Foundation Beyond Belief, a non-profit charitable foundation created to focus, encourage and demonstrate humanistic generosity, announced the winners of their ‘Heart of Humanism Awards’ on April 25th of 2018. The yearly awards recognize the outstanding community service of local groups who are part of the Beyond Belief Network (BBN) program, and who made extraordinary contributions to compassionate humanism.

HAPI Executive Secretary Jamie Del Rosario-Martinez was named the ‘Most Valuable Volunteer’ of 2017 for having been the most dedicated team member across all of BBN. Mark Richardson, a US-based member of the HAPI International Council, received the award on behalf of Jamie during the American Humanist Association’s 77th Annual Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada on the weekend of May 18th.

He is also active in administrative duties, taking charge of the HAPI merchandise like shirts, hats, scarves, and HAPI’s first book, “From Superstition to Reason”. He was a coordinator of the Asian Humanist Conference by the International Humanist & Ethical Youth Organization (IHEYO) in June 2017.
