“Cowart has a Kickstarter campaign underway now for the Purpose Hotel, which he hopes to begin in Nashville and then expand globally. It will be a place where absolutely everything inside benefits a worthy cause: The high-speed internet fee will go to an initiative fighting human trafficking; the furniture creation will provide jobs for people in need; the soaps and shampoos will be made by women who’ve survived violence, addiction and other devastating hardships. The list goes on and on. Each room in the Purpose Hotel will also sponsor a child’s education, with a plaque on each door telling that child’s story.
“One hotel will provide jobs locally, domestically and internationally,” Cowart tells Rolling Stone Country. “We are going to sponsor children, fight human trafficking and do all these amazing things. Take this hotel and put it in Miami, New York, L.A., London, Paris and all over the world… It’s been fun to see people online say, ‘Wait a minute, this actually could change the world.’ This is a very practical way to make an impact.”
