About

Every day so many bad things happen in this world: people die of poverty, starvation, politics fails us and corruption damages.

But every day so many good things happen as well: breakthroughs in health, science and technology, governments committing to change and people having fabulous new ideas on how to see good occur.

What if we could take just one action a day, to fight the bad and/or help the good?

This blog aims to make us aware of a bad thing and a good thing that happens everyday. And, in addition, provide an avenue to do something in response. Every day a small action, to change things, to react and make a difference.
