Buddy Project - Gabby Frost

Buddy Project - Gabby Frost

2020-01-1400:20:23

What if a buddy didn't just mean someone you can chat with about things you like or stuff you have in common with like your taste in music or hobbies? What if your buddy also made you feel less isolated and, in your dark moments, helped save your life? On April 8th, 2013, after discovering three girls on Twitter contemplating suicide, then 15-year old Gabby Frost decided to create Buddy Project. In the same way she felt supported by online communities she joined, Gabby thought she could pair people up as buddies. With this peer support system, her goal was to to help prevent suicide and raise awareness for mental health. Episode sponsored by Riley's Way Foundation.

Kindness manifests in countless ways. Seeing someone give up a seat for the elderly, strangers greeting each other on the street or hearing a friend say “I’m here. We can get through it together.” And when kindness is fully revealed in a person, it’s actually quite impossible to miss. This episode shares the healing power of kindness and its amazing capacity to transcend life. On our first podcast for 2020, we will hear the emotional story of Ian Sandler, a loving father and the co-founder of Riley's Way Foundation. With his wife Mackenzie, Ian turned his grief into an enduring legacy to honor his daughter's life.

When Asha Curran first heard of the idea for GivingTuesday from her colleague Henry Timms, she did not foresee how one day of giving could turn into a global movement. She was then working at 92nd Street Y, a nonprofit community and cultural center located in Manhattan, New York. Throughout her career, Asha helped push what’s possible: How do you innovate for nonprofits? What does community mean in an age where there are no boundaries? In this episode, we’re sharing the story of social good innovator and CEO of GivingTuesday, Asha Curran. Before taking GivingTuesday into the next stage of evolution, Asha helped propel successful programs at 92nd Street Y such as the Social Good Summit, an annual event for tech and global development leaders, in partnership with the UN Foundation and Mashable. But one particular experiment led Asha to where she is today: #GivingTuesday, a day when people would give back to causes and issues that matter to them. Last year, over 400 million dollars were donated online in just 24 hours of Giving Tuesday. The movement is now celebrated in over 60 countries. GivingTuesday has radically changed how people think about generosity, and showed the power of communities everywhere to create change.

Be Generous - Ben Higgins

Be Generous - Ben Higgins

2019-11-2500:18:00

When Ben Higgins joined The Bachelor for its 20th season, his life was never the same. But what a lot of people may not know about Ben is that he works tirelessly to turn the spotlight on someone else. In November 2016, Ben co-founded Generous International, a for purpose business that exists to make the world better — providing the consumer a unique opportunity to impact someone's life through their purchase. From coffee to apparel, Generous International’s mission is to create a movement of generosity and to funnel profits of every product sold towards efforts focused on alleviating poverty and bringing hope to the world. There’s one conversation Ben had with a friend that he holds on to to this day: " ‘There's nobody that's meant to be famous, not one.’ He goes, 'It’s what you do with the fame that matters.’ That moment I realized that there was some really great things, there were some world changing things that we could do with the platform that I had been gifted.“ Purchase our 1st MERCH featuring our ‘Society of Kind Humans’ shirt: sincerelyhueman.com/store     Learn more about Generous International: generousmovement.com —— Advertise with us: sincerelyhueman.com/advertise Pitch your story: sincerelyhueman.com/contact Follow Sincerely, Hueman on Instagram @sincerelyhueman This show is produced by Hueman Group Media. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/sincerelyhueman/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/sincerelyhueman/support
Every year, more than 4 million people die from direct and indirect exposure to air pollution. Think about that for a second. The very thing that keeps us alive is also the one that’s killing us. Even with problems that seem unsolveable, there are incredible people working day and night to find solutions — like Anirudh Sharma, cofounder and president of Graviky Labs and the chronic inventor behind AIR-INK. Before AIR-INK, Anirudh built Lechal, a vibrating shoe that aimed to help the visually-impaired navigate their worlds better. With Anirudh’s passion to use technology as a tool for good, AIR-INK, the first ink made entirely out of air pollution, was created. At Graviky Labs where AIR-INK is processed, air pollution is recycled and turned into hydrated, industrial-grade pigments and inks. Graviky Labs’ technology can be used to capture carbon pollution from the exhaust of generators and small chimney stacks. With AIR-INK, pollutants which could have been in the lungs of millions of people, or mixed into our water and land streams are now beautifully resting on murals and paintings. In the 2019 MIT Solve Challenge, AIR-INK was selected as one of 32 Solver teams out of 1400 applicants from over 100 countries. MIT Solve is an initiative of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, which advances lasting solutions from tech entrepreneurs to address the world's most pressing problems.  —— Purchase our 1st MERCH featuring our ‘Society of Kind Humans’ shirt: sincerelyhueman.com/store Learn more about AIR-INK: www.graviky.com This episode was produced in partnership with MIT Solve.

