    Why B1G1 may not be what you think it is

    By Dr. Peter Dobias, DVM

    Dr. Peter Dobias, DVM has 30 years of experience as a veterinarian. His love of dogs and passion for natural healing and nutrition led him to writing, teaching and helping people create health naturally, without drugs, chemicals and processed food.

    How to create a world full of giving

    I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am about today’s announcement. 

    You may already know that it’s in the DNA of our company to run as a sustainable, socially-conscious business.

    One of our great clients and allies told us about an organization called B1G1. At first we didn’t know who they were, but when we looked into it we got super excited. Let me tell you why…

    B1G1 might make you think of “Buy One Get One”, but how about “Buy One Give One” instead?!

    B1G1 was founded by Masami Sato. As a self-made entrepreneur of a food production company, Masami Sato said it was always her dream to provide healthy food to needy children. After five years and much sacrifice her business was stable, but she still hadn't achieved her dream of sharing her food with children who needed it. She became involved in a group of socially-minded business owners in Australia and pitched her idea to provide one meal to someone in need for every meal they sold in their food business. She said she would like create a world that’s full of giving and B1G1 was born!  

    When Natural Healing Community Leader Alicia Amundson learned about B1G1, she knew it would be a perfect fit for the Natural Healing mission.

    Imagine if you bought GreenMin and an orphanage in Africa got clean drinking water for a week. Or if you bought FleaHex and a child in Cambodia was able to go to school for a week. 

    Please know that this is not a fundraising effort. We are not asking you for donations. On the contrary, we will be giving on your behalf every time you purchase our products for your dog. 

    We value your opinion, so before we finish the initial set up of the program we would like to ask you for help choosing the right B1G1 project. Please send us your choices for the best project here.

    The challenge we have is that there are very few animal-related causes. We are currently in the process of inviting holistically-minded charities to apply, but this may take some time. 

    We also plan to submit our homeless dog project to be one of the B1G1 projects too, but this also will take time.

    In the meantime, we decided to focus on human health and education to get the ball rolling, then dedicate funds to animal beneficiaries as more come on board. Why?  Because we believe that if people have a better life, animals live better lives too. 

    Please share this information with animal shelters you love and encourage them to apply to be a B1G1 recipient. There is no cost for them to apply or be a recipient but they can benefit immensely. 

    And, don’t forget to click here to help us choose some projects to get things started. 

    Thank you so much as always for your support and trust in our products and our mission.
