Hey, it's #GivingTuesday!

What could a donation to our new Investigative Journalism Fund mean for local reporting?

Your support would nearly *double* the size of our investigative team — helping us keep more folks in power accountable. 👇

miamiherald.com/site-services/…
Our goal is to raise $1.5 million for reporting efforts spread over three years.

That means adding:
• two full-time reporters
• a data visualization specialist
• a videographer
• an editor to our existing team
miamiherald.com/news/local/new…
We'll launch the Miami Herald Investigative Journalism Fund when we reach $500,000 in support.

On #GivingTuesday (and #GivingNewsDay), help us do more of what we do best — investigative journalism.

The Trump wall gofundme is at $25,296,700 in 11 months.

Our goal is only $210k. We've been campaigning for 1 year 6 months to get clean water to Flint.

If anyone reading this can help us reach our goal, please consider donating & sharing. #GivingTuesday gofundme.com/rvaflint-water…
In America, we don’t turn our backs on our neighbors when they need help. After watching everyone on social media forget about thousands of Americans struggling due to the water crisis, we decided to create our own campaign to help Flint. #SaveFlintChallenge #GivingTuesday
Thank you Ben Stiller for supporting our #SaveFlintChallenge campaign, but we have so much more work to do. Please tweet our campaign link and encourage your followers to contribute. #FlintWaterCrisis #GivingTuesday @RedHourBen

On this #GivingTuesday, if you support a presidential candidate and want them to be able to stay in the race, you should consider giving a donation to their campaign.

I just gave to Elizabeth Warren.

Here’s the link to her campaign’s donation page:

donate.elizabethwarren.com
I just also donated to Julián Castro.

We need his voice in the debates and in this presidential race.

Here is his campaign’s donation link:
secure.actblue.com/donate/julianf…

#GivingTuesday
Here are cropped copies of my contribution receipts to Warren and Castro.

I want you to trust I am doing what I say in the hope it will prompt you to act as well.

Fwiw, I’m broke af right and had planned to fundraise for my own work today.

But, right now, this matters more.

From gathering moss to a multi-million dollar industry, we’re about to bring you the #WW1 story you never knew you always needed. It’s a tale of sacrifice, service … and sanitary napkins.

Open wounds and blood loss can be some of the most dangerous issues on the battlefield.
First aid chests and U.S. Hospital Corps belts would be sure to contain sterile dressings to staunch bleeding. A kit with tools to stop bleeding.A kit with tools to stop bleeding.
During #WW1, sphagnum moss was used to create bandages and dressings like this one. While moss may seem like a weird fit, it was super absorbent, with antiseptic properties, and grew plentifully in America. A large absorbent pad.

A #GivingTuesday message from @hopeforhenry: Nine-year-old Oscar relapsed with leukemia and was admitted to Children’s Hospital at Montefiore (NYC) for a bone marrow transplant....
2/ “... Understandably, when Oscar learned he had to remain on isolation precautions for up to 8 weeks in his hospital room, he was very upset. He was enrolled him in Hope for Henry’s Super Path to Super Duper Better to reward him for adhering to his medical plan....
3/“... Oscar earned Hope for Henry Bucks when his port was accessed and when he received radiation. He even earned Bucks for eating and drinking, bathing, and working with the clinical team. Very quickly, these challenges became easier....

1/ On this #GivingTuesday (or #GivingNewsDay), we’ll let our members do the talking. Why? Simply put: They’re the best. Their support has gotten us to 10 years. Today, we’re hoping you’ll join us for our next decade of nonprofit, nonpartisan news. trib.it/Gm4
2/ As Lance puts it, "This is too important not to be members." We agree with that even more than usual because today we have $20,000 in matching funds from @NewsMatch on the line! Donate by midnight to help us secure the full match: trib.it/Gm4
@NewsMatch 3/ Holding elected officials accountable is our top job. Like Anthony said, and as anyone who's ever met him knows, @evanasmith does not allow half steps. That's why we always say what we mean — and mean what we say, especially on #GivingTuesday Join us: trib.it/Gm4

