Since I lost my job over the summer, I figured I wouldn’t do a MollyGive this year. However, as we’ve been moving through the final weeks, I started feeling sad about this.
My favorite thing about December is donating the money I saved throughout the year. So far it’s been to Casa Myrna, Free Software Foundation, Open Source Initiative, and Software Freedom Conservancy. (Also Parts & Crafts earlier in 2016.) Giving makes me happy, and giving is important to sustain and support the important (an frequently necessary) work of non-profits.
With that in mind, I want to spend the last two weeks of 2016 doing what I’ve done for the past few years: matching donations.
Make a donation of up to $100 to your favorite nonprofit(s), and I will match it until I am out of funds. Even if you think you’re too busy to volunteer, go to meetings, or participate in actions, you’re not too busy to make a major difference!
Here is last year’s MollyGive announcement, for some more info: http://deblanc.net/blog/2015/11/30/mollygive-2015/
