Holstee is an eco-friendly clothing and accessories company that posted this manifesto to express the owners' belief system regarding life and work.  Two bloggers picked up on it and it spread like wildfire (another way of saying it went viral big time).

Talk about a 'feel good' story. The Acumen Fund is on a mission to create a world beyond poverty by investing in social enterprises, emerging leaders, and breakthrough ideas.
