Haiti VitaMeal Donation Update

***See bottom of this post for the direct link to donate without being in the company***

I received this great news of what your donations, as one of my subscribers, have helped to accomplish. It comes directly from the company I work with on this VitaMeal program, so I’m posting their message to me here for you:

Following the devastating earthquake in Haiti, the Nu Skin family has demonstrated its force for good culture with an outpouring of support for those affected by the tragedy. On behalf of Nu Skin Enterprises, we want to thank our distributors and employees for their generous donations of VitaMeal and monetary contributions to the Nu Skin Force for Good Foundation. To date, the company and its distributors are donating more than $1 million in cash and product to the Haiti relief efforts.

The Nourish the Children Initiative

Our charity partner, Feed the Children (FTC) has been working through their network to get VitaMeal to those in need as quickly as possible. In fact, the more than 150,000 meals that were at the FTC medical clinic were pulled from the damaged building and have already been distributed to those in need. Another 180,000 meals will arrive in Haiti this week and will be distributed from six locations to earthquake victims. Over 200,000 additional meals are being delivered each week to FTC for delivery to projects in Haiti where they are feeding about 15,000 people every day. We are pleased that Nu Skin’s Greater China region, an area that has also suffered from the devastation of an earthquake, has also earmarked all of its January VitaMeal purchases, along with an additional corporate donation of product, to the relief efforts.

Because of your generous donations we expect to provide more than 1.5 million meals for Haiti by the end of February. And we will continue to send monthly shipments of VitaMeal to this earthquake ravaged country on an ongoing basis. VitaMeal was in Haiti before the earthquake and VitaMeal will be there for the long term.

For more information on the Nourish the Children initiative or to purchase and donate a bag of VitaMeal (30 meals; US$22) please visit http://budurl.com/VitaMeal . We appreciate the generous donations of our distributor force to meet the disaster relief needs in Haiti which are above and beyond our ongoing VitaMeal distribution projects around the world including in China, the Philippines and Malawi.

I am happy to answer any question you have about this program or help you make a donation of 1 bag or 100 bags. It’s up to you. You can also pass this information along to help spread the word. We have a matching program in place that starts with an extra bag for every 5 bag donation and goes from there. So every little bit helps.

Thank you for caring!

And thanks to Steve Pohlit for posting on his blog!  http://manifestmastermindblog.com/2010/02/new-version-we-are-the-world-to-help-haiti/

***FYI: Use this link  http://budurl.com/VitaMeal to donate directly. There isn’t a link on the NTC site that will work for you because you need to fill in a sponsorship number. http://NourishTheChildren.com has information on the complete worldwide program and is not specific to Haiti. You will need to create a customer account and it does not commit you to anything but this one-time donation. If you are interested in donating on a monthly basis, please contact me using the “contact us” form on this site.***

      Hi Cyril,
      There is still an urgent need for food in Haiti and things could become much more dire as we head into hurricane season, so please continue to donate to this program or any others that you choose.
      Lynn
