Dear InterNations Changemakers!

After a break in October, we are back this month for ♯8 Social Impact Night, on Tuesday, November 28th!

I know the end of the year is quite busy for many of you, but please join us to share with this great organization.
As the holiday season approaches it brings joy, but for many it can cause them to fall further into depression. Mental health is an important topic that needs to be discussed more, all around the world. And for those living abroad it can be harder to find services and support in your native language. So I am honored to introduce November's NPO.
