Founding Love For Our Elders
In eighth grade, Cramer became inspired by his grandfather's death to make a difference in the lives of older adults. He wrote kind notes to nursing homes, and upon receiving overwhelmingly positive responses, he began recruiting others and teaching himself about building a sustainable nonprofit: sophisticated search engine optimization techniques, digital design, and 501(c)(3) legal requirements. Today, his nonprofit operates on a global scale.
In 2015, Cramer became the youngest representing member of the World Kindness Movement. In December 2016, he was featured on the front cover of American Profile magazine for his nonprofit work. Following this, in January 2017, he was featured alongside Lady Gaga and Daniel Lubetzky in sister publication Parade. In January 2018, Cramer was announced as one of Lady Gaga's Channel Kindness reporters for her Born this Way Foundation.
He has given 2 TEDx talks.
On April 30, 2021, E! News honored Jacob as one of 13 Heroes Who Are Inspiring America.
Jacob Eli Cramer was raised in Cleveland, Ohio by parents Barry and Kathy Cramer. He graduated from Orange High School in May 2018 and is a student at Yale University.
