Avaaz: UNITED BUT DIFFERENT

Life, it is lived in many ways. Different cultures, different religions, different people; they all believe they know the answer to the ageless question. Why are we here? So, who is right, one may ask? The answer; everyone. There is no one right way to live life. Life its self is ever-changing, and evolving. The differences between every human being on this Earth is what makes civilization beautiful. We should strive to understand that just because we are different does not mean we cannot live united.
This is what Avaaz is aiming to teach the world. Avaaz is a large online activist network, launched in 2007. Avaaz believes in helping those in need; and, pushing back against the tyranny of injustice. They have been involved in numerous campaigns that help right many of the wrongs in this world. Avaaz sent $ 1.5 million to protesters, and activists during the civil uprising following the Syrian Civil War. They also sent over $2 million of medical equipment into rebel areas of Syria. In 2009 Avaaz help organize one of the biggest protest campaigns ever seen in human history called “The Global Climate Wake-up Call.” The main goal of this event was to alert and demand that our world leaders take action against climate change. During this campaign 2,682 events took place, in 135 countries, on 5 continents.
But the might and influence of Avaaz does not stop there. Ever since 2009 Avaaz has only relied on member donations amassing to over $20 million. But despite all the different campaigns that Avaaz has organized, and sponsored they remain true to their one and only mission; “Organize citizens of all nations to close the gap between the world we have and the world most people everywhere want.”
