#39 - FIRED UP about lockdowns in poor countries
I was interviewed on the Coronacast podcast by Josh VanKooten. Here is his summary:
"In this episode, I speak with DonorSee Charity’s Founder and CEO Gret Glyer to discuss the impact that government lockdowns have had on the impoverished population of Africa. Gret explains why the poorest class of people in Africa, who live on less than $3 a day, have been severely impacted by the lockdowns and why they need them lifted now. Gret also explains how he became so passionate about this issue and why it led him to start his charity DonorSee."

A MUST listen-to podcast!
This podcast is incredible. It will both encourage you and challenge you. Gret does a wonderful job of talking about the reality of global poverty, but not in a way that drives you to guilt, but in a way that compels you to believe that with smart and transparent giving apps like DonorSee, we can solve and reconcile worldwide poverty in this generation. I believe wholeheartedly in Gret Glyer and the wonderful work he is doing to end injustice around the globe.
Very eye-opening, challenging, and inspiring. I love it! Gret does a wonderful job hosting and the conversations are really thought-provoking. I highly recommend it!
No one GETS IT quite like Gret Glyer
I first met Gret Glyer when he was a guest on the Tom Woods Show and I was immediately blown away by what he was trying to do. I emailed the show host and asked how I could get in touch with Gret Glyer. At the time I was working for a Non-Profit and thought his DonorSee app would be a fantastic way for us to raise funds for specific projects in hardest hit Disaster Zones. His app was not a good fit for us but Gret and I have been friends ever.
He WALKS the WALK. Not only did he spend several years in the POOREST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD! He decided to change the status quo, and because he took the risk people all over the world are getting the help they need from generous donors who want their money to go right where it's needed.
As the CEO of a start up (several stages behind Grets and Not a non-profit) Gret is a huge inspiration to me. The way that he has grown a following around doing the right thing gives me hope for the world!
I am so glad he's started this podcast so that he can share with me, his nuggets of wisdom for how to help those who need it most.
