Nu Skin Enterprises Inc. on Monday celebrated a company-wide Force for Good Day with a number of humanitarian projects around the world.
Utah-based Nu Skin started the annual tradition 13 years ago, dedicating the day to projects that improve the lives of children, in keeping with the mission of the Nu Skin Force for Good Foundation. This year the beauty and wellness company also celebrated two decades of giving back, which began in a formal capacity with the launch of its Epoch-branded products.
“In 1996, we launched the Epoch product line and designated a portion of each Epoch product sale to be donated to various charitable organizations,” said Truman Hunt, President and CEO. “Since then, we have greatly expanded our reach and efforts to bring hope to children worldwide.”
The Force for Good Foundation focuses broadly on health, education, economic opportunity and disaster relief. Nu Skin aims to help children in these areas through projects such as the School of Agriculture for Family Independence, where the people of Malawi can learn better agricultural techniques to provide for themselves, and the Nu Hope Library Project, which has remodeled 16 libraries in rural areas of South Korea.
On Force for Good Day, the company intensifies its efforts by focusing on specific needs within the communities where it operates. A few of this year’s projects included a massive clothing drive in Greater China, donating clothes and toys to two orphanages in the Netherlands, and assembling 10,000 lunches for children in need at Nu Skin’s corporate headquarters.
