The reality, is you first need to find a cause, something you are passionate about. Follow it with brainstorming ideas of what part you can and will play, whether it's volunteering, donations, or spreading the message around.

Within time, everything falls into place. What seemed like an impossible task, too overwhelming to do alone, becomes a movement. Soon you will soon find you have surrounded yourself with people from all walks of life who have the same goals as you.
