It’s Giving Tuesday, a day to think about worthy causes amid holiday excess.

There are many good candidates. My pet causes are Lucie’s Place, the ACLU, Planned Parenthood and The Rep.

I also like the Arkansas Nonprofit News Network. You can read about its work here. It’s about serious journalism — education, health care, child welfare and juvenile justice have been big picture projects supported by contributions to the nonprofit organization.

Newspapers and their staffs are dwindling here and everywhere. This is a good way to support an independent source of valuable reporting. Through news partners that publish the work,  it reaches a big Arkansas audience.
