My first 5% Day donation went to Mercy Corps!
I don't make a lot of money, so I didn't have a lot to donate, but since Mercy Corps helps refugees and disaster survivors and every dollar helps, I thought that would be a good place to start with my idea of making a stand for a world I want to live in. Because there's an awful lot of this feeling that there's nothing we can do, and the world is going to shit, and we're just stuck here trying to keep our heads down. Who wants to live in a world like that??
So I decided to give 5% of each month's income to a charity I like, supporting something I believe in. This month it's MC; next month, I think it'll be an environmental conservancy. Or something to do with supporting women. We'll see what feels right when I get there.
If you want to donate to Mercy Corps, go here.
Now back to your regularly scheduled creativity / writing / journaling / life discussions until the end of next month!
