Meet the Captain,
Angie Hartel

As a dedicated wife to her high school sweetheart – a 4th generation cattle rancher – and mom to 5 kids in western North Dakota, Angie Hartel has always been purpose-driven.

She believes in leading by example, which is why the whole family is on board with making charitable work part of their daily lives . They’re regularly involved in helping with their church, and working with groups like Feed My Starving Children, Compassion International, and other nonprofits.

But for her there was always a sense of wanting to do more to reach out and reduce suffering in underdeveloped countries.

To truly make a difference…

How Anchored Purpose Began

It was a church mission trip to Haiti in 2016, and the profoundly saddening experience of seeing crib after crib of malnourished babies in a Port-au-Prince hospital, that proved to be a revelation.

Angie’s initial shock and anger that deprivation like this could exist right on the doorstep of the United States gave way to an understanding of a larger problem:

Most people in America just aren’t aware that starvation in underdeveloped countries is still an ongoing problem today – and that they can do something!

She made it her purpose-driven mission to raise funds for vulnerable communities and underdeveloped countries the world over, while also raising awareness of their plight.

With a love of learning about different cultures and inspired by Hebrews 6:19, she created Anchored Purpose Box as a way to empower people to do more for underdeveloped countries from anywhere in the world.

“We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.”

Hebrews 6:19
