In 2011, Dave Heath was an aspiring entrepreneur in search of an idea when a single line in a news story caught his attention. It said that the number one most requested item in homeless shelters was socks. Dave’s mind was spinning and Bombas, the idea, was formed.  Together with his colleague Randy Goldberg, Heath set out to launch a line of socks with a twist. For every pair of socks purchased, Heath and Goldberg would pledge to donate a pair to homeless shelters. It was a bold and potentially risky plan. So they enlisted creative support from Andrew Heath and Aaron Wolk to produce the perfect sock.  By 2013 the co-founders launched Bombas, which is Latin for bumblebee, after raising a little more than 100,000 dollars on Indiegogo. Within a year, they were pitching their idea on Shark Tank and successfully acquired the interest, and additional seed money from apparel impresario Daymond John. Bombas was off and running. Today, Bombas is a juggernaut in the apparel industry, not just for their sales volume but their mindshare. Dave and his co-founders proved that you can build a sustainable and profitable business on a wholesome premise of giving. And from a practical standpoint, they dispelled certain myths of building a retail brand. You see, what makes Bombas special is their commitment to their core values. But what makes them unique, particularly in apparel, is that they’ve been profitable from year one. -- Show Notes: Bombas Socks Giving Back If you enjoyed this podcast, please subscribe, share with your friends and rate and review on Apple Podcasts and Podchaser.

The World Health Organization released a landmark report on vision in 2019. It’s estimated that 2.2 billion people in the world have a vision impairment and of that, nearly half are preventable cases to some degree. As with many disabilities, visual impairment impacts low income individuals, those who live in rural areas, ethnic minorities and persons with other disabilities to a more significant degree.  Much of this disparity along socioeconomic and ethnic lines are highly correlated to the conditions typically associated with poverty and lack of access to quality, consistent healthcare. The spectrum of blindness and low vision is vast and each contains unique circumstances, but there are relatable issues on the whole that are universal.  Our systems are built upon an assumption that all senses will develop equally and wholly. But those in the blind and low vision community are presented with the challenges that stem from this assumption and it affects everything from social development to employment opportunities throughout their lifetimes. In an era of heightened awareness around disabilities, equity and empowerment, one company is driving positive change through technology in a simple, and rather beautiful way. It’s called Be My Eyes.  Be My Eyes is an app that connects blind and low-vision individuals with sighted volunteers and companies from all over the world through a live video call. The app allows these volunteers to assist blind and low vision users providing a sense of purpose for the volunteers, and a pragmatic and empowering solution to the users themselves. Companies such as Google, Microsoft and Procter & Gamble have created unique programs to utilize Be My Eyes to assist their users and more companies are signing on rapidly. In this episode we explore the technology, the use cases, and powerful human AND corporate benefits of the app by speaking with the VP of Community at Be My Eyes, Will Butler. -- Show Notes: Be My Eyes Be My Eyes Podcast 13 Letters Podcast Be My Eyes App: Google, iOS If you enjoyed this podcast, please subscribe, share with your friends and rate and review on Apple Podcasts and Podchaser.
