RSF Social Finance

Before we get on to today's blog, we want to thank Samual James for his kind comments on our blog.  We really appreciate all feedback, suggestions and ideas for new blogs and shows.

We appreciate it, Samual, and please keep reading and sharing our blog with others.

Found this non-profit with a very interesting focus on "transforming the way the world works with money".  One of the strategies they use, we find intriguing, is their investment in fixing our "broken" food chain, an issue we've covered many times.
