In America we’re experiencing an epidemic of being unloved, unwanted, uncared for, neglected and ignored. Even in a nation known for abundance, we have millions of people deprived of basic necessities. There is no more time for apathy. Today you’ll make a choice.
Insight Projects Inc. is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that began in 2010 as a 50 state/50 week road trip to host food drives in all 50 states and blossomed into a national outreach in which a team of volunteers distributes food items, toiletries, clothing and other necessities in all 50 states and in the UK.
Our distinctive approach to addressing American poverty is dependent on building relationships and connecting the people with the resources to the people who need them. Insight Projects Inc. does not pay any salaries, and all positions are voluntary. There are 4 volunteers currently living, working and sleeping in vehicles across America and in the UK, without consistent access to running water, privacy or bathrooms and without an expense account for personal use. Financial donations are measured toward immediate vehicle maintenance and upkeep, vehicle insurance and communication expenses, and the purchase of goods and services for individuals and organizations in need.
Since it’s inception in 2009, the Project has evolved into a mobile clothing closet, food pantry, and outreach team, providing everything from free haircuts, meals, a few nights indoors, showers, phone calls and transportation, to clean clothes, camping gear, and hygiene supplies. With gratitude for the people across the US that have contributed to these efforts, the project just celebrated it’s 2nd birthday! You can learn more about our adventures and contributions by visiting the Project Blogs.
The philosophic goal of this Project and this company is to alleviate the strain of poverty, encourage the majority population toward considerate and thoughtful action, reconcile communities, build long lasting relationships, and demonstrate Love.
We will accomplish these objectives by living outside the confines of four walls, targeting specific and immediate needs, discovering and connecting a nation full of people who Love to give and get involved, and by giving away one year of our lives, one week at a time, in all 50 United States.
