The White Helmets – Ordinary women and men in Syria are doing extraordinary things to help their families, friends, and neighbors. The White Helmets should not need to exist but until such time as they are no longer needed, they need our support. Help save the lives of innocent Syrians by donating to their cause. We are complicit in their misery, and if even one Syrian father loves his children like I love mine then it’s my moral imperative to help.

Higher Heights – Higher Heights is building a national strategy to mobilize one million Black women and dollars by 2020 in order to harness their collective economic and voting power. Black women must be heard and we would be wise to listen and let them lead, too.

More charities will be added as time goes by. For now the White Helmets are likely in the most urgent need of financial assistance. You will be helping to save lives in real time, and that’s about the most beautiful thing you can do to help from afar.
