My year of giving charitably week 36 This is getting harder and harder. I could just throw darts at the wall. It is, after all only $5 but that seems to miss the point. This week's $5 is informed by reading #TheLocustEffect

Give $1 and I will match it for 'Poor Families in Tibetan Plateau'. https://onetoday.google.com/m/irlckfc-
Did you know? There are nearly 18.5 million rural poor in China.

My year of giving charitably week 35 The program is free to the youth it serves, it has evidence that it works, Guidestar gives them a bronze rating. That's enough for me. Let's do this together. Give $1 and I will match it for 'Safe Spaces for Youth'. https://onetoday.google.com/m/jcknctoe
Did you know? Young people were responsible for about 75 percent of Mott Haven’s shootings in 2012, and nearly all of the gun violence in 2011. (40th Precinct)

I hope I get enough miles before I die that maybe NASA will send a milligram or so of my ashes to Mars.

My year of giving charitably week 34 This time it's not so much what they do or who they serve, it's how well they do it. The One Today upgrade now includes a link to Guidestar; a great resource if you want to do some due diligence. Give $1 and I will match it for 'Overcome learning disabilities'. https://onetoday.google.com/m/hbjfaobj
Did you know? Only 40% of Bolivian children graduate from secondary school. Students with learning disabilities are especially likely to fall behind and drop out.

Here's a warning for you. Whatever you do:

1) Don't speak truth to power
2) Don't have a non-standard gender identification
3) Don't keep toothpaste after it's expiration date

Yes, in this case number 3 is connected to numbers 1 and 2.

My year of giving charitably week 32 I'm on vacation and my worst problem is a crap internet connection. My $5 is an embarrassingly small amount. Help me be less embarrassed. Give $1 and I will match it for 'Refugees fleeing violence'. https://onetoday.google.com/m/3ypag27b
Did you know? Over 2 million Iraqis and Syrians have sought refuge in neighboring countries

I just signed but as an amateur beekeeper, I admit to self-interest.

#beekeeping   #neonics  #pesticides
 
bees pollinate and we need to eat
I just took action urging Ace and True Value Hardware stores to stop selling bee-killing pesticides. I think you should too.

Thanks for the heads up! I'll be sure to let others know.

My year of giving charitably week 33 I don't know exactly why but this one appeals to me. Maybe because it seems like something out of a William Gibson novel. Maybe it's just because this is the first time I've encountered a .ngo domain. Anyway, find your own reason to give $1 and I will match it for 'Education for children living in poverty'. https://onetoday.google.com/m/uvvsrued
Did you know? Approximately 40% of Africans over the age of 15 are illiterate.

Harvested a frame of basswood honey with my grandson. Did a crush and strain extraction. Doesn't get much better than this.
