Courtney Brockmeyer wants to make a difference, one backpack and one child at a time. The former Nestle executive quit her six-figure job on May 31 to start a company named Sydney Paige Inc. that, not unlike Toms Shoes or Patagonia, gives back to its customers. The idea is simple.

The business model hasn't made all that much money since the La Cañada Flintridge mother of two began her company in December.
