Stream Energy, a major supplier of energy services based in Dallas Texas and a long-time participant in corporate philanthropy, was featured on Patch earlier this year for their company’s philanthropic efforts through the founding of Stream Cares, a dedicated corporate charity foundation that put a formal face on Stream Energy’s long history of ongoing philanthropic activities.
Featured in the Patch’s article are many examples of Stream Cares’ more recent philanthropic efforts. After Hurricane Harvey, Stream Cares partnered with Hope Supply Co. to help alleviate the suffering of those who lost their homes. While many corporations simply throw money at a problem and walk away, Stream Energy decided to utilize their charity foundation to get far more involved and provide a positive experience for those affected, and particularly for the children affected by the storm. In order to do so, Stream Cares covered the cost for more than 1,000 children to attend the annual event Splash for Hope.
In another tragedy, when multiple tornadoes struck Northern Texas before Christmas in 2016, Stream Energy associates actively teamed up with the Salvation Army to raise funds for those in need of assistance. The company then matched the funds that had been raised to double the amount gathered from donations.
However, Stream Energy does not only assist during natural disasters and tragedies. Ongoing efforts to support our military and veterans is also a priority to them. One example of those efforts is Operation Once in a Lifetime, where Stream Cares stepped in to provide financial and moral support for veterans and donated transportation for the less fortunate veterans to be able to attend a special lunch at a popular Texas restaurant. Stream Cares then co-hosted the American Girl Doll Experience for 10 daughters of military members and stream associates got personally involved by supporting the girls through the event.
While Texas is among the least generous states, Stream Energy, through their Stream Cares foundation, is doing their best to make up for the lack of philanthropic and altruistic efforts around the state, and they regularly make it a core principal of their daily operations.

Waiakea water is a Hawaiian-based bottled water company originally founded in 2012. Unlike many filtering processes that exist within the industry, Waiakea looked to approach their product from a different perspective. Using real Hawaiian volcanic water from the Mauna Lao volcano, Waiakea’s product is unlike anything else available on the market today. Their mission is to deliver the highest quality beverage to its consumers and to do so with the greatest amount of respect and care to the environment. Many competing companies often look to their bottom line to drive their business model. Waiakea’s dedication is to the land that produces their product and to the employees who work every day to deliver its product to their devout consumers.
One-way Waiakea is making a difference and setting a new standard for the industry is by using low emission vehicles to deliver their products. Carbon emissions are an on-going issue for the environment as the demand for global commerce increases every year. Waiakea is focused on doing their part by producing the least amount of carbon bi-product as possible during the transportation process. It is unavoidable for growing companies to have no impact on the environment with the transportation methods in today’s world, but Waiakea stays committed to adhering to their model of putting the environment ahead of their own financial interests. Another way they implement this standard is by giving a percentage of their revenues to local charities and non-profit organizations. They also donate their product to places in need, most notably countries on the African continent, which are in desperate need of a constant supply of fresh water.
Waiakea approaches another problem within the water bottle industry, which is obviously, the water bottle itself. Every year, billions of water bottles are used by consumers as the demand for purified water increases. Not all of these units will reach the recycling center and many will bediscarded into landfills or onto the Earth’s surface. It is estimated that it takes roughly one-thousand years for the standard water bottle to decompose. Waiakea’s bottle was designed to decompose in roughly fifteen years and will hopefullyset the standard for all water bottle companies to follow in the years to come.

The SENS Foundation, an organization dedicated to research for anti-aging has been the recipient of handsome donations from entrepreneur Jason Hope. Why is Hope so committed to this particular foundation? His connection with them is deeply rooted in the fact they are focused on finding a way to prevent aging before it ever starts.
A conference that the SENS Foundation is holding this year in Santa Clara, hopes to introduce new findings of their research. This conference will be focusing on what they call “regenerative medicine”. Many diseases are directly linked to aged adults, specifically diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and even cancer. Hope loves seeing panels of experts at these conferences that are discussing topics like therapies that will aid with anti-aging, cellular and molecular damage caused by these diseases, and preventative strategies all around for anti-aging research. Jason Hope Pledges $500,000
Jason Hope began giving to the SENS Foundation in 2010, with a donation of $500,000. This donation was to fund the laboratory and research that they were conducting on the breakdown of chemicals in the tissue of humans that could impact aging and how rapidly it occurs. It is for this reason that Hope is interested in watching what the SENS Foundation can do. Their focus on finding how to prevent the disease before it begins would be ideal. This is because diseases that are more prevalent in the aged can negatively impact major functions of the body.
Hope is a successful entrepreneur and philanthropist dedicated to innovation and scientific research. He holds a strong interest in technology that is related to the research behind slowing down aging. Additionally, Hope is highly regarded in the world of business, and is revered as the one to help you find answers with any challenge within your business model.
Hope was born and raised in Tempe, Arizona, and continued his college education at Arizona State University. Although he studied finance, he later went on to study at the W.P. Carey School of Business through Arizona State University as well. His background has served him well in making financial decisions regarding donations to research as well as investing in what methods appear to be more solid in preventing aging and finding new methods to do so.

The current approach to treating cancer is incredibly outdated and seems to offer patients no way to see their needs met as an individual. This is something Eric Lefkofsky does not want to see anymore. He is spearheading a movement to treat cancer patients as individuals and to provide them with solutions specifically meant for their bodies. His approach has given the world with Tempus. This new biotech company is creating the exact sort of solutions we’re going to need in order to successfully eradicate cancer. Lefkofsky has certainly proven he understands how to generate wealth, but this will be a test of his ability to solve some of the world’s longest standing problems.
Tempus approaches cancer from a genetic and lifestyle perspective. Everybody is different and everybody needs a solution meant for them. He solves the problems of cancer therapy by making sure every patient gets the side effects and other issues that might come up checked out. This keeps them from falling prey to a number of common issues such as ineffective treatment or undesirable side effects. The results of his work are easy to see. Patients are doing much better when doctors decide to use Tempus compared to what they experience before hand.
Eric Lefkofsky didn’t make himself a billionaire by refusing to see what opportunities there are and taking them. He understands when to take risks and try something new. His previous projects include everything from tech startups like Groupon to actual investment firms. Regardless of what he does Lefkofsky seems to succeed and go full steam ahead. There’s plenty of reason people learn from him and take his ideas as the necessary background to ambitious movements. He understands how to make things happen and he takes the time to invest wisely. This revolution in medicine he’s spearheading is going to be talked about for a long time to come. The current approach to medicine doesn’t seem to be generating much in terms of results for cancer patients, but he just might be able to change things for them thanks to his new way of doing things.
