GOOD Technology profiles Social Impact, an app created by Founder, Rolfe Larson, that guides “conscientious community spending” straight from a consumer’s mobile phone.
For example, “a search for restaurants in Los Angeles results in listings for Homeboy Bakery and Homegirl Cafe, both part of Homeboy Industries, a non-profit organization that helps at-risk and gang-involved youth gain emlpoyable skills.” Plus, the app has a Shop Online option for web-based purchase of products and services. Larson says, “We created Social Impact to help socially-minded customers find the businesses that create the change they want to see in the world.”
