You believe in helping those experiencing a need for food and shelter. You want to ensure people’s basic necessities are covered. In the United States, 43.1 million are living in poverty. Another 60 million are just one crisis away from it. You’re fighting to end homelessness, and looking to get to the root cause of the issue. You’re fighting for good.
You believe in making a difference by fighting for human rights, and one way to do that is through focusing on human trafficking. Between 14,500 and 17,500 people are trafficked in the United States each year. This form of modern-day enslavement exists all over the U.S. You’re fighting to make sure no person is treated like property. You’re fighting for good.
Your mission to advocate for better mental health. Maybe it’s by helping a veteran suffering with PTSD with a job search, or assisting someone with a mental illness pursue the treatment they need to function as healthily as possible. You’re fighting to help others understand and empathize an often stigmatized subject. You’re fighting for good.
Your mission is to help survivors of natural disasters. Drought, wildfires, flash-flooding, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes and blizzards are some of the greatest threats to life as we know it—and they can happen to anyone, with little warning. You’re fighting to make sure everyone is ready to respond and help is available when disaster strikes. You’re fighting for good.
You believe addiction is a disease that needs treatment. More than 300 people die every day in the United States as a result of drug or alcohol overuse, and while that seems overwhelming, you know something must be done. You’re fighting to combat addiction. You’re fighting for good.
You are on a mission to empower young people in your community. By the end of the 4th grade, low-income students are already two years behind grade level, and that bothers you. You’re fighting to see every child have the opportunity to succeed. You’re fighting for good.
