A Good Kind of Business

A business that makes nothing but money is a poor kind of business.
Henry Ford

I don't think it's about making money. It's more about acting as the custodian of the world's resources, both human and natural, and making sure those resources are put to work in such ways that they are useful for the survival of the human race.
Thomas J. C. Raymond

No margin - no mission
Richard Stadtherr

Nourish the Children (NTC) through one of its alliance partners, Feed the Children, has delivered over one million VitaMeals™ for the relief efforts in the Gulf Coast. These meals have been donated by Nourish the Children distributors in the United States and Hong Kong. The emergency relief centers report that VitaMeals™ have been well received by the refugees especially after they add their own Cajun spices to the recipe.

Nourish the Children is a social enterprise that makes more than money. It acts as a custodian of resources, both human and natural, and NTC makes sure that those assets are put to work in such ways that they are useful for the survival of humanity.

Over the past 3 years of its existence, NTC has provided more than 33 million meals to feed severely malnourished children through its alliance partners (e.g World Vision, Feed the Children & The UN World Food Programme). NTC has also provided thousands of people with the opportunity and platform to become effective social entrepreneurs. These entrepreneurs understand better than most that no margin means mission not accomplished.

We NTC social entrepreneurs are seeking a purpose beyond, but not without, profit.
