Isagenix International, a global leader in health and wellness products and solutions, recently celebrated its 2nd annual Global Give Back Day.
The corporate-created event took place across the world, in the company’s 13 markets, with employees and customers giving back to their local communities and environment. Isagenix organized activities such as public park, beach and schoolyard clean-ups; tree plantings; blood drives; charity walks; meal preparations for the less fortunate; volunteering at orphanages and homeless shelters; and more.
“Our Isagenix family of employees and customers is constantly looking for ways to give back and make an impact,” said Erik Coover, Isagenix Owner and Senior Vice President of Global Field Development. “While we strive to make a positive impact on the world every single day, we created Global Give Back Day as a focused effort to give back to our local communities and to our Earth all over the world in the most powerful way.”
Many customers who participated in the event are also members of a popular Isagenix affinity group called START. The START Your Life movement invites young people ages 18–35 to be part of a community built on a foundation of integrity, contribution and growth. With nearly 70,000 participants, the group is made up of passionate Isagenix Members striving to lead extraordinary lives while helping others do the same.
“Isagenix is the largest company headquartered in Gilbert, Arizona, and a key economic driver in the United States and across the globe,” said Cheryl Lewis, Isagenix Vice President of Corporate Affairs. “In 2016, our business generated total output of $2.5 billion while impacting the U.S. GDP by over $1.5 billion and creating an employment impact of nearly 13,500 jobs in the U.S. alone. As a good corporate citizen, we have a responsibility to continue impacting not only our economy, but our global environment and communities as well.”
