#giveDecember Round #1: Goods for Good, FCancer, She’s The First, Grist

This is round #1 of our “Donating with Dwolla in December” campaign. We’re highlighting our favorite nonprofits that accept donations via Dwolla. After all, when you give using Dwolla, more of your money goes towards the causes you care about.

Goods for Good

Goods for Good works with local centers to educate, supply and clothe orphans and children of their own communities, readying them for school and life. In addition to supplying hard goods, such as pencils and uniforms, they are also going to supply goods that are themselves a self-sustaining business. With your help, they will start with a chicken farm. The entrepreneurial chicken farming program will empower communities in Malawi to support children in an all-new and long-lasting way. With the help of an “anonymous, totally amazing friend,” every dollar you give will be matched.

FCancer

FCancer’s goal is to spread the message of early detection and that 90% of cancer is curable in stage one. The founder, Yael Cohen, founded the charity by accident. She made a T-shirt for her mom to wear while she was recovering from her first surgery that said F*** Cancer. She didn’t know her mom would soon be wearing it out in public, and was astonished that strangers were moved enough to come up to her and give her support, or tell her their stories. Yael’s mother was a survivor. They had found the cancer early enough so that they were able to successfully treat it. Yael has now devoted her career to helping save other lives, all over the world, by educating people on early warning signs, knowing their risk levels and listening to what your body is telling you.

She’s The First

She’s the First is focused on sending girls in the developing world to school, helping them be the first in their families to graduate. By calling on their supporters to unlock their social networks and creatively funding for a girl’s sponsorship, her life can be changed forever. The countries in which She’s the First operates have about a 33% rate of girls being enrolled in secondary school. There is a positive correlation between educating girls and reducing the rates of maternal mortality, delaying childbirth and family size, and being less vulnerable to sexual abuse and coerced sex. Research also shows that educating girls and allowing them to participate in the workforce substantially increases a country’s economic output. Sponsor a girl, change her life and her community’s future.

Grist

Grist has been serious about providing environmental news and commentary since 1999 in their own unique style. They add a wry sense of humor to their reporting that makes you want to keep reading. In their words, they are, “making lemonade out of looming climate apocalypse.” Their mission is to bring forth the real meaning behind green stories, and to connect big issues like climate change to daily life. Currently, they are running a campaign to receive 2,500 donations by December 11. Help keep nonprofit, independent green journalism alive!
