The article focuses on Maine's entrepreneurial couple and philanthropists Katherine and Thomas Chappell. Since 2006, to help Monhegan Island in Maine, the Chappells have donated $300,000 to a trust formed to purchase houses as they come on the market. They started Tom's of Maine in 1970 with a $5,000 loan. Their newest business venture is Ramblers Way Farm and they believe that if one is serious about giving back to the world, the business and charitable aims should not be separated.
