Yesterday John Wood was a guest on the Oprah Winfrey Show. Wood is the founder of Room to Read, an organization that has been a winner of our Social Capitalists Awards every year since Fast Company and the Monitor Group began the Awards in 2004.
Room to Read is currently working with Oprah on a donation drive where the public can help the nonprofit buy books to continue its mission. You can read more about the book drive and Room to Read here. The organization has been a remarkable success and shows what a social capitalist can achieve. I think any company can learn from its example.
