About the One Disease Founder
When I meet people like Sam I feel such gratitude and a greater sense of purpose and connectedness to my WHY and why I established The Human Kind Project.
I love meeting other people who do things because they simply KNOW and FEEL that “it just has to be done” even when they are busy doing many other things. In Sam’s case this is a ridiculous amount of things… see bio below
Since I established the foundation Human Kind Project we get approached weekly by all sizes of organisations looking for support and funding.
When I starting Human Kind I knew we needed to treat it as a business and always ensure that we support organisations that are being effective and have low overheads.
When assessing potential partner organisations my team work through criteria that has to be met. We do this simply as a test of accountability in the same way as shareholders do so with companies within which they own shares. We want to ensure the social impact made by donations is the return on investment you expect.
Firstly and arguably most importantly, what is their vision and does it correspond with what they are doing? Secondly does the organisation meet our values of educate, empower, equality and entrepreneuership? Lastly the next critical number – of all the dollars raised by the organisation what ratio goes to the actual service? – are they lean and mean? Lets just say a lot of conversations stop here.
Why One Disease as our second partner?
Human Kind Project also believe, that no Australian should suffer from a preventable disease – ever and 82% of funds raised go to the service provision.
