With Summer Comes the Time for Household Donations Again

Each quarter, my household donates to various charities.  In the autumn and winter, we tend to focus on veterans’ organizations and charities like Paralyzed Veterans of America and the British Legion. Those are two that we really like (and I am open to suggestions of others).

In the spring and summer, we tend to focus more on educational charities and food/agricultural things. We’ll donate to Heifer (you can buy bees for people! My favorite thing. : ) ), Big Sur Land Trust (my adopted mom’s favorite place), and one that many of you might not be familiar with, and the reason I’m mentioning it now: DonorsChoose.

A high school teacher told me about this charity years and years ago and I really like it. Teachers can post projects that they are doing for their classrooms, for which they otherwise have no funding (because let’s face it, our educational system in this country is quite broken). It allows these teachers from all different grades and disciplines to open up their projects to outside donations and it’s lovely. So I’m posting largely to recommend this one to readers who may be looking for a way to support teachers and their work.

That is all. Let me know what charities you guys recommend. (What i’d really like to see is a polytheist run and focused charity, non-political, that focuses on helping those with long term illnesses and injuries with their medical costs. We’re not there yet, but maybe one day we will be).

  1. I recommend donating to a local food bank. Sadly, food is always needed at food banks.
    BTW, love the idea of a polytheist run and focused charity. Very cool idea! 🙂

  2. Honestly with the war on women right now, Planned Parenthood. They don’t give a Fuck (outside of what’s needful for medical history) what your race, gender, orientation, or religion is. They’re just going to give you the medical care you need, and fight for women to have autonomy of their own bodies.
