The holidays are approaching and we all know what that means: scurrying to buy all the right gifts, attending holiday parties, decorating the house and did we mention buying gifts? The holidays are the perfect time to give the very special gift of Nourish to your loved ones. Contributions equip communities with the tools they need to pull themselves out of poverty and shape students into lifelong leaders of change. In spirit of the holiday season, this month we will be featuring some of the generous individuals who decided to Give the Gift of Nourish.
Meet Jud Bowman. President and CEO of Appia, Bowman currently serves on Nourish’s Board of Directors. Bowman has been named one of the world’s “Top 100 Young Innovators” by MIT’s Technology Review and one of “Tech’s Best Young Entrepreneurs” by Business Week in 2007. He was also recognized as a winner of Carolina’s Ernst & Young “Entrepreneur of the Year” award in 2001. As a lifetime contributor, Bowman has gone above and beyond in supporting the Nourish movement.
“I support Nourish International because of the great work that they do to with young social entrepreneurs. Nourish students run businesses that not only impact their local economies, but invest profits in communities living in extreme poverty. I have seen Nourish grow from a few chapters to 28 campuses since I joined the Board of Directors. The scale of the movement, unbridled passion of young change-makers, and focused impact on extreme poverty makes Nourish International a great cause to devote my time to.”
Thank you, Jud, for your continued support for Nourish’s work. Will you join Jud and Give the Gift of Nourish?
