I realized today that I was seeing a bunch of helpful links, and I have not been tracking them. I’m going to put them here for my use, but if you know of good ones, let me know and I’ll share them.
It’s probably obvious, but inclusion here in no way implies that I’ve vetted the groups, nor am I recommending them. If I find out that a given link is dubious, I’ll drop it. Also, I’m not even going to pretend that this is in any way an all-inclusive list.
I’m intending this list as a resource for people who are wondering what they can do to help, but I’m pretty sure that if you wanted to throw some cash their way, these organizations would be happy for that sort of help in return)
