In June of 2018, sales leaders, employees, customers, and volunteers from more than 20 countries worked together to make the world a better place and improve the lives of children by celebrating Nu Skin’s annual Force for Good Day.
Nu Skin Canada employees raised awareness of the Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) disease and provided comfort to affected families as they hosted their annual Good Butterfly Day event at the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory.
The Nu Skin Latin America team organized a free eye screening for children.
Nu Skin and its employees partnered with United Way of Utah County and Provo City to paint, clean, and beautify nearly 15 local elementary schools and city parks.
Europe, Middle East and Africa
Nu Skin employees enjoyed a spirited walking/biking competition with each other to raise money to purchase clothing and food for children in need.
A series of activities were organized, and money collected from the events went to children in need.
Nu Skin employees crocheted stuffed animals for children at hospitals across Denmark. Those animals were given to premature babies in neonatal wards, children with long-term illnesses, or children visiting emergency rooms.
Each year, children in need are gifted boxes containing toys, food, and other supplementary products.
Nu Skin employees sold baked goods and the donations collected went to purchase necessary items for an orphanage in Romania.
Nu Skin South Africa hosted a charity event for the Kids Haven Orphanage, which cares for more than 150 orphans. The market also donated additional funds to upgrade the facility.
Nu Skin employees cleaned, painted a playground, and hosted a picnic for the children on the grounds of a local orphanage.
Sales leaders and employees collected more than 1,400 books for children in Taiwan who lack reading resources. Employees also read books to disabled children.
The team held two events focused on caring for underprivileged elders and students. Nu Skin employees and sales leaders showed love to the elders by giving them “hearty rice dumplings” and spreading joy. The second event encouraged sales leaders and employees to donate books to students from low income families. More than 200 books were donated to the students.
A “green” initiative was launched on Force for Good Day in China that encouraged sales leaders and employees to be eco-friendly. All of the Nu Skin stores in mainland China accepted empty Nu Skin® product plastic bottles to recycle. For every 10 plastic bottles the sales leaders turned in at EXPOs, they were rewarded with a souvenir made from recycled material. In 2018, 538,477 empty bottles had been recycled, which saved the energy equivalent to 196,052.24 kWh.
In addition, throughout the month of June, Nu Skin Greater China collected books, toys, and stationery. More than 29,000 items were distributed to children who live in poverty.
