    Hello, BridgeThinkers.

    My post today is to highlight an organization that I've been connected with for many years and which has inspired me to make a difference in society.

    This organization is Idealist.org. Although being an American organization, I found out about it in Brazil...

    Here you have a brief presentation of Idealist.org:

    Idealist is a project of Action Without Borders, a nonprofit organization founded in 1995 with offices in the United States and Argentina. Idealist is an interactive site where people and organizations can exchange resources and ideas, locate opportunities and supporters, and take steps toward building a world where all people can lead free and dignified lives.


    BridgeThink got a lot of its inspiration from Idealist and the people as well as resources we met in this worldwide network.


    Now Idealist is launching a campaign that is certainly in line with BridgeThink's philosophy. In its core, it says that there are three challenges that run across all issues and communities and if we can overcome them, most of our other problems will be easier to deal with.


    These three challenges are:

    1. A big gap between our good intentions and our actions.

    2. Our problems are connected, but we are not.

    3. The world is full of good ideas that don't spread quickly enough.


    Please, take a minute to read Idealist's proposal and maybe join it in the way you think you can contribute most to make a difference connected with other idealists.
