Care2's stated mission is to help people make the world a better place by connecting them with the individuals, organizations and responsible businesses making an impact.
Care2 members create an online identity by filling out a profile with personal information, as in most social networking sites, but Care2 also asks for more information about its members' involvement in activism and personal life. The social interactions on Care2 revolve around groups that connect people who care about similar issues. Internet petitions and news articles posted by members are also frequently used.
On December 28, 2011 there was a security breach at Care2 in which their servers were attacked and password data that they stored unencrypted on their servers was accessed by hackers.
