People who want to learn about and take action on the world’s biggest challenges—and use their power to get other people involved too. “We bring you stories and actions that make a difference. That help fight extreme poverty and inequality around the world, and support approaches that will make life more sustainable for people and the planet.” According to the website, bystanders can help raise money and awareness for a number of social issues affecting individuals here in the U.S. and abroad, including “Girls & Women,” “Women,” “Education,” “Finance & Innovation,” and many more.
