A Relief Valve for Conscientious Objectors

With Planned Parenthood and now NARAL Pro-Choice America both winning over the past year, there's something I should probably mention. Or at least remind you about since I bet I haven't mentioned it in years. It's a mechanism I built into Charitocracy dating back to the beta-test stage in summer of 2016.

It has not been used often, and I hope it continues not to be needed often. But if you have a dilemma whereby you can't in good conscience, for example due to religious beliefs, support the winning cause, you just need to get in touch and we'll direct your monthly contribution that month toward Charitocracy's general expenses instead of the monthly grant check.

Here's where you can find it described in the FAQ if you're curious!

So just be sure to let me know during the 1st week of the month before I write out the check, and I'm happy to keep you happy. While I always want democracy to prevail, I also want you all to sleep well at night. 😘

May 2022 winner NARAL Pro-Choice America

At midnight on May 31 we named Charitocracy's 69th monthly winner. Congratulations to NARAL Pro-Choice America Foundation, nominated by donor Stephanie. They shift the culture of shame around abortion to help guarantee every woman the right to informed and empowered choices. You can find their website here.

Now you have a week to further sweeten the pot with a special one-time donation of any amount, which we'll add straight to the check we write to NARAL next week.

So finally check out this short video, “The Future Is Forward,” which takes viewers on a journey through time, to see and feel how far we’ve come in the fight for reproductive freedom in the United States. Then feel good about your part in our collective $1040+ grant to support NARAL's ongoing work.

Have a great June and be sure to log into Charitocracy to update your votes or nominate a new cause!

Keep being awesome.

You all make me so proud when it comes time to write our monthly grant checks. This money comes from you, and is pointed in the right direction by you. Jessica and I have the simple yet super satisfying job of signing the checks and putting them in the mail. But the rest is all you. Thanks for everything, and keep up the good work. Literally, good work. It doesn't get much better than this.

April 2022 winner World Central Kitchen

At midnight on April 30 we named Charitocracy's 68th monthly winner. Congratulations to World Central Kitchen, nominated by donor Stephanie. They provide meals in response to humanitarian, climate, and community crises. You can find their website here.

So finally check out this moving video about a shelter in Lviv, Ukraine where winner World Central Kitchen delivers two meals each day. Then feel good about your part in our collective $1150+ grant to support WCK's ongoing work.

Our first public event ever!

League of Women Voters of Dare County invited me and Jessica to speak at their monthly luncheon last month at 3 Tequilas in Kill Devil Hills on St. Patrick's Day. What a total blast! We had a lot of laughs telling them how Charitocracy works and about the origins of Charitocracy OBX. Donor (and prolific OBX nominator) John Towler wrote about it for their monthly newsletter. Thanks for the opportunity!

March 2022 winner International Rescue Committee

Last night we named Charitocracy's 67th monthly winner. Congratulations to International Rescue Committee, nominated by donor TdotWING. They help people affected by humanitarian crises to survive, recover and rebuild their lives. You can find their website here.
