Welcome to Hearts and Minds SM
What if you could change the world?
The answer is:
Help create a sustainable, just, peaceful and beautiful world!
Why you are important:
Every 4 seconds,
a child dies from poverty-related causes
That’s 22,000 children a day,
8,000,000 every year 1
Now, some very good news:
All the food, resources and methods to end this crisis already exist!
policies that subsidize
the wealthy and hurt the poor
cost effective programs that
already help millions of people
What makes Hearts and Minds unique?
Thousands of nonprofits work on poverty. Many do very good work. Still, 815,000,000 2 people go hungry…
Here’s what’s missing:
help a limited number of people
in limited ways…
– or –
Urge wealthy nations to
help millions more people.
But these groups support
giving billions of dollars directly to
poorly managed governments
and often limited nonprofits…
There is a better way:
Hearts and Minds
Our public education and advocacy program works to help end
extreme poverty quicker and cost effectively:
We address root causes of extreme poverty
Advocate giving more – directly – to the world’s poorest
Our comprehensive platform supports many proven methods
You can change the world right now:
Even small actions cause big changes!
And the more you do, the better our world will be…
YOU can take the next step:
