After A Year Of Bleak News, Idealist Launches #IdealistResolution Around The World

NEW YORK, Dec. 29, 2014 — Idealist today launched a global initiative inviting people everywhere to share an Idealist Resolution—something they can do in 2015 to make the world or their community a better place.

“From Syria to the Ukraine, from Gaza and Liberia, and all the way to Ferguson and New York, 2014 was a painful year for many people around the world,” said Ami Dar, Executive Director of Idealist.

“As millions of people make New Year’s Resolutions to improve themselves, Idealist is inviting them to find something they can do, big or small, to make a difference around them,” continued Dar.

At people can learn more, make an Idealist Resolution, and share it across multiple social channels with the hashtag #IdealistResolution.

“Posting an Idealist Resolution for 2015 is one way to start moving from intention to action,” continued Dar. “If each of us takes one small action, the ripple effect would be huge.”

In early January, Idealist will post a compilation of some of the Idealist Resolutions shared around the world. For more information or to participate in this initiative, please visit
