We are Dino Korovessis and Katerina Ioannou, and we are working For A Cause. Our daughter Melina was born prematurely, weighing 1 lb. 12 oz. with a slim chance of survival. We went through months of hospitalizations, ER visits and surgeries. Melina’s grandmother, Virginia Ioannou, visited a monastery in our native Greece to pray for a miracle. Somehow, we got one.
Melina beat the odds, and is now a happy, healthy seven-year-old. She’s in dance camp, and she just learned how to ride a bicycle.
Sadly, Virginia passed away after an eight-year-long battle with cancer. But we will never forget her strength, or how her faith saved our daughter. Melina’s determination to live and Virginia’s courage to believe sparked a desire within us to do good in any way we can. Our experience made us realize how lucky we are, and it also made us realize we have the means to give back, to help others struggling throughout the world. Melina and Virginia inspired us to share the goodness through delicious food and charitable contributions.
Our focus is on providing the best quality products made from the finest ingredients around the world. We believe that eating well means living well, and living well includes being true to yourself and supporting your community. For every For A Cause product you buy, we donate $1 to Faces of Courage, a local non-profit organization dedicated to helping those battling cancer and blood illnesses by offering free camps and events to women and children suffering from such diseases.
But what sets us apart from other similar projects is our philosophy. We believe in keeping things simple – we don’t waste money on extravagant packaging and we don’t use the profits to buy expensive ads. We maximize the contribution and we go straight to the source. We give a full dollar to the charity, with no extraneous expenses.
Our products are pure and nutritious. Check your local health food stores. So now when you buy your everyday food items, not only will you be eating well, you’ll be helping us promote the wellness of others, all For A Cause.
