForGood, and we’ll be re-sharing all the amazing work our community is doing.
Friday’s Organization: Black Mamas Matter Alliance
We are proud to support Black Mamas Matter because of the amazing work they are doing to improve Black maternal health, rights, and justice while centering Black women’s leadership.
Thursday’s Organization: The Audre Lorde Project
We are proud to support The Audre Lorde Project because of the incredible work they are doing to support LGBTSTGNC People of Color communities right in our own backyard in New York City. For instance, with their Safe OUTside the System (SOS) Collective, they are challenging hate and police violence by using community-based strategies rather than relying on the police.
Wednesday’s Organization: The National Council for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls
Today’s organization receiving $1,000 in our #BudgetingForGood campaign is The National Council for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls. We are proud to support this organization for the tireless work they are doing to repeal the 1994 crime bill and enact transformative changes to the justice system at the federal, state, and local levels. If their mission moves you, and you want to share your support or promotion of their cause, share it with #BudgetingForGood so we can show the whole community.
Today’s organization receiving $1,000 in our #BudgetingForGood campaign is The Okra Project. They are a collective that seeks to address the global crisis faced by Black Trans people by bringing them home-cooked, healthy, and culturally specific meals and resources wherever they can reach them.
We are proud to support The Okra Project because they pay Black Trans chefs to go into the homes of Black Trans people to cook them a healthy and home-cooked meal at absolutely no cost to the recipients.
If their mission moves you, and you want to share your support or promotion of their cause, share it with #BudgetingForGood so we can show the whole community! And don’t forget, if there is another cause you support, tell us more about it on the hashtag — we want to learn from one another in our community and grow the list of worthy causes who have our attention.
