Isagenix International recently held its first-ever Global Give Back Day, led by the company’s START group of young entrepreneurs.
Ahead of the event, which took place May 7, Isagenix challenged its employees and Associates to focus on giving back in their communities for the day. Volunteers could find a local project through a designated events page or collaborate with others on the START Facebook page to organize their own.
In all, the health and wellness company said that its START members—Associates ages 18-35—led humanitarian projects in nine countries across the Americas and Asia, where Isagenix operates.
“I had goosebumps all day as I realized what was happening,” said Erik Coover, Isagenix Senior Vice President of Global Field Development. “There’s nothing more powerful than a movement that’s rooted in contribution. That’s why the START movement and Isagenix are so powerful.”
The largest initiative took place at the company’s new world headquarters in Gilbert, Arizona, where more than 100 employees and customers gathered. The group donated blood, collected 450 pounds of food, and created 300 activity packets for patients at the Phoenix Children’s Hospital, among other projects.
