Thanks for supporting our new (and improved) crowd-funding site!  I am excited to leverage my 15 years experience as an Executive in the Digital  Marketing and Sales space! We founded Red Capes with the idea of wanting to bring more good news to the world. Wendy had incubated this entire concept several years ago, and we tossed it around, did a year of research to discover what people loved and disliked about the current model, and improved it. RedCapes.com is not just a crowd-funding site, it’s a Interactive Social Media Fundraising Site for anyone who believes in paying it forward! Every single campaign that we attract, is about doing good for others, and leaving this world a better place than how we found it; which is why we are seeking to fund progressive, sustainable, unique, original, cool ideas and businesses that have a deep impact, with a small footprint.

Red Capes is also branded in the Superhero Comic Book Theme to attract the super-hero within all of us; and to support the Kids in all of us, whether you are 5, or 105, we want to appeal to your love of Super Heroes and our innate abilities for compassion. Truly being there for one another, and paying it forward, is core to our companies philosophy!

If you have a campaign, or know of a friend or acquaintance who needs help raising money…Red Capes to the rescue! How to start? Start with our amazingly helpful online survey here: http://www.redcapes.info which will automatically come over to us, and we’ll review and be in touch! It’s THAT easy…..

Here is to a powerful and passionate evolution of the people’s true bank, RedCapes.com!

DevinThorpeDevin Thorpe thinks he is the luckiest person alive. After being “let go” from the best job he’d ever had—as the Chief Financial Officer of the multinational food and beverage company MonaVie—he and his wife ended up living in China for a year where he wrote Your Mark On The World and embarked on the career he’d always wanted yet hadn’t dared dream.

Now, as an author, a popular guest speaker and Forbes contributor, Devin is devoted full time to championing social good. His current life isn’t much like his past.
As an entrepreneur, Devin ran—at separate times—a boutique investment banking firm and a small mortgage company. He served as the Treasurer for the multinational vitamin manufacturer USANA Health Sciences years before becoming CFO for MonaVie. Over his career he led or advised on the successful completion of $500 million in transactions.

Devin squeezed in two brief stints in government, including two years working for Jake Garn on the U.S. Senate Banking Committee Staff and another year working for an independent state agency called USTAR, where he helped foster technology entrepreneurship during Governor Jon Huntsman’s administration. Devin is proud to have graduated from the University of Utah David Eccles School of Business, which recognized him as a Distinguished Alum in 2006. He also earned an MBA at Cornell University where he ran the student newspaper, Cornell Business.

Today, Devin channels the idealism of his youth with the loving support of his wife, Gail. Their son Dayton is a PhD candidate in Physics at UC Berkeley (and Devin rarely misses an opportunity to mention that).
