Tuesday Mood: Give It Up.

It's Giving Tuesday, so here are a few organizations that we like and support:

First, The Brigid Alliance supports people who must travel long distances across the U.S. for abortion care, especially later in pregnancy. They provide travel expenses, child care, meals, lodging, practical support, etc. 

The Center for Reproductive Rights and Planned Parenthood are also great places to throw some money. And, consider supporting Equality Now. Their goal is to “Achieve legal and systemic change that addresses violence and discrimination against women and girls around the world.” 

Marianne suggests donating to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a volunteer and donor-powered charity committed to supporting the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers. She also suggests donating to your local children's hospital - specifically$10 gift cards for gas or food for the families of children with cancer. (Many families have to travel long distances to their regional hospital.) 

If you love animals, I've long been a supporter of the Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee which provides captive elephants a safe haven dedicated to their well-being.

I also love supporting the Richmond Animal League, the shelter back home where I adopted both my kitties. 


Now that you've given all your money to good causes, I'm going to be a total ass and tell you about a couple of lingering good sales:

R+Co has extended their 30% off sale with code CYBER30. I really love their Cactus shampoo, Television conditioner, Rodeo Star thickening style foam and most recently I've been digging the Park Ave blow out balm. Popular items tend to sell out fast but they do restock! 

Bombas, makers of my very favorite socks, are offering 20% off sitewide. I love the Performance Ankle for the gym and the Running Calf are my favorite boot socks.  Also, the compression socks are legit! 

LAFCO, makers of my favorite fancy candles, are offering 25% off sidewide with code CYBER2022. These candles come in gorgeous (and reusable) hand-blown glass containers and are beautifully boxed, so easy to give as gifts! My favorites are Amber, Rosemary Eucalyptus, and Woodland Spruce.
