The movement, “We Are American Challenge” is positioned as a public platform for causes, citizens, brands, ?celebrities, and leaders to talk about who they are, and the issues/ causes they care about. Sociafy CEO, Michael ?Sim says: ?“I believe a united voice from diverse backgrounds has the power to transcend cultural ?boundaries and humanize issues nationwide; allowing citizens to work on those issues together, ?as Americans.”
Sociafy will represent a handful of causes and charities that represent American values and standards over the course of the campaign; giving the public the ability to have a more meaningful connection with how their donations are used by partnered charities.
“Education is the key to success, and it must be made available to all citizens of this nation. We believe that though storytelling, we can find a common ground as citizens and embrace a single national identity; and when a common bond between Americans is formed, civic priorities can be reevaluated, and social change can become possible,” concluded Mr.Sim.
