The power of unity is immeasurable. By working together, we can accomplish more than we could ever imagine. This is especially true when it comes to issues that affect us. Global activism has long served as the platform for individuals to fight for what they believe in. With the advancements in technology, we now have the chance to connect with people from all over and come together to make the world a better place for everyone.
Launched in January 2007, Avaaz is a U.S. based civic organization that uses petitions, emails, organized protest, and a number of other strategies, to raise awareness on current issues and promote chance within communities around the world. Relying solely on the generosity and financial support of its members, Avaaz has raised more than $20 million in funding to help manage and support campaigns. The organization host global campaigns in over 30 countries and 15 different languages. Their online community allows them to raise awareness about issues around the world, helping earn more supporters for each campaign.
In honor of true democracy, Avaaz includes roughly 10,000 members in the new campaign selection process. Random members are invited to share their opinions on new campaigns ideas each week, and if a campaign receives enough member support, the organization acts. There are no rules and no restrictions. Avaaz is on a mission to connect like-minded people in honor of a better future. No matter what country, and no matter how big or small the issue may seem, if it will help create a better world, Avaaz believes its worth the fight.
It is up to us to make the world a better, safer place. By coming together, and using our voices, there is hope that we can one day, achieve the world we all truly want. A world rid of corruption, hunger, and poverty.
