Our Commitment

  • 100% of the money donated goes directly to select projects.
  • PLB seeks to support small children’s homes (orphanages) that often lack visibility and backing from the state/large donors.
  • PLB carefully vets the orphanages we support and have personally visited each site.
  • PLB schedules annual “voluntour” trips to provide more awareness and support for our projects.
  • PLB strives to fully understand the needs at each orphanage and then work with staff closely to help attain their goals for the future.
  • PLB provides the unique opportunity for our donors to donate to the project of their choice.

The Project Left Behind Story

The inspiration for Project Left Behind began in April 2002, the day Danielle and Kevin LiVolsi met their first son, Gregory (then 3 1/2), at an orphanage in Mykolaivka, Ukraine.

As they walked the orphanage grounds, getting acquainted with their son, 15 pairs of eyes longingly watched them from the orphanage window.

In 2005, Danielle and Kevin returned to the Ukraine to adopt their second son, Matthew (then 1 1/2).

More eyes watched as they repeated the routine. Those eyes haunted Kevin and Danielle because they were left behind.

Over the next few years, because of Gregory’s extreme vitamin deficiency, Danielle began experimenting in the kitchen to create flavorful, super-nutritious foods.

One of those creations was NuttZo – the organic Omega-3 SEVEN Nut and Seed butter.

In 2008, Danielle quit her job and brought NuttZo to the marketplace. At the same time, Project Left Behind was founded to help orphans left behind.

NuttZo is the primary financial supporter of Project Left Behind and has donated over $100,000 from the sale of its products over the last 6 years.

The story of Project Left Behind started in one small part of the world. Sadly, there are millions of orphans throughout the world that need our help. Will you join us?
