If you've been reading the posts on this blog from CREDO Action, MoveOn.org, Democracy for America, People for the American Way, The Feminist Majority, Media Matters for America, and others, you know that there are many progressive groups out there trying to counteract right-wing extremism in American politics.
These organizations need your help to keep on fighting in 2012. They rely on grassroots support, not sponsorship from huge corporations. That means money from you and me. Small donations from a whole bunch of us "regular people" really can mount up, surprisingly fast.
How about this? This week, instead of buying that one extra stocking stuffer or that bottle of holiday booze or instead of going out to dinner just one time, send an equivalent amount to the activist organization of your choice.
Most of the posts on this blog include quick links that make it easy to donate. Come on, pick one, and send them a little money. You'll be glad you did.
