i-Marbella.com proudly presents an exclusive interview with Ms Maria Bravo, one of the founders of The Global Gift Foundation.
1. What are the basic principles of The Global Gift Foundation?
The principles of our foundation are to help those in need without any discrimination in terms of religion, race, sex, or political believes.
To put personal development as well as women's and children's rights first.
Be honourable and transparent in anything we do.
Create awareness of social responsibility.
Be a good person at home.
Never underestimate the force of passion.
2. Today, transparency in charity donations is a relevant issue. What is your opinion on the problem?
Transparency is crucial in today's charity work as, unfortunately, we had people and organisations that manipulated or took advantage of the kindness of donors or people with good intentions. Corruption is already present within all sectors of our society, however, we keep our faith in those who dedicate their lives to help others. In terms of the transparency of our organisation, we do our best for people of goodwill to be able to join us. Miracles can happen with the union of passion and excellent work.
3. Would you like to see The Global Gift Foundation take more risks? If yes, what does taking more risks mean to your organisation?
We take risk on a daily basis as charities walk a tightrope, depending on generosity of others. Such circumstances are beyond our control. When we see all the people in need, not being able to satisfy their needs, this is the main spring that motivates us every day to surpass ourselves and to work with great passion more than ever.
4. Could you please tell me about your most successful charity campaign?
I would have to say that the most successful campaign so far has been the galas hosted in 7 different countries, bringing funds to local and international foundations
by uniting celebrities and socially responsible brands for conscientious people to support the foundations. At the same time, we are creating GLOBAL awareness that we are all ONE. ONE is ALL.
5. In your opinion, what are the most effective ways to raise funds?
I will say, brands supporting a good cause and always having a name attached to them.
6. You have lived in many countries. Which is the most generous in terms of charity?
Without any doubt, North America! People are aware that they have a responsibility to give something back. Also, the way the government is established encourages people to give.
