I wish everyone every success for 2016 and ask y'all to throw a few dollars to a not-for-profit organization that supports solutions to education, environment, poverty, etc.
In no particular order, here are some of the organizations I contribute to. And yep I know nothing's perfect, non-profits have their issues, eventually all species go extinct (as will Mankind) blah...blah...blah, but I still consider that taking some action is better than indifference and defeatism.
