Orlando, FL, October 29, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- For the second year in a row, Richtopia has named Wayne Elsey as one of the top 200 global philanthropists and social entrepreneurs in its list, “Philanthropists Top 100: From Warren Buffett to Elon Musk, These Are the Most Charitable People in the World.”
In 2017, Elsey was number 193 of the world's most influential do-gooders on the list, with him raising in the rankings in 2018 to number 99, a jump of 94 spots in the new list that only counts the top 100 individuals.
Elsey said, “I’m incredibly honored and humbled to be counted as one of the world’s most influential philanthropists, along with people such as Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey and Elon Musk. Each one of us can play a part in helping others in need.”
Elsey continued, “This is particularly exciting this year as my team, and I are preparing to launch the largest recycling for-profit social enterprise in the world to provide a pipeline between corporations, retailers and individuals and people living in developing nations in need of used clothing and shoes both to sell and wear. 70 percent of the world’s population uses recycled shoes and clothes, and people living in developed nations don't truly understand that there is a way to dispose of unwanted and used clothing and shoes in a socially responsible way that supports the environment and provides people in developing countries with a path to help themselves out of poverty, which they soon will be able to do with this new company."
