HELP OUT THE WORLD
Hi, I’m Alex. I’m always afraid that I’m not doing enough and I think a lot of people feel the same. This carrd is meant to give ways to help out the world however possible. It includes tiny, five-minute actions and bigger, more time consuming actions. I’m going to add EVERYTHING I can find. Everyone can participate. Check back regularly!!! If a link is broken, a petition ends, etc, let me know!

SO YOU WANT TO BE AN ACTIVIST
That’s great! Any small action helps. Do what you can! Sometimes it can feel like nothing you do will make a difference, or you don’t know how to start. This is a list of general ways to help. Most of them are elaborated on in other sections:
Donate! You can do this with or without money. Make sure wherever you’re donating is reliable. If you want to donate without money, try “watch to donate” videos or “click to donate” websites. Alternatively, donate goods like food and clothes.
Email people in power about issues that concern you.
Alternatively, send handwritten letters, make phone calls, or even send a tweet.
Educate yourself. Read up on current issues.
Do your part. Vote, and if possible, attend meetings in your city.
Go to events. These can be online or in person. In addition to protests, seminars are a great way to get informed.
Share resources. Educate your friends. Send resources to those in need.
Fight injustice when you see it in your daily life. If your coworker makes a racist joke, don’t let it slide.
Be environmentally friendly. This isn’t possible for everyone, and big corporations are the real issue, but if you want to, go for it!
Also, if you can, boycott businesses who do awful things and, instead, shop local!
Volunteer for an organization that you support. There are so many different opportunities from phone banking to spreading the word.
Again, just do what you can! Anything helps!
