This week GiveForward won the gold in the Edison Awards for social impact. For those of you not already familiar with the Edison Awards, here is how they are described:
“The Edison Awards have been recognized as America’s innovation awards that take the time-tested characteristics of innovation from earlier visionaries and write a new chapter in American innovation history.”
“Write a new chapter in America innovation history” – That is exactly what GiveForward is doing. They are proving that you can run a profitable business while having significant social impact. GiveForward empowers friends and family to send love and financial support to patients as they navigate a medical crisis. Desiree and Ethan have been more committed and more passionate about their mission than just about any other entrepreneur I have ever met, and it shows in their results and in the number of people they have helped. It has been amazing journey to watch, and it has only just begun!
