Living for a Cause is organization of social entrepreneurs dedicated to the belief that humankind, as good stewards, are responsible for creating positive change wherever and whenever possible.
Living for a Cause works to effect positive change in the world. We think and act strategically to bring about the maximum good by the smartest use of human and material resources.
Through donor contributions and fund raising alliances with various for-profit ventures, Living for a Cause creates streams of revenue which are channeled to charitable groups in the form of food and medical supplies, laboratory materials, and other tangible items. Living for a Cause is pledged to carefully manage all funds entrusted to it by social enterprises and the donor community. It cultivates an efficient, transparent and accountable culture within its own administrative body, and seeks the same in the charities it benefits. Therefore it supports only organizations that demonstrate an efficient model of social responsibility, one that limits fund raising and administrative costs to maximize the positive impact of their mission.
As a part of our new campaign we are reaching out to Nutro Products, Inc. in an urgent appeal to ask that you partner with us to deliver much needed dog and cat food to local food banks.
We have found that people who are in need of the services of local food banks oftentimes have to surrender their pets to shelters unable to sufficiently feed them. If dog and cat food was there in addition to the other goods needed by families, it is our hope less family pets will go hungry or need to be surrendered to area shelters. I would like to start this campaign with the southern and central New Jersey food banks as a trial run.
Living for a Cause has chosen to bring our request to Nutro Products, Inc. because of their commitment to community, to animal welfare and according to Nutro’s web site “We understand that your pets aren’t just companions-they’re important members of your family.”
So together, with one voice, one commitment to create hope and change, as far as it is possible by us let’s keep families well fed and together. And that includes the family’s pet.
I trust Nutro Products, Inc. will want to lead the way in taking swift action to prevent unnecessary hunger by our most loyal of companions, our family dogs and cats.
