Domestic and International Donations: ACLU and Charity:Water
Whenever someone buys one of our sweatshop-free shirts at Skreened, we set aside a dollar to donate to a domestic political cause and another dollar to donate to charity for overseas assistance.
This time, we’ve sent a donation to Charity:Water to help build sanitary water systems in impoverished communities, because despite what some people insist, it’s pretty hard to lift yourself up by your bootstraps if you’re suffering from cholera or amoebic dysentery. Our domestic political donation goes to the American Civil Liberties Union, which continues in its work to protect the free speech and privacy rights of all Americans, even the ones who love to grumble about the ACLU.
We urge you to follow suit if you have the spare change, but if you don’t have a dime to spare, don’t fret; we’ll keep right on making donations in the new year.
