T-Shirt to Promote Social Entrepreneurship

April 26th, 2009 · No Comments · Zazzle

t-shirt to support social entrepreneurshipI had the pleasure last week of learning about the organization Echoing Green. They’re a non-profit group that supports the concept of social entrepreneurship. If you don’t know what social entrepreneurship is, just think in the business world about what venture capitalists do. VCs try to find entrepreneurs with great business ideas. They’ll provide seed funding so the entrepreneurs can grow their business.

Echoing Green does the same sort of thing, but as a non-profit organization themselves, they focus on finding people with great ideas for making the world a better place and naming them “fellow” to receive funding. So far, they’ve helped organizations like Teach For America, City Year, Genocide Intervention Network, and International Bridges to Justice get off the ground, among many others. All of these organizations truly make the world a better place for all of us.

Obviously, a great idea like this needs funding themselves. They get some corporate funding, but need contributions from individuals too. The cute T-Shirt you see above is available in men’s or women’s styles. When you buy it, the proceeds will go to help Echoing Green, but more importantly, wearing it will help spread the word about this great organization.
