{Change the World in Your Sleep}

It all started with an idea.

For the last ten years celebrity photographer, Jeremy Cowart, {watch his story here} has traveled the world doing shoots for renowned celebrities; staying in a countless number of hotels along the way. Now, he wants to revolutionize the hospitality industry with a hotel that will change the world. It’s called The Purpose Hotel. {Find out more from this video.}

While curating a unique, luxurious hotel stay, Jeremy’s dream is to simultaneously tackle real world problems; poverty, lack of access to clean water, human trafficking and more. Each room booked will sponsor a child through Compassion International, the high speed internet fee will go to fighting human trafficking, and every toiletry and room decoration will be from brands who are making a difference.

Rather than simply creating a place of leisure and respite for the weary traveler, this hotel is doing more. It’s giving identity to the hurt in this world and taking a stand to do something about it. Just by staying one night, you will impact the lives of 100 people or more. Though the first location will be in Jeremy’s hometown of Nashville, this will eventually be a chain of world changing hotels.

//No one can help everyone, but everyone can help someone.//

Cowart is pulling together a myriad of brands and non-profit companies to execute this ambitious idea.

Here’s the coolest part: you can be a co-founder of the world’s first world changing hotel.

 The last thing Jeremy wants is for this to be about him. That’s why he’s choosing to bring this project to fruition with crowdfunding in lieu of a loan. He is inviting others into the project by setting a fundraising goal and asking people to pledge money through Kickstarter. How it works is if the goal is met or exceeded by the deadline of October 7th, they can move forward. If not, the balance goes back down to zero and another fundraising campaign will be launched later on. Jeremy’s intention is for this to be funded by those with a heart and passion for this project. It’s an invitation to be a part of generating local and international jobs, supporting world changing brands, leaving a lasting impact on people’s lives and as well as a lasting mark of love, hope and purpose on this era.

You may never be able to build 300 wells in Africa or rescue hundreds of women from human trafficking- but by supporting this hotel you can do exactly that and more.

Also, there’s some pretty awesome perks for giving! There’s different levels of gifts, but my favorite is if you donate seventy-five dollars or more your picture will be on the co-founder’s wall in every single hotel ever created.

As of right now the lowest goal of $347,000 has been met, but this is just the beginning- let’s help them exceed the minimum goal!

When I heard about The Purpose Hotel through this podcast, I instantly felt drawn to supporting it. Though I love all of the world changing aspects, what spoke to me louder was Jeremy’s complete willingness to jump on this God given idea. How often do we have thoughts or ideas that we simply ignore? “What if it doesn’t work? What if I mess up?” What if, what if, what if. What if someone’s life is changed? What if I grow closer to God because of this? Just like Jeremy, those are the what if’s I want to live by!

 But I have raised you up for this very purpose, that I might show you my power and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.
