This month, The Huffington Post will celebrate our 10-year anniversary. While we are proud of our past and what the HuffPost family has accomplished together, our eyes are fixed on the next 10 years — both for journalism and for our global community of readers.

To that end, we've partnered with CrowdRise to shine a light on 10 causes for which we believe meaningful strides can be made in the 10 years to come.

Together, HuffPost and Crowdrise reached out to organizations — some prominent groups and some less familiar — that are providing meaningful and innovative solutions. These organizations tackling important problems are the heart of our campaign, "The Next 10," aimed at highlighting causes that will shape the next decade.

Our hope is this will be an opportunity to not only raise money for these important issues, but also to increase awareness about the important work being done on the ground to serve communities that truly need strong advocates.

We hope you'll join us in celebrating our birthday by checking out and possibly supporting the causes and organizations that are part of The Next 10 campaign.
