The Wonderment is a global community that promotes awareness and action as youth explore the world around them. Young people submit their ideas for community-improvement projects to the site, and with each submission a “Wondermeter” rises higher. Once the Wondermeter reaches the top, an outside donor will fund the latest user-chosen project—for example, a water-sanitation project in a developing country. Through the site, youth can take their compassion and caring for others and crowdsource community-improvement projects around the world.
We are counting down the last few days of 2017, expectant of what is to come in the New Year. From all of us and our guest authors, we would like to wish you a successful and exciting New Year. We will see you on the other side.
