Julian Omidi co-founded Civic Duty with his brother Michael Omidi, M.D. to shine a light on modern day heroes who aim to do good and inspire others to do the same. They may be supporting their community by cleaning up the neighborhood streets, helping at a nearby shelter, or volunteering with a local citizen group. Their involvements might support national or global efforts against poverty, improved healthcare, or hunger. It may even be part of their chosen profession with law enforcement, politics, or public service. The key here is that these folks distinguish themselves by exhibiting just a little more caring and compassion for those in need.
“The human need present in today’s world is varied and vast and it is easy to be overwhelmed by it all,” says Julian Omidi. “It is important to also recognize and celebrate the many kindnesses and the large scale campaigns that remind us we are all interconnected and dependent on one another. Civic Duty will spotlight both the individual and corporate humanitarian efforts that demonstrate that connectedness and enrich all of our lives.”
Through Civic Duty, the Omidi brothers aim to encourage values-based behavior and a life style that includes humanitarian pursuits and focuses on the well-being of others.
