15 amazing organizations that help women that you can donate to right now
Yesterday, we all had a free pass to sit catatonic in our sweatpants, crying and hugging ourselves and our loved ones. With a presidential election that went a direction few people expected, and win that could be devastating for millions of women, immigrants, people of color, and LGBTQ-identifying citizens, we needed a day to let the results sink in. But today, we must pick ourselves and act. What does that mean? The answers are vast. It could mean rediscovering a dedication to your education, craft, career, or business. It could mean volunteering to help those in need. Or, it could mean donating funds to organizations that help women.
In the spirit of Hillary Clinton, who dedicated her life to helping women and children, we’ve compiled a list of organizations that provide assistance and opportunities to women across the world. As always, do your research. Check if the charity is trustworthy by contacting the Better Business Bureau’s (BBB) Wise Giving Alliance, Charity Navigator, Charity Watch, or GuideStar.
