History/purpose: I am not a fan of the recently passed tax cuts. They favor the wealthy and will likely increase income inequality in our country. I received my first paycheck with the cut and decided I needed to do something positive with the extra money. I was getting along fine without it so I don't need to keep it. My plan is to take the amount of my tax cut and give it to a different charity every month. I am hoping some other folks that don't need it to get by might think this is a good idea and join me. We will raise money for those groups which are marginalized or under siege by the current administration. Future fundraisers will be for LGBTQ, environmental, reproductive rights, immigrant support, etc. organizations.
Charity of the Month: This month we will donate to a domestic violence charity. We all know someone who has been a victim of abuse or assault, it is rampant in our society. Unfortunately, we have a president that always chooses to believe the abuser. Let's take the money from his "big, beautiful" cuts and help the people he demeans.
