Maggie Doyne: Saving Children

Maggie Doyne left her comfortable home in New Jersey for a gap year with no expectations that it would change the trajectory of her entire life. But on a trip to Nepal, she felt a call to help the local children. She used the $5,000 in her savings to buy a piece of land and create a children’s home.  Maggie went on to found BlinkNow, a nonprofit dedicated to serving the children of Nepal and she subsequently co-founded a school as well as a health clinic, women’s center, and more. She has been globally recognized for her community-based and sustainable initiatives and was named a CNN Hero of the Year.
