Reflections from Carly, USANA Director and recent service trip attendee

Meet Carly Dow- USANA Director I grew up listening to music —mostly country classics and modern pop crossovers, but have recently broadened my horizons with various genres. Despite the type, I love the unique sound of each artist’s voice and the power, poise, presence, and unmistakable message that backs each song. Each song tells a story, reminding us of a profound moment or memory and I’d like to share one with you. Vicente Guerrero, Mexico November 27th, 2016 was the day I embarked on a journey that would completely alter my understanding of poverty. I had seen poverty, but never to  ...

STARTING THEM YOUNG

Meet our youngest donor yet- Eva! At only 10 years old, Eva is rocking the boat with her donating game! I mean we all probably attended a Halloween party or two, but how many of us can say that we raised enough money to provide 848 meals for people in need internationally while we were at it? Probably not many of us, but Eva sure can!  Last Halloween, she hosted a special party, where she requested that her friends bring donations. In exchange, she created goody bags  and baked sugarless blood cookies which she gave to her guests. Once she collected these donations, Eva chose to give them  ...

I am sure we each have someone we look up to for one reason or the other in life. From career, to family life, to personality, among other things. That said, have you ever met someone who inspires you just by who they are and what they stand for? Like, before they even DO anything?! Well, Dr. Foo is one of those for me.

Last weekend, Dr. Foo took a team down to a northern Malaysian village that  ...

Meet Dah, John and David

Dah Moo moved to Australia four years ago after living in a refugee camp for years. She wanted to give her sons the best chance at a better future, yet there was barely enough to pay the rent and bills- let alone fund their education and provide them with the right kinds of support in their transition. She reached out to our partner, The Smith Family, who then connected them with some of the services that the Foundation provides funding for. The boys now attend learning clubs, where a safe environment is provided outside of school hours for at-risk children to work with trained tutors.  ...
