The Big Idea
“On any given night, there are almost 10,000 homeless in King County – the third largest population in the country, that is growing every year over the last decade. We’ve developed a peer-to-peer service economy where people can easily donate specifically requested items to the homeless. Giving someone a backpack might not end homelessness, but it may start a conversation that secures services that may save a life. We wanted to build something different, based on real-world needs and offering the public an opportunity to help people directly and tie into the network of social services already at work in their community.”

The Fast Pitch Experience
“It’s been an amazing experience. The coaches have been so helpful and the administrators have been so helpful in getting everything together. We have learned so much through this process from doing our pitch to getting our elevator speech right.”
