Episode #4 - Live a Life Lifting Others Up, with Shane O'Rourke

Welcome to this new Kind Conversation with Shane O'Rourke from 'We Lift Up' - a movement of Lifters transforming lives around the world, where every penny directly funds tangible projects. It's so hard to select the best bits from this conversation as there were so many! We talk about...
- The story behind the birth of 'We Lift Up' - how a young boy from Haiti made such an impact on Shane that it has changed not only his life but thousands of others so far.
- How important it is to educate people about the needs of others around the world. And in a way where people feel they have the ability to make a difference, by making it easy for them to donate to tangible projects and see the impact they make.
- How the team select projects to undertake and the amazing projects that they are currently working on.
- The way 'We Lift Up' are enabling and empowering communities by giving them the skills and resources which directly stimulate their local economy.
- How 'We Lift Up' manage the model of sending 100% of donations directly to the projects and how they have developed innovative funding ideas to fund the running of the charity by giving companies, and their employees, the opportunity to create an impact.
- Shane as a leader and the team of 13 unbelievable volunteers who have helped make the first year of this charity so successful. They truly are like the Avengers!
- Shane's drive for kindness and how he came to live such a purposeful life!
- How when you're working towards something that feels so right, everything seems to flow. That's not to say it's not hard work, but it's easier to stay motivated when you know you're on the right path.