WORLD KINDNESS DAY SPECIAL: In 5th grade, Marley Dias felt dissatisfied with the books her school had to offer, particularly the lack of diversity in the stories she was reading. “I never saw black girls as the main characters,” says Marley.  At age 10, with the help of her mom, grassroots activist Dr. Janice Dias, Marley turned her frustration into action. In November 2015, #1000BlackGirlBooks was born — a campaign that aims to collect and donate books with black, female protagonists. Due to her relentless attitude and after earning well-deserved media coverage on the biggest platforms, including the Ellen Show, Marley far exceeded her initial goal. Apart from promoting diversity in children’s literature, Marley has reached milestones beyond her years. She earned the title editor for a section on online magazine ELLE.com called Marley Mag, and wrote her own book ‘Marley Dias Gets It Done: And So Can You!” Learn more about #1000BlackGirlBooks: grassrootscommunityfoundation.org/1000-black-girl-books-resource-guide Follow Marley Dias: @iammarleydias (instagram.com/iammarleydias) Purchase our 1st MERCH featuring our ‘Society of Kind Humans’ shirt: https://sincerelyhueman.com/store —— Special thanks to our incredible Production Intern Katie Santamaria.

What if there’s a thing you absolutely enjoy that you think: ‘This would be infinitely better if I shared it with another person.’ What if that one thing were your sight — literally the fact that you can see and enjoy everything around you with clarity and without obstruction. It’s something you probably take for granted, but others could only dream of.  In this episode, you’ll hear the story of Anirudh Koul, former Head of Artificial Intelligence and Research at AIRA (Artificial Intelligence Remote Assistance ). Anirudh is a prolific innovator who’s worked for tech behemoths like Yahoo and Microsoft. After six years at Microsoft, he joined Aira, a mobile app that connects the blind and low vision community to highly trained, remotely-located agents to enhance their everyday experiences. The service empowers users, who depend on others to perform daily tasks. Time Magazine named Aira one the Best Inventions of 2018. The startup was also selected as a Solver in the recently concluded 2019 Community-Driven Innovation Challenge at MIT Solve, an initiative of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.  This year, Aira is committed to hiring 100 military spouses as agents who can work remotely from home, while impacting the lives of Aira users.  Aira: aira.io This episode was produced in partnership with MIT Solve.

Have you ever seen a film or piece of content where the experience was so visceral, so moving that you couldn’t forget about it for days? Powerful stories can trigger an emotion, maybe fear, confusion, excitement or joy. They make you ask questions — and want answers. In these moments, you’re no longer a passive audience. You’ve become a participant. In this episode, we’re hearing the journey of Holly Gordon, Co-Founder of Girl Rising and the Chief Impact Officer at Participant Media. Girl Rising is a feature length film that turned into a global movement for girls’ education, anchored in the riveting stories of nine courageous girls living in daunting situations. Today, Holly Gordon is one of the visionary leaders at Participant Media, a company founded in 2004 by social entrepreneur Jeff Skoll. Participant Media uses the power of a good story well told to create real world impact and awareness. Participant Media is behind award-winning and critically acclaimed films and shows including Spotlight, Green Book, RBG, When They See Us, and produces thought-provoking, joyful, and uplifting digital content through its digital entertainment division Soul Pancake. In this episode, Holly tells her own story — from her career as a producer, pursuit to inspire social change through storytelling, to a valuable lesson she shared with her kids when they were little.

