It took our nation’s founders a lot of devotion and perseverance to guarantee us our freedoms. However, modern society has encouraged some elements to thrive, characters that want to take us back to the dark ages. There has come up a category of individuals who want to profit at the expense of our environment, bio-diversity, as well as our resources. Without a means to put the above to an end, minority groups and animals have ended up being recipients to a lot of misery and oppression. However, Avaaz, a group created in 2007 has come up to actively fight matters regarding corruption, poverty, climate change, animal and human rights, as well as conflict.
Unlike other civic organizations, Avaaz petitions and supports causes that fall under its mandate across the divide. To date, the organization is under the leadership of Mr. Ricken Patel, a manager that is one of a kind. Other individuals directly linked to the group include Jeremy Heimans, Andrea Woodhouse, Tom Pravda, Eli Pariser, Ben Brandzel, David Madden, and Tom Perriello. Currently, Avaaz does not accept any monetary support from foundations and corporations. Instead, the group receives contributions from its members but can only take $5,000 per individual. Avaaz has been formed based on the ideology of bringing together practical idealists that happen to be in any part of the world. As an organization, Avaaz has been aiming to see to it that they create the type of world that each person can appreciate.
With Avaaz, the choice for change starts with you. Through the Avaaz platform, you can start a petition, something that many individuals across the globe have done and won. So far, Avaaz has 44 million members all of whom are present in 194 countries in the world. Thus, Avaaz is a society that keeps systems in check no matter their geographical location.
