Today I took my son to the dentist. She was quite happy with the health of his teeth. He eats well and brushes as suggested so I was not surprised, but the dentist seemed to be. As the conversation went on, I learned that having healthy teeth is not something we should take for granted. This dentist taught me there are hundreds of children in our area who do not have a beautiful smile. Not because they don't brush properly but because they don't eat right.
That really got me thinking about my efforts to feed the starving children in the world. You see, many of the people I work with to achieve the goal for ending world hunger live a grand life. They eat well and have the money to take good care of themselves and their own families. But, I have been wondering about the people I don't work with. What's their story?
I really hate the saying "it takes money to make money." Now, maybe if you want to open a McDonalds franchise or buy a huge apartment complex, that's true in some circumstances. In my profession, if done correctly, that simply isn't the case. Instead of needing money to make money you need belief in yourself and your product to make money. My product is feeding children who would otherwise starve to death. How can I not believe in that? And, because I believe in it so deeply, it is easy to have belief in myself that I absolutely am making a difference.
I am making a difference because I believe.

According to the World Health Organization there are some 900 Million people globally at the level of starvation. 18,000 people die every day because of this growing problem. This blog will highlight the areas around the world we are currently working feverishly to end these avoidable deaths and bring stories of happiness and hope for the future. Join us in creating a perpetual feeding machine that not only saves lives, but provides an income stream for you and your own family at the very same time.
