Congratulations, 2009 Purpose Prize Winners

PurposePrizeAnd thanks for using your passion, skills, and experience to help solve some of the world’s biggest problems.
The 11 winners, all social entrepreneurs older than 60, are using their “encore careers” to innovate. As Marc Freedman, co-founder of the prizes, notes:

More than ever, the problems facing our communities, our country and our world call out for creative solutions. Fortunately, we don’t run out of ideas as we age. Like so many others in this new stage of life between the end of midlife careers and the beginning of true old age, The Purpose Prize winners combine creativity, experience and passion with a desire to do something bigger than themselves.

You can already nominate someone for the 2010 Purpose Prize. The deadline is March 5.
