Help Me Start a Non-Profit to End Poverty w/ Volunteerism and a Self-Replicating SystemSubmitted by Jaktober on Fri, 08/17/2012 - 00:48
I put together this video/article recently to talk about my idea for a "Human Fund" - as opposed to a Hedge Fund - that would invest in specific charity projects in specific areas to maximize effect: http://freeindependentsun.com/natural_law/help-me-start-a-no...
In the article above, along with the video, is a detailed plan for how to do this.
I have a chip-in for $2020 to get my started (as I explain in the video and article): http://jaktober.chipin.com/human-fund (I need to give it a post)
I haven't applied for the Shuttleworth Foundation yet (was working on my resume and letter when I got distracted with this idea: http://www.dailypaul.com/249350/creating-the-rnc-one-sheet-n... )
The Liberty community has helped me out before while volunteering on the campaign. I recently helped bump the "Paul vs. Obama Poll' to the front page: http://www.dailypaul.com/246916/why-isnt-this-on-the-front-page , and have contributed a bunch to the movement.
This is my personal Liberty project that I'd like to get going. I'm going to be hitting up more than my Liberty network for this, but anything you all can help with would be greatly appreciated.
Let's show them that Liberty folk can walk the walk, and really will (and are) taking care of social needs through volunteerism, not through government and force.
