181: The Greenbaum Foundation

 

Jim Greenbaum has been interested in resolving injustices that exist in our society since he was a child in Louisiana. When he was a young adult, he had the idea of combating some of these issues legally, by attending law school. At the last minute, Jim decided to switch to a business major, with the idea that he could make a larger impact that way.

Thankfully, Jim was far from wrong. After a few "practice" attempts at business, Jim was able to reach a goal to help support organizations dealing with human rights, and later added a focus on animal rights.

Today, Jim has successfully supported numerous organizations, including Animal Equality, Earthling Ed, The Humane League, The Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine, as well as documentaries such as Game Changers, What the Health and Cowspiracy (to name a few)!

* Correction: At around 33:10 I mentioned that 80% of Americans are obese or overweight. According to healthdata.org, it's 75% of men and 60% of women that are classified as either overweight or obese.
