“An emissary is someone who is sent on a mission to represent the needs or interests of someone else."
Humanility is searching for people who are positioned to use their profession as a platform to promote the needs of those who have been disenfranchised and devastated by poverty, war, human trafficking, and natural disasters.
Artists, musicians, business owners, and others who are willing and able to present the needs of those who have been broken or betrayed by the community of humanity, to the world.
We are pleased to present our first Humanility Emissary, Rachael Mann. On February 10, 2015, Rachael will be releasing her latest song on iTunes and Amazon Music, and she is donating 50% of all sales to Humanility and our cause of emancipating, educating, and empowering survivors of poverty, atrocity, tragedy, and slavery. With 28 million slaves in our world, we need more heroes like Rachel to join the fight to free all of the people on our planet.

Rachael’s new EP “Proud Of Me” was released on iTunes and Amazon Music on July 15th, 2014 - Please be sure to get your copy today!
Rachael’s vision is to reach the world with her songs and to encourage people to trust in God and not give up on their dreams!
Recently, Rachael joined forces with Dwayne Patterson and Matthew P. Barnett to write a powerful song called, "What Kind Of Love". As they contemplated the powerful love of God that rescued them, they became more burdened for the 28 million slaves in our world and decided to donate 50% of the revenue from this song to help fight Human Trafficking. To do this, they agreed to partner with Humanility, and we are so grateful for them. On February 10, "What Kind Of Love" will be released on iTunes and Amazon Music, and Humanility would like to ask you to join us in this great cause and purchase your copy of the song. Not only will you be helping to emancipate, educate and empower victims of human trafficking, but every time you listen to this song, you will be reminded of how incredibly loved you are - and who doesn't need that several times a day?
