About us

Kristen Bell, Ryan Devlin, Todd Grinnell, and Ravi Patel founded This Saves Lives with a mission to end severe acute malnutrition.

Just a little idea to change the world...

While on a humanitarian trip in Liberia, Ryan and Todd found themselves face-to-face with children suffering from severe acute malnutrition. They weren’t just hungry, they lacked the vitamins and minerals needed to stay alive.

During that same visit, Ryan and Todd found out about Plumpy’Nut, a therapeutic food specifically formulated to rehabilitate children suffering from severe acute malnutrition. They called Ravi and Kristen to make a plan to get as much of this life-saving food as possible to the kids who need it most, and the rest is history!
