This is a list of organizations that [[User:Mika Matsuzaki|Mika]] and [[User:Benjamin Mako Hill|Mako]] like the work of. Rather than giving us gifts, we would appreciate if people donated to any of these organizations so they can continue to make the world the kind of place that we want to live in!

All of these groups are 501(c)(3) organizations in the United States so all donations should be tax deductable.
