Give Money to a Mutual Aid Fund Instead of Giving Gifts This Holigay Season

Team Autostraddle got together to let you know about some of our personal favorite mutual aid funds if you need inspiration about who to give your money to this holigay season (whether it’s for a gift or simply because you have a large disposable income and want to share your resources!).

I’d love to hear in the comments about the local organizations in your area that you like to support.
