EBI Launches Inaugural Giving Year of Just One World Foundation

Owings Mills, Maryland - Employment Background Investigations (EBI) Inc., one of the nation’s largest privately-held employee background screening firms, today announced the launch of the inaugural giving year for the Just One World Foundation beginning Nov. 15, 2019. The foundation, established by EBI CEO Richard Kurland and his wife Marti, will raise money to save the lives of children in need in memory of former EBI investor Lenny ‘Route 29 Batman’ Robinson, who through a remarkable concurrence of events will forever be connected to Kurland’s daughter Georgia. Robinson gained international notoriety in 2012 when Montgomery County, Md. police posted dash-camera video footage of him being pulled over on Route 29 in his custom Batmobile and Batman costume. The local superhero was tragically killed Aug. 16, 2015, in an automobile accident on Interstate 70 in Maryland.
