The recent election has made us reflect upon why we exist as an organization. The negative political rhetoric can be exhausting and disheartening. But now is the time to come together. We at Unearth the World have found in our travels across the globe that we are – in fact – more alike than different. We may have different customs, traditions, religions or ideas. But, we are all humans.

We believe that it is more important than ever to get to know our neighbors, explore cultural differences and work towards peace and understanding. This is the very reason we focus on working side by side with international communities.

We know that the future seems uncertain. We have found that it always feels good to get involved in SOME way. So today, we encourage you to play an active role in making the world a better place. Do something small, like hugging your friend or smiling at a stranger. Or do something big like international service or local volunteering. Whatever you choose to do, choose inclusivity, love and compassion.

Light and Leadership

“Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year. But when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in.” -Unknown
