    This is amazing! Thank you so much for such a comprehensive list of social good blogs! I write about social good as well but travel is still the largest part of my blog. I’m looking to change that as I partner with more NGOs and also attend the upcoming Summit on Social Good. Another good blog that I write for and edit that has a great section on Social Good and Human Rights is called “World Moms Blog”. We have over 50 countries represented and do a regular post on these issues. Finally, Advocates of Human Rights, an NGO based here in Minneapolis who I also know has an excellent blog on these issues.

        Thanks! I love your blog! I am still not sure how I managed to find it. Maybe on Twitter? But I look forward to learning more! I’m getting much more involved with social good writing. It is my passion as I am truly dedicated to volunteering and giving back. Thanks for keeping us all in the loop and I look forward to really diving into all these recommendations from your post today! :) Nicole
