Dear Friends, This Trump Admin keeps knocking the wind out of many of us but we must keep pushing back and do something (however big or small) ... Let's remind them what makes America great is that we protect the inherent worth and dignity of every person and we will also protect the earth for future generations to come. Some days I feel helpless and overcome with all that there is to do. This is why I'm hoping to do a small part in helping groups that need our help. I am attempting to run 26.2 miles across the city I love so very much. I haven't come close to running so many miles (Sorry online coach) but I will try and would love your support on November 5th, 2017. Please help me support the following organizations doing their share to make the world a better place:
FOOD BANK FOR NYC Because NY'ers look out for each other and kids, seniors and veterans going to bed hungry in our city is unacceptable. Food Bank for NYC is the city’s largest hunger-relief organization helping the most vulnerable New Yorkers overcome their circumstances and achieve greater independence.
NRDC Because Climate change is real and I don't want my kids, grandkids or any kid drinking sludge water. With the expertise of scientists, lawyers, and policy advocates across the globe NRDC helps ensure the rights of all people to clean air, water and healthy communities.
COMMITTEE TO PROTECT JOURNALISTS Because we need to support those getting to the truth. Journalists have experienced digital threats, cyber harassment, financial pressure from an industry in flux, and a host of other technologically-inflected threats. We must not let corporate greed and regressive governments dictate our sources of information.
CENTER FOR REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS Because Our bodies our choice. The input of our families, faith and doctors are already in our decision making thought process. How many people need to be involved with such personal choices for our lives?! We are not just vessels. Center for reproductive rights supports and advocates for laws to advance reproductive freedom as a fundamental human right that all governments should be legally obligated to protect and respect.
THE CENTER FOR ARTS EDUCATION Because music, art and creative content make the word a better place. Lets plant the seed early for future generations of artists, musicians, film makers and writers. CAE works to ensure every child in every school receives a well-rounded education that includes the arts.
MOUNT SINAI HOSPITAL to support Neo-Intensive Care Unit. Giving newborns a chance for a healthy life.
Its an ambitious amount but lets give it a try, please consider donating. You can pick which org you'd like to support.
