Combine caring and action, and you have a powerful force for good.  That’s the notion behind our name. 

 

It’s great to care, but if you don’t put those good intentions into action, nothing will change. The “2” in “Care2” is for putting your intentions into action, as in “Care… to make a difference”.  If we accomplish nothing else, my hope is that Care2 will help a whole lot more people to care about each other and our planet, and take action everyday to help create that change in the world.

 

As leaders of this vision, all of us at Care2 must step up every day to do our part. But tomorrow, those of us in the US have a special opportunity to make a difference as we go to the polls.  No matter who you’re going to vote for, I hope that every single Care2 member who is eligible and physically capable of getting to the polls makes it a priority to vote.   You care - so take action.

 

It’s exciting to see that we’re on the verge of a tremendous change in Washington.  It’s been a frustrating past 8 years, but now is our time to turn things around. Of  course, there’s a lot more than just the presidential election, and I urge everyone to get informed about the various propositions and ballot measures. You don’t want to be making decisions in the voting booth based on whoever came up with the most clever title for their proposition (think “Clear Skies Act” or “Healthy Forests Act”… ouch).  Good sites to get informed are SmartVoter.org and a new site, TransparentDemocracy.org which shows how organizations and people you trust recommend you vote.

 

And, just for fun, don’t forget to cast your vote in Care2’s own presidential poll.    Over 8,000 votes have been cast so far, and there’s a lively discussion with over 600 comments – join in!
