About Us

As the Founder and CEO of a Superfood company, Thierry Ollivier has always based his business activities on principles in line with his personal philanthropic mission: helping children around the world. The sales model “one for one” generating meals for children in Haiti that his company implemented attests to it.

Regular business travels to the Sacred Valley of Peru gave him the opportunity to evaluate the desperate needs for medical care that families living in the area had and consequently engage in a support program through a local clinic that his company sponsors. Friendships with local families in the program have also been built on the numerous visits that Thierry and his wife Maïa pay them every time their travels take them to Peru.


When their daughter Lou suddenly passed away, it was only natural that in their desire to honor their little princess Thierry and Maïa would chose to continue even further the mission that they had set for themselves. Lou’s short life was carefree, happy, and filled with love and they wanted that for as many children as possible. They decided to channel all the love and support they were receiving in such trying times and create Tierra’s Angels, a foundation that would help as many children as possible in the world.


Our Organization

TIERRA’S ANGELS was founded in 2017 in memory of our daughter Lou. Thanks to the generosity of our friends and partners, we collected enough funds to support projects in Peru and Haiti, two countries that were relevant to us, both personally and professionally. Later on, we decided to add Los Angeles as one of our focus areas, as it is where we live with our sons.
