The amazing author of Disrupting for Good, Chris Field, has created a book that has allowed ordinary people who have been “disruptors” to be recognized for their accomplishments. Through Chris’ choices to disrupt the mistreatment of children in Ghana, he leads the example of what a disruptor truly is. He is the founder and executive director of Mercy Project. The mission of Mercy Project is to rescue children from slavery. They partner with families and communities trapped in the cycle of poverty, empowering them with sustainable economic solutions in order to free children from forced labor.
Chris has completed research and shares other disruptors accomplishments that create better futures for society. A nursing home in Seattle has a daycare center for children contained in the same building. A Boston pizza restaurant hires individuals that are deaf and communicate by using sign language. The customers have to order by using sign language. There are many more stories with creative and touching ideas! Disrupting Good will have readers wanting to be apart of disrupting what needs to be changed in the world and becoming a disruptor.
This podcast also recognizes people that have created businesses in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area that gives individuals who are disabled a better future through education, job training, and hope.
