I, Julian Omidi, have formed a non-profit organization with my brother Michael Omidi in order to combat poverty across the United States and around the globe. No More Poverty is an agency that partners with other like-minded charitable organizations to further their efforts.
No More Poverty takes advantage of the social media revolution to help us solicit suggestions for organizations you feel are worthy of our support. Charities you suggest will be featured as a Charity of the Week on our Facebook page. Part of this campaign includes direct donations to these featured charities for every “Like” that the NMP.org Facebook page receives.
The purpose of this campaign is to get you involved in philanthropy in an interactive way; you will be doing more than just making a financial donation, you will be a valuable part in an effort to end poverty around the world.
Some of the charities that we have supported so far have come as direct suggestions from the worldwide community, people just like you:
- Portland Hoop Kings – A basketball program that teaches not only the fundamentals of the game but the fundamentals of life as well to inner city youth.
- Pacifica Resource Center – A community program that aids residents in Pacifica, CA with food, shelter and housing, and financial programs.
- Simone’s Kids – This organization helps children in Uganda, but their biggest effort currently is their goal to build a new school and community to provide education to over 300 children.
Getting involved with philanthropy is one of the most rewarding things I have ever done and I encourage you to do the same by getting involved with No More Poverty.
