The founder & visionary behind One Kind Act
Growing up I always saw my father collecting varying amounts of money in envelopes, I asked what he was doing - he said trying to make a small difference. From that day it was my mission to follow in his footsteps and with my fellow trustees my dream has come true. The power of the mind, a determination to make even a small difference and having friends willing to support and encourage me has brought me to this valued place.
The enthusiasm behind One Kind Act
William John Bennett said; A kind and compassionate act is often its own reward. I certainly have found that to be true. Through my recent work as a Samaritan listening volunteer I have been privileged to share the thoughts of strangers ... whilst providing support and a listening ear I too have changed and gained a further passion for helping my fellow human beings. I am excited by this opportunity to make a difference.
The brains & finance man behind One Kind Act
Enjoying life to the full, participating in sports, leisure, travel and work. Family man and a firm believer in the old adage ‘Work Hard, Play Hard’ . One Kind Act provides me the opportunity to help those who are facing more serious challenges. A small way to give something back to society, and I encourage you to do the same, in whatever way works for you.
The intuition & efficiency behind One Kind Act
One Kind Act - the three words speak for themselves and capture one simple human sentiment - compassion. How easily we take aspects of our lives such as opportunity and good health so much for granted and forget to feel compassion for whom these privileges are lacking. I now see it’s time for me to reach out. What better way to fulfil my wishes than to be a Trustee of a charity that has such passion and energy to do good in this world.
Money Collector for One Kind Act
I always knew that once my children were older I wanted to do some kind of charity work and be able to give back. One Kind Act gave me an opportunity to do more than I ever expected and I feel very privileged to be a part of such a wonderful charity. People often say ‘it’s so good what you do’ honestly, I think I am extremely lucky to be in a position to be able to help those less fortunate than me.
Corporate Strategist behind One Kind Act
I'm not ashamed to say that my reasons for working with OKA are at least somewhat selfishly motivated. Many of you will surely have heard the message that the Dalai Lama once conveyed, the origins of which probably predate him: "Happiness is not something ready-made. It comes from your own actions." By working with the wonderful people behind OKA I hope to feed my own drivers for happiness but at the same time contribute to their laudable efforts to redress some of the inequalities that exist in our world and make meaningful differences to lives around the globe.
