Tiny But Mighty #TinyMatters on the Farm

For every share the #TinyMatters video receives, Tiny But Mighty Popcorn will donate $1 to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Chicago, up to $10,000.

Tiny actions have a mighty impact. A tiny heirloom popcorn seed, family farmed since its discovery by Samuel Kelty in the 1850s, was nearly lost forever. Fast forward generations to Samuel’s great-great-great grandson, Richard Kelty, who took the only jar left of the rare seeds, planted them and cared for them as they began to grow. Having difficulty with the yield, he hired farmer and soil consultant, Gene Mealhow, to help. Within a year of working together nurturing the seed, Richard and Gene vastly improved the yields and rescued this once nearly extinct variety. Today, Farmer Gene Mealhow continues to cultivate and nurture http://www.tinybutmightyfoods.com for all to enjoy.

Much like this tiny seed, a disadvantaged child who is nurtured and mentored is able to thrive, inspiring Tiny But Mighty Popcorn to spread the #TinyMatters Movement and donate $1 to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago for every unique share of their recent viral Facebook video receives, up to $10,000.

To help inspire others to share and join the movement, Tiny But Mighty has created the #TinyMatters Giveaway, where entrants can take action and win thousands of dollars in prizes.
