Here at WeAre8 we believe in a better world - one where peace prevails over power, and every citizen recognises their ability to make change every single day.
The International Day of Peace was first celebrated in 1981, when the UN General Assembly passed a resolution to set aside one day each year to foster the ideals and prioritize the goals of “absolute world peace.”
This resolution was sponsored by the UK and Costa Rica, and the nations and communities who continue to embody its goals inspire our team at WeAre8 every day. On 2022’s International Day of Peace, we’ll be reflecting on our own progress and our values of respect, wellbeing, and peace.
Our platform and movement is about changing the way we interact with each other. Social media has fostered a place where hateful communication can thrive, and it makes it incredibly difficult to foster real connections between people. In the digital age, it should be easier than ever to find each other, to organize, to discover what makes us happy. That’s the world WeAre8 is building.
We want to restore this vision of a happier, healthier, more connected planet. On this International Day of Peace, we know it can sometimes seem like we’re headed for a worse place than we started. But we’re asking you to join us and to decide, together, that we will not give up hope.
WeAre8 has enabled the world’s citizens to donate tens of thousands to charities globally, with missions of bringing resources, education, and hope to the most vulnerable populations. Whichever cause is closest to your heart, it is our goal at WeAre8 to help you contribute to it, even if you can only spend a few minutes a day.
Our platform enables thousands of citizens to donate straight to charities they love, simply by watching adverts and building their 8Wallets. Every advert watched guarantees a charity donation, as well as delivering a micropayment straight to you that you can donate to any cause you love.
Here are just some of our amazing charity partners working with us to help bring lasting peace to our precious planet…
British Red Cross & British Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal
For over 50 years, the British Red Cross has been supporting millions of people, both in the UK and around the world, to get the help they need when crisis strikes. You can now donate directly to the British Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal on WeAre8, too, providing vital support to millions displaced by the conflict in Ukraine.
The National Emergencies Trust
This independent charity springs into action within hours of a national emergency, launching appeals to raise funds for survivors and their loved ones. These vital funds are then distributed amongst the relevant charities and impacted groups, fast and fairly.
