Seeking Organizational Partner
"You can’t change the world alone – you will need some help – and to truly get from your starting point to your destination takes friends, colleagues, the good will of strangers and a strong coxswain to guide them."
– William H. McRaven
It has been a long time since an HM update has been distributed. As the saying above notes, world change does not happen by one person alone, and while HM has wonderful members, I was not able to recruit a highly committed volunteer group to drive it. In 2018, I moved to Wisconsin from California for family business matters - and to start my own family. The business matters (and my son, now a toddler!) unfortunately soon took all my time and energy. My hope was to find strong partners here to start actualizing HM locally from the manufacturing hub of the USA. This hope remains yet I am extending the geographical zone to the world. With the pandemic showing the world how necessary local humanitarian production is...the time was and remains ripe for taking HM to the next stage. New leadership is needed to do this.
