The Huffington Post has spent a decade growing, learning and redefining the media landscape. But on our 10th birthday, one founding principle that's remained is that through our coverage, we empower readers to get involved in the issues they read about on our site. And whenever we can, we aim to inspire our readers give back to their communities.
While it is, of course, our journalistic duty to cover news stories surrounding poverty statistics and failing schools, it is also our journalistic priority to show readers what they can do about it.
So we're celebrating our 10th birthday by raising awareness and money for some of the causes we believe will define the next decade. Read through our stories about homelessness, LGBT rights, climate change and more below and click over to Crowdrise to see what you can do to help.
