It’s #GivingTuesday!

27 Nov

Of course you’ve heard about Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. But have you heard about Giving Tuesday?#GivingTuesday is a new idea that allows people to give back to those in need this holiday season. Did you save a bunch of money by shopping on Black Friday and Cyber Monday? How about making a huge difference in the lives of those in need, and passing on some of your savings?

Here at AbortionGang, we know of a lot of organizations that are in need of donations. Unfortunately, we can’t list them all- but we will list some below, in case you’re not sure who you can give to (orgs are listed in alphabetical order, and are all equally worthy of your donations!)

Backline  - A toll free talk line for those who need to talk about pregnancy, parenting, adoption or abortion.
Canadian Federation for Sexual Health - An org working to improve access to reproductive healthcare, especially for youth.
Canadians for Choice - An organization that researches and advocates for reproductive health.
DC Abortion Fund - A great abortion fund, this link will take you to their Holiday Event page, where you can buy tickets or just make a donation if you don’t live in the area.
Ibis - A research organization that looks into all types of reproductive health and justice issues.
Ipas - an organization that works internationally to make abortion safe and accessible.
Massachusetts Alliance on Teen Pregnancy - an organization that works to prevent unplanned teen pregnancies, and also support and empower teen parents.
National Network of Abortion Funds - want to give to an Abortion Fund, but not sure where the biggest need is? Give to the national org!
New York Abortion Access Fund - Sandy interrupted the lives of New Yorkers in so many ways- including doctors appointments. Can you help the NYAAF out?
Patherfinder International - another great organization that spreads family planing access internationally.
PEI Reproductive Rights Organization - Want to give in Canada? Here’s an abortion fund in Canada.
Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice - a faith based group that empowers people of faith to speak out in support of Reproductive Justice.

Where are you giving today? Leave suggestions (and links!) in the comments.

    Supporting women in the Pacific Northwest with grassroots sexual and reproductive health education, abortion referrals, advocacy while navigating the Medicaid process, and providing more than $1000/week in direct abortion funding since 2002!

    Sorry, I won’t be giving to any of the above groups you mention. I was surprised that none of the groups mentioned above works to feed the hungry, or meet any other material needs of the underprivledged. Nor do any of them buy presents for low income kids.
    If you’re comcerned about Hurricane Sandy victims, the vast majority of them have no need for abortion, but they have many other needs. So why aren’t you suggesting donations to meet those needs?
    There are so many needy and worthy causes that we can give to. But none of them were mentioned. Give me a break guys. I’d rather feed and water the hungry and thirsty; or get clothes for those who don’t have any; or build houses for the homeless; or get heating and power to those who are cold. Well anyway, you get the idea. Why aren’t you guys into the same thing?
