NaNaWriMo Dough

Posted on: November 21st, 2013 by Shannon Fay No Comments

I’ve got a ton of little tricks to keep me motivated throughout NaNoWriMo, and one of them is that for every 5k I write I donate 5 bucks to charity. The causes vacillate between websites I make use of and IRL meat space humanitarian efforts. So far I have given money to NaNoWriMo, the David Suzuki Foundation, Wikipedia, and Oxfam. The only reason I’m sharing this is to urge other Canadians to give to charities involved with the disaster response in the Philippines. Right now until December 9th the Canadian government will match your donation to NGOs such as the Red Cross, MSF, and Oxfam. I know I’d personally prefer that my tax dollars go towards the relief efforts rather than pay for some senator’s PEI summer home.

Whoosh! The Canadian current affairs references are flying like hockey pucks! Rob Ford!

Though if you’d rather donate to a local Filipino charity, that’s cool too. Next on my donation list is NAFCON, the National Alliance for Filipino Concerns.
