StopSAM donates $5,000 – 13,000 packets of MANA!


MANA employees, Regina & Michael, are presented with a check from StopSAM by Co-Founders Mike Levison and Luke Mysse.

Last week, our good friends and Co-Founders of StopSAM, Mike Levison and Luke Mysse, visited the factory to present MANA employees with a $5,000 check! This donation will buy about 13,000 lifesaving packets of MANA! We are so grateful to StopSAM and for the supporters who are helping Mike and Luke make their dream a reality.

Mike and Luke, along with Mike’s daughters and Luke’s dad, also received a tour of the factory and a chance to meet many of the MANA staff. “You got this feeling that you were somewhere special when you were walking around; this wasn’t just any factory. The smell of peanut butter, the sound of the machines spitting out packets and an overall sense of purpose. The company culture was great. Every person I met there knew how special this place was. They knew they were saving lives,” said Luke.

StopSAM looks forward to many more updates like this one, putting 100% of the money they raise towards buying packets. Learn more about the venture, here, and how Luke plans to help stop SAM by riding his bike across the US this spring, here.
