Do you know about SAM?
I had no idea what SAM was until I recently learned. When I did I was truly grateful for all the things that we have here in the US. Not everyone is so lucky, some don’t even have basic nutrition to thrive and are suffering with SAM (Severe Acute Malnutrition).
There are five awesome individuals from Orange County, California took action instead of just wishing for something to happen when it came to the kids around the world who suffered from SAM. They put their thinking hats on and put all their time and money into help the fight against SAM in undeveloped nations. They have saved the lives of nearly 1200 kids in Malawi Africa in 17 months.
Could you imagine helping these kids survive and have the basic nutrition needs their little bodies require to live! Did you know the #1 killer of children under 5 years old is SAM and it kills 3.5 million children a year. That is more than any other diseases like Malaria, TB, HIV, AIDS all together! That is a scary thought! It is also to many innocent children who never even have a chance because they do not have the basic necessity of nutrition in their lives.
My goal is to get this Non Profit Organization called PB+J Foods out there to as many people as I can! It doesn’t take a lot to help save these children from dying each year if we all could just help.
This awesome organization PB+J was created in March 2012 with Stan Smith, Brian Hunsaker, Donna Wertz, Heather Premac and Haley Hunsaker. It is a non profit organization and was created to eradicate Severe Acute Malnutrition in undeveloped nations, plus to help build a self sustaining economy and this would help provide for the future citizens.
