The founder of Touchstone Essentials and its related foundation, Eddie Stone believes in giving back to his local community of Raleigh, North Carolina. Funded by sales of nutritional supplements, the Touchstone Essentials Foundation supports many local nonprofits that operate programs benefiting children. Eddie Stone prioritizes proper nutrition for children, because he understands that eating well serves as the basis for success in academics and other parts of life. Separately, the foundation has assisted with efforts to ensure that children receive holiday gifts through The Salvation Army.Aside from his charitable foundation, Mr. Stone participates in numerous leisure activities. An avid snowboarder, he enjoys working out and cultivating a healthy lifestyle. He reads regularly, appreciates listening to music, and spends time with his family. Auto racing is another hobby of his. Professionally, Mr. Stone leads Touchstone Essentials, a network marketing company that sells nutritional supplements crafted from organic whole foods. In establishing his firm, he sought to implement production processes that retained significant amounts of natural vitamins. He realized that fresh fruits and vegetables serve as better nutritional sources than many of the processed foods on which a majority of Americans rely. Today, Touchstone employs cold-processing techniques to create its supplements. In this way, the firm stands apart from its competitors, who often rely on industrial operations and manufacture incomplete supplements. Previously, Mr. Stone graduated from North Carolina State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management. He went on to enter the construction field before becoming a Distributor for Nu Skin and Rexall Showcase International. At Rexall, he notably became one of the company's top 25 earners.
