“Free the Children” is an amazing world renowned organization that was started by a young Canadian boy at the tender age of 12 years old. It all began one day, when Craig Kielburger was looking through a newspaper for the cartoons. A news headline “Battled Child Labor, Boy 12, Murdered” caught his eye. He was so taken by what he read that he brought this article back to his classmates and asked if anyone wanted to help continue the plight of Iqbal Masih, the young boy who had been killed for speaking out against child labor. Eleven of his peers raised their hand and this is how this incredible story began! Here is Craig on one of his first trips. http://www.freethechildren.com/getinvolved/youth/craig/
“Free the Children” is one of the world’s most successful charities. It inspires children from all over the globe to become active members of their communities. It encourages young people to become leaders and advocates for other children, mostly the poor and impoverished kids of this world. Free the Children is dependent on fundraising but also the amazing companies who are their official sponsors.
For this assignment I chose to speak about the “Nature’s Path” company. Since I amalready a health conscious person, I felt that this was the perfect topic for me! As a matter of fact, before starting this blog, I looked into our pantry and found several products from “Nature’s Path”. My mom is a wise shopper and she only buys “the good stuff” so if we have it at home it’s because it passed “the test” as my mom would say!
Nature’s Path was founded in the heart of a young boy years before it actually became a company. Arran Stephens love for farming began when he was just a kid helping out on the familie’s berry farm. His father Rupert always said “Leave the earth better than you found it”. This became one of Arran’s quest and one that has made “Nature’s Path” a very successful organic company. In fact, Nature’s Path is now sold across North America and internationally. It has been featured in several magazines such as: Shape, Fitness Magazine, Women’s Health and Glamour, just to name a few. To visit their company please follow this link. http://www.naturespath.com/. Here you will find a wealth or information on how you can better your own gardens by doing such things as composting and collecting rain water. “Nature’s Path” company won the prestigious 2011 “Foodies Award”!
“Nature’s Path” participated at “WE DAY” which is a one of the biggest events that “Free the Children” organize each year. During this one day event, Nature’s Path had a booth where people could “spin and win” for cool prizes and trips. They also spread the motto “Leave the earth better than you found it”.
