Here’s a quick update I just received about Nourish the Children:

I am writing to update and thank you for all of the generous support that you have provided in our Haitian relief efforts over the past week. As you are aware, all Nourish the Children donations in January are being directed exclusively to Haiti. There is no doubt that the situation is desperate, but thanks to your generosity we are making a difference.

You will be pleased to know that we actually had 5,000 bags of VitaMeal in Haiti already when the earthquake hit. The building that the meals were stored in sustained significant damage, but thanks to the efforts of our partners at Feed the Children and the local mayor; we were able to retrieve all 5,000 bags for immediate use. We have also redirected 6,000 additional bags that were in route elsewhere that will be arriving in Haiti very soon.

At our meeting in Anaheim last week we received over $10,000 in donations to our Force for Good Foundation–100% of which will be directed to Haiti relief. These funds will be matched by the Nu Skin Force for Good Foundation and will be added to the growing value of the Force for Good Foundation earthquake relief, currently in excess of $65,000.

I invite you to get involved in the relief effort by making a VitaMeal donation through Nourish the Children. Remember that we will continue to match any contribution made through the end of January.

Thank you again for your tremendous generosity to date. If you have not donated yet I hope you will consider donating to this worthwhile cause. The people of Haiti now need our assistance more than ever.

If you have any questions about the website and how to donate, I took you through it in last night’s email/post. I really hope you’ll consider helping.

    Sounds fantastic.

    Unfortunately, when I clicked on the lynnpierce-millionsofmeals link above, I got a Google warning that malicious software had been placed on the site. Thought someone should know. . .

      Thanks for letting me know about the site problem. While we’re checking into what happened with that, here’s a direct link to donate http://budurl.com/zuay and this is the full info for the program: http://NourishTheChildren.com

      Sorry for the issues with the other site. All I can think is that with potentially 750,000 people in 49 countries having the possibility of creating a direct site to simplify the donation process, it might have looked suspicious to Google.

      But I’ve tested the budurl link and it works fine.
