Our story is about ordinary men and women going through and overcoming extraordinary circumstances. It's about people just like you who took a long hard look at the world around them, and most importantly within, to face cold hard facts and then do something about it!
What we are doing about it
In 1996 Stuph Clothing was founded to provide custom design and custom apparel printing to churches across the United States. Over the last 14 years, the company has worked with over 25,000 churches throughout the country. The company”s mission was simply to leverage its resources to change this world.
In April of 2009 Steve Hooper, the founder of Stuph Clothing, was serving on a missions trip to Haiti and was introduced to a packaged meal casserole of rice, soy, vitamins and vegetables that was formulated to reverse the effects of starvation. Upon returning to the states, Steve researched this Kids Against Hunger meal formula and corresponding satellite food packing program offered by KAH. At this time the staff at Stuph Clothing was introduced to the idea of setting up a packing satellite to fulfill its mission to change this world.
In November 2009, the Stuph Clothing team of employees began packaging meals as an official Kids Against Hunger packing satellite. Since late 2009, the staff began each work day at 7:59 am by packing 864 meals per day. This team-building routine reinforced our mission of leveraging our resources to change this world.
On January 10, 2010 Change This World, Inc. was incorporated as a Florida non-profit humanitarian organization. Up until this point in the organizationís history, we had packaged approximately 50,000 meals as a staff at Stuph Clothing. During the first two months since committing to this initiative, we began developing marketing and distribution goals that would see our Stuph team facilitate the packaging of a projected 1,000,000 meals for 2010.
Two days after incorporating Change This World, Inc. the earthquake ravaged the nation of Haiti, and we mobilized our team and put our plans into action. Within 48 hours of the tragedy we had food in the hands and stomachs of the victims. By the end of 2010, we facilitated the packaging and distribution of over 4,000,000 meals to children and families throughout the world.
We are thrilled to see what 2011 and beyond has in store for the millions of children and families wondering where their next meal will come from.
