I value inclusiveness, equality, stewardship of our earth and the right for every human being to be treated with dignity and respect.

I have spent a lot of time coming to terms with the turmoil I feel about the recent election results. The root of my shock and unease is the feeling that values I hold so strongly have been repudiated. The knowledge that so many of my fellow citizens either actively reject my values, or are willing to ignore an all out assault on them is disheartening and disappointing.

I support the rule of law, the peaceful transition of our government, and I hope that President-elect Trump will be a good President for all Americans.

But I will not stand by while my values are threatened. I will not riot. I will give.

Linc and I have started with a donation of $1,000 split among four charities, and will continue to support these charities as long as our government threatens our values.

I encourage you to take a stand and give to one or all of these charities.

Southern Poverty Law Center: https://www.splcenter.org/ They fight hate and bigotry while teaching tolerance by exposing hate groups and providing legal support for minorities who are victims of discrimination. We've already seen an explosion in hate and bigotry across our country - every person deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.

Trevor Project: http://www.thetrevorproject.org/ They offer crisis intervention and suicide prevention for LGBTQ youth. With the dramatic increase in overt discrimination in schools in the last few days I fear LGBTQ youth are most at risk. I want every young person to know they are loved, and have a home in this country.

National Organization For Woman Foundation: http://www.now.org They fight for women's rights and equality. We chose to give to the foundation (instead of the parent organization) since we do not want to our contributions to be used for political lobbying. We have seen increased incidents of discrimination against women and young girls. Every girl deserves the same opportunity for a prosperous future as boys.

Sierra Club: http://www.sierraclub.org/ They support environmental causes such as protecting wilderness and endangered species, as well as supporting legislation to ensure everyone in our country has access to clean air and water. A known climate skeptic is rumored to be head of the Environmental Protection Agency. Already the world is starting to see large, sustained increases in temperature which threatens our access to water, ability to produce food and drives severe weather patterns such as hurricanes. I want to ensure the progress made in the last decade in our country on renewable energy continues.

I haven't been as excited about a credit card for a while (I'm a bit of a credit card nerd...). The opportunity to earn 3% cash back on every purchase is pretty phenomenal. I also like the idea of no bank fees. Can't wait for this to launch. I encourage folks to check it out and sign up for the wait list.

We are selling our home in Kirkland. Lots of great memories, but it looks like we're going to stay in California a little while longer yet :)

My favorite feature is it's only 5 minutes from the Google office. At least it was before I moved to the Seattle office :)
