We can help protect great beauty, ourselves and future generations. Grand Teton National Park in 1969, Wyoming, USA
Hearts & Minds is building a Global Survival Campaign on Poverty, Terrorism, and the Environment.
It starts with an inspiring, powerful message:
You can change the world
The more you know, the more you'll realize: Together we can change the world. And we need to do it now - more than ever:
Billions of lives - including ours - and all future generations are at stake.
Proven solutions exist. But not enough is being done to get to the root of the pressing issues that affect us all.
The challenges are great. We need to work together for:
Every child looks forward to the future
Solutions are possible. Private charity plays an important role, but with trillions of dollars at their disposal, our national governments have far greater power to make a difference. Here's the problem:
“The politicians do not lead, they follow. It’s the
people who lead.”
Curbing politicians' wasteful, pork barrel spending and redirecting those funds can greatly reduce world poverty. Less than two cents on the dollar of our GDP (total national income) may be all that's needed.
Often the media only reports what they think people are already interested in. We can urge them to fully cover pressing issues. We the people have to show the way.

No one can do this for us. We have to do it. Once people understand, they'll support programs that are in everyone's best interest. But who will come forward with the necessary vision?
At Hearts & Minds we say, "We will. Join us!"
We endorse these words by Martin Luther King, Jr.:
When it comes down to it, that's all any of us truly needs to do, what is right. And that's something all of us can do.
What you can do
You can do something powerful, right here, right now!
A good start: Easy, effective actions
