The Jeunesse EXPO9 Thrive 2018 World Tour made stops in five cities from September through November, attracting 62,500 attendees and raising $1.57 million for charity.
The tour opened in Orlando, home of Jeunesse Global, and continued on to Bangkok, Macau and Rome, with a final stop at Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro. At each event, Jeunesse Founders Randy Ray, CEO, and Wendy Lewis, COO, along with Chief Visionary Officer Scott Lewis and wife Isabel Lewis, led a special celebration of the company’s ninth anniversary, beginning at the Orlando event on Sept. 9. Jeunesse was founded at 9 p.m. Sept. 9, 2009 — a date and time chosen specifically because the number 9 represents longevity in Asian culture.
Attendees raised $1.57 million for the company’s nonprofit Jeunesse Kids™ to fund local charity initiatives in each market aimed at saving and improving the lives of children: providing access to life-saving pediatric cancer treatment, education and clean water, funding rehabilitation services for disabled children, as well as supporting programs that provide increased food security and economic opportunity.
“The 2018 World Tour truly demonstrated how our family of Jeunesse Distributors is thriving by taking action each day to change the lives of people around the world and creating a global movement with lasting impact,” said CVO Scott Lewis. “This was evident in the growth, passion and commitment I witnessed in each market and the incredible support for our mission to provide a brighter future for children.”
