Today is also #GivingTuesday! I like that there's now a dedicated giving day built into the shopping push for the holidays. Here are some organizations that I give the Oblivious Nerd Girl cosign!
The Circle’s grantmaking goal is to invest in community-based organizations engaged in progressive change work that serve Asian and Pacific Islander communities, and to provide funding for organizations that may not have access to mainstream foundation funds due to their size or the nature of their programs.

The Greater Los Angeles Area chapter is one of the oldest and largest CAIR chapters across the country. Back in 1996, a group of dedicated volunteers in Southern California saw a need for a unique kind of Muslim organization – an organization that would work to uphold civil rights of American Muslims, foster a better understanding of the Islamic faith and its followers, and help find avenues for Muslims to integrate more fully into the broader society.
Years later, the chapter has grown tremendously, deepening its base in the Southern California Muslim community. CAIR-Los Angeles has, moreover, become a household name among Southland Muslims, and a reliable resource and partner for media, public officials and policymakers, advocacy groups, and the interfaith and progressive communities.
