Dear reader,

The Corona crisis is still gripping the world at the time of writing. Millions of people face the loss of loved ones and numerous economies, businesses and organizations are severely affected financially. The Corona crisis is also having an impact on the Green Cross organization in the Netherlands. We continue to work from home with a smaller team.

The number of Dutch participants in the SfA project expects Green Cross to increase in 2021 to at least 300 participants. For some of the current Dutch participants in the SfA platform, visit: https://www.gcnl.nl/sfa-sprekers/

A number of foreign Green Cross departments are now examining which speakers can be approached this year to participate in the SfA platform.

The development of the new SfA site has not yet been realized. We would now like to inform you that a beautiful SfA booking site had now been realized. Unfortunately, no donation has been made via the GlobalGiving platform in the last period. As a result, we could not yet order realization. At the end of 2020, Green Cross Netherlands therefore entered into talks with the special organization Generous Minds (www.generous-minds.com) to get the SfA site realized. With the help of GM, Green Cross Netherlands now expects to quickly obtain the necessary financing and to be able to realize the new SfA site.

The urgency to make fundamental changes to our economic and financial systems is increasing, but also more visible. Numerous reports in the media increasingly show this. The American division of Green Cross (Global Green) has recently revamped its site and it clearly shows on its main page that we are running out of time. See: https://www.globalgreen.org/
All the more reason to make the SfA platform a great success!

Please keep following us! (and your donations are still more than welcome).

We wish everyone a lot of strength in this difficult period for many.

Dear reader,

The Speakers for Awareness project was one of the participants in the recently held GlobalGiving bonus week, where a 50% surcharge was given on donations.

Despite the great commitment of our organization for this sympathetic action of GlobalGiving, in which cooperation was provided by other Dutch NGOs such as Wakibi (www.wakibi.nl) and Economy Transformers Academy (www.economytransformers.nl/academy) who have informed their own supporters and donors (more than 10,000 people) by email about the Speakers for Awareness project and the bonus week of GlobalGiving, all these efforts unfortunately hardly led to donations.

We believe that the reluctance to make a donation stems from the financial difficulties many people are currently facing due to the Corona crisis. We also regret that the most common form of payment in the Netherlands on the internet, IDEAL, is not offered by GlobalGiving. We have investigated this, and for many people this also forms a barrier that causes people to refrain from making a donation.

Because the amount that has been raised for the Speakers for Awareness project to date is not sufficient to build the necessary booking site, Foundation Green Cross Netherlands is now focusing on approaching and writing the upcomming months to financially successful high net worth Dutch people.

We would like to conclude this short report positively by stating that the number of Dutch (top) speakers who have registered to participate in the ideal Speakers platform 'Speakers for Awareness' is growing every month. We expect to have more than 100 Dutch participants around the turn of the year.

These SfA participants believe in the necessity and strength of the SfA platform and together represent a goodwill of E 750,000 for IMPACT projects!

The top speakers of Speakers for Awareness.
The Speakers for Awareness project of Green Cross Netherlands has now started. As of May 2020, more than 50 speakers have already joined SfA. Green Cross Netherlands expects to have about 100 participating speakers in the month September, and around 150 participating Dutch speakers at the turn of the year.

Expansion with speakers from other countries.
Several Green Cross departments worldwide (including Green Cross USA / Global Green - https://www.globalgreen.org/) have now pledged to support this special project and to deliver top speakers. Because not enough funding has yet been realized to be able to build a professional multilingual speaker site for SfA, it was decided to temporarily include the speakers who are now affiliated with the Green Cross Netherlands site. (see: https://www.gcnl.nl/sfa-sprekers/). These presentations will also be added to the Green Cross site in June 2020 in English.

Projects financially supported by the speakers of SfA.
SfA strengthens itself by looking for connections with other NGOs that are allowed to deliver IMPACT projects, which are supported financially by the SfA-speakers. In return, these NGOs publicize the ideal SfA speaker platform within their own network and supporters of donors. These IMPACT projects can also be found on the Green Cross Netherlands site for the time being. (see: https://www.gcnl.nl/sfa-impactprojecten/). The IMPACT projects will also be added to the Green Cross site in June 2020 in English.

