Company : Generosity Series

In 2005, Saul Rosenblum, took his first step into a healthy, active lifestyle and didn’t stop until he had completed the NYC Marathon. Along the way, he sparked a grassroots fundraising campaign for a food pantry and raised more than $40,000 in less than three weeks–without a website or software. Saul was hooked on the concept of using healthy activity to raise funds for charity. Energized, Saul co-founded a not-for-profit organization that paired healthy activities with charitable fundraising and raised over $600,000 for causes in less than three years. Pained by the facts that smaller organizations were at a disadvantage in the peer-to-peer world, and that larger organizations were forced to invest so much time and effort into events that their staff and fundraising suffered, Saul conceived The Generosity Series: a multi-charity peer to peer platform that removes the heavy lifting, risk, and expense that typically accompany Run/Walk events so that charities can do more with less and raise and retain more money for mission. Now with events in nine locations (and growing!) The Generosity Series has empowered more than 100 Charity Partners to raise nearly eight million dollars.
