Blake is the founder of Purposity. Purposity comes from the core belief that humanity finds purpose through generosity. Purposity. Everywhere around us we see people in need. We also see people who want to help others but don’t know how. We connect those dots through the power of text messaging and social media. It’s easy. It’s simple, and it takes just a few clicks to make a difference.
