THE STORY:

MakeYourGreenCountforEdesia -

By St. Patrick’s Day 2015 I hope to raise at least $110.00 to help the nonprofit Edesia reach more starving children worldwide by making more Plumpy’Nut in their Providence, R.I. factory for their humanitarian partners such as UNICEF and USAID. Plumpy'Nut is fortified, peanut-based, and ready-to-use. It’s hailed as a “miracle food” for its ability to save a life in just 7 weeks.

I had a chance to tour their factory, meet their employees and hear their personal stories of life in their countries.  Edesia has also provided some of their products to kids in Providence.  Their goal is to start with the most severe cases of malnutrition and eventually help all kids, including those in the U.S.A. with food insecurities.

So make your green count! Donate $5 by 3.17.15 and challenge 10 friends to do the same for a total of $55, the cost of one box of Plumpy’Nut, a full lifesaving treatment. One box, one life. It’s that simple.
