Jim Brennan, COO and Co-founder of PS It Matters, a company based in York, Maine was the November 6 speaker.  Jim has a diverse business experience that includes large corporation, entrepreneurial ventures and a support of non-profits that has spanned his entire career.  After living in Europe for seven years, he returned in 2008 with a commitment to develop and build socially focused for-profit businesses that would create monthly reoccurring revenue streams to support their missions.  The elimination of hunger in our communities by way of creating business with a "double bottom line"...profitability and donations to Food Banks/Pantries from every purchase...is his sole focus. He remains a director and advisor in a number of entrepreneurial ventures.
Jim spoke at many venues and began to realize that while food banks and pantries would indeed remain beneficiaries of their work, the original company, Meals 4 Ohers could help others fund their passions by changing the business profile.  Starting in December of this year 15% of the cost of any purchase will be donated to the purchaser's designated charity.  The buyer chooses and Jim's company writes the check.  What a fabulous idea for corporate gift buyers AND any of us looking to give unusual gifts at a personal level.
