As we ring in 2020 and the new decade, I have been searching for sources of inspiration to guide me toward the purpose I hope to achieve in the coming years. My inspiration was found when I dug deeper into a Global Impact charity partner that underwent a recent name change in 2019, Alight, formerly known as American Refugee Committee.

The world’s tough problems can seem insurmountable. So at Alight, while we tackle those big problems we also do the doable. Right then. And that’s what Changemakers 365 is all about. It’s about doing the doable, effecting real change for $500 or less each and every day.
We launched Changemakers 365 in January 2017. And have completed 800+ days of change around the world – from Bangladesh to Somalia, Uganda to Pakistan.

Changemakers 365 gives our worldwide teams a tool to see the bright spots and hope in a community and provide the little bit of support needed to make it grow. We know that when we get behind a changemaker’s existing efforts, they’ll make that $500 go further than we ever could.
