We Are A Team Of Passionate Volunteers Who Want To Help Make A Difference
We at the Humanity Preservation Foundation (HPF) are dedicated and committed to the prevention and education of Child Abuse (physical/sexual) Domestic Violence, and Bullying so that those that have been victimized can heal and those that have not can be protected. HPF Picture The human race is our greatest natural resource (and has been for centuries) yet, how much value do we actually place on humanity? It is a tough question with a wide spectrum of inhumanity that we all face every single day. We view inhumanity as acts that are cast upon persons, by other people. It ranges from acts of abuse, both physical and sexual, bullying, discrimination, and has no boundaries when it comes to sex, race, age, or economic status. In its simplest form, an act of humanity can be determined when an individual has a choice between hurting another person or refraining from such an act for the betterment of mankind. HPF is a newly formed not for profit organization focused on a common effort of preserving humanity. Its strength comes from the individuals working within the foundation and most especially with its partners, sponsors, and donors. It is with this mindset that HPF will serve as a navigator to individuals that are in need of assistance. In a vast world of resources, HPF will be there to provide guidance to a resource that is best suited to an individual that is in crisis. That person can then focus on their healing rather than expelling energy just trying to find the best possible solution, a taxing task similar to finding a needle in haystack. HPF is also in support of efforts that relate to the education on how to prevent inhumanity from happening. This effort captures audiences that range from school age to retirement age and greatly focuses on the education of children. Every person comes into the world with the right to living in a humane society. When that right has been stripped away, it then becomes necessary to make an attempt to restore it and the Humanity Preservation Foundation will be there to contribute to the effort. These groups will be housed and supported under one roof, the HPF Resource Center. The HPF Resource Center will be an ever-evolving tool, starting as the website and eventually growing into a physical location. We will also initiate our HPF Scorecard which will be divided into two categories; Organizations/Institutions and Entertainment/Gaming it has been establish to provide a rating system that allows the general public to gauge the efforts and measures of these two critical areas that touch the lives of children, families and loved ones every day. We will implement the basic proposition; keep it simple, consistent, and current utilizing the backgrounds and skill sets of its members to provide the most effective methods of marketing to raise funds through promotions and grants. Then utilize said funding to provide premium advocacy efforts in the most comprehensive forums via in-person and social media platforms.
