World Introvert Day is held on 2 January each year and is an opportunity for people worldwide to better understand and appreciate introverts. The first World Introvert Day was held in 2011.
Introverts are a misunderstood minority. We live in an extrovert world and introverts often appear to be arrogant and strange. Which we aren't. Introverts just work differently. And we are a majority in the gifted population. Most famous scientists, philosophers, artists and thinkers are introverted. On this day, we show that we're not just gifted, but also caring.Support the Fundraiser
Every 6 seconds a child under five dies. Most of these deaths are entirely preventable. We could save millions of lives by providing illiterate mothers with accessible health education. Rural women are the poorest of the poor, the least literate, the most exploited, and the most marginalized of all social groups in developing countries. They often remain invisible and unheard and this is worsening their positions of marginality.Support the Fundraiser
