In May 2019, IDEXX CEO Jonathan Ayers appeared on CNBC’s Mad Money, where host Jim Cramer called the veterinary diagnostics company “one of the hottest stocks on the market.” Just one month later, Ayers suffered a nearly fatal cycling accident that left him a quadriplegic,. Ayers is now embarking on his next chapter. In April, he pledged at least $20 million over the next 10 years to Panthera’s Global Alliance for Wild Cats, an ambitious initiative to protect the world’s most threatened wild cats.

Wikipedia is the 10th-most-visited website on earth, but when it comes to Africa, there is a scarcity of information for an entire continent of one billion people. As Wikipedia marks its 20th anniversary in 2021, an initiative launched by the Moleskine Foundation is supporting young people across Africa in creating content about Africa on Wikipedia, including the translation of more than 200 pieces of COVID-19 information into 17 African languages.

PKPR has secured coverage of the project in Reuters, David Byrne’s Reasons To Be Cheerful, Global Citizen, TechRadar, Christian Science Monitor, Inside Philanthropy, World Economic Forum, The Daily Mail, Reader’s Digest, Courrier International, Good News Network, The New Activist, and Global Times.
