35: Saving Children Through Social Entrepreneurship w/ Sam Caster & Jon Copper
Today’s guest is Sam Caster of EM Squared and Jon Copper of Nutrition on Mission.
“In 1998, founders Sam and Linda Caster donated to an orphanage organization based in Romania. When the directors of that organization thanked the Casters for their contribution, they expressed their growing concerns for the children in their care. Malnutrition was taking its ruthless toll on their lives. In desperation, the directors said, “If you know anyone that can help us with this problem, please let us know.” With the world’s most advanced nutritional and wellness technology at their fingertips, Sam and Linda donated a one year supply of nutrient support. One year later, the directors came back wanting more and out of the direct need, MannaRelief was born. A little over a decade later with thousands of people around the world joining together, we’re addressing the problem of malnutrition for children everywhere.”
“I am a Social Entrepreneur. I started Nutrition On Mission with the intent of creating a sustainable business model to nourish children with malnutrition, as well as create micro-enterprise opportunities in those same communities we nourish children.”
“Upright citizens are good for a city and make it prosper, but the talk of the wicked tears it apart.” ~ Proverbs 11:11
