On May 5, 2017 I will be turning 36 years old. I’m lucky to have made it this far and to be where I am thanks to a loving family, great friends, and the amazing network of people in my life. In the last year of my life I have completed my PhD and started a new fantastic job, life is good.

But it’s not all good.

We’re living through some undeniably scary times. The current administration seems hell-bent on making life harder for those who are already struggling. It’s reprehensible. It’s immoral. It’s wrong. I’ve tried to step up in response to the numerous calls for action, giving money and time where and when I can. I think now, on this day, there is a small opportunity to do it again.

I’m matching donations to the organizations mentioned below up to $360. Give $5, I’ll give $5. Give $50, I’ll give $50, you get the deal. Matching until my $360 is gone. Just send me proof of your donation via twitter.




Planned Parenthood



Y’all are excellent. All $360 has been spoken for, with each of the above organizations receiving donations.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!
