Greg's interest in philanthropy was sparked as a child -- thanks in large part to the MS Read-a-Thon. When he was 25, he founded The 11-10-02 Foundation. The volunteer-run organization has now provided scholarships and grants in all 50 states. Greg has been featured by media like NonProfit Times and The Washington Post. He has received honors like the Jefferson Award for Public Service. On separate occasions, Greg as an individual and The 11-10-02 Foundation as an organization have been named Daily Points of Light.

Nonprofits, community foundations, and certain local chapters of national nonprofits have gotten the books and/or workbooks based on Greg's story for their Board, staff, volunteers, donors, beneficiaries, teen philanthropy program participants and/or other local students. Over the years, some nonprofits have sponsored The Elevator Project (a kindness recognition project involving the books) as well. SCROLL DOWN
Local foundations and certain chapters of national nonprofits have gotten copies of the Legacy Poem posters for adults (e.g. for their Legacy Society donors) &/or students (e.g. for civic-minded teens in their community). SCROLL DOWN
n many cases, a company or organization getting the books for adults or students has also partnered with Greg on an event. For example, McDonald's got the books & workbooks for a teen philanthropy group raising funds for their local Ronald McDonald House and sponsored Greg speaking with the group.
