Wide Awake

Campaign for Change supports Wideawake.org as our global impact initiative. Wide Awake is a non-profit collaboration working to increase the impact of overseas giving - 100% of donations directly fund grassroots projects for those in need. Over the last two years, Strike employee support provided funding to Wide Awake to build a family home, a community bathroom, multiple communal eating areas, and a community center and warehouse that provides daily meals to over 9,500 Nicaraguans. The funds also bought school supplies for 100 children and sponsored sports camp attendance for 114 teens.
