De Anne Wingate returned from India in March of 2012, with a desire to help children living in slums around the world receive the best education possible. She saw first hand that this was the only hope for these precious little ones. Thus, the seed was planted for her non-profit, Rippled Purpose.
Rippled Purpose is organized to provide hope to children living in slums around the world through education and love – which extends to their nourishment, medical & dental care, and college aid. All funding will be utilized for programs that create self-sufficiency within the community. Giving children the chance to rise above oppression and poverty are the fundamental principles driving Rippled Purpose.
I had the pleasure to meet DeAnne at a volunteer event in Charlotte where we both had helped out for a fund-raiser. Not only did we bond over our shared name & spelling (!), but we also share a common path as to how we came to find our purposes in life. I'm honored to share DeAnne & her passion w/you! She's also going to share about an exciting project she's working on documenting some of the work being done in India & the difference being made there.
