One New Year Resolution That Will Change Your Life Forever

“Each January, roughly one in three Americans resolve to better themselves in some way. A much smaller percentage of people actually make good on those resolutions.”

Did you accomplish the goals you had set for yourself at the beginning of 2016? UN General Assembly and international community did. It was a year of defining the future. An international community gathered together last fall and adopted a set of Global Goals, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that created a shared vision for the future. Will you be a part of this vision?

These goals are extremely ambitious and it would take an effort of every individual to achieve them.

Partnerships between civic, charitable organizations and a private sector will be at the center and more important than ever. GOODdler team is excited about the opportunities that lie ahead. We agree with Kathy Calvin of United Nations Foundation:

“The old way of doing things won’t get us to where we need to go. We need to break down silos — between issues and between constituencies — and work together to drive real change.”

We are committed to make a difference in bridging humanitarian aid and international development efforts with the needs of people in desperate situations. We agree that old ways of doing things will not bring the desired results; we are ready to partner with international community to drive a real change. We are ready to partner with you. Resolution is an action of solving a problem.

Pick a goal that resonates with you and choose to act upon it to make a difference.
