NASHVILLE, Tenn.—The Purpose Hotel™ has resonated with people all over the world, uniting 5,000+ supporters and reaching three-quarters of a million dollars. Though the campaign fell short of its initial goal, The Purpose Hotel™  is designed to give the public the power to change lives, and is therefore launching a new campaign today to continue the building story. The $347,000 goal of the new campaign will support the launch of the initial design phase. Funds donated surpassing the goal will aid in furthering the hotel architectural plans, interior planning and engineering design/planning specific to the sites selected for the hotel.

“We are so honored and blown away that the campaign was backed by over 5,000 people at $750,000,” shares founder Jeremy Cowart. “We didn’t reach our initial goal which means we get $0, but we have developed quite the buzz on this project. People want it to happen. We didn’t win the Super Bowl, but we made it deep in the playoffs. The good news is that we are re-launching the campaign today.”

Authors, artists, actors and activists such as Ann Voskamp, Rebecca Mader, Laura Bell Bundy, Jamie Tworkowski, Lecrae, Donald Miller, Dave Ramsey, Sophia Bush, Paramore, Zachary Levi, Imogen Heap and more shared their voice socially in supporting the cause. Helmed by famed photographer Jeremy Cowart, The Purpose Hotel™ was covered by Forbes, USA Today, Huffington Post, Rolling Stone Country, Conde Nast Traveler, The Tennessean, Relevant, Christianity Today and more.
