SPONSOR HUMANITY! MAKE OUR VISION A REALITY

SPONSOR HUMANITY! MAKE OUR NONPROFIT VISION A REALITY

Updated on February 16, 2021

The Inspiration

Since the pandemic began in early 2020, millions have lost their livelihoods and are struggling to meet the basic needs of food and utilities. Social distancing and lock-downs have amplified depression and loneliness for so many. Humanity is in desperate need of connection!
 
The idea for Sponsor Humanity came to me in late March of 2020 as a way to address these pressing issues, and our first major project is already in the works!

The Vision

We are currently developing­ a mobile app to create an immediate network of support, connecting people to help with food security in these challenging times. This platform will facilitate direct, uninterrupted, grassroots-level assistance: a chain effect of constant giving.

When the app is functioning and stable, we will begin our second project: developing a network of Food Security Empowerment Initiatives in or near food deserts (please visit our website  for more info).

Ultimately, our vision is to co-create and participate in a worldwide network of organizations whose purpose is to build connections and nurture the qualities of generosity and kindness in support of basic needs being met for all.

The Implementation

Since mid-March of 2020, I have worked passionately to make this dream a reality, and much progress has been made.

We have incorporated as a nonprofit in the state of Florida and have submitted our application to the IRS for recognition as a Federal 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation. We have a team of brilliant and dedicated people, including a Board of Directors, a marketing volunteer, and software developers to help us execute our vision.

The Ask: Updated on February 16, 2021

At this time, we have utilized the $1,215 raised so far in combination with private donations to cover our legal fees for assistance with the 501(c)3 application process.

We have refocused our campaign with a goal of raising $5,000. These funds will help to kickstart the Sponsor Humanity, Inc. Mobile Application, supporting our volunteer developers in acquiring the necessary equipment, licenses, hosting, and back end consultation/support, and data storage. 


ACCOUNTABILITY IS IMPORTANT. We will send regular updates to our subscribers to show how every dollar is spent from this campaign, so you can see exactly how your money is being used. (Sign up to receive our updates HERE,  and follow us on Instagram  and Facebook )

YOUR DONATION WILL HELP TO SOW THE SEEDS OF CONNECTION, GENEROSITY, AND KINDNESS.

Our End Goal:

We envision a world in which human beings share the abundant resources of our planet with an attitude of generosity, kindness, and conscious stewardship of the Earth.

If Sponsor Humanity achieves its mission, human beings will meet their full potential as individuals and as a collective.

There is a saying from the Sioux Nation that “the longest journey you’ll ever make is the one from your head to your heart.”

FAQs

HOW WILL THE SPONSOR HUMANITY APP WORK?

Initially, our app will function with the agreement to “Pay It Forward.” Folks in need can request emergency assistance in the form of an e-gift card to buy groceries at their nearest grocery store.

Participants with resources will purchase and provide these e-gift cards with the understanding that their generosity will be “paid forward” through spontaneous acts of kindness and generosity in the daily life of the recipient.

***There is a long term vision to facilitate payment of utility bills as well, and we are researching the most effective way to do this.***

 Once the App has been established, we will develop an option for “Energy Exchange” in which people can offer goods, services, and crafts in exchange for support.

Committed to offering the highest-quality experience possible, we are developing a vetting process and procedures that will help to ensure success.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN “PAY IT FORWARD” AND “ENERGY EXCHANGE” IN THE MOBILE APP?

"Pay It Forward" is simply an agreement to do an act of kindness in our daily life in response to the help we received. "Energy Exchange" will be an option in which the financial help is offered with an agreement for some good or service in return.

WHY BECOME A FEDERAL 501(c)3 ORGANIZATION?

Becoming a federally recognized nonprofit organization will empower us to help on a larger scale by enabling access to a wider pool of donors and helping establish the credibility of our purpose.
