"Let`s Truly Make a Difference in Japan"

Truman Hunt Challenges Nu Skin to raise 100 million Yen


Dear Nu Skin Family Members and Friends,


     Since Nu Skin’s inception, our mission has been to be a force for good in the world. Today we have an opportunity to step forward and truly make a difference in Japan. Last Friday we all watched with grave concern as the Japan earthquake and resulting tsunami left incredible devastation in their wake. Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with those affected by this tragedy.


     Yet, in the aftermath of this natural disaster, there is much for which we can be grateful. Thankfully, within the areas most impacted, we have confirmed that there have been no distributor leaders or Nu Skin employees who have suffered significant personal loss. We also continue to reach out to our broader distributor force around Japan to assess the damage. Undoubtedly, there are members of the Nu Skin family who have been significantly affected.


     We are also grateful for the unwavering dedication of Nu Skin Japan employees, many of whom could not make it home for as long as two days after the earthquake. Our local team is rallying together to bring our Tokyo operations back up and running. 


     As we have communicated with our Japan management team, we have determined that the best way to provide immediate relief is to contribute funds that can be quickly allocated to worthy relief efforts. Given the severely weakened infrastructure in Japan, other forms of assistance such as VitaMeal donations will not reach the disaster areas quickly enough to make an immediate difference. However, as we continue to look at extending our relief efforts to Japan and other disaster areas, we will need to increase our VitaMeal reserves in the coming months.


     Our immediate goal is to raise 100 million Yen (approximately US$1.2 million) for the relief efforts. We would like to achieve this goal by the end of the month. Any additional donations to the Nu Skin Force for Good Foundation in the month of April will also be allocated to help those affected by the Japan earthquake.


     In addition to this immediate relief effort, we are also developing a plan for the Nu Skin family to support specific Nu Skin distributors who have been impacted. We will communicate with you on this effort in the upcoming weeks.


     Please join us in demonstrating the Nu Skin difference by participating in this relief effort. Contributions can be made to the Nu Skin Force for Good Foundation (a non-profit charity) in the following ways:


1) Online at www.forceforgood.org

Under the ‘Giving’ tab, you may contribute via international credit card (i.e. American Express, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, etc.)

Attn: Japan Disaster Relief


     Let me thank you for your participation and for enabling us to join together to be a force for good by providing urgent relief to those in Japan who are in extreme need.  Distributor leaders in Japan have generously supported Nu Skin’s force for good efforts for many years. Their generosity has been used primarily to support force for good causes outside of Japan. We now have an opportunity to reciprocate the generosity of Japan’s distributors.
