i'm annoyed by people whose causes i agree with because they're attacking people with opposing viewpoints that, yes, are harmful, but attacking these people will just make them less likely to see your side. so instead of being genuinely reactionary, here's some foundations and charities and resources and shit that you can donate time and money to. also just fuckin donate blood if you can, bring some actual joy to peoples lives, for christs sake man
Cool things to do if you don't have cash to spare-
-Help with ESL classes
-Donate to Foodshare (Money is more helpful, but they always need fresh fruits and veggies and cooking supplies like flour)
-Give cold water to the homeless on hot days
-Check in with somebody you haven't for a bit
-Participate in studies for medical advancement (object ID apps for the blind, for example)
Stephen Hawking once said that if he had the option, he would have chosen an English voice over an American voice. However, even when the option became available later in his life, he kept his american voice because it was a part of him now.
If you have a good microphone, you can "donate your voice".
Not like little mermaid donating, more like Limewire donating =3
For people that rely on synthetic voices to communicate, a unique voice can become part of their personality. Vocal ID is a website where you say a bunch of words into a microphone, and they use that to create more voices.

Free Software Foundation and their founder, are actually the first group of people who define and fighting for software users' rights since the age when smallest computer was as large as your closet. They are also behind a software development effort called GNU Project which its mission being:
"Rewrite and replace every essential proprietary software packages, with ones that respect users' rights"
When you look at products from Disney, Warner Bros, Sony, Apple, Microsoft, Adobe and other companies along these lines...
These companies push against technology users' and netizens' rights; but they made some good movies, neat gadgets, or essential software that you would need when you work. Of course, as an individual/consumer, you can't keep avoiding buying (or renting) things from them.
But with every dollar/euro you spend with them, consider donating an equal amount to organizations who fight for your rights as well.
