We <3 Our Board
These are the people who are legally and fiscally responsible for DoSomething.org.
They're sort of like owners, but instead of cutting up the profits (there are none), they give us advice, support, money, and their first-born child. We meet as a group at least four times a year. And we email, call, and Facebook with them in between meetings. (Buffone likes to post gorgeous sunset photos on Facebook.)
Look who's here!
He is a senior partner at Apollo. Remember when Apollo bought McGraw Hill Education? That was Larry. He has terrific instincts and knows lots of cool people. We love his advice and introductions.
Big lawyer at big law firm, Gibson Dunn & Crutcher. (He is very tall.) He has been on the Board since the beginning -- and his firm has given us over a million dollars in pro bono legal services! We're super lucky.
