Donate to Avaaz and support a great cause

What is Avaaz.org?

The name Avaaz was derived for the Persian word for “voice”. Avaaz.org was launched in 2007 as a global civic organisation that promotes activism on issues such as climate change, human rights, animal rights, corruption, poverty and conflict. These are the issues that most need addressing in some of the more disadvantaged countries around the world, and Avaaz works to “close the gap between the world we have and the world most people everywhere want”.

Avaaz.org is “the world’s largest and most effective online campaigning community for change” with over 25 million members in 194 countries, and operating in 15 languages.

What’s happening now?

“There’s 40 million of us now, the largest campaigning community ever. This fall, millions of us changed the game on climate change with a profound shift in political momentum on the issue. It was magical. As inspiring as the thousands of us who put our hands up to risk our lives on the front line of the Ebola fight. And the millions of us who took action to protect our oceans and defeat a Monsanto mega-project. Politicians, media and people, are saying the same thing – we’re bringing hope.

And hope is exactly what our world is desperate for. It’s the game changer.

That hope and this precious community is made possible by a just a tiny fraction of our community who have signed up to give even a small amount help cover our operational costs. We only ask once per year — so if it feels right, pledge to support Avaaz in 2015 with a one-time donation, and help us all rise to this moment — we’ll process your pledge only if we reach our goal of 20,000 new supporters.”
