The Orange Duffel Bag Foundation Leader Pitches Live
The Orange Duffel Bag Foundation works with homeless teens and foster kids who are “aging out” of the system and often find themselves lost.
Echo Garrett, the founder of Orange Duffel Bag, will join me for a live discussion on January 9, 2014 at 5:00 Eastern to talk about the current crowdfunding campaign to raise money for their programs.
Echo Garrett is the co-founder/Board Chair of Orange Duffel Bag Initiative, a nonprofit that does life plan coaching with homeless youth and teens aging out of foster care based on the principles in the multi-award winning book My Orange Duffel Bag: A Journey to Radical Change that she co-authored. She frequently speaks on how we can help our nation’s most vulnerable teens become self-sufficient. She has written or contributed to 12 other books, including Why Don’t They Just Get a Job?: One Couple’s Mission to End Poverty in Their Community, and has been published in more than 75 national outlets including Parade, Delta Sky, and Business Week.Married to photographer/writer Kevin Garrett and mom to two sons Caleb and Connor, Echo has been interviewed on Good Morning America, CNBC, CNN, NY-1 and served as editor-in-chief of Atlanta Woman magazine.
