To our community Black Lives Matter. This message is so obvious to us.
We want to contribute monetarily (as well as in every other way) to see real racial justice and equality that is massively overdue in the USA. We pledge to double your donations. If you don’t know where to donate, below is a short list of racial justice organizations. There are also some resource guides down below to discovering more organizations, books to read, movies to watch and so on. All in an effort to help us grow as a nation and as human beings. There are hundreds, if not thousands of incredible organizations like these ones fighting for racial justice.
If you do choose to get involved in our “Double Your Impact” campaign, please take a screenshot of your receipt and email it to: email@example.com or DM it to us @tomtommag on Instagram. We will block out your personal information (including your name — unless you want us to keep your name) and we will post and match your donation to either your organization or to one of the organizations listed below. No amount is too small to give. No amount is too large. Let’s lead by example.
