Joining the Amnesty International has been a wonderful experience for me. Until 3 years ago, I used to get regular print magazines will lots of postcards to send to Presidents, Head of states, Prime Ministers and Embassies across the world asking for a policy amendment or requesting the release of the next Nelson Mandela. Then there is yearly December letter writing marathon. Last year, over 2 million letters were written by hundreds of thousands people in 83 countries and led to the release of two unlawfully jailed prisoners. It's one of the easiest way to change the world.
