Subject: It's my birthday!

I don't always post about it, but this year I'm turning 35, which feels like a significant number. It's also happening at a time when the world is going through massive upheaval, between the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and widespread protests in support of Black lives, both of which bear remembering.

For that reason, I'm using my platform here to ask you to consider marking this occasion by making a donation to a worthy cause. I would suggest the Southern Poverty Law Center, Black Lives Matter, or the Poor People's Campaign.

Don't feel bad if you are a student or otherwise have no disposable income. There are other ways to support justice and equal rights. It starts by simply being aware of systemic racism and of your own privilege, if you're white, to live your life not having to worry about it unless you choose to. Please fight systemic injustice by choosing to hear the voices around you crying for equal treatment. Please choose to care.

Thank you all for being part of my PPC family. <3
