More About Our Mission as a Non-Profit

Our mission is to encourage, inspire, and assist people from all over the world with the writing of their auto-biographies and biographies of their loved ones, as well as to read and learn from each other’s life-stories, both living and dead, famous or non-famous.

We do this with the hope of spreading compassion, understanding, empathy, and a much needed sense of unity in diversity, all across the globe.

Since the dawn of our civilization, world history has been dominated by warfare, hate, famine, poverty, as well as other atrocities and social injustices. Sadly, millions of people from the past didn’t get the opportunity to write their life-stories, and unfortunately this continues to this very day. Today, billions of people still stand without having written their auto-biography, i.e., the story of their lives.

We at The B.I.O. firmly believe this to be an unacknowledged tragedy of human history that has been almost completely ignored for far too long. It is our goal to do our part to help rectify this great historical misfortune, one person at a time; one life-story at a time. After all, history is about people, and should be written by people, for people, no matter who they are, or where they come from, or what they believe. Every single person, regardless of race, creed, gender, sexual and/or political orientation, has the right to have their life story written, without reserve, as they see it. And despite what history has traditional taught us, you don’t have to be famous or infamous to be the subject of biography. Everyone, equally, shares in the exact same right.

Ever since the time of the Ancient Greeks, historians have been primarily known for focusing their research and writing about war and conquerors. Herodotus, who’s considered to be the “Father of History,” wrote about the causes of war between the Persians and the Greeks. Plutarch, probably the world’s first modern biographer, wrote about the achievements of great statesmen and politicians, such as Julius Caesar and Alexander the Great. This is not to say that these individuals, much like nations at war, or great artists, don’t deserve historical attention or recognition, but history is supposed to be about all people, not just about those in power.

We, at The Biography International Organization, want to literally change the narrative. After all, history would be far less interesting without people, and it is through the telling of our life-stories that we feel connected and not alone in the world. From our oral storytelling traditions, to Homer’s epic poems about the Trojan War, to novels, movies, and social media, it is through the art of story-telling that we make sense of our world and how we make sense of ourselves, but we still have a lot more work to do. We must continue to challenge the very art of storytelling, because if we do, we essentially challenge ourselves.

And as we continue to become more of an open and historically conscious society, we must never cease seeking and finding new pathways to connect, not just with each other, but with our inner selves. From the time of the great Frederick Douglas to the late great Anne Frank, we can never underestimate the power of words, and the power of personal narrative. One book can help change the world.

In summary, our mission is quite simple: to help people from all across the world write their biographies, so that we can pass onto future generations what have learned, through all of our failures, triumphs, and dreams, while at the same time, hopefully, exponentially increasing our collective knowledge and information for the sole benefit of one another, as members of one humanity.

More About The B.I.O.’s Vision

Our foundation has multiple projects and ideas in the works that are inspired and driven by our dedicated mission of an auto-biographical world. For instance, we plan to establish a publishing company, so that after completion of your auto-biography, biography, and/or memoir, will be able to offer our members different publication options that will include printing, bounding, and distribution of not only physical books, but e-books, and audiobooks as well (preferably with you as the narrator).​

Also after completion of a book, you can also option us to sell your book to the general public, on your behalf, for the same continued membership fee you’ve been paying, with any and all proceeds going back to you and your family.

So let’s say for example we help John Doe write his auto-biography. The Biography International Organization will not only help pay to publish his book, but will also sell his book to the general public, on his behalf, with any and all of the proceeds going 100 percent directly back to John Doe or to The John Doe Foundation, a private foundation, paid for and established by our organization financed through a combination of membership dues and private donations. This is something we wish to do for all of our members. This way, all membership dues can potentially pay for itself through future distribution and sales.

We also plan to have writing seminars, where our members can work on writing their auto-biographies and biographies together, a company newsletter, a YouTube channel, a blog, an online library of auto-biography and biography books, where our members can order books for a small donation, and seminars where we can read and learn from the auto-biographies and biographies of different people from all over the world.

Eventually we also plan to film auto-biographical documentaries, as well as to help write the biographies of small businesses, and the biographies of our favorite pets and animals. We are working diligently towards achieving all of our foundation’s present and future goals, but we cannot possibly accomplish any of our company’s objectives without the public’s support.

We take a lot of pride in being a non-profit corporation, which means that all monies raised will be utilized in furthering our mission for the sole and direct benefit of our members, as well as the general public. And as we continue to move forward with our journey, we hope that you, your family and friends, will make a contribution and that we will continue to grow, learn, and improve together.
