Living Goods receives Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship

Living Goods receives Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship

Last month, Living Goods and founder Chuck Slaughter were one of 6 recipients of a 2016 Skoll Award for their work supporting “health entrepreneurs who save lives door-to-door”!  We are deeply honored,  humbled and inspired.

It should go without saying that the credit for Living Goods’ impact, and the honor of the Skoll Award, is only possible because of you, our visionary, committed funders, our talented, passionate team, our partners at BRAC, Medic Mobile, Care, and PSI, and, most importantly, our dedicated Community Health Promoters who do the hard work of making a difference every day in the lives of their neighbors.

Thank you for all that you have done and do to support our mission. You are such a big part of the Living Goods journey, and we are so grateful to have you along for the ride with us.
