A thoughtful reader suggested I create a single post listing all the “Today’s Worthy Cause” suggestions I’ve been featuring in my Lockdown Journal posts. This is a great idea and I’m disappointed I didn’t think of it myself.

Spaza Shop Challenge
Beneficiaries of the African Accents #SpazaShopChallenge in Katlehong.

Below is the list of organizations/causes, with a link to either a donation page or the blog post in which I discussed the cause. Scroll to the bottom of the blog post to read about the cause.
