The partial government shutdown is squeezing a number of programs that help people in need.

So, across the country, donors big and small are opening their wallets to help keep some of those programs afloat.

A pair of Texas philanthropists pledged up to $10 million to help Head Start programs affected by the shutdown. A university in New Hampshire decided to offer scholarships to active-duty military personnel whose tuition assistance has been switched off by the shutdown. And in Arkansas, people have been donating to a nonprofit organization since the shutdown froze a stipend some of its workers receive.

The shutdown began Oct. 1, and it’s not clear when it will end.

The best thing people can do is unite and clean house in Washington from the very top to the bottom. Send these politicians packing and get people in office that care about the good old USA.
