Jason Hope believes in giving back. A lifelong resident of Arizona, he is always looking for ways to give back to his community. He is quoted as saying, “It is not about donations, it is about getting involved.” A futurist, philanthropist, investor, and entrepreneur, he is currently implementing a new way of easing the complications and illnesses with growing old.
Though his work with the SENS Foundation, he is hoping to help give people a a longer and better quality of life as they go through the aging process. His motto is, “We all want to live long and healthy lives.” His philosophy is not about treating the diseases that come with growing old (ex, Alzheimer’s, heart and lung disease) but putting the focus on improving their quality of life and therefore prevent these health problems from coming up.
Jason Hope uses his interest in technology alongside his work with the SENS Foundation. He has developed mobile apps, desktop and gaming software, and communication and technology devices that assist with communication and provide enjoyment and comfort to daily life. His mind is continuous working and he brings these ideas to businesses and individuals and points them in the right direction and they brainstorm their ideas to perfection.
First, think about what you are most passionate about and what is most meaningful to you, then find the organizations that fits with those beliefs. Second, decide whether you want to make a difference right in your own community, and if not, where might you like your services to be utilizes. Third, ask for suggestions from family, friends, and people who know you well. Possibly they may be able to see (mores than you) what your gifts are.
