My name is Michael Robison. I serve as the President of Food For Orphans (an international charity that provides millions of meals to children in over 25 countries worldwide) and the Founder/CEO of Velocity Collective and Investing Hope International (which gives daily to charities around the world through philanthropic efforts) and finally I work as needed as a Cultural Enterprise Integrations Consultant working with some of the countries best start-ups and most recognized brands.
My passion is seeing people with great visions discover the true success that is within them. The key is helping people discover hope. I help people, teams and organizations unlock their real identity. Seeking to be authentic, genuine and joyful in their approach to making passions and visions become realityl.
I find my greatest fulfillment in seeing good ideas become great and great ideas impact the world.
I have had the honor of working with organizations who are impacting the social landscape of the United States, Africa, The Caribbean, Europe, The Middle East and beyond. My clients have included Startups and Fortune 500 companies ranging in revenue from $0 to over $12B annually. My background in sales, development, marketing, communications and staffing bring a diverse understanding of both business and non-profit development.
On a personal note, I have an absolutely amazing family. It is likely one of the most uncommon realities in my entire life.
My wife, Allison, and I have tons of incredible kids. Jessica is 26, she was our first adopted kiddo, and she is a mom to 2 beautiful little girls and now lives in North Carolina. Shay is one of our miracles stories.... Not enough time or space to share. She is not living in Fayetteville, NC and she is a constant reminder of grace and beauty in our lives. Evan is 11, and a redhead in every sense! Noah is 10 and a sports freak even at such a young age. Kaia is 7, and our drama queen addition from Ethiopia! Karis is 6 and our newest addition; from Haiti. And finally.... Judah is 3 years old and one amazingly cute dude!
Together our passion is generosity... My goal in the coming years is to achieve the ability to give away more than 90% of my income in order to make a difference.... One life at a time.
My personal passion is to serve children, families and communities across the globe who are hurting, forgotten and lonely. I want to reveal the beauty in the most unlikely places. My life's mission is to help you discover true and meaningful life. More than anything, I want to see Hope reborn. I want to see the despair of life transformed into the Hope of a better tomorrow.
Anyone who knows me knows that I love great (thumping) music, my piano, tattoos, photography, exploring, traveling the world and writing. One of my greatest passions in life is Haiti. I have been serving there and loving that country for almost 14 years! My family and I have decided the only way to vacation is on a cruise ship, Disney Cruises to be exact! I love reading the classical favorites and great modern biographies. And... I am a classically trained musician and composer. I love having my hands in every aspect of life, art, creativity and more!
