February 2018 Daily Donations

For my February monthly challenge, I decided to donate a small amount to something different every day.  It was a mix of organizations I already knew and cared about, and others that I discovered or were suggested to me.  I wrote a small bit (okay sometimes it was a large bit) about them on Facebook each day, and tried to donate on relevant days if there were any (for instance, the 28th was Rare Disease Day) to make it more interesting.  My goal was to not only expand my knowledge of organizations doing good stuff, but also spread knowledge and awareness of them.  It was interesting to look into the organizations and learn more about them – hopefully you also discover something new and interesting in this list!
