Ever wanted to find more socially innovative businesses or get a sense of what people are doing ot change the world? Well, now you can at sir.tv. Every weekday, sir.tv features a new Social Innovator and profiles the work they do as well as give you a way to find out more. At least two of the groups we've presented here have made the list, Adam Braun from Pencils of Promise, and Cynthia Koenig from Wello Water.
I love the idea of collecting all of these innovators in one place. It allows people to discover the creative ways others are trying to solve the world's problems. I think the potential of this to inspire new ideas and give these projects a boost is pretty tremendous. I've featured six SIR's here in the slideshow.
