"For the last decade, I have been traveling around the world, shooting for, collaborating with, speaking with and meeting incredible nonprofits," Cowart said. "Their founders and teams have become close friends, but I’ve never understood the bigger picture until now. My journey has led my team and I to this moment, where we get the opportunity to help all of them through The Purpose Hotel. What a gift. We could not be more thrilled to move forward on this journey together.”
