Goodie Nation is a community of good people using innovation to solve some of the world’s toughest problems. In 2016, we focused on improving reading & math skills as well as helping connect people impacted by gentrification with ways to make or save money. Those efforts lead to launch of startups like Goodr, Civic Dinners and Mini City. In 2017, we launched the Hack The Violence initiative which includes projects TeachX, GoSafely, Amiglo, and Fly Life.
For 2018, we are launching our most important initiative yet – Hack Health to reduce health dispraise affecting 1 million people by the year 2021. But we can’t do this without your help! In order to make Hack Health a reality, please consider making a contribution today.
