It's the annual start of the War On Christmas season. You've all made the leftover turkey into the excellent strata and eaten that, too, and you've very thoughtfully bought NOTHING on Commerce Friday and Teen Wage-Slave Saturday, and you refrained from celebrating Gassing Mothers and Children Sunday, because you are not a monster like Timi Lathrop. And now it is the HashtagGivingTuesday, when you leverage your extra cash into helping other people, only without being all sanctimonious about it because you're better than that (and immune to flattery, too, even though you're much more generous, smarter, and better-looking than others. Have we mentioned you really smell good, too?).

So here, let Yr Wonkette tell you where you should send your generosity, and in the comments you can suggest other worthy causes also too! Many but not all of these are legit tax-deductible charities what you can deduct on your taxes, but you'll want to check the fine print and shit because that's how you should do.


  • Support the migrant parents and kids Trump has declared war on by helping out RAICES, the San Antonio-based nonprofit that has been working to keep immigrant kids and families together. Send money to help pay for lawyers here -- having legal representation is often the biggest factor in preventing deportation. RAICES also provides representation and case management through their "Families Together Fund," and if you want to just make a general contribution, here's the link for that, too!
  • To help kids who are already in immigration detention, there's Kids in Need of Defense, which provides children with representation in immigration court and also lobbies for children's legal interests. Donate here.
  • MOAR LOCAL MOTION: Wonkette Five Dollar Feminist recommends Civic Works, a Baltimore education, job-training and service group. Wonkette Social Media maven Bianca calls your attention to Bean's Cafe, which feeds the homeless and also fixes lunches for kids in Anchorage without preaching at 'em. Wonkette Stephen urges you to donate to the Seattle Public Theater, which aims to build a better world through the arts. Yr Editrix would post a link for her local food bank, where Yr Shypixel volunteers, but they do not even have a webpage, so go find your local food pantry and help/volunteer!
  • Finally, that Trump guy is also at war with journamalism and journamalists, so please help keep the truth coming by throwing your extra gold and silver at Mother Jones, ProPublica, and the Texas Tribune, and give/subscribe to any other publications/websites you know to do hard-hitting, good, investigative journalism. Support press freedom internationally at Reporters Without Borders, too!

OH AND WONKETTE, YOU NEED DICK JOKES AND GOOD WRITING AND JOURNALISM TOO, GIVE WONKETTE THE MONEYS. Heck, you don't even need those links sending you elsewhere; you can just send us money ON THIS VERY PAGE

Doktor Zoom

Doktor Zoom's real name is Marty Kelley, and he lives in the wilds of Boise, Idaho. He is not a medical doctor, but does have a real PhD in Rhetoric. You should definitely donate some money to this little mommyblog where he has finally found acceptance and cat pictures. He is on maternity leave until 2033. Here is his Twitter, also. His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.

Y'all saw that crazy shit that happened at the White House today when Chuck 'n' Nancy went to visit Trump to talk about averting a government shutdown, and Chuck 'n' Nancy ended up playing foosball with Trump's face while he screamed "WALL!" over and over again? It was so great.

During the meeting, Trump interrupted Pelosi a whole lot, and she responded by not giving a fuck and making fun of him to his face about how all she does is win, while Trump was left to whine about how nobody ever talks about how "he" won the Senate for the GOP. (The Senate election schedule, which heavily favored Republicans in the 2018 midterms, won the Senate for the GOP.)

When Pelosi walked out of the White House, she looked like some kinda badass spy walking away at the perfect moment, right before the building explodes. (We are not saying Nancy Pelosi blowed up the White House! OK fine, she did it WITH VOTES.)

But Pelosi's day of dick-punching Trump right in his orange face was not over!

James Alex Fields mugshot

This morning, after spending Monday hearing victim impact statements, the jury in James Alex Fields's trial -- which on Friday found him guilty on all 10 counts he was charged with -- delivered their sentencing recommendations.

For the murder of Heather Heyer, the Charlottesville jury gave Fields a life sentence and a fine of $100,000. For each of the three charges of aggravated malicious wounding, they sentenced him to 70 years and fines of $70,000. For each of the five charges of malicious wounding, 20 years in prison and fines of $10,000, and nine years for the hit and run. All in all, this comes out to a life sentence plus 419 years and $480,000. Judge Richard Moore accepted the jury's verdicts, but will hold off on officially sentencing Fields until March 19.
