Founder, Save 1 Person. Save The World.
Lauren Finkelstein started Save 1 Person's global media campaign in 2002. Save 1 Person's mission is to save or dramatically improve a person's life who's in need of a medical miracle through the power of the media. Save 1 Person's news breaks appear weekly on TV, Radio, Internet, and many national publications. The news breaks ask the public to save that life featured, whether being a living organ donor, or getting tested as a bone marrow donor, or helping to diagnose a disease.
Previously, Lauren served as a Senior Promotion Producer at Court TV and she's worked for various TV networks including WABC, WNBC, CNBC, King World and MTV. Lauren also spent one year learning about the nonprofit world at the Wexner Heritage Foundation.
Lauren holds her Bachelor of Arts from the University of Miami and majored in Telecommunications and Drama.
