G'day all,

 

Tanto Security is super excited to join and be a part of the pledge 1%. We are a new cyber security consultancy and hope that other more established companies in our industry will follow and find more ways to give back to the community.  Having come from organisations where social impact can sometimes seem it was just added on we wanted to ensure it was central to what we do from the start. So this is the very beginning for us and we look forward to following the lead of some of the great people within this group. 

 

The causes that I am most passionate about and look forward to supporting are related to mental health and providing opportunities to others to get involved in cyber security. 

 

I look forward to reading more about what everyone is doing!

Solution Consultant,Bolt Data Consulting Group

Hi everyone!

 

Bolt Data, a Spoke AIoT company, just marked the start of our journey with Pledge1% and we are very excited about what lies ahead. We are a Salesforce Partner that specializes in designing and implementing solutions to help companies deliver service to their customers efficiently and effectively. 

 

The employees and the leaders at Bolt Data are natural givers and over the years they've created a culture of learning and helping that stems entirely from each individual's core values. I've only been with them for a short time, but they are an incredible group of people. Once I heard about Pledge1% I knew it would be a natural fit for the company. It seems like the perfect way to come together to make the greatest impact. 

 

As this is the very start of our collective effort to make as big an impact as we can, I'm looking for ideas and look forward to hearing how others have implemented successful company-wide charitable events. 

 

My best to everyone,

Lela VanLoon (pronounced Layla, like the song;)

Hi everyone this is Max, greetings from Sydney, Australia!

 

With the team at Inauro we are super happy to join this group of like-minded professionals. We are frim believers in the impact that technology can have on people far and wide and have been working on applying our tech for good.

 

We have been working with the team at Heart of the Nation for the last year or so - HoTN is an Australian charity set up by a famous Australian artist that recently suffered a near-fatal cardiac arrest. He was luckily saved by the presence of a defibrillator close by, and the quick response of a nurse at his show.

Since this event, Greg has been working tirelessly to educate people about the chain of survival and the use of AEDs.

 

Recently, Greg has started a new project, a mobile application that helps find the nearest AED to you, call the emergencies, and very recently enable volunteers to assist in the response. This application has been built by one of our partners, and our data platform holds all the information regarding the AEDs, fixed and mobile, as well as tracks and monitors their use and servicing to ensure they are always ready to go in time of need.

 

We're excited that this project has come to fruition for Greg and his team - it's an app everyone needs in there back pocket!

 

We look forward to engaging with this awesome community!

Max

The Forest
Adventurer

Hello,

My name is Steven and I have been working on the communications and engagement side of climate action for nearly 20 years. For the past 14 years I have been running my own design company focused on endorsing social, environmental and educational initiatives – I truly see graphic design is a potent tool of communication. It should inspire and enhance quality of life, not just be used as a means for encouraging more consumption.

Encouraged by the likes of the First Things First Manifesto and Do Good Design, I strive to be aware of how I work, for whom I work, and how my work affects others.

I'm the National Sustainability Chair of the Society of Graphic Designers of Canada, an active participant in numerous community volunteer initiatives, (like the West Kootenay Climate Hub) and the Project Lead / Co-Facilitator of the Nest Lab, a social innovation lab for collaborative climate solutions.

 

I look forward to being a member of the 1% community.

I just joined a week ago and am excited to be here! I've wanted to join for a while but wasn't exactly sure if I could if I wasn't an organization. Well I started my consulting firm last year and as a Salesforce Partner I knew it was the right time. I can't wait to serve nonprofits with Salesforce support!

 

I worked for a nonprofit back in 2012 and loved it and learned a lot! I continued to volunteer here and there offering support with Salesforce or doing food drives through different organizations I worked with. Getting out to events is a challenge for me so I'm excited to offer my skills through technology! I've been working in the Salesforce ecosystem since 2007 and hope to use my skills to help others.

Menokela
Adventurer
Founder/CEO

Rose,

Really excited to be here at Pledge 1% and how the community here evolves and helps one another to have a greater impact.

 

As a child I watched my brother, die when my parents could note afford to travel to city hospitals and there was no doctor at the local hospital to save his life. Years later, I lost my first patient in professional practice who dies because she never had any routine pregnancy care or  tests throughout her pregnancy because she could not afford one until it was too late. She was brought to the hospital in an emergency and died before we could offer any help.

 

Till date, hundreds still die from avoidable health conditions for same reasons, accessibility and costs. The legacy of these deaths inspired me to find a solution to this gap in healthcare delivery. which is one of the major problem in Nigeria and the major sub-Saharan Africa especially among low and middle income populations.

 

Today, I'm the founder and CEO at SonoCare Healthcare, Inc., a health technology company fostering equitable access to quality and socially inclusive healthcare for  underserved and unserved groups in across rural and urban boundaries. I started out as a mobile diagnostics solution, driving to rural villages across Nigeria with portable equipment to deliver free pregnancy screenings for indigent pregnant women and girls who ordinarily would not be able to afford them.  To scale the impact, we opened our hospital where we refer at-risk patients for specialized care at subsidized costs. 

 

The COVID-19 pandemic brought about a new addition to SonoCare as we developed our new telemedicine platform that connects patients instantly to medical care care both online and offline. Our telemedicine mobile app connects patients instantly to doctors and nurses as well as at-home lab testing, drug deliveries and emergency ambulance response through our partnerships with local healthcare providers and professionals.

 

With SonoCare, we are driving change and transforming  healthcare delivery for under-served and previously excluded groups in hard-to-reach populations, improving healthcare outcomes and creating job opportunities for unemployed and under-employed young people.

 

Feel free to reach me out and we can explore opportunities to work together.

Big welcome Menokela!

A truly purposeful organisation.

Reading kept in the back of my mind this: https://biomimicry.org/inspired-by-the-water-bear/ worth building connections with both organisations as can be a great boost not only in manufacturing but also distribution.

Thanks for sharing Menokela. Sad to hear about your brother and first patient, but it's inspiring to hear that you used that suffering to motivate you to create SonoCare Healthcare. An amazing journey!

Hi Rose,

A great discovery for Cobra is the pledge 1% community. At the beginning of the year, we joined a local organisation that helps the community of our municipality to fight poverty, but also to increase well-being. Every day at the office and behind your PC gives you too limited a view of the world where people at the bottom of the social ladder have a hard time.

Cobra does not pursue profit maximisation and finds happiness most important, and time is scarce for this. That is why we spent 1% of all our hours last year on VTO. Thank you for the beautiful playbook that has been made.

 

Hope to share a lot of succes story. Regards Vincent Revenboer - CEO - Cobra CRM
