    How to care about money when nothing is okay

    How to care about money when nothing is okay

    How the heck do you pick financial goals when 1 in 4 people are unemployed, there are murder hornets, police are battering people in the streets for having the audacity to say that black men shouldn't die at the hands of cops, and everything feels a little...well, stressful? When the world is on fire, how can you care about your 401K? AND HOW CAN YOU HELP!?
    All ad revenue and this week's patreon revenue will be donated to the TGI Justice Project, a black-led group of transgender, gender variant and intersex people—inside and outside of prisons, jails and detention centers—creating a united family in the struggle for survival and freedom.
    And remember: black lives matter.

Over on the Oh My Dollar! forums, we're doing a fun time tracking challenge, March of Time this month. We brought on the expert of experts on Time Tracking, Laura Vanderkam, to talk about tracking your time.  The ⏰⏳ March of Time Tracking Challenge started already, but it isn't too late to join and get stickers and reap the benefits of time tracking.
