Fossil Unbound: Collaborating With Social Problem Solvers To Change Young Lives Worldwide
by Sangeeta Haindl
Fossil Unbound is an organisation that is creating tumbleweeds of change by supporting projects that are nurturing and inspiring children. It strongly believes the best social entrepreneurs aren’t just changing the world, they’re changing the way we change the world. It has an affinity for collaborating with social problem solvers who are devoted to supporting young people and also likes taking on big ideas. As result, Fossil Unbound is supporting a variety of powerful international projects in very diverse and unique ways.
One partnership is with Half the Sky, which is working with China’s orphanages through an innovative, child-centred approach. Half the Sky focuses on nurturing the ‘whole child’ through physical, intellectual and moral growth, ultimately transforming institutional care, and has already changed the lives of 122,338 children. This is a collaboration where Fossil Unbound not only invests time and resources, but also participates in the action. Many Fossil executives and employees in Hong Kong and China have directly engaged with the organisation, by assisting with fundraising events or visiting orphanages where Half the Sky has established children centres.
