As today we celebrate International Peace Day, we at Moneymailme would like to draw attention to the modern challenges that are caused by conflicts around the world, from poverty, hunger, water scarcity, social inequality, environmental degradation, diseases, corruption, racism and xenophobia, to many others.
The International Day of Peace, also known as Peace Day, was brought into being by United Nations Resolutions in 1981 and 2001. The General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples: “Let us all work together to help all human beings achieve dignity and equality; to build a greener planet; and to make sure no one is left behind.” — UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon
The Day’s theme for 2016 is “The Sustainable Development Goals: Building Blocks for Peace.” The Sustainable Development Goals are integral to achieving peace in our time, as development and peace are interdependent and mutually reinforcing. Sustainability addresses the fundamental needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
From supporting education to the arts, social justice to sports, health to the environment, neighborhood issues to service for others, there are many ways to participate in Peace Day. We invite you to offer assistance of relief efforts worldwide and to support the conditions for sustainable development and liberate the resources needed for societies to develop and prosper.
By offering users the possibility to donate with the Moneymailme app, we want to enable fast access to charities around the globe and instant, charge free, donations for users worldwide who wish to support the victims of conflicts.
Moneymailme plans to facilitate response for those affected and help the humanitarian system. Introducing Charitable Causes was the natural step forward in helping people reach people. For the first time, you can use a chat app not just for your own benefit, but to help others. Through our partnerships with GlobalGivingUK, you can have an updated version of the causes, by categories, with all the details needed, and donate in real time, with 0 cost.
Our partner in this, GlobalGiving, has made it possible for local organizations to access the funding, tools, training, and support they need to become more effective and make the world a better place through charitable causes.