As humans, we have personal motivations to succeed, to make ourselves better. But when the going gets tough and we’re bombarded with challenges, don’t we sometimes feel like quitting? What if our goal was to impact another person’s life, not just ours? And we stuck to that image of that one person, maybe a handful or even thousands of people we can potentially help. Would we be so quick to give up? In the case of June Sugiyama, Director at Vodafone Americas Foundation, flipping the script and refocusing the lens was a daily practice. Instead of thinking about how impossible a goal is, she thought more about the opportunity. And that opportunity was to transform the lives of women and girls through technology, and make their dreams a reality. June is a senior leader in corporate social responsibility, philanthropy and social impact. This year, with June at the helm, Vodafone Americas Foundation joined MIT Solve to support technology solutions empowering women and girls.  MIT Solve is an initiative of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology that advances lasting solutions from tech entrepreneurs to address the world's most pressing problems. In the recently concluded Solve Challenge, CareMother, OneSky Caregiver Training and Raaji are three Solver teams that received $75,000 for the Innovation for Women Prize, made possible by the Vodafone Americas Foundation.

Across the US, socks remain the no. 1 most requested clothing item at homeless shelters. When Dave Heath and Randy Goldberg discovered this need in the homeless community, they decided to solve the problem head on. Bombas launched in 2013 with a mission to change the way people think about socks. Not only are socks a critical item of clothing that needs to be at its comfiest, but they can be a way for all of us to make people in  homeless, in-need and at-risk communities feel seen. When Kelly Cobb joined the company in 2016, she had the opportunity to define her role as VP of Community and Giving. Beyond the brand’s “buy one, give one” model, Bombas works closely with thousands of giving partners to engineer clothing that specifically meets the needs of people who don't have the luxury of putting on clean clothes every day. Kelly and her team leads their Community Program, which enables like-minded community members to volunteer and support the brand's dedication to helping the homeless, and better understand the root issues of homelessness. Today, Bombas has donated over 26 million high quality, specially-designed clothing items (socks and shirts) to those in need.

Stephanie Benedetto is a former corporate lawyer who found her path to change the world. Prior to starting Queen of Raw, Stephanie worked as a lawyer in the fashion, media/entertainment, start-up, and technology industries and co-founded a sustainable textile manufacturing facility. While spending a lot of time in factories and warehouses, she saw perfectly good fabric collecting dust. These would eventually be burned or sent to the landfill. There was no alternative. This was when Stephanie realized that there was a supply demand mismatch — and she wanted to do something about it. Today, Stephanie is the CEO and Founder of Queen of Raw, a marketplace to buy and sell unused textiles. The company keeps these materials out of landfills and turns pollution into profit. “Don't doubt that you can make a difference and you can solve problems and absolutely go change the world,” says Stephanie. Stephanie was selected to join the Circular Economy Solver Class in the recently concluded 2019 Solve Challenge from MIT Solve. MIT Solve is an initiative of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology that advances lasting solutions from tech entrepreneurs to address the world's most pressing problems. The incoming Solver class was selected by Solve’s expert judges and was  selected from a pool of nearly 1,400 applicants from over 100 countries. After a rigorous process, Queen of Raw, with Stephanie at its helm, was chosen as a promising Solver who will drive transformational change.

What do you want to be most remembered for? When you’re not around, what would you like people to say? Is it how much money you make, awards you’ve received or anything that solely points to your personal accomplishments? What about, how you went out of your way to help a friend or a stranger or how you built a career that ultimately, made a positive impact in the world? In this episode, we’re sharing the remarkable story of Gary Cohen. He is the board chair and founder of Together for Girls, a global public-private partnership dedicated to ending violence against children, with a particular focus on sexual violence against girls. Gary is also the Executive Vice President of Global Health at BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) and President of the BD Foundation.

RICSI educates current and new generations of business leaders to integrate social innovation into their business strategies.  “You can't control what happens in life.

In Part 2 of our Social Good Summit special, we're sharing the journey of Rajesh Mirchandani, Chief Communications Officer for the United Nations Foundation, a partner of the Social Good Summit. Rajesh was born in India, but his family moved to the UK when he was just three years old. Rajesh eventually worked as a journalist for the BBC, where he covered a variety of stories and issues. These include the Haiti Earthquake and typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, one of the most powerful tropical cyclones ever recorded in history. After 20 years of global journalism experience, Rajesh left journalism to become an advocate. He now leads a team of skilled communicators working to advance progress on important global issues. In this episode, we'll hear from Rajesh on why the Social Good Summit chose the climate crisis as its sole theme for this year's event, and how climate change affects other issues we’re facing in the world right now.

