Bridge2Act

Bridge2Act Bridge2Act works with top charities and publishers to allow you to take action, the moment you feel compelled. Do you believe a company can be for-profit and for-purpose?

We do, and that’s why we’ve made it our business to change the way we do good. Guided by an innovative digital platform that makes charitable giving easier and faster, Bridge2Act connects you with opportunities to create impact the moment you feel compelled to. We partner with audited nonprofits and leading media outlets to enable everyday people---the social influencers, the political crusaders, the global thinkers, the local leaders---to get involved in real time, right as news and need breaks. If it sounds simple that’s because it is. We got fed up taking each news story at face value---iconic American cities crumbling, young people being brutalized, natural disasters wreaking environmental havoc---being shown the sadness, injustices, and catastrophes of the world without any conduit for creating change. We felt a call-to-action within, and we wanted to bridge that gap for ourselves and the rest of the world. Today, Bridge2Act is transforming giving through technology and amplifying the social impact each of us can make right from our computers, smartphones, and tablets. Simplifying charity for our changing world. Now that’s giving back for the greater good.

Mission: Bridge2Act’s mission is to leverage actionable digital media to create opportunities for impact.

With mixed emotions, we're announcing that we will be retiring Bridge2Act after 4 impactful years.

A true labor of love, the catalyst for this platform has always been evangelizing for our non-profit partners, and galvanizing individuals to take action the moment they felt compelled. We have loved working with you along this journey, and are still so supportive of your mission, and hope to watch your success for years to come!

To that end, as we decommission our platform, we have decided to partner with Speakable and their Action Button.

Thank you for your support, and your impact.

The world is a better place because of you.

The immense fortune that we all have to be sitting in our own homes, reading this post has become increasingly evident as the events of this weekend have transpired. This message is simple. Give to those who need when they need it wherever they might be. Right now, the need is urgent. We need to support our fellow brothers and sisters in Syria, Lebenon, Jordan, and Turkey, and one of the best ways to fight back is to donate in their honor

An Open Letter from Co-Founder, Samira Panah:

Bridge2Act was founded on the principal that individuals need an avenue to take action the moment they feel compelled. We serve to bridge the gap between information and action, and as a co-founder of Bridge2Act, I have always taken that responsibility seriously. To bring people together, to bridge, to connect-- that is what living a life of service is all about. However, yesterday, I felt that bridge breakdown, threatened by an unconstitutional ban of muslim refugees, visa holders, and green-card-holding permanent residents from 7 countries, including the very one from which my family hails.

As an American Citizen born in Los Angeles to first generation Iran-American parents, Trump's Executive Order on Immigration hit me like a ton of bricks. While my husband and I's immediate family are Citizens, I have cousins who are on Visas and Green Cards. What does this Ban mean for my family? Will we be torn apart? Will we have to live in fear about what is next? Perhaps Trump will not be satisfied with just a Ban of refugees and visa holders-- perhaps next up is a religious registry or a ethnic profile based off the way we all look?! What is most terrifying is the unknown yet eerie resemblance to actions that paved the way to atrocities of the past. With this action, Trump has opened pandora's box, allowing xenophobia to reign rampant in our communities by giving a quite nod of approval to those who demonstrate intolerance.

With the exception of Native Americans, all of us come from immigrant backgrounds. So soon we forget what welcomed the world's immigrants to our shores! The New Colossus written on our Lady Liberty reads, "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!" Why? Because this country was founded by immigrants, and provided each of us with the "American Dream" which I have always interpreted as the opportunity to be anyone I aspired or to achieve anything I dreamed. The creation of Bridge2Act is a derivative of MY American Dream, simply because I was raised by a community of diverse, tolerant individuals who fueled my potential; not extinguished it by making me feel like an outsider. The prevailing xenophobia with Trump is intolerable, arrogant, and completely counter to what once made this country great.

So to our amazing Bridge2Act community, I ask that you continue to #resist and fight for humanity. Let us all come together to demonstrate that we will not be silent in the face of injustice, bigotry, or bullying. We will stand united for what is right, lawful, and constitutionally protected. We will use our voice to condemn these actions and protect the world's most vulnerable. History has shown what happens when a country seeks to divide and detain. Let us not reenact humanities darkest days. Let us instead be the light that eliminates a better path forward, united, as one.

A book can change a kid's life. But every kid doesn't have a book in their hands, let alone in their homes.
Here's what you can do to fix that.
1) Donate your extra books to your public library. It's that easy.
2) Follow @litwithoutlimits and @pajamaprogram to get involved.
3) Make a donation via the #linkinprofile to our favorite nonprofits who are working to get a book to each kid

Meet the #changemaker @haleyhoffmansmith, founder of @litwithoutlimits
1. What is your favorite charity?
My favorite charity is @shininglightinternational - I met them at a Women Powering Change conference and they work in Pakistan. They purchase scarves from women in Pakistan to resell, and all the proceeds go back to the women. It is an incredible way to grant the Pakistani women financial autonomy, which does volumes for their agency in their community and family lives. The scarves are also beautiful!
2. If you were granted three wishes, what would they be?
- To be devoid of any worry or anxiety! I wish I never worried because I can drive myself insane with fear of the unknown or worry about arbitrary matters. I am working on trusting that I can be okay and do my best without the worry. - For every girl and woman to know their worth and concomitantly support the worth in other girls and women around the world. - I guess I'll add a funny one... I wish I had a Mercedes. Great car.
3. Who is your personal hero?
My personal hero is myself, as it should be for anyone. I set the bar for myself and I rely on past instances of outstanding strength, insight, and/or perseverance to propel me through any circumstance.
4. What is the first website you visit every morning?
Does my email count? :) 5. What is a random fact about you?
A random fact about me is that Sex and the City is my all time favorite movie, and I've watched it so many times that I could recite every line on my own.
6. What is your dream dinner party?
What a fun question! I would host it in a house in Tuscany, Italy, with fresh Italian food and wine. I'd invite all my friends and family with special guests @jessiejamesdecker (for her personality), Sonia Sotomayor (for her insight), and the Obama family (including their dogs). #changemaker #actionsnotwords #bethechange

What's your favorite book?
How did it change you?
For Hitha Palepu-Narasimhan, it's The Awakening by Kate Chopin. It taught her to never judge by appearance alone, and to not be afraid to take action. For Samira Panah Bakhtiar, it's The Power Of Now, as it laid the foundation for mindfulness and being present.
A good book can change your life.
Access to books, however, is a real problem for many kids around the country.
This week, we're going to share how we're helping get a book in every kid's hand. #actionsnotwords #reading #literacy #changemaker #bethechange
