It's easy to get caught up in platforms offering developers riches, or big mashup acquisitions. Now, we like all sorts of applications, but we often don't take time out to recognize those looking to create change through APIs.

Social Actions takes actions posted on the web from more than forty different socially progressive organizations, and aggregates them into a common format for easy discovery. The actions are concrete activities like volunteering, donating, signing a petition, making a loan, or attending a meetup, all in the service of "making a difference" for issues like Darfur, cancer, LGBT, prison reform, and other activist concerns. On the Social Actions site interested citizens can search the opportunities, and an API (our Social Actions API profile) allows developers to build on top of the stream of postings.
