The Purpose Prize for Social Entrepreneurs

kisslifeHere’s a very cool prize I just heard about:

The Purpose Prize awards $100,000 prizes to five social entrepreneurs who are 60 years or older and are trying to improve their communities through their work.

As a society, little has been done to support the remarkable efforts of these individuals, which further supports the notion of a decline in the second half of life, rather than a time of creativity, invention and contribution.

These awards were created to honor and support the elders in our communities who are making a difference.
