21: How Charity Water’s Scott Harrison Gets People Hooked On Generosity
My friend Scott Harrison has had quite the personal journey. Scott was a nightclub promoter in New York City, before he went in a completely different direction. After spending two years volunteering as a photojournalist in West Africa, he founded charity: water, which builds clean water sources for people in developing countries. Listen to my conversation with Scott to learn how he built one of the fastest growing non-profits in America.
