How do we do that?
By connecting with these organizations and finding out what they are all about, we’re hoping to convey that information to you through our site.
How can you help?
These causes & initiatives accomplish goals through your help. Here are several ways you too can make a positive impact.
1. By reading about them, you have already helped! Understanding what these organizations do will make you more conscious of what they are all about and give you a deeper context of the kind of impact that they’re making. Only once you’re aware, can you truly begin to contribute.
2. When you discover a cause that you connect with, start sharing it with everyone. Click the ‘Like’ button, re-tweet it, tell your friends about it – pass on the information any way you can. In turn, you’re making others more socially conscious.
3. If you realize that you’re really passionate about this initiative, figure out a way to contribute to them directly. Usually at the end of each article or interview, we’ll give you a few ways of getting involved.
By turning your inspiration into action, we can collectively contribute to the greater cause.
