FounderSociety member and celebrity photographer Jeremy Cowart recently launched humanitarian relief project, The Purpose Hotel™, to fight against injustices of war, hunger, poverty, global warming, racial tension, unclean water, addictions and natural disasters.
Every aspect of the global chain will directly contribute to those in need through strategic sourcing and procurement. The Purpose Hotel will fight against injustices such as poverty and human trafficking through partnerships with Charity Water, The Giving Keys, Thistle Farms and more, as every aspect of the hotel (blankets, soap, internet access, furniture and more) will directly contribute to those in need. The project is launching with a large campaign designed and developed by The Purpose Hotel™. Through the project's Kickstarter, individuals have the opportunity to become co-founders as backers of the project.
In only 48 hours, 1400 people from different walks of life united to raise over 10 percent of the 2 million goal. Pattie Mallette, Imogene Heap, Dave Ramsey, Kim Williams-Paisley and more have supported the cause on social media.
Says The Huffington Post: "While some projects may seem larger and more ominous than others, Jeremy Cowart refuses to let fear deny him his pursuit of passion. The same passion that has been forming over the last four years resulting in his biggest dream yet—the same dream that includes the rest of us―the Purpose Hotel."
Cowart has been featured in USA Today, Observer, Product Hunt, and many more publications. "The concept upon which Cowart and his business partner Michael Moore hope to build a for-profit global hotel chain takes social responsibility in the lodging industry to another level," explains The Tennessean.
Jeremy Cowart has captured images in over 25 countries. His work has been seen on the pages of Rolling Stone and USA Today, reaching the channels of A&E and ESPN. An earnest desire to do more has led the photographer to focus on Help-Portrait, See University and now, The Purpose Hotel.
