#54: Add two more monthly causes

Just like in 2016 and 2017, we wanted to continue expanding our contributions to causes we believe in. (Note: this post might be interpreted as political; whether you agree with our choices or not, we encourage you to contribute to those movements you believe in.)

This is part of our 100 Things in 2018 challenge. 

This year we added two causes to the monthly-donation list.

  1. The DCCC is a clearinghouse for funding Democratic election candidates across the USA. In lieu of donating to specific candidates, we decided to support a broad base of them in one fell swoop.
  2. Advance Peace “is dedicated to ending cyclical and retaliatory gun violence in American urban neighborhoods.” They work closely with those young people most at risk for gun crime, and help them break out of the cycle of violence. It’s a small program, but has seen some real success, and we want to see them try it in more cities.

We know our dollars are going towards promoting causes and outcomes we believe in, and we feel better knowing that our good fortune is spread out a little bit.
