    A few things have begun to aggregate, so I figured I would start a new thread and post them here.

    First,

    #MEAction's general article on how to donate on #GivingTuesday:
    https://www.meaction.net/2018/11/16/givingtuesday/

    Right now, Facebook is matching donations, so consider clicking on the Facebook link in this article and donating there.

    Second,

    why should we donate to advocacy orgs? Because your advocacy dollars translate to 25x that funding in research. Read my article here:

    https://www.meaction.net/2018/11/27/research-supporting-advocacy-orgs-yields-huge-payoffs/

    Third,

    let's say you don't have the funding right now to donate. Please consider sharing the links above on Twitter and Facebook, but there's something you can do right now that will donate $10 to #MEAction just with a re-tweet.

    Steps:

    1) Go to the following tweet:

    2) Re-tweet their video with the following:
    @MEActnet
    #BeTheGood​

    And that's it! They'll donate $10. Pretty cool, huh?

    Quick, though -- they have a limit of 100K, and they're bound to reach it sooner rather than later.
