small Aaron McDaniel, a passionate entrepreneur who is making a huge difference helping others. He recently created a civil rights nonprofit startup, The Jill Wakeman Foundation, in honor of his godmother’s decades of work as a civil rights activist. The Foundation has launched the “Cups for Equality” micro-giving campaign -- by selecting your personalized coffee order from their online menu, you can donate the same amount you might otherwise spend at your local coffee shop to social causes. Getting to “order your coffee” really spices up the giving process; it’s a fresh take on the online micro-donation system that’s proving to be so successful elsewhere. Aaron himself earned the nickname “Mr. Business” because of all the ventures he’s pursued in the past. Beyond that, he’s dedicated to giving back to the community by being a Big Brother and teaching Junior Achievement. In addition to the recent start of the Jill Wakeman Foundation he's created a number of other past businesses, including Flagdown Taxi (a smartphone taxi app).
