We interviewed Tim Sandlund - founder of The Reach Initiative.
The REACH Initiative™ was
started by Tim Sandlund, a marketing professional who wanted to do
to good with the gifts that God gave him. Tim spent four weeks in
Kenya his freshman year of high school during a family medical
missions trip. The family returned again two years later for six
weeks. Both trips were life-changing experiences. The culture and
people are beautiful. Spending time at the hospital and surrounding
communities, the need for basic healthcare was seen throughout the
Tim went on to become Director of Marketing and Communications for
a local chain of nine pharmacies. The opportunity for social good
products within the healthcare market was wide open. Vitamin
deficiency among children 0 to 5-years-old in developing countries
is a critical issue. Pharmacies are full of vitamins - but no
products did any good for those children. This is where the idea
for The REACH Initiative was born. By providing consumers an
opportunity to buy differently on their high-quality vitamins -
they can give life-saving nutrients to five children for an entire
year. Buy differently and do good.
REACH Vitamins™ is
the first product line of the parent company, The REACH Initiative.
The REACH Initiative is a for-profit social good brand – we sell
healthcare related products that do good.
