Mission and Vision
So far we have collection millions of calories and urned them into packets of RUTF via Save the Chidlren. Its easy to track our impact packet by packet. Here is a video of the Mana team and Johnson and Johnson employees checking out their donated Calories in the warehouses of Savce the Children in South Sudan and Dr Congo.
This year Americans will spend $60 billion trying to lose weight. Yet the global budget for specialized food used to treat severaly malnourished children is only $150 million. At Calorie Cloud we capture calories using Fit Bits or phones and turn them into packets of life-saving food for malnourished children. Go for a run, take a hike, ride your bike and the caloires you burn won't be wasted, they'll be collected and fed to malnourished kids. It's time to get active for good!
How does your innovation work?
Users here in the US simply download our app or join a challenge at their workplace and they are off and running. Every step they log, every calorie they burn is collected, stored and then truned into life-saving nutrition in the form a 500 calorie RUTF packet. It's simple, measurable and inspires people to get active for good.
We have a dual impact: We get people active here, offering companies tangible results in their efforts to move the needle on corporate wellness and at the same time we deleiver life-saving therapeutic food to children who need it in developing world settings.
Planned Goals and Milestones
Our strategy is to work with small and large companies in their corpate wellness programming to offer them a simple, out of the box program they can roll out and engage and inspire their employees to get more active.
Next steps for us are to scale into more and more corporate wellness programs. Our programs show people are 50% more active if they have a social impact connected to their own wellness activity.
