Hi: All I want for Christmas is paid family leave so please give anything at all to help me reach my goal. THANK YOU SO MUCH.
THE CAUSE - PAID FAMILY LEAVE: John Oliver did the BEST piece on paid family leave in the United States, so I leave it to him. Please watch the video.
WHO ARE YOU GIVING TO?: A Better Balance
An organization of kick-ass lawyers fighting for paid family leave on a local and national level. They also have pro bono legal services and a hotline to call for info on your rights.
If you get fired because you're pregnant (yes this happens), they will help you get your job back. I've seen the great work they do first hand as I work with them. This is why I'm fundraising for them on Giving Tuesday and the rest of the month.
SO WHAT NOW?: Give a little ($10!) give a lot (love ya!) it all makes a difference.
