At Yahoo!, we tell great stories that inspire people to take action that adds up to change. We're able to do this through powerful storytelling that captures the imagination and empathy of our audiences.
Along with each story, we offer up actions that people can easily take, right in that moment of compassion. And after they've acted, we show them how their individual actions combine with others just like theirs to result in a bigger positive impact. Thousands of people are volunteering, donating, and spreading the word to support causes they care about.
When Yahoo! tells these stories and makes it easy to act on a large scale, we're helping more people be part of How Good Grows.
Here are some success stories:
- When Jodie Nelson's story appeared on Yahoo!, she raised $92,000 within 24 hours for breast cancer education. The professional surfer continues to raise awareness and funds for causes and organizations through Paddle With Purpose.
- The Yahoo! audience carried out 420,000 (and counting) random acts of kindness - good deeds that inspire others and cause a ripple effect of kindness that continues to grow as others join in. See the results from our latest Ripples of Kindness program.
- Over $7.3 million was raised -- through the generous donations of 115,876 members of the Yahoo! community -- to help Japan after the devastating earthquake and tsunami hit on March 11.
