It started with a cup of loose change

Miraj and Andrew were driving down the freeway to view an apartment. They took a sharp turn and a cup of loose coins went flying across the car. Miraj turned to Andrew and told him he should do something with all these coins. In the next 10 minutes, the guys drove past 10 different charity ads, all garnering donations in different, old school ways. A metaphorical lightbulb went off in Miraj and Andrew’s heads simultaneously. They knew they could do something modern, new and genuinely helpful.

Harness was started that night

And Connected Giving became the new way to change the world, a little each day.
