Between Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, Thanksgiving weekend definitely has its fair share of opportunities to do some shopping. If you’re looking for something a little different, however, today is Giving Tuesday which encourages people to use today to give to charity.
Over at Bilerico Report, Matt Baume has a list of 10 organizations that you can make donations to today. The list includes groups that work for a variety of progressive causes, but focuses in on those that help the LGBT community.
I actually have supported several of the groups on the list, including the Trevor Project (I donated to a fundraiser a friend of mine was doing for them a couple weeks ago). The Trevor Project helps prevent suicide among LGBT youth and can honestly say it saves lives.
If you have the funds available, I highly encourage you to donate to the Trevor Project or any of the other organizations on the list.
