It’s So Easy, Even the Kids Are Doing It
Most high school students have spent their “coronacation” zooming with friends, binging tv shows, and lamenting the loss of their second semester, but not Husna. Rising high school senior Husna Farukhi created the organization Mercy 2 Humanity at the onset of the corona virus pandemic to create sanitary packs for people unable to quarantine. Mercy 2 Humanity has already donated over 2,000 sanitary packs, with no plans to slow down. In fact, the campaign has evolved to also assist the Black Lives Matter movement, as 25% of funds from the corona care packages are donated to the NAACP.
According to Husna, Givsum helped facilitate her campaign in several ways. Givsum allowed her to collect all of her donations, and the personalized dashboard, where organizations can manage all their operations, was a huge plus.

Husna’s goal, besides providing relief for front-line workers? To inspire her generation to become more involved in philanthropy by “creat[ing] a platform where giving back is cool and popular.” Watch the video interview below to hear more from Husna and find out how you can be a force for good!
