“I Heart All Human Kind” is a foundation I’ve started and is overseen by Thomas Masquelier and Melanie Clapham. The foundation values are centred on helping those who are less fortunate by implementing changes that will improve long term outcomes.
Travelling through India, I’ve met some of the poorest people ever encountered, witnessing how much they struggle to meet basic needs including food, clothes, shelter and an education. Initially, I started helping those I met by giving them fresh hot meals, sitting down and engaging in a conversation and giving them access to the hospital when needed. However there are now three families I’ve come to know and have grown close to. I would love to and determined to help them get out of the slums by raising money online through my gofundme page.
The second stream of donations will now be seen with some traditional Rajasthan handicraft items for sale, where 50% of the money raised from the sale will be given straight to the charity. Supporting nine children’s tuition fee for the year, supplying there families with the tools they need to generate there own handicraft business, allowing them to sustain an income and ultimately a better life. The funds raised is also going directly towards an ear operation for one of the daughters, Mushan, whom was born deaf and has never had the chance nor education to communicate with her family or friends.
The vision of the foundation is to help these families and hopefully others in the future, to realise their potential through development, growth and productivity.
Helping these families might not change the world but it will change the world for them, allow them to know that someone cares, giving them hope and strength. Because they too need someone who believes in them and wants the best for them in order to blossom into a wonderful, powerful human being.
