How Reverse The Curse Started
Reverse The Curse Micro exists to help hardworking entrepreneurs enrich their lives and lift themselves out of poverty in Chicago and developing nations, specifically the Dominican Republic and Haiti, by giving them dairy goats and technical training to start their own business. We are also providing those in need with technical training and seeds to start their own vegetable gardens.
Founded by Jeremy Freeman, Reverse The Curse is an impact driven company that began on April 1, 2011. What started as a fun campaign to cure the Billy Goat Curse on the Chicago Cubs has quickly morphed into something much larger; a movement to reverse the curse of poverty and hunger both in Chicago and beyond.
We have worked with global companies including Starbucks and State Farm to grow our herd and impact entrepreneurs in Chicago and around the world. We have been featured on Oprah, CNN, World Vision Magazine, ESPN Magazine, TMZ, WGN News, CCLTV, World Breaking News.
Since it’s inception on April 1, 2011, Reverse The Curse has given hundreds of dairy goats and chickens to impoverished families in developing nations through the non-profit World Vision. We have also provided 200 backpacks filled with school supplies to the students at the Lake View High School and 450 books to children in Old Town.
Moving forward, Reverse The Curse will be collaborating with an institution that provides technical cooperation for agriculture in the U.S., Dominican Republic and Haiti to develop goat breeding centers, vegetable gardens, and chicken farms for small producers. Our technical partner is an agency of the Inter-American System for the promotion of agriculture and rural well-being, and their efforts are fully focused on making agriculture competitive and sustainable.
