Speaker: Danielle Gletow, Founder & Executive Director, One Simple Wish
Topic: From Chasing A Paycheck to Chasing Passion


Social entrepreneur and Top 10 CNN Hero, Danielle Gletow, shares her funny and heartwarming story of finding her true purpose and how she turned a passion for helping children into a million dollar nationally recognized nonprofit in just a few short years.

For over 12 years, Danielle Gletow has been a passionate advocate for children’s rights. In August 2008, she founded One Simple Wish after becoming a foster parent and witnessing firsthand the obstacles, trauma and heartbreak faced by children in the foster care system. 

Not one to sit by while injustices occur, Danielle decided to create an organization that empowered anyone to make a direct and meaningful difference in the lives of foster children and vulnerable families by granting them simple, personal wishes online.  

In July 2009, Danielle left her decade-long career in interactive marketing to pursue One Simple Wish full-time. To date One Simple Wish has granted over 6500 wishes to foster children and vulnerable families and has created a network of over 500 social service agencies in 42 states.

D
anielle has appeared on NBC Nightly News, The Nate Berkus Show and News 12 and in The Star Ledger, The Christian Science Monitor and Woman’s World, among others. Ms. Gletow delivers presentations throughout the United States on topics including improving the child welfare system, following your passion and on micro-giving as a powerful way to make a difference.

In March 2013, Danielle was named a CNN Hero for supporting children in foster care through One Simple Wish. Danielle has also been honored with the Mercer County Cherish The Children Award, the Woman of Achievement Award by the Princeton Chamber of Commerce and as one of Burlington County’s 40 Under 40. Danielle currently resides in Ewing, NJ with her husband, Joe, their two daughters, Mia and Lily, and their beloved English Bulldog, Duncan. 

Danielle has recently been chosen as a Top 10 CNN Hero and is currently vying for top honor as CNN Hero of The Year.
