How are your charitable donations changing this year?

Are you donating less? More? To any new organizations?

I'm adding the Women's Refugee Commission to my list this year, for their work on behalf of migrant families at the U.S. border.

With the higher standard deduction in place for 2018 Federal Income Taxes, I may not end up itemizing deductions, but I still want to make a difference with my dollars, so I'm donating about as much as I have in previous years. Scrambling to get a few more contributions in by Monday.

Beautiful documentary about New York's last great chess shop


Open Culture is an excellent source for information about many wondrous creative people and projects. This piece is especially nice.
