Everyone is taking a hit in some way this year. Every year on Giving Tuesday, non-profits ask their supporters to donate to help their worthy causes. This year may be tricky. The non-profits, most likely, have much more work to do with more people needing assistance, but less people have money to donate. It's the state of the world right now. Not trying to be a Debbie Downer. If you do have something left to give, support one of the many causes here in Des Moines. There is a list of non-profits that could use your assistance at givedsm.org.
