How Foundations in New Year Can Bring Relief and Empowerment to Countries in Need

The start of 2021 has rung in an invigorated level of hope. The fresh year will be full of certain challenges, but the world is now more prepared. Knowing where to turn will be key to bringing forth prosperity. To truly help those in need it will be vital to rely on sources that go beyond the limited power of many governments. It will take private sectors and established organizations to step up and fight the good fight.

The generous spirit of individuals leading the way is an ultimate blessing. People like Michael Capponi are the true heroes of America who will help rescue us in the months to come. As the Founding CEO of Global Empowerment Mission, he is more than just a man in charge of a foundation. He is a human being making the world a better place for all that inhabit it.

The organization he leads has the ability to immediately respond to all phases of global disasters. By harnessing the power of social media, celebrity influencers, strategic public-private partnerships and a strong, knowledgeable base of experienced volunteers, Capponi has created a replicable formula to have an efficient and effective response to global disasters. The compassionate businessman has transformed tens of thousands of lives and there will be thousands of more who will benefit because of the drive he has to promote harmony on the planet. Why there are not more people like this baffles the mind. A natural instinct to want to help those in need should be seamless, but far too often mankind has to battle selfish behavior.

Luckily, here is a foundation and an example of an individual that only wants to give. GEM has supported missions in 28 countries, all 50 US states, and territories including the Caribbean. The organization’s complete full response results in having a long-lasting institutional impact.

Grassroots community engagement is key to survival right now. For two decades, the team has assisted in over 284 missions around the world since the 1999 Kosovo Crisis, the earthquake in Haiti in 2010 to the current 2020 pandemic. One big focus now of the organization and its dedicated board members is on home and school rebuilds.

The planet needs instrumental work like this on a daily basis. It makes one really question how worse things could be if it were not for foundations like this stepping in when governments alone cannot do enough. It will take more than prayers. It will take more than donations. It needs heartfelt drive like what is seen in GEM. The world needs this love.
