There are many activist groups and organizations that focus specifically on one issue. There is nothing wrong with that because 100% concentration on a certain issue can get the job done in a fraction of the time – as opposed to spreading one’s concentration in many areas.
However, Avaaz has been doing a stellar job in being able to help as many people who are suffering or are in need. And this speaks volumes about the leader and the organization. So if you are unaware of what Avaaz is, let us inform you a bit about what the organization is all about.
Avaaz was first founded by a man named Ricken Patel, who is a Canadian/ British man. As a young child he was always picked on and mistreated and as a result of this, from his own words, “he always understood the people who suffer.”
This truly speaks volume about the man and his character because it takes great strength to turn a negative situation and turn it into a force of positivity. Thanks to his bold actions on helping as many people as he can and really trying to change the world for the better he has been ranked as one of “the global leader of the online protest.”
The organization tackles many issues which include human trafficking, animal rights, poverty, governmental corruption, human rights, climate changes, and ongoing conflicts. The organization is truly a superpower in the realm of activism and is really making a difference for many people around the world.
Changing the world for the better because of negative events happening to you in the past is truly a power and a virtue that we must all cultivate.
