The SOLD Project family is growing! Over the next several weeks, we’ll be introducing you to the newest additions to our family. Today, we’d like you to meet Bobby Bailey, who has recently joined our Board of Directors.
Bobby Bailey is no stranger to the world of aid work. A talented filmmaker and photographer, he co-founded Invisible Children (IC), which you might remember produced a video that went viral, drawing worldwide attention, in 2012, to the abuses of Kony and the LRA in Uganda. In co-founding the not-for-profit Invisible Children, Bailey sought to create an ideological shift of engagement for millennials in the west and tangible transformation for children in East Africa. He hinged his vision on inspiring gen. y through media, campaigns, and events to positively shift both their influence and purpose towards the greater world. Bobby went on to co-found the USA GLOBAL POVERTY PROJECT, which seeks to acquire funds from governments and large foundations to fulfill the Millennium Development Goals. In traveling to Thailand with The SOLD Project, Bobby fell in love with the people and the mission of the organization. He realized how valuable prevention is to protecting innocence and shaping lives, and he is overjoyed to join SOLD’s board and work together for the protection of vulnerable people.
“Having Bobby on the Board will bring a wealth of experience, insight, and energy. Bobby has a passion for helping children and he’s proven he’ll take chances to bring positive change to the world. We are honored to have him join SOLD.” – Roy Goble, Chairman
