Excerpt from Teju Ravilochan's interview of Pamela Hawley:
I learned at The Feast Conference in NYC that 60% of Americans think we will not leave the world a better place than we found it.
Pamela Hawley is trying to change that.
Pamela is the founder of UniversalGiving a free, online marketplace connecting people with the opportunity to give and volunteer to the best, impact-driven projects from around the world. Her job, therefore, is to select the organizations that are most committed to and effective at creating social impact and support them through grassroots funding and service. Her ultimate goal is to make giving and volunteering a natural part of every day life.
What I love about interviewing people like Pamela is the opportunity to interact with people who come alive doing what they do. Pamela is relentlessly dedicated to Universal Giving’s mission and embodies the values she espouses in the video below with every fiber of her being. The remaining 40% of Americans who believes we will leave the world a better place than we found it ought to make their bets on her.
