We can’t all participate in protests but there is something we can do. One of those is to sign petitions and the other is to donate. I have listed two categories below: donate by shopping and donate to organizations.
Donate by Shopping
There are some amazing companies out there who are busily creating to sell and donating the proceeds of sales to #BLM or related foundations.

Donate to Organizations
The COVID-19 pandemic has left many of us with financial stability, myself included (I was laid off in March.). But I donate when I can and I encourage you to do so if you are able. The #BlackLivesMatter Movement needs this more then ever right now. So I am sharing some organizations you can donate to, even if it is just $5.
Please reach out if you would like to be included on this list. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
