Questions & Answers
What is ‘Make Humanity Great Again”?
‘Make Humanity Great Again’ is a rallying cry for a campaign to create a better, fairer and kinder world for everyone.
It’s not just a slogan on a hat, it’s a plea for greater tolerance, it’s a reaction against a certain kind of politics, it’s a clarion call for people everywhere to join together and fix things. Whether that’s through the actions of individuals, communities, corporations, countries or continents.
How can I get involved? What can I do to help?
Everyone can help ‘Make Humanity Great Again’ - whether it’s by running along on a treadmill and joining Eddie via Zoom; by performing small individual acts of kindness; or by joining together with neighbours to create stronger local communities, through engaging in politics and activism, or by donating money via Crowdfunder to help support charities that focus on creating a better and fairer world.
Eddie on A Run For Hope
"There is too much talk of division in the world. Too much talk designed to pull us apart.
In my life I try to look for the opposite - to look for what brings us together, which helps make us all stronger. Working together feeds the spirit that can restore the greatness to humanity.
‘Make Humanity Great Again’ stands for unity, the sharing of beliefs and the power of human beings uniting across the continents and around the world.
As a campaign it seeks to promote a fair chance in life for all, particularly those who experience disadvantage and discrimination.
It speaks to people who believe there is more goodwill than ill-will in the world, who believe in the positive qualities of humanity and in the Golden Rule - to treat other people the way you would like to be treated yourself.
This is a time to look forward, to work together, to be tolerant and to live and let live.
Which is why, when hope in the real world seems far away, that I begin this run in our locked-down world.
I will attempt to run (on a treadmill) 31 marathons, and then perform 31 stand-up shows, in 31 days, in 31 virtual cities from across Europe and around the world - to raise money to give to charities that Make Humanity Great.
