The Direct Selling Association recently honored Nu Skin’s corporate social responsibility efforts with the 2015 Vision for Tomorrow ETHOS Award, but U.S. peers are not the only ones taking note of the Nu Skin’s humanitarian work.
The personal-care and wellness brand recently earned honors in Asia for its contributions through the Nu Skin Force for Good Foundation. The foundation aims to help children by supplying healthcare, nutrition, education and economic opportunity. By the close of 2014, Nu Skin’s Nourish the Children initiative had donated more than 400 million meals to impoverished children. The company also contributes to disaster relief efforts around the world.
For the sixth consecutive year, national newspaper China Philanthropy Times has named Nu Skin Greater China one of the country’s Top 10 Charity Enterprises. Additional recognition came from the China Foundation for Disabled Persons, which presented Nu Skin its highest honor, the Charity Diamond Award, for the company’s support of the disabled.
In Korea, Nu Skin earned a Silver Stevie Award in the Corporate Social Responsibility category for its Nu Hope Libraries initiative. Since 2008, the company has remodeled 16 libraries in rural areas and stocked them with educational supplies to further children’s education.
