Noted Edmonton philanthropist and Internet entrepreneur, Jesse Willms, is launching a dedicated website so people can help spread the word about worthwhile charities, and give up and coming entrepreneurs business advice.
“Whether it's worthy nonprofit groups or up and coming entrepreneurs, I like to help people,” Willms said. “I've written quite a bit of advice but never had it archived in one place. This will make things easier for people I think.”
The site, http://www.jessewillmspressreleases.com will be updated regularly and maintain an online archive of past press releases and other announcements.
Willms has become famous in the Canadian business and philanthropic communities. He started his first business in his basement when he was 16 years old. Within six years, he was running a multimillion-dollar operation.
Last summer, he was watching television when he saw Bill Gates and Warren Buffett challenge successful entrepreneurs to use their wealth and influence to support charities and other nonprofit groups that work to make the world a better place.
Since then, he has given hundreds of thousands of dollars to various charities including World Vision, The Kiva Foundation, The Breast Cancer Research Fund and Big Brothers/Big Sisters Of Canada. He has also volunteered his time to a variety of Edmonton nonprofit groups including Santas Anonymous, The Mustard Seed food bank and Habitat For Humanity.
As he has done so, he has documented his efforts and explained online why he has chosen these charities to support. “When I first contacted these charities I asked them what I could do to help,” Jesse Willms said. “They told me that donations are important, but it's just as important to help spread the word about the work they do. So, I've done my best to send out press releases and encourage others to support charities as well.”
Jesse Willms said that by having all of his press releases consolidated on one site, he feels that his promotional efforts for the organizations will be even more effective than before.
He's also issued press releases advising young entrepreneurs about how to make money online while still behaving ethically and honestly. Those press releases, he said, will also be included on the new website.
“This will be a one stop site filled with information that I hope will help people and nonprofit organizations,” Willms said.
