Actions to Your World's News: Donate. Petition. Volunteer.

News informs us of problems, events, and their impact. Done well, the sense of immediacy is palpable, and so too is the impulse to take action. But the divide between problems presented by the news and relevant solutions is vast. The gap elicits a passive, helpless and oftentimes depressing news experience.

ReACT solves this by providing timely, reliable, and clickable actions related to the news; we are a platform for acting and giving when and where it counts the most.
