Scott Bahr and Suja Thomas

When Scott Bahr and Suja Thomas were dating, they made a pact: they would consume less on a daily basis so that they could donate more to others. The couple, who met on a church mission trip to South Africa, was struck by the poverty they witnessed there and how the children they met wanted simple things like food and water. That trip spurred their decision to spend less and give more money away. Scott and Suja began supporting Grameen Foundation in 2009. “We were excited to learn about Grameen Foundation’s innovative efforts to alleviate poverty throughout the world and are dedicated to supporting this work,” they explain.
