Stephen Clarke pivoted in his 50s to make a positive change in his life while making a positive impact in the world. Over the last few years, he has developed a new model around giving, formulating The Vegan Experience which aims to provide healthy non-GMO organic vegan food to the 17 million+ children in North America suffering from food insecurities.

Show notes:

When people donate they want—and deserve—to know where their money is going. They need full transparency and they need to know the impact their money is making. As many of the young people we work with put it, “What’s in this for me?” Aren’t we all in this together, and shouldn’t we all be able to win? I realized that the current charity model made it impossible to answer those questions. Charity has been around for 200 years and the way it is done hasn’t been touched. So it’s time for a change.
