Our Favorite Charities
So here's the deal. If I don't finish 300 movies by April 1st, 2019, I'll donate $1000 to a charity of Tyler's choice. If I do make it, I pick the charity. And for every week I don't hit at least two movies, I donate $20 to one of the great charities below. Check 'em out.
Forest and Sea Fund
The Forest and Sea Fund supports forest and ocean conservation projects around the world. If you head over to CarboTax.org you can calculate your climate impact and pay a voluntary monthly "carbon tax" in order to offset your carbon impact. Why not check it out, even if you don't end up donating it's interesting to learn about your carbon footprint. And if you do choose to donate, not only will you feel less guilty every time you flick on a light, but you'll be helping to offset carbon impact across the world!
Citizens' Climate Lobby
Coal has a lobby. Oil's has a lobby. Who's lobbying on behalf of addressing climate change? The Citizens' Climate Lobby. They're a non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change by training and supporting volunteers to work elected officials, the media and their local community. By donating you'd be helping to build support for the climate action we need.
For the past century, Planned Parenthood has transformed women's health and empowered millions of people worldwide to make informed health decisions. One of the cool things about supporting Planned Parenthood is that your donation will be shared equally between your local Planned Parenthood affiliate and Planned Parenthood Federation of America. If you can spare even a few bucks, consider helping them out. Everyone needs health care and education!
American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)
For nearly 100 years, the ACLU has helped defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties that the Constitution and the laws of the United States guarantee everyone in this country.
Whether it’s achieving full equality for LGBT people, establishing new digital privacy protections, ending mass incarceration, or preserving the right to vote or have an abortion, donating helps the ACLU takes up the toughest civil liberties issues to defend all people from government abuse and overreach.
