Issue two Editor's Note
I am so excited to bring you the long-awaited second issue of The Generosity Journal; the first of three issues we’ll be releasing in 2016.
Lots has been happening in the One Percent Collective world during the past year. We celebrated our 3rd birthday with The Black Seeds, The Nudge and hundreds of our supporters. We have six new partner charities you can support with your 1% and so far your donations have collectively helped us raise close to a quarter of a million dollars!
Our crew has expanded to a whopping two people, with Reuben Harcourt joining us as ‘Head of Digital’. While our day-to-day crew stays small, we are honoured to have the kind support of our Future 50, our sponsors, volunteers, mentors and businesses who all believe in the 1% ethos and support us to pass 100% of your donations on to our partner charities.
Taking care of our communities and this world is a responsibility we all must step up to. Getting to share the stories of individuals and organisations who have generosity and social responsibility at their core is truly an honour for me and for everyone involved in creating The Generosity Journal.
We hope you enjoy the publication and are inspired in some way to help us push the generosity movement here in Aotearoa.
