Support our work by inviting others to read On That Day, Everybody Ate, a beautiful book written by Founder, Margaret Trost. All of Margaret’s profits go to What If. With each new reader, the word about the What If? Foundation spreads.

This small, polished gem of a book is one compelling answer to many questions about how to inject meaning in our lives….”  –from the foreword by Dr. Paul Farmer, Partners In Health

Margaret writes about her experiences in Haiti, the birth of the food program that now serves meals to thousands of hungry children in Port-au-Prince each week, and the extraordinary journey that led her and the What If? Foundation to where they are today.

“Since my first visit to Port-au-Prince in 2000, I felt moved to write about my experience as a way to raise awareness about Haiti.  I’m so grateful for the wonderful response this book has received.  My Haitian friends and colleagues have taught me so much about faith, courage, and love, and this book shares their wisdom and inspiration as well as the remarkable story of the special partnership between members of the Ti Plas Kazo community and the What If? Foundation.”      — Margaret Trost
