While World Vision is a Christian organization, our child-focused projects are offered freely, regardless of belief, ethnic background, or gender.
Amnesty International is a worldwide campaigning movement that works to promote all the human rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international standards. In particular, Amnesty International campaigns to free all prisoners of conscience; ensure fair and prompt trials for political prisoners; abolish the death penalty, torture and other cruel treatment of prisoners; end political killings and "disappearances"; and oppose human rights abuses by opposition groups.
Amnesty International has around a million members and supporters in 162 countries and territories. Activities range from public demonstrations to letter-writing, from human rights education to fundraising concerts, from individual appeals on a particular case to global campaigns on a particular issue.
Amnesty International is impartial and independent of any government, political persuasion or religious creed. Amnesty International is financed largely by subscriptions and donations from its worldwide membership.
Faith fuels our work and supplies our staff with wisdom and ability, our donors with the resources they share, and enables our recipients to work toward the fulfillment of their dreams.
World Vision began in China in 1950 as one man's dream and passion to help children in need. That dream has blossomed today into a family of over 11,000 committed men and women, working in nearly 90 countries to serve 1.3 million sponsored children, and supported by more than a million donors worldwide.
Let's face it, in a world that loses 31,000 children under the age of 5 every day, there's plenty of need for change. And here's your opportunity to change your world... through World Vision's 30 Hour Famine. When you -- along with a group of your friends - go without food for 30 hours and raise money, that means that hungry children around the world get to eat... and live. That's what the 30 Hour Famine is all about.
The Red Cross is committed to saving lives and easing suffering. This diverse organization serves humanity and helps you by providing relief to victims of disaster, both locally and globally. The Red Cross is responsible for half of the nation's blood supply and blood products.
The Red Cross gives health and safety training to the public and provides emergency social services to U.S. military members and their families. In the wake of an earthquake, tornado, flood, fire, hurricane or other disaster, it provides relief services to communities across the country. The Red Cross is America's most trusted charity, and it needs the support of compassionate Americans to succeed.
There is a wide variety of volunteer opportunities at the Red Cross to support all of the organization's services. People who wish to volunteer should contact their local American Red Cross chapter because the vast majority of volunteer opportunities are typically found within an individual's local community.
