Lives in Charlotte, NC
, Founder at Blessed Lotus
live as if you’ll die tomorrow
Charlotte native, DeAnne Wingate, is a digital evangelist who left at the height of her career in NYC to find meaning and fulfill her true calling.
After leaving the internet advertising space in 2010, Wingate ended up in India, working with girls forced into the sex slave trade and children living in slums. She returned to the U.S. in 2012 and established a 501(c)3 charitable organization, Rippled Purpose to fight human trafficking and child labor through education. Wingate also founded Blessed Lotus, a women’s apparel company, on the principles of social entrepreneurship, to financially support her mission.
Opening her heart to a road less traveled made it possible for this new whole-hearted life to unfold. Wingate’s life mission is to bring education and love to impoverished children around the world and she is passionate about propelling the message that companies can drive profits and make the world a better place.
Wingate is dedicated to sharing what she has learned to help others connect with their hearts. Her eBook, “Finding Meaning: From the Inside Out”, is a road map to navigate through this challenging yet incredible life changing process.
