Founded in the year 2007 in the month of January, the activist group known as Avaaz has been making a powerful impact on this planet we call home.
Instead of allying themselves with one ideal that would limit them in the long run, they instead focused on several things that most ideologies would say are important to focus on. Avaaz is focused on solving the issues of global warming, also referred to as climate change, bringing equality to all in the form of human rights, protecting the critters of this earth by promoting the rights of animals, ending corruption in the government and on the streets, eradicating poverty, and ending conflict across the globe.
They fulfill their mission in a very unique way. They heavily focus their righteous efforts on building online petitions and encouraging various people to join their vast email campaigns. This is an extremely smart move for our society. Most organizations have a very hard time recruiting others to help them simply because other people do not always have the time to volunteer. Avaaz takes care of that problem by allowing you to share with them you opinion via the internet and they will make sure your voice is heard.
In order to keep their organizations pure from outside influences, Azaaz refuses to take donations from other foundations or corporations. They know such donations come with expectations. Rather than being enslaved to another’s viewpoint, they rely on the donations of individual members. They have proven this can be successful as they have now raised over $20m.
With that funding they have been able to create a team of campaigners that now span over 30 different countries. With this worldwide presence they will be able to focus on change throughout the globe and in the local town.
