When I sat down at the end of the year and really thought about where I wanted to see A Thousand Crumbs go in 2019, I had an overwhelming desire to partner with an organization and be a force for good in this world. Don’t get me wrong, recipes and healthy food are GREAT (and we will still do LOTS of that!), but I want to do more. One of the most powerful things we can do as a community is give back, so here’s how we’re going to do it!
I recently launched a SHOP on my page where you can find some pretty awesome A Thousand Crumbs branded gear. 50% of my profit from ALL A Thousand Crumbs gear is going to go directly to a selected charity. That means, every time you rock your A Thousand Crumbs sweatshirt, or cook in your A Thousand Crumbs apron, you are not only declaring your love for this amazing community, you are helping those in need.
For the entire year, I will do everything I can to support the current charity partner, and at the end of the year, I will be transparent with you about what we’ve accomplished together.
I am overjoyed to announce the 2019 A Thousand Crumbs charity partner is Feed My Starving Children!
What is Feed My Starving Children?
Founded in 1987, Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a US-based non-profit dedicated to reversing and preventing undernutrition in communities around the world.
With the help of food scientists, FMSC has carefully crafted three different meal formulas that specifically target the effects of malnutrition to help reverse its damaging effects. Thanks to generous donations, which help fund the meal ingredients, these specialty meals are carefully hand-packed by volunteers. The meals are then distributed through FMSC’s network of humanitarian organizations to communities in need around the world.
Why I Chose Feed My Starving Children
FMSC is a passionate as well as compassionate organization with the highest integrity and transparency standards. More than 90% of total donations are spent directly on meal production, which means more of your donations go directly to help those in need.
Here are the results of their Fiscal Year 2017-2018.
Each meal costs less than a quarter to make, 22 cents to be exact. $80 will feed a child for a year. $365 will feed a family for a year. $1800 will provide a pallet of food for a community. That means every dollar A Thousand Crumbs donates, can do some real good in the world.
How We’re Going to Help
50% of all profits fromA Thousand Crumbs Gear are going to go directly to FMSC. Be sure you’re also subscribed to the A Thousand Crumbs newsletter for the latest updates and opportunities to join us in LA for local packing events.
