Doing Well by Doing Good
Several years ago, Boake and
Carol Moore decided to do
something to help
impoverished and homeless
children in the U.S. and in
other countries. So, they

purpose." All of the
company's profits are
donated. During the past
three years, proceeds have
funded orphanages and
schools in Russia, Africa,

With the realization that one tends to get what one
focuses on, we believe in using positive, strength-based
