"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.

Get It Unstuck

A social entrepreneur recognizes a part of society that is stuck and  provides a new way to get it unstuck. He or she looks at a problem that is not working and solves the problem by changing the system, and then spreading the solution and persuading the masses to take action.

I am not here to tell you that you and you alone must go out and gather hoards of people together. Rather, this project works best when you introduce this plan to a few people who, like you, choose to make a difference, and then they introduce this plan to a few more who, in turn, do the very same thing, and so on and so forth. It's a system that works.

This is not a new idea. We've only taken the steps to create a solution to one of societies problems and have created the platform for which others can take part. Get it unstuck!
"Social entrepreneurs identify resources where people only see problems. They view the villagers as the solution, not the passive beneficiary. They begin with the assumption of competence and unleash resources in the communities they're serving."
David Bornstein, author of How to Change the World: Social Entrepreneurs and the Power of New Ideas

A system that works is, indeed, a great system. We have that system. Our project is saving lives both at home and far, far away. Isn't it interesting that most of you reading this won't even think twice about it after you've clicked on to the next site? (How sad.)  But for those who, like me, believe there is a better way. I urge you to spend a few more minutes on this blog site and see what we are doing.

As always, comments are welcome and appreciated.
