About the Guest – Kori Chilibeck and Matt Moreau

Kori Chilibeck and Matt Moreau met in 2005 while working at Skiers Sportshop in Edmonton, Canada. Through extensive travel their eyes were opened to the dire circumstances in which a large percentage of the world lives. This instilled a sense of responsibility to do what they could to create positive change in the lives of people who need it most. In 2005 Matt and Kori started a social enterprise called Earth Water and donated 100% of their net profits to the United Nations World Food Programme.
