Speaker Bio

Current as of

Maggie Doyne’s gap year between high school and college began a life-changing journey. While backpacking in Nepal, she was overwhelmed by children in poverty and sought to help. Using her life’s savings of $5,000, she purchased land and eventually built a home for more than 50 orphans to whom she is “Mom.” BlinkNow—the foundation Doyne founded with the idea that “in the blink of an eye, we can all make a difference”—provides a safe home, medical care, education, and love to the children she has so fully embraced as her life’s mission.
