Impact Your World is CNN‘s audience empowerment initiative, which allows CNN viewers and users to take action on and respond to the news they consume. With Impact Your World, news is no longer passive; ‘Impact‘ buttons on selected stories link people directly to resource pages showing how they can help charitable organizations in categories including Refugees & Homelessness, Poverty, Health and Natural Disasters.

In addition, new weekly on-air vignettes highlight stories that empower CNN‘s global audience to effect real change. Natural disasters including Cyclone Nargis which hammered Myanmar and the devastating Sichuan earthquake have brought about immediate responses and donations. ‘Impact Your World‘ also allows viewers to support individual causes.

We look forward to delivering a powerful brand solution for them across this most worthwhile of initiatives."
