DetailsCare2 is a social networking website that was founded by Randy Paynter in 1998. Care2 collects signatures for a number of petitions for left-wing causes, such as animal rights, climate change, LGBTQ rights, reproductive rights and more. Topics include ending criminalization of homelessness, closing fur farms, ending use of plastic straws, and demanding the firing of those accused of sexual assault. Care2 petitions are often sponsored by left-wing organizations such as Planned Parenthood, PETA, Human Rights Campaign, and others. Care2 used to run blogs, Care2 Causes and Care2 Healthy Living, but appears to have phased out such content around 2018.
About Care2Care2 bills itself as "the world's largest community for good." According to its website: "Care2 Stands Against: bigots, bullies, science deniers, misogynists, gun lobbyists, xenophobes, the willfully ignorant, animal abusers, frackers, and other mean people. If you find yourself aligning with any of those folks, you can move along, nothing to see here. Care2 Stands With: humanitarians, animal lovers, feminists, rabble-rousers, nature-buffs, creatives, the naturally curious, and people who really love to do the right thing."
