"Aligning my donations with my values": Tar Sands Reporting Project
Harper has tethered our charities ... but I can still donate to progressive non-charities that honour my values ...
... I just have to give up the tax breaks (not very important to me anyway - I'm just not rich enough). In 2013 I became a proud "progressive activist". Turns out almost all of my financial donations in 2013 went to non-charities and Canada's three progressive political parties!
Please allow me to introduce you to my latest amazing (crowd-funded) progressive non-charity - The Vancouver Observer and ...
THE TAR SANDS REPORTING PROJECT
This project promises one year of deep, thoughtful journalism about Canada's tar sands - from our own Vancouver on-line newspaper The Vancouver Observer (VO).
I am so impressed ... I gave a whopping $100 and I was thrilled to have the opportunity to do so ... check it out and donate your own whopping $5, $60 $100 or more.
They have reached their goal of $32,000 to do the reporting, but now they are working on a "stretch" goal - another $20,000 to make a film about it ...
