Helping Out

There’s a lot that’s horribly wrong in the world right now. A global pandemic, racial injustice and police brutality in America, climate change, and wildly corrupt politicians fueling a growing wealth gap while stripping people of rights and access to services and resources they desperately need. It’s scary enough, but for people without the security of regular employment, a salary, health insurance, a home, food, and other essential supplies, it’s even scarier.

I’m extraordinarily grateful that I have access to all of the above.

It’s hard to think of ways to help others, especially when most of us are confined to our homes. But one way I can help is by donating to organizations that are helping people that need all of that stuff above.

So, for the time being, I’ll be donating 50% of all The Better Email sales to organizations helping those more impacted by these massive problems in society. All you have to do is buy The Better Email on Design to help out. Then I’ll take care of the rest.

Every week on Friday, I get payouts for The Better Email sales (assuming I sold anything the week before). I’ll take half of whatever gets deposited and donate it to an organization on Monday.

Which organizations? It’ll likely change from week-to-week. I’m going to start with ones focused on feeding those without access to (or money for) meals, especially kids that rely on school-provided lunches. As situations arise and needs change, I’ll find new organizations to help out. If you have an organization in mind, please send me their details.

How am I tracking all this? I’m not big on social media outside of Twitter, so I’ll post about that week’s donation there (a screenshot or something) to stay accountable. I’ll also be tracking each week’s donations right here using the table above. I’m curious to see how much can be raised with your help.

Have any questions? Just email me.
