Give Back in 2017: November

In 2017, one of my goals is to donate $20.17 each month to a different charity or cause that I’m passionate about. I’ll still feature other nonprofits and social enterprises in the Give Back section, but I wanted to share this challenge with you, as well. I hope I can introduce you to some great organizations and maybe even inspire you to join me in this monthly challenge!

NPR

As an avid podcast listener and news junky, I love NPR. National Public Radio is a nonprofit media organization that produces high quality journalism that’s *mostly* nonpartisan (because is anything ever 100% nonpartisan?).

In today’s world of fake news, biased reporting and frankly, the internet the way it is, it’s often difficult to find news you can trust. Now don’t get me wrong, I love Buzzfeed and Twitter, but those aren’t reliable sources of news.

NPR has affiliates all over the country that are independently owned and locally operated, not run by a central conglomerate. I’m proud to support an organization like NPR that holds themselves to high standards of reporting while producing quality content.

Outside of news, I’m a huge fan of NPR affiliates’ podcasts! Some of my favorites are Radiolab and Radiolab Presents More Perfect from WNYC and This American Life and Serial from WBEZ. And since I consume this free media, I think it’s only right to give back and support them financially.

If you’d like to donate, you can do so here! Be sure to also check out their website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Just another 20-something trying to figure out this whole adulting thing.
