August 21 '07: CNN has a new section on its website called Impact Your World which was designed to offer disaster resource outlets to all its customers "to take action on the news you witness and to impact your world." The site's goal is to allow viewers an opportunity to learn how to send monetary, logistical aid or resources to areas affected by natural or man-made disasters.
The site is broken into six categories: Refugees and Homelessnes; Poverty; Health; Children; Planet in Peril; and Natural Disasters. In each of those categories, viewers on the site can find links to organizations which help aid victims of those disasters.CNN said on its website that it does not endorse any organization individually but that "information is provided as an inspiration ... to explore the best ways for you to impact your world." Currently, the Peru earthquake and the Utah mine collapse have been highlighted.
