This post is sponsored by Fundrage but all opinions are my own.

I have learned a lot about myself over the past few years; I am very empathetic, sensitive, and truthfully, a bit angry. There's been a lot of things that have made me feel angry over the past two years and in the same breath, those events have made me incredibly sad. 

From the pandemic to George Floyd, the election, mass shootings, and all the humanitarian issues happening around the globe at any given moment, there has not been a shortage of things to be concerned about, to want to fix. 

Those emotions that I feel whenever something major is happening in the world is frustrating because it makes me feel helpless. The only way to get over that feeling is to try to turn that anger and sadness into something, even if it's as easy as donating a few dollars to an organization that is helping whatever problem is lighting a fire inside you. 

Enter Fundrage.

When I heard about this fabulous, innovative, interesting woman-owned business I knew that it was what I was looking for. It takes all the guessing games out of what organizations are legit, nonpartisan, and are best for what cause you are looking to donate to. 

Fundrage is exactly what it sounds like: you turn your rage into dollars and donate to nonprofit organizations. All you do is install the Google Chrome extension to your browser and when you stumble onto an article that sparks your rage, you can click on the extension and it'll let you know which organizations are good to donate to, in order to support the cause.

They have also taken all things into consideration, like nonpartisanship and misinformation so Fundrage will only appear on particular websites that fall into those categories. More information can be found on the FAQ page. 

I think this is probably one of the most needed innovations for the internet in a while; it takes the guessing game out of donating money and also fuels your anger and sadness into something really positive. 

For example, when I'm reading about the Russian invasion in The New York Times, Fundrage pops up in the corner and when I click on the button, a table pops up with a few different nonprofits to donate to. When I click on one, I can donate right then and there without even leaving the site I'm on.

I'm just so thankful that something like this is going to exist in the world; it's in beta testing right now but you can download the extension and get started. I think that this is something that everyone can use, no matter which party you belong to, what causes are important to you, or how you get your news. Everyone benefits and it takes a lot of heat off you for vetting and examining organizations to donate to... someone else has already done that for you.

It's nice to channel your anger and frustration into something tangible and I'm just so excited for Fundrage and to see what happens with it next!
