WSJ (http://www.startupjournal.com/ideas/services/20060412-bennett.html) - Mrs. Hensley, 57, operates the Hope Chest for Breast Cancer, an upscale thrift store in Wayzata, Minn., that contributed more than $55,000 last year to the Hope Chest for Breast Cancer Foundation she also runs. The nonprofit funds breast-cancer research, programs and services. She expects to open a second store this year in the Minneapolis area and plans to franchise 50 Hope Chests that can contribute millions more.
