Katie Blomquist is a spreader of joy. She is a former teacher who worked in the low income, high poverty school district. When one of her precious little 1st grade students, Jawan, asked her for a bike for Christmas, it broke her heart. So much so that she decided to start a Go Fund Me – and her nonprofit called Going Places – to enable every child in her school to have a bike. Her Go Fund Me went viral and her story was featured all across the country on places like Good Morning America, Steve Harvey, NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, Huffington Post, ABC World News Tonight, and so many more. Because Katie has a huge heart to make a significant impact on this world, she has also started an initiative where she trains others in a step-by-step online course on how to start a nonprofit. And she’s even offering a public Facebook group on how to start a nonprofit. We absolutely love how Katie is changing lives… one custom bike and one nonprofit at a time. Be sure to check out her online auction to help fund Going Places!
