Care2 was founded in 1998 with a simple mission: to help make the world a better place. Today, Care2 is a highly-engaged social network of nearly 30 million citizen activists standing together for good and making extraordinary impact- locally, nationally and internationally- by starting petitions and supporting each other’s campaigns.
As a fast-growing, privately-held, certified B Corporation (B Corp), Care2 is committed to using the power of business to make a positive social and earth-friendly impact on the world.
Care2 has been a pioneer of online advocacy since its inception. They provided the first central platform for online petitions, and were the first to help nonprofit organizations tap into this passion to grow their organizations. Care2 has now helped 1,500 nonprofit organizations recruit more than 40 million donor leads.
The Care2 community realizes the power of online petitions in a world where government can be frustratingly ineffective. Together, they have protected wolves around Denali National Park, won justice for victims of discrimination, saved dogs from euthanasia, helped get GMOs out of Hershey chocolates, stopped an old growth oak grove from destruction, shut down an abusive farm, stopped the killing of rare owls, and much more.
Care2 provides powerful tools, expert support and a massive like-minded community to help make a difference in your life, your community, and the world.
