Little x Little

Pull up a chair at an 80,000-person table.

We are proud of the latest Common Ground campaign in 2018 ‘Little by Little’. The campaign is rooted in the truth that exponential change can be made possible through the repetition of little acts. Solving a problem like hunger doesn’t happen overnight. It takes all of us coming together and mobilizing. This list of upcoming events is where you’ll find inspiration about the small changes you can make. This campaign received 2018 Global Leadership Award from United Nations Foundation.