SfA logo.
Speakers for Awareness uses the Phoenix as its logo since April 2020. In Greek mythology, the Phoenix symbolizes immortality and rebirth. The expression “When a phoenix rises from the ashes” is used to indicate that something or someone is blossoming, after having first completely broken down. The spoken word is seen by Speakers for Awareness as “the source from which new thoughts and ideas can arise,” while people with new insights and knowledge can come to wisdom. These newly acquired insights are an absolute precondition for raising humanity as a whole to a higher level of existence, with which our world with all the life that arises therefrom has a greater chance of a peaceful future.

50th anniversary Earth Day.
Earth Day celebrates its 50th anniversary this year 2020. At the request of sustainability event EarthX2020 in Dallas / USA, Speakers for Awareness has asked some of its participating speakers to participate in a special video in which the speakers express their hope for a world in which more people are committed to achieving peace and justice. and sustainable societies.
This video of about 3.5 minutes can be viewed here: https://www.gcnl.nl/en/50th-anniversary-earth-day-2020/

Expectation and follow-up.
Speakers for Awareness assumes that there will be enough donations in the coming months to build a professional multilingual international speaker site. Among others by new donations via the GlobalGiving site, but also through new collaborations with other NGOs.

The Corona crisis.
Due to the Corona crisis, events, conferences and symposia no longer take place in the Netherlands. For that reason, no speakers have been booked since March. However, SfA expects that applications will come in from September, SfA-speakers will receive assignments, and that money for IMPACT projects will be realized. Wonderful when the multilingual Speakers for Awareness site will be ready by then! So, donations for the SfA-project are therefor very welcome !

Clients, and promotion of SfA.
An earlier survey conducted by companies and governments that regularly organize congresses and symposia has shown that, without exception, the SfA speaker platform is preferred over commercial speaker agencies! Furthermore, these clients expressed their interest in helping to raise awareness of the SfA speaker platform in their program booklets and announcements of their events. IMPACT projects supported by the speakers they have booked will also receive additional attention in program booklets and announcements.Companies and government institutions are very happy to participate in this. The reason is that the attention they ask for the SfA-platform, the IMPACT projects, and for the speaker(s) who donates his/their entire fee to this IMPACT project, also benefits their own image.
Due to this free promotion of SfA, its speakers and IMPACT projects by these clients, SfA itself does not have to incur any promotional costs.

Temporary informative site.
Until the realization and delivery of a multilingual international Speakers for Awareness site, all information about the SfA project of Green Cross Netherlands can be found at: https://speakersforawareness.org/en/

Dear donor,

Here's just a quick message to let you know that the fundraising for SfA is still in progress. We are currently exploring other platforms as well, which offer the advantage of making donations by iDEAL. We will keep you updated, of course.

Also, we are engaging in new and exciting partnerships to get our project off the ground. More news on this to follow in the new year.

Thanks again for your support! If you feel like giving extra during the holiday season, please visit our project page to make an additional donation. Or forward this message to someone you know who might like to donate.

Dear donor,

I am very pleased to be able to share with you that by now over €5.500,- has been donated to our project through GlobalGiving. And with matching bonuses and donations that came through other channels, we are now almost halfway to our goal of €15.000,- 

For us, as a pioneering NGO, it's really great to receive and feel the support of many others. We feel confident that we'll be able to raise the minimum of €12.000,- to get started with building the brand and website. 

At the moment I'd like to keep it at saying that we are working hard to get the funds together to launch the Speakers for Awareness platform. We are contracting several speakers each week so the project behind the screens is growing rapidly.

Thanks again for your wonderful support! If you feel like giving extra support, please visit our project page to make an additional donation. Or forward this message to a relation who might like to donate.

Kind regards, on behalf of Green Cross Netherlands,

Mick Janssen
