Considering that this list is going to end with a substantial donation to TRI (I hope!), it seemed fitting to kick off my list by setting up monthly donations to some of my favorite non-profits and charities.
- In honor of my friend Michelle, I’ll be donating monthly to the Arthritis Foundation.
- In honor of my friend Sam, my co-worker Laura, and my librarian role model Joan I’ll be donating monthly to the HERA Women’s Ovarian Cancer Foundation.*
- In honor of my wife Amy, I’ll be donating monthly to the National Center for Lesbian Rights.
- In honor of all women who deserve to have full reproductive choice everywhere, I’ll be donating monthly to Planned Parenthood.
- In honor of the education I received that has given me the means to make enough money to donate to other places regularly, I’ll be donating monthly to my alma mater, the College of St. Benedict.*