If you’re part of the younger generation, the idea that you can live a full, healthy and happy life, long enough to see your own children grow, is slipping away because of the greatest threat to humanity: the climate crisis. That’s why we see teen activists like Greta Thunberg and Alexandria Villaseñor holding the megaphone, marching and leading the fight against climate change. They are determined for everyone else to wake up and do something, before irreversible damage is done to our planet. This week, we are proud to work with the Social Good Summit to help amplify stories on their 10th anniversary. A decade ago, Mashable, United Nations Foundation, 92nd Street Y, and United Nations Development Program teamed up to launch a new kind of summit where global leaders, celebrities and activists would gather to celebrate activism, and where attendees would be galvanized into action. SGS will be held on Sunday, September 22nd at the 92nd Street Y. Attendees will hear from a diverse range of speakers, from activist Greta Thunberg to author Jonathan Safran Foer, Katie Couric, Chef Jose Andres, Connie Britton and many more. In Part 1 of our SGS special, you’ll hear the journey of Jessica Coen, Editor in Chief and SVP at Mashable. Jessica has had a prolific career in media. She's held various editorial positions in publications like Vanity Fair and New York Magazine. Apart from her role as Editor in Chief and Head of Content at Mashable, she is also working with remarkable partners at SGS to put together an incredible day of of dialogue and onstage activations.

Jillian Mercado is an indomitable Latina model and disabilities activist. She has spastic muscular dystrophy, and has used a wheelchair for as long as she can remember. Jillian has been stigmatized as a disabled person, but it never held her back from making it in fashion, an industry she’s been in love with when she was young. In 2014, she starred in a groundbreaking campaign with Diesel. The ad shows Jillian in her element — gorgeous, unapologetically herself and showing her disability for everyone to see and embrace. Jillian has also modeled for brands like Olay, Nordstrom and Target and has appeared on the cover of Teen Vogue’s September issue. Jillian is a fierce advocate for people with disabilities. Through her work, she wants people who may be going through the same journey to feel that they are valued, loved and worthy of being alive.

“R U There?” These three words from an anonymous texter catapulted Nancy Lublin into a bold mission: Create rapid-response counseling for people in crisis. In 2013, she launched Crisis Text Line, a nonprofit organization that provides free 24/7 crisis support via text messaging. Research has shown that globally, 1 in 4 people will struggle with mental illness at some point in their lives. And according to the World Health Organization, nearly two-thirds of those with known mental disorder never seek help from a health professional — even if treatment is available. This week, we’re sharing the story of Nancy Lublin, Founder and CEO of Crisis Text Line. Nancy is a tenacious problem-solver. She created Dress For Success, an organization that provides professional outfits, resources and training to women in need. She also previously led DoSomething.org as CEO, turning the failing nonprofit around into one of the largest organizations for young people in social activism and change. We’re also hearing from Bob Filbin, Co Founder and Chief Data Scientist at Crisis Text Line, in this episode. Bob made the critical leap with Nancy to help build a robust service that brings texters “from a hot moment to a cool calm”. By leveraging data and text messaging, Crisis Text Line has seen over 105 million messages exchanged and trains thousands of volunteer crisis counselors monthly. “It’s strangers helping strangers in their darkest moments,” says Nancy. This story does not only cover the topic of mental health. It's a compelling case for the good in humanity. If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, emotional abuse or any type of crisis, we urge you to listen to this story, and know that you are not alone. Support is out there: Text HELLO to 741741 to reach a trained Crisis Counselor at Crisis Text Line.

What is a neighbor supposed to look like? Do we want them to appear a certain way? Or are they human beings that we welcome into our homes, people we rely on to share in our milestones or mourn with us in times of tragedy. So instead of asking what they should look like, the better question is: How should a neighbor be? Are they kind? Do they lend us a helping hand when we need them? After moving from job to job, and city to city, Sloane went back to her hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and started Hello Neighbor. The nonprofit works to improve the lives of recently resettled refugee families, by matching them with dedicated neighbors to guide and support them in their new lives. Apart from working in impoverished villages in countries like the Congo, Guatemala and the Philippines, Sloane had a life changing Thanksgiving dinner with a Syrian family. In this episode, we hear Sloane’s journey as the Founder and CEO of Hello Neighbor, what she learned about the refugee experience and the simple acts we can do to make others feel more human.
