Nashville, Tenn. (August 4, 2016) – After a blockbuster debut on Kickstarter, renowned celebrity photographer Jeremy Cowart’s The Purpose Hotel continues to gain traction among the public with features on hit media sites including The Huffington Post, USA Today and many more.

“While some projects may seem larger and more ominous than others, Jeremy Cowart refuses to let fear deny him his pursuit of passion. The same passion that has been forming over the last four years resulting in his biggest dream yet—the same dream that includes the rest of us―the Purpose Hotel.” – The Huffington Post

“Cowart’s grand plans for his hotel are consistent with his modus operandi. He dreams big, creates social networks and often speaks about changing the world.” – Nashville Business Journal

“The concept upon which Cowart and his business partner Michael Moore hope to build a for-profit global hotel chain takes social responsibility in the lodging industry to another level.” – The Tennessean

“Sometimes we travel for escape and sometimes we travel to feel more connected to the world. Sometimes we travel for both at the same time. The Purpose Hotel wants to combine vacation and virtue in a game-changing way.” – Observer

“Imagine staying at a hotel where everything in the rooms – and the nightly rate of the room itself – benefited someone in need. That’s the idea that lodged in commercial and editorial photographer Jeremy Cowart’s imagination, and which has since evolved into ‘The Purpose Hotel’.” – Digital Photography Review

“Jeremy Cowart has an idea to the change world. The Purpose Hotel is unique because every aspect of the room will be connected to a global need or cause. They hope every night’s stay will elevate the lives of at least 100 people around the world.” – Relevant Magazine

“Jeremy has had a dream to open a hotel that will love on and change the world while people sleep. This is a truly special and powerful force in a world that needs some serious light and love right now.” – Product Hunt

“Cowart’s charitable initiatives go beyond photography; his newest initiative, The Purpose Hotel, began crowd-funding this summer. Each room in the hotel tells the story of and supports a sponsored child; each amenity from linens to keys comes from a nonprofit cause.” – Christianity Today
