Care2 is a unique community for people who want to make a difference.
Here are some stats to show you just how distinct we are:
Care2 was founded in 1998, and since that time has grown to a community of tens of millions of people. Every 8 seconds, Care2 welcomes a new member. As impressive as this is, we actually reach an audience that's far larger than this -- 150 million people -- through our Media Partner Network.
Advocacy. We're overflowing with it.
Our petitions have gathered more than 100 MILLION signatures, making us the largest hub for activists on the web. Here are a few of our members' favorite advocacy victories in the last year:
Congress repealed "Don't Ask Don't Tell" in December following years of advocacy by individuals and nonprofit organizations like Human Rights Campaign and Servicemembers Legal Defense Network (both Care2 clients). Care2 delivered hundreds of thousands of petition signatures in opposition to the law.
The Senate passed FDA Food Safety Modernization Bill (S.510) in November. Care2 hosted four petitions on this issue, delivering more than 70,000 signatures in support of the legislation on behalf of Consumer's Union and MakeFoodSafe.org.
