I've met a Jon Gauthier a few times and while I knew he was an entrepreneurial fellow, I didn't know he was starting up his own courier company. The company, Good Foot Delivery, "provides a personalized point-to-point delivery service on foot or via public transit as well as employment opportunities to people with developmental disabilities."
I think this is a great idea, and while I don't want to downplay the hard work that Jon probably put in to get Good Foot off the ground I also think its a great example of how easy it can be to get a project like this off the ground with the help of social media. Its great to see that Jon was able to use his skills to do something he was really passionate about while also giving back to the community.
Read more about Jon's company, Good Foot, in the Toronto Star and then vote for them on the Pepsi Refresh Project website.
Keep up the good work, Jon!
