edit: We did a dlive breaking news broadcast which gets into detail on this announcement on Words with Witty and Snook, after I posted this last night.
This is an important YouAreHOPE announcement.
I am publishing this on my own account, because quite simply, it has much larger reach and following, and I want this news to go far and wide.
Further I am assigning the 95% beneficiary of this post as @YouAreHOPE directly, with the remaining 5% going to steem-plus for facilitating the posting interface and beneficiary tool as is their requirement.
And here's the announcement!
What this means, is that operation of the discord community hub will continue, as well as the Coalition of Causes channels representing all the various regions and other charitable and humanitarian aid groups who have enjoyed sharing our space with us since last October. For now, that does not need to change.
The general intention of YouAreHOPE to serve mankind around the world as the world's first Steem exclusive, blockchain transparent, community fueled, game changing way of providing humanitarian aid remains the same as ever, with some major improvements in the pipeline ahead.
Here are some specifics about the "merger" of YouAreHOPE Foundation into The Alliance as one our charitable outreach programs.
The Alliance community personnel will form and operate management and committees as needed to further the endeavors of the YAH foundation with all participation completely voluntary. It's something like when companies in the "real world" also send various employee teams out to Habitat for Humanity or similar projects or something like how McDonald's has the Ronald McDonald house for sick kids, etc.
The newly formed leadership team is as follows:
Co-Founder/Agent of Hope( Venezuela Operations Support): - @Malos10 - TheAlliance member, Helped conceive of YAH and is our longest time and most consistently delivering Agent of HOPE with YouAreHOPE
CEO/Director of Operations: @MichaelDavid - TheAlliance Co-founder, Community Builder, Real world experience in charitable operations
President/Committee Chairman: @Enginewitty - TheAlliance Co-founder, Community Builder, Amazing leader
Marketing/Fundraising: @BattleAxe & #TeamGood &TheAlliance Fam - Battleaxe is an Alliance member and invented the TeamGood hashtag to further all projects serving others in ways that are, aptly put, "good!"
Charity Operations Consulting: @RhondaK - My fellow Alliance member and @NobleWitness teammate, @RhondaK, who runs the successful real world 501.3c Animal Rescue and who has mucho experience operating with volunteers, and in sparse funding conditions.
Why is this necessary?
Because in the 10 months YouAreHOPE has existed, it has soley been managed mostly by me, and it has suffered for my inability to do everything necessary to realize it's full potential.
YouAreHOPE has become a steem platform movement over the past year, everyone I meet has heard of it.
It serves as a shining example of what this community and this platform can do to really change the world.
We have served thousands of needful people with food, clothing, medicine, construction, shelter, improvements, pollution cleanup, shoes, seeds, school supplies, educational materials, education itself, and so much more.
All of it has been accomplished via donations made exclusively and transparently on steem. On OUR blockchain, right here at home. With services delivered by steemians in their distressed communities, and transparently reported on to our donors, showing how 100% of their funding was applied.
I had previously spoken with both about YAH and The Alliance, but this was our first weekend on-site together. The synergy, strategy and all night planning sessions were intense, and fueled with passion for the world of people around us.
Here is what we decided
It's time to focus the organization of the entire @YouAreHOPE Foundation concept into a more fundamentally sound structure going into our second year.
We need to enable it with a larger team of capable and creative leadership, and march strongly into year two of YouAreHOPE, together.
Over the first year, the majority of our work in several countries on several continents seems to keep coming back to orphans, grade school aged children and barely established, poorly funded village schools around the world.
@MichaelDavid and I emptied wine bottles long into the night, discussing ways with fellow Alliance member @crescendoofpeace (Cori) to implement self sustaining orphanages and to develop reliable ground supply chains into disadvantaged areas.
@Enginewitty and @MichaelDavid and I all spent quality time with @Instructor2121 who is likely to help us sort out some ideas around a YAH SMT, once we work out how we would or could use such a thing and just in general, so many ideas came out of this powerhouse group, to 10 or even 100x what YAH is already doing around the world.... and maybe even more! A lot of that falls on the community and platform wide, as those of you who already do, and those of you who still have yet to do so, contribute time, money and resources to making this a world changing, disruptive and effective way of changing how charity trustworthiness and efficiency works, forever.
Throughout history, people have donated charitably, and in every single case, there is ALWAYS some reason to be sceptical of your funds end utilizations. I mean from the earliest time to now, one could never be certain where the money went. I know you understand what I mean. Even at flipping churches!
Here, you can feel secure in your giving because you can always see where everything is going before, during and after our campaigns.
Right here on the chain that has REAL utility and purpose.
With the YouAreHOPE Foundation and The Alliance family community as it's shepherd.
@YouAreHOPE = Help, Opportunity, Purpose & Empowerment
