"If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one." Mother Teresa

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.

Do You Give A Fish?

Ever heard the English proverb, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime?" Well, that works out great if the man lives near a stream with a good supply of fish. But, what if the man lives smack in the middle of dry land? Or, what if he is too sick to fish?
I teach people how to fish for the man who cannot fish for himself.

Imagine a perpetual feeding machine that generates the right amount of nourishment needed on a daily basis and provides it. Now,  picture yourself sending off life-saving meals today, without ever leaving your home to go to the post office, and receiving a check in the maill next week for doing nothing more than getting a few people together to do the very same thing? What if that happened month after month?

 A cause worth joining is a cause worth telling people about. 

Did you know that 18,000 people die every day because of starvation? There is a solution. We have it. This is my cause and I am proud to say that out-loud. I am a Social Entrepreneur. What are you?

"Social entrepreneurs are not content just to give a fish or teach how to fish. They will not rest until they have revolutionized the fishing industry."                                                                  Bill Drayton, CEO, chair and founder of Ashoka
