It was Summer 2016 when Brooklyn brothers Mike and Nick Fiorito quit their 9-5 jobs in search of more meaningful work.
For months, they jumped from one entrepreneurial venture to the next, failing miserably every step of the way.
By the time Winter came around, Mike and Nick were losing all hope.
To get their minds off their failures, Mike and Nick started a GoFundMe campaign to raise money to buy blankets for people living on the freezing cold streets of NYC.
With the helping hands of friends and family, they hand-delivered 100 “Blankets of Hope” to those in need.
Little did the brothers know, their good deed would pay them back in ways they couldn’t imagine...
On the other side of the country, a video portraying Blankets of Hope had captured the heart of top Forbes-ranked venture capitalist, Todd Chaffee.
Their guardian angel had arrived...
With Todd’s mentorship and financial support, the brothers transformed their small family project into a globally recognized non-profit organization!
Blankets of Hope has now donated over 31,000 blankets and handwritten notes to those in need - and counting!
