Episode 253: Saving families with Caroline Boudreaux of The Miracle Foundation

Caroline Boudreaux is a social entrepreneur and Founder of the Miracle Foundation, an international nonprofit that helps orphans and foster children find a safe, stable and permanent family.

Caroline is a firecracker Cajun who was born and raised in Lake Charles, Louisiana. She founded Miracle Foundation in 2000. While visiting a small village in India, Caroline was invited to the home of a local family that had taken in over 100 orphaned children. From the moment she met those children, she committed her life to helping children find forever families and the sense of belonging we all crave.For her achievements with Miracle Foundation, Caroline has received various awards, including The Hope Award, The Impact Award, and the United Nations Humanitarian Award. She is a popular speaker on topics of Reimagining Philanthropy, Social Impact vs. Charity, and how to Engineer a Miracle. In 2009, she was recognized as one of 200 Young Global Leaders at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Caroline has completed executive programs at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, Yale’s Jackson Institute for Diplomacy, and the India School of Business.Today it is my absolute delight to introduce you to this new dear friend of mine and I think you’ll fall in love with her just as quickly as I did the first day we met, when she bought me a sandwich at Sundance Film Festival before even meeting me in person because we were headed to the same meeting with mutual friends and she heard I was hungry. Her passion for saving families is absolutely contagious and I can’t wait for you to get to know her and be inspired by her goodness.
