JADE O'HEARN

CEO and Founder

I believe we live in a sharing world. I believe we are all generous. I believe we all want to do good in the world. I have to believe this, it’s why my family and I are alive. Through the good grace and generosity of complete strangers – strangers who felt an innate desire to do good – did good and saved a family, and planted the first Pachira seed.

Be Kind, Be Generous to each other…you have impact.
