So, after Black Friday and Cyber Monday, people have called today 'Giving Tuesday' for a few years and this might be a good place to put some organizations you think are worth other people's time and money.

For my part, I've been working with a syringe exchange and harm reduction organization for the last 6 months and it's been one of the most beneficial and extraordinary things I've done and seen up close. We provide clean needles and supplies to keep people safe, as well as overdose reversal supplies, which have saved over 300 people this year alone. The experience of speaking to people who are alive because of our intervention in their life is astonishing and so, I'm trying to raise some money for them today, especially because, as the grants and other funding that keeps us alive have been pretty much expended for the year, the organization is struggling to keep up with the demands it has for the holiday season.

We've got more information and a fundraiser here:

And I've got a FB fundraiser going through my birthday (12/5) here:

Any amount is great!
