Consider donating to this campaign giving no-strings-attached money to black women in Georgia:

Cool things about it:

- Comes from recommendations of a local community task force meant to address economic disparity

I feel al little conflicted about this honestly. I love RSS deeply. However, I don't like the dominance and control that many of these big platforms have and I feel like subscribing to their content, even via RSS, fuels these platforms.

At least you're not giving them tons of your personal data while you enjoy the content though ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Do you prefer to buy DRM-free ebooks?
