This young man, David Merritt, has to be one of the most inspiring young leaders I have ever met.  Still in his 20's, he has taken a stand for something, and opened a business in the heart of Detroit, called Merit Goodness.  And boy, what a vision!

Not only is the concept top notch and well thought out, the product line is incredible, and the mission is nothing less than inspiring.  As they 'do well,' they are equally focused on 'doing good too.'  Young David Merritt, a young CEO and entrepreneur, working hard to save Detroit, is also helping to send young people to college too!

If anyone deserves our support, this young man does. I for one, will make sure I am one of his first purchase clients.  I want to stand right behind his potential.  You should want to do the same.
