Be the Cause is a network of individuals who not only wish to make a difference in the world, but who also wish to change their own lives in the process. Realizing that change must first begin with ourselves, each project that Be the Cause coordinates meets a clearly defined need, but also gives participating volunteers an opportunity to be inspired and feel fulfilled.
What first started as a few friends meeting on a regular basis has now grown into a volunteer-run social network. Since conception in 2002, Be the Cause has organized over 400 projects in numerous countries all through the efforts of volunteers alone. Although this force has probably contributed millions of dollars worth of volunteer hours, its impact is still measured by the changes that take place in our tiny little hearts.
Despite the number of completed projects, the focus of Be the Cause is still the same today as it was in the beginning, to create meaningful opportunities of service. Volunteers, when they become part of the network, can either initiate new projects of their own or participate in projects already under way in their local area.
