Top 55 Social Good Ideas in June

From Charitable Micro-Homes to Voluntary Stranger Confessionals

— July 2, 2016 — Social Good
From high-level initiatives to more localized projects, the June 2016 social good trends reveal that no project is too big or too small to make a positive impact on the world.

When it comes to larger-scale initiatives, one of the most powerful tools for mobilizing people is social media. For instance, the 'Search Racism, Find Truth' campaign leveraged the power of YouTube to help combat xenophobia in Germany. Similarly, female boxer Cary Williams used the hashtag #tooprettymovement over Twitter and Instagram to encourage young women to strive towards their goals.

Of course, not all social movements are meant to go viral. As the June 2016 social good trends reveal, localized campaigns can also make a major impact on the lives of those in need. One of the most powerful examples of this is the 'Urban Confessional' project, which helped to break down barriers between strangers.
