Nourish the Children Helps Two New Countries

While our mission to improve lives is woven throughout all the aspects of Nu Skin’s business, it is particularly evident in the smiles you, our distributors, create everyday for over one hundred thousand children through the Nourish the Children initiative.   


As you may know, Nourish the Children is an initiative created and supported by Nu Skin, a for-profit company, that facilitates donations of purchased VitaMeal to non-profit partners all around the world. These charity partners then distribute VitaMeal to deserving children without charge or fees.


As director of Nourish the Children, I’m happy to say this life-saving initiative grew in the number of VitaMeal bags donated by an amazing 19.4 percent in 2010 versus 2009. In fact, we recently passed yet another impressive milestone. In January, the 210th million VitaMeal was donated, and during the last six month we have nourished an average of 107,258 children per day. Isn’t that incredible?


And now we are expanding our reach to even more areas around the world where Nourish the Children is needed. Beginning in January, VitaMeal donations by Nu Skin distributors, customers and their friends in Australia, New Zealand, New Caledonia and throughout the Pacific area are being sent to feed children in Fiji, where reports suggest that an estimated 40 percent of children are malnourished.


In addition to Fiji, we are also sending VitaMeal to Mongolia, a country in desperate need of our help. According to a recent National Nutrition Survey, one in every five Mongolian children suffers from stunted growth due to malnutrition and nearly 50 percent of children two years old and younger suffer from diseases related to vitamin deficiency.


I encourage you to commit today to feed a malnourished child. By adding a bag or two of VitaMeal to your ADR (Automatic Delivery Rewards), it will cost you a lot less than your daily soda or cup of coffee and yet it may mean the difference between life or death for a child.


Thank you for all the incredible work that you do. I am always impressed by the compassion and drive of our distributor force. You truly are a force for good.
