Swearbox has teamed up with 50/50 to raise donations for the East Africa crisis. 50/50 is a collaborative experiment, a platform of 50 little bets: digital projects created and run by individuals and teams of makers. Each project aims to engage a network of supporters to help spread the word and generate as much money for famine aid as possible. A seemingly impossible challenge first hatched by Good for Nothing and Made by Many, 50/50 is open to everyone. Whatever you decide to do, do something. All funds go to UNICEF
Fuck Cancer is a movement that activates Generation Y to engage with their parents about early detection of cancer.

WildAid is the only organization that focuses on reducing the demand for wildlife products by specifically targeting consumers with engaging public service announcements and education initiatives.

We also protect threatened wildlife and reduce human-animal conflict through comprehensive field programs working with local governing authorities and surrounding communities of marine protected areas, national parks and reserves, in Ecuador, Costa Rica, Indonesia, and India.
