No More Poverty and co-founders Michael Omidi and Julian Omidi support UniversalGiving and its mission to connect individuals and companies with trustworthy charities.
No More Poverty and its co-founders Michael Omidi, MD and Julian Omidi are supporters of UniversalGiving, an award-winning nonprofit that helps people give and volunteer with vetted, quality opportunities all over the world. It is all about making the connection to trusted and effective charity organizations making a meaningful difference in the world. A specially-designed website helps individuals connect with organizations that serve their passion. Customized corporate services are also available to help Fortune 500 companies administer social responsibility programs for the company and their employees. UniversalGiving does all the upfront work to ensure that every featured charity meets quality standards for both the work performed and operational practices.
“UniversalGiving makes it easy for everyone to connect with worthy organizations around the world,” says Julian Omidi, co-founder of No More Poverty. “Many people are passionate for a cause and are stymied when it comes to finding worthy organizations and volunteer opportunities. UniversalGiving provides access to projects that people would never hear of otherwise. My brother and I commend and support this means of making valuable connections.”
The vision of UniversalGiving (http://www.universalgiving.org) is to “Create a World Where Giving and Volunteering Are a Natural Part of Everyday Life.” “Our policy is to have 100% of each donation made on our site go directly to the cause,” says Pamela Hawley, Founder and CEO of UniversalGiving. “We pass the money through to our NGO (non-governmental organizations) partners to make sure the money reaches those who need it most. This means our operating expenses have to be covered by other means. No More Poverty’s support will help us continue to provide valuable services, connecting resources to organizations around the world.”
UniversalGiving is an award-winning website allowing people to donate and volunteer with the top performing projects all over the world. Projects are vetted through a proprietary Quality Model to ensure the most effective, trustworthy philanthropy possible. Unique to UniversalGiving, the organization takes no cut on donations. 100% of each donation goes directly to the cause. UniversalGiving Corporate handles the strategy, operations and NGO vetting for corporations to ensure the success of their international giving and volunteering programs.
