Here’s One Thing We Can All Do Today to Help Enact Change
Though we don’t typically use this space for anything political or even particularly personal, we woke up this morning, as so many did, with a heavy heart and an urge to do something that matters. At the heart of it, Sight Unseen has always been about providing inspiration and creating a platform for unheard voices. Today, we plan to use that platform for a different cause. Starting now, we are launching a fundraiser called Design for Progress. Voting with our ballots didn’t work, so we’re going to vote with our wallets, providing assistance to causes that will almost certainly be under attack under America’s new administration. We hope you’ll join us.
On Generosity.com, we’ve created a fundraiser to benefit to some of the organizations we feel are doing important work to protect groups and issues in need of the most support after this election: Planned Parenthood, Everytown for Gun Safety, the ACLU, the Southern Poverty Law Center, Human Rights Campaign, EarthJustice, and the National Immigration Law Center. To anyone feeling powerless, marginalized, scared, or angry today, this is one small thing we can all do to help.
**Because we’re not a nonprofit and online donation services limit fundraisers to one beneficiary, we will be making equal donations to the above chosen organizations on everyone’s behalf. If you’d prefer to, or if it’s important that you get a tax deduction for your donation, please follow the links below to give directly. We’ve included our chosen organizations, as well as a few others. We don’t care how these organizations get the help they need to create action; we only care that they DO get it, and soon.
