Amanda Kossoff, CEO and President of Pop for a Cause, sat down to enjoy watching a movie with her younger sister on a regular night of quarantine. She winced at the artificial yellow colored, perfluorinated compounds containing, Diacetyl infused microwavable popcorn. From that night on, she got to work, baking, taste testing, and picture taking, until she reached perfect, delicious air-popped, homade popcorn!
Amanda decided she wanted to donate every penny of profits to charitable causes to make a difference in the community, and hopefully the world! She has always recognized the importance of giving back. One example is throughout quarantine she has been working with the Covid Cadets to pick up and donate items to non profit organization "So What Else" who then distributes them to families in need. Amanda is also a competitive dancer and loves animals!
With your help, we can make a difference in the world and keep on popping our air popped popcorn, without detrimental chemicals inside of most microwavable popcorn!
