GIVE TO A CHARITY
You can also make a difference by giving to a charity. Here is a list of verified charity links:

Another way to make a difference is by donating blood. You don’t have to live near the emergency to help. The blood you give locally may be used to support other states. Blood only has a shelf life of 42 days, so consider donating once a season.
