We often find purpose in acts of generosity. The problem is that we are not always aware of the struggles our neighbors face, or we may not know how to help. With this tension in mind, Blake Canterbury founded Purposity (purpose + generosity), which leverages technology to connect would-be philanthropists to tangible needs in their community. In this episode, Blake joins William and student leader, Haley Dorsey, as they imagine the possibilities of collective effort to positively impact lives and communities.
