Peanuts4Peanuts Featured in The Guardian

Here's a great example of 1 of our former students exemplifying sustainable entrepreneurship. Kendra Wilkins has started Peanuts4Peanuts, a company that sells all-natural, U.S. sourced peanut butter here in the States, and for every jar sold, provides a malnourished Haitian child with a dose of Haitian-sourced, medicinal peanut butter. 

Kendra and her partner Lizzie made their funding goal and received scholarships to join a start-up funding incubator. They're on their way to starting their company and saving the world, one jar of peanut butter at a time!

Their story was picked up the internationally renowned Guardian newspaper who featured them in a recent story about how social enterprises and entrepreneurship can help Haiti recover.
