We live at a time of unprecedented economic prosperity, yet the world’s problems seem too big for each of us to solve.
We live in a moment when we are more connected than ever, yet it can be so hard to find those people who care about the causes we do.
We live in an age where we can get what we want at the click of a button, while it can be so difficult to discover how we can help to make the change we want to see.
It is by recognising the urgency of these challenges, while harnessing the power of the technology we have available, that we can truly address the problems the world faces today.
For it is only now that anyone, anywhere can use their skills to make the change they want to see.
It is only now that we can connect with people and NGOs from around the world who care about our causes.
It is only now that we can collaborate online to make change happen.
Because today is Day 1 — the launch of We Make Change — and the day that we begin to come together to address the problems the world faces.
Whether you can spare just a few hours a month or a few days a week; whether you’re a researcher, writer or graphic designer; whether you want to support refugees, address climate change or help your local community; become a Changemaker and use your skills to make the change you want to see.
To paraphrase Robert Kennedy:
Each time a person acts to improve the lot of others, they send forth a tiny ripple of hope, and together those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of injustice.
We all have the power to change the world, and now we can make it happen.
Because together, We Make Change.
