A Few Hours before Twenty Five

Probably my first birthday-related post ever?

So in a few hours, I’ll be about twenty-fine, er, -five years old. I also wondered; how come we count birthdays from the time one’s crown touches outside air? Why not when we get our first heartbeat? I don’t know. I’m truthfully writing this to say that if you’re cool with me and wanted to do something nice in honor of my birthday1, I want you to do one of the following things:

Donate / Divest

I’d rather you sent money to organizations that do incredibly work versus sending me something that may or may not contribute to the crappy world we live in2. If you want to align a bit with ones I personally align with and/or donate to, check the list below!


Shout-out to Patreon to making the act of funding your interests a lot easier! If you end up supporting anyone below, let me know by responding to the tweet associated with this post or by just entering some information below in the comment. At the end of the month, I’d like to shout y’all out in my newsletter.

Thank you.

  1. It’s really sweet if you even have the thought of doing something

  2. I don’t say this to say that I won’t appreciate it.
