The +SocialGood global community of innovators pledged to volunteer 1400 hours throughout #GivingTuesday! We received commitments from 10 different countries. This almost tripled the goal we set this year!
The causes that the +SocialGood community will be supporting are: Refugees, disabilities, education, freedom of expression, data for good, food security, environment and clean energy. It was inspiring to see the enthusiasm of the community and the diversity of the causes they volunteered for. This truly reflects the power of our community around the Sustainable Development Goals worldwide. Also, leading up to COP21, it is exciting to see people move from words to action and create local impact.
We are looking forward to seeing the outcomes of these pledges. We will continue with an open invitation to #GivingHours in order to share with the world how the power of people united through of social media and new technologies can make the world a better place.
