One World, One Humanity is a charitable organization founded by Jimmy Chan in honour of his friend, Tom Chan, who was an Olympic Weightlifter who represented Montreal. Tom Chan helped many of the youth achieve their dreams and was a huge role model for Jimmy.Tom Chan was a very generous man and followed a philosophy of hard work and service to others, as he always helped those who were in need. Jimmy founded the One World, One Humanity Humanitarian Mission to continue Tom Chan’s legacy, by creating events to raise funds to send food, water and supplies to victims of global disasters, as well as contributing to the community and to help feed the homeless.
In 2008, Jimmy organized an event to raise funds for the victims of the Sichuan earthquake in China. With the help of several performers and communities all over Montreal, Jimmy managed to raise over $10,000.00 for the Red Cross to aid the victims of the Sichuan disaster.
In 2010, Jimmy organized an event to raise funds for the victims of the Haiti Earthquake. Jimmy’s event raised over $25,000 for the Haiti Relief!
