LOS ANGELES, Jan. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- #CantDoNothing launches both the start of their organization and Global Refugee Crisis social campaign, designed to help everyday individuals have a real positive impact and assist refugees worldwide.

Founded by actress Milana Vayntrub and entrepreneur Eron Zehavi, #CantDoNothing is focused on helping each and every person effect real change.  #CantDoNothing is supporting new and thriving organizations like The Syria Fund, Boat Refugee Foundation, and Off Track Health to help everyone spread their voice, time, and money to help thousands of refugees.

"There are millions of refugees out there, and while many people are aware of the extent of the crisis, very few people understand how they can help.  That's why #CantDoNothing is so important," said Off Track Health.

#CantDoNothing, hosted at www.CantDoNothing.org and on social media outlets at @CDNGeneration, focuses on helping refugees by having its supporters use their voice in posting on social media, their time in volunteering, or their money in donating to select organizations working directly with refugees. The organization concentrates on the real positive impact participants can have in helping refugees immediately. 

"It is important for us to emphasize not just the problem, but all the things we can do to end it," says founder Milana Vayntrub. "We hope everyone will post about #CantDoNothing on their social media, and challenge three friends to participate by tagging them. I really believe we all have to power to be influencers, to use our voice and create a ripple effect of good."

Milana was inspired to start her organization after a trip to Greece where she volunteered her time helping refugees. At first, she didn't know how to help but she felt she couldn't "do nothing."  And now, Milana has created the #CantDoNothing campaign to help others take action.  To participate, simply film a video or take a photo with your #CantDoNothing sign and post to your social outlets explaining how you are taking action and why you know in your heart you #CantDoNothing. To help the movement grow, tag 3 more people to participate! For more information on both the organization and the social campaign visit #CantDoNothing at CantDoNothing.org.
