During its Celebration 2015 salesforce convention this week, Isagenix International continued its annual tradition of raising funds for charitable partner Make-A-Wish. Associates and employees attending the San Diego event pledged more than $565,000 to grant wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions.
Arizona-based Isagenix has been supporting children’s charities for the past 11 years, to the tune of $6.2 million. Since partnering with Make-A-Wish in 2012, the health and wellness company has donated more than $3 million to the charity, helping to grant more than 425 wishes. In 2013, Isagenix received Make-A-Wish America’s prestigious Cause Champion Award for its outstanding contributions.
At this year’s Celebration, the crowd of 15,000 witnessed firsthand a wish come true for Tanika Hahn, a 10-year-old battling leukemia. Isagenix and Make-A-Wish staged a wish reveal for the young girl, who requested a backyard makeover complete with a zipline, stage, foam pit, and other play areas to help her stay active while undergoing treatments.