hellohellohello! The #GivingTuesday thread is here! No shortage of causes to care about. Pick something that won’t leave you alone; then, volunteer, donate $, and/or advocate to your elected official. Here are some orgs that my family donates to:
Independent journalism is the backbone of any social movement & change. @cpipr does that & more for 🇵🇷.
The @cpipr investigation led to uncovering over 4k died as result of #HurricaneMaria; brought corrupt chats to public from the [now former!] Governor, ignited massive peaceful public protests until he resigned; every day they produce unbiased reporting.

1/ Today is #GivingTuesday, and I'm here to remind you why you should support @MotherJones with a tax-deductible donation. Last year I proved that contra to fundraising CW, that Tweeps are generous. Ever little bit helps! secure.motherjones.com/flex/mj/key/7M…
@MotherJones 2/ We've been fundraising this whole year to make sure we can keep growing sustainably, without boom and bust layoffs that dog journalism——but #GivingTuesday is key to our ability to keep bringing you smart, fearless journalism.
@MotherJones 3/ Anyway, last year Brian, our membership guy, insisted I couldn't raise money via Twitter. I won my bet, so now he's challenged me to find just 300 people who'll give $5 a month. He made me my own link so he can track. secure.motherjones.com/flex/mj/key/7M… I need your help to beat Brian!

It's time to #EndTheStigma. Read on for my personal story.
1 in 5 people will experience a diagnosable mental illness of some sort in 2020. 1 in 4 will have one at some point during their lifetimes.

For some, mental illness is a single episode at a particularly difficult point in time. For others, it is a lifelong burden.

*tags random*
Bipolar disorder affects ~2% of our society. It's characterized by marked fluctuations in mood, from high (mania) to low (depression). Some people become psychotic if the mood episodes are severe enough. But that doesn't make them scary.

Here's some tips for talking with your climate-denying relatives this #Thanksgiving. First, recognize that there is only a small chance of changing a climate denying cranky uncle about climate change. Some studies quantify the odds at 1 in 50! 1/5
This is because the very same science that a cranky uncle approves of in a missile is rejected if they think it threatens their ideology. 2/5
So pointing out reasoning fallacies in your cranky uncle's climate-denying arguments isn't about changing his mind, it's about inoculating everyone else against misinformation. Like exposing the sleight of hand in a magician's trick. 3/5

This #GivingTuesday we’re hosting an #AntiPhonathon! We hate making phone calls, and we know many other autistic people do too, so we won’t be calling you to ask for money. Instead, we’re asking asking you to help us spread the word.
#GivingTuesday is happening December 3rd this year! #GivingTuesday is a chance to donate to causes you care about, in the spirit of the holiday season.
Last year, our amazing community raised $8,000 on #GivingTuesday. This helped ASAN meet our goals throughout 2019, including the release of our new proxy calling system. autisticadvocacy.org/2019/11/asans-…

UCANR trains Master Gardeners to be a source of fact-based advice on gardening, including food gardening, sustainable methods of landscaping & pest control for free to every Californian. This is a vital service esp to poor people who grow their groceries. #GivingTuesday
There are LOADS of worthy organizations that could use your help on #GivingTuesday or any other day of the year. I'm going to highlight a few that I feel don't get much attention, some of whom are very shy in their fundraising, like UCANR.

Did you know that military families frequently struggle with debt — and when they do, it raises their risk for depression, substance abuse and suicide? That equation affects a lot of people in the communities our newsrooms serve — and it’s one we can help change.
We’ve launched The #WarWithin Initiative in partnership with @RIPMedicalDebt, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that buys medical debt in bulk, for pennies on the dollar — and erases it.
@RIPMedicalDebt The money we raise will be used specifically to buy and abolish the medical debt of servicemembers, veterans and their families around the country. Each family we help will receive a letter telling them their debt has been forgiven, and they never have to worry about it again.
