"Q: How did you get involved in giving back?
A: At a relatively young age, I was involved in the rehab of my younger brothers. My brother Eric and my brother Steven, one and two years younger than me, fell into the drug trap here in the beach communities of San Diego. And I saw them eventually lose their battle to drugs. They both died. One committed suicide and one overdosed. So you know, when something like that happens to you, for me, it changed me. And I realized that I wanted to make a difference in people’s lives. I saw the world very differently after that moment. There is a lot of brokenness and I felt like I wanted to step up and make a difference”

How A Drug-Related Tragedy Inspired Transformational Thinking
BY Shawn Parr |Source: Fast Company
This article is written by a member of our expert contributor community.
In any good business, a story has to be told that resonates with the consumer. Natural High founder Jon Sundt talks about how he’s using Madison Avenue techniques to bring drug-free culture to the forefront.
What’s the ultimate goal?
Our goal is to shift and change culture to create a true, new reality for youth. Natural High wants to create a reality where a young person would go to party or concert and when offered drugs or alcohol, he or she will say, “No thanks. I’m on a natural high.” And everyone around will understand what that means and think that is cool.
Nonprofit Quarterly Features Natural High
June 25, 2012; Source: Fast Company
When targeting young people with important messages, it’s more effective to tell positive stories than it is to lecture. That’s the advice the founder of a fast-rising anti-drug nonprofit has for other organizations in a new Fast Company article.
Jon Sundt, founder of Natural High, knows the pressure young people face to be cool by using drugs. He lost two brothers to drugs: one overdosed in the back of a police car and the other’s suicide was related to drug addiction. As Sundt and his family looked for help for his brothers, they came to the conclusion that many drug prevention programs weren’t having a lasting impact on young people. The reason, he thought, was that youth are constantly bombarded by messages about how cool it is to do drugs from celebrities and their peers.
