5 Inspirational Speakers Who Are Putting Their Power Towards Good
It’s really easy to read the news every morning and let the state we are in cloud the rest of our day. However, not all news makes headlines, especially the smaller acts of kindness. If we look in the right places, there is so much inspiration to be found.
We wanted to take a break from your regularly scheduled COVID-19 updates to share some amazing things our inspirational speakers are doing to help make the world feel like the home we know and love.
- Bethenny Frankel is refocusing BStrong’s efforts on COVID
Bethenny Frankel’s BStrong organization is focused on providing real time emergency assistance to people in a crisis. So, it shouldn’t have come as a surprise when Bethenny pivoted the group to tackle the COVID crisis.
The organization has worked tirelessly to amass gear for the first responders of COVID-19, everyone from nurses to EMT’s to firefighters. Bethenny says the entire process has been insane with the group having to “battle governments and price gougers.”
So far, BStrong has committed to servicing 250 small hospitals in need all over the country. Bethenny equates our medical professionals’ lack of masks and sanitization products to a firefighter running into a burning building without even a helmet for protection. The organization’s direct work with manufacturers has provided $16,559,000 in PPE to healthcare first responders.
- Molly Bloom wants to bring us all together
Molly Bloom and her husband, Devin Effinger, started a live podcast called One World Group. The podcast focuses on bringing people together from across the globe during this time of self-isolation and loneliness. People are joining by the hundreds daily to find connectivity and learn as a community.

- Mark Cuban supports local businesses
Mark Cuban, Owner of the Dallas Mavericks, sent a company-wide email to all of his employees letting them know he will personally reimburse them for any meal bought at a local, independent business. He hopes this will help support small businesses through
this time of crisis and put more money back into the economy.
