In this episode, we talk with Howie Hutchison who is the Executive Director at HopeKids Colorado. HopeKids in a nonprofit started originally in Arizona to create community for families with a child with a life-threatening condition. Howie has a small staff, but a huge volunteer base. He loves the power of a team and seeing people passionate about helping the hundreds of families he serves. Not originally a fan of fundraising, he has learned to be an advocate for what he calls “activating generosity.” Howie has a personal upcoming 30-mile run/walk that you can follow him on social media to raise awareness of HopeKids on October 22. Follow his run and consider what you can do to support this great organization!
