A couple months back we were contacted by a local business man and entrepreneur, Kyle Horn. Kyle was starting a new non-profit that would bring recognition to people that have had a checkered past, but have turned their life around. I love how he explains it:
"Our society celebrates lottery winners, celebrities and professional athletes. We rarely hear inspiring stories of individuals who have lifted themselves from poverty through the hard work and perseverance that leads to meaningful employment. By publicly honoring these individuals we inspire others. We promote the programs that offer a helping hand. Perhaps most importantly, we rekindle hope and energize the work ethic by shining a spotlight on successful role models. It’s time for a new kind of hero."
It has been an honor to be a part of this start-up. The website will be launching early next week. Can't wait to show you all!
