A recent Herbalife leadership event raised $1.7 million to provide critical nutrition to children around the world.
The annual Herbalife Honors event held this month in Charlotte, North Carolina, included a gala in support of the Herbalife Family Foundation. As the charitable arm of Herbalife, HFF helps organizations provide healthy nutrition to vulnerable youth. During the fundraiser, employees and top distributors contributed $1.7 million to Casa Herbalife, the primary initiative of the foundation.
“I am always touched and amazed by the financial and volunteering generosity demonstrated by our employees and our independent distributors,” said Jenny Perez, Director of the Herbalife Family Foundation. “The money raised tonight and throughout the year by the HFF supports organizations around the world that are dedicated to improving children’s lives.”
Casa Herbalife was created in 2005 as a means to partner with other, likeminded organizations. The program provides annual financial grants to orphanages, after-school centers and nonprofits supplying balanced nutrition to children. These partners also receive financial and volunteer support from local Herbalife distributors.
Last year, Casa Herbalife provided more than $2.7 million in funding to programs in more than 50 countries. That amounts to more than 100,000 children receiving nutrition on a daily basis. In addition, company employees volunteered more than 2,670 hours in their local communities.
