10 ways to support Shareable

Saul Alinsky, a pioneer of modern community organizing, once said that the mainstream media’s negative drumbeat makes us feel like small failures within a bigger failure. Shareable’s weekly reporting about people-powered solutions does the opposite. It shows that we can solve our toughest problems together. It shows that we can all become successful in a bigger, shared success through collaboration.

In that spirit, we’re sharing 10 meaningful ways you can help Shareable continue our mission to empower people to share during this critical time.
