Fear giving in action

Yesterday I mentioned the power of fear, and the same day, The Atlantic posted the article The Post-Election Surge in Donations illustrating the very point I was trying to make.  They report that the ACLU received $7 million in donations in just five days.  The Sierra Club quadrupled its monthly donation record, and Planned Parenthood got 80,000 donations.  People fear what president-elect Trump is going to do, and rioting is not the only way they respond.

I'm not sure what to say.  I wish people were this generous out of courage rather than fear.
