Business As A Force For Good.

Virgin Unite is the non-profit foundation of the Virgin group founded by Richard Branson.  The foundation's aim is to revolutionize the way that governments, businesses and the social sector work together.  Virgin Unite believes business can and must be a force for good in the world - and that this is also good for business!  This is based on the belief that this is the only way to address the scale and urgency of the challenges facing the world today.  Around the world, Virgin Unite is rallying a passionate global community "screwing business as usual."  Overheads are covered by Richard and the Virgin Group, meaning that 100% of the donations received go direct to the frontline where they are needed most. 

The Virgin Unite 24902 Community

Our planet is 24902 in circumference. The Virgin Unite 24902 community is an extraordinary global network of more than 500 entrepreneurs, philanthropists and inspirational leaders from every walk of life.  At the heart of 24902 are leadership gatherings built for inspiration, collaboration, and learning.  They're life changing, and in the true Virgin spirit, a lot of fun!

As members of the 24902 community, Glenn and Mindy Stearns have participated in and hosted several of Virgin Unite's Leadership Gatherings.  In July, 2013, they brought six Horatio Alger Scholars with challenging beginnings in life, several inspiring speakers who survived incredible odds, and industry CEO's to Richard's home on magnificent Necker Island. The intention of the retreat was to create a mentor network for the scholars - and inspire all to embrace adversity as a tool to live our greatest "Purpose."

The 2013 Stearns Mentoring Leadership Retreat with Virgin Unite demonstrates the powerful impact of bringing together community, purpose, and fun. Take a look.
