50 Acts of Giving Back

50 Acts of Giving Back is a national initiative demonstrating the power of the social media in transforming the way social good can be performed in today’s world. This initiative is funded entirely by Mark & Ismini Svensson, who, under the banner ‘50 Acts of Giving Back,’ are traveling to all 50 states in the U.S performing 50 acts of kindness supporting among others: disabled young athletes, children suffering from cancer, homeless veterans, and hard working single mothers. Every act of kindness is the result of an online discussion with citizens through StayUNITED's Facebook and Twitter pages. The goal of this initiative is to promote volunteerism and show how technology and the use of the social platforms can transform the way citizens across the globe can become active in their communities and perform social good. 








Take Action


Perform your act of kindness and share it with StayUNITED. By devoting just a few minutes of your time, you can really make a difference. You can prepare meals for the homeless, visit the elderly, help out in an orphanage, or donate your 'old' clothes to someone in need. Any act of kindness, no matter how seemingly insignificant, influences the progress of our world. Inspire even more people to do the same, motivate others to become active global citizens, and help start a chain reaction of kindness! You can email us your pictures and videos to and we will share your acts of kindness on our social media pages. You can also tweet us at StayUNITEDTweet using hashtag #50Acts about issues of your concern and help shape future StayUNITED projects. So take action, join the conversation online, motivate others, and help change the world.
