Pledge 1%: “When it comes to social impact, what inspires you?”
Harry-NJ: “I am most inspired by the 'impact' part of social impact. I actively look for efforts which will have a measurable impact on identifiable needs.”
Pledge 1%: “Can you share some insight about your willingness to help develop the Pledge 1% Community by serving as an Early Adopter of the community platform?”
Harry-NJ: “My company, SeaFreight Labs, is a small consultancy whose direct impact is limited by its size. The Pledge 1% community provides a way to amplify our efforts by attracting other like-minded people. In this way, my little company can have an outsize impact and help many more people.”
Pledge 1%: “Can you share your thoughts on the benefits of being a part of the Pledge 1% Community?”
Harry-NJ: “It is difficult to know how to be efficient and effective with one's philanthropic efforts. Learning by trial and error takes a long time and wastes resources. It is MUCH better to leverage the learnings of thousands of like-minded people and greatly improve your odds of achieving your social-impact objectives. So, join the Pledge-1% community!”
Pledge 1%: “Anything else you would like to share?”
Harry-NJ: “Leadership in business can sometimes feel lonely, especially when there are difficult decisions or uncertain outcomes. Taking the 1% Pledge provides a proven framework to orient your business and provide a safe anchor for decision-making. Joining the Pledge-1% community provides an opportunity to find people in your same industry with whom you can build a relationship and amplify your impact within your industry or on the problems you decide to address. Don't delay! Take an action step to help yourself, your company and your community in 2022!”
