Happy National Philanthropy Day, guys! We want to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU for all that you do to support the Foundation. This year alone, we have been able to do so much good for the world, and it’s all because of YOU! From relief efforts in Mexico during the earthquake, to Puerto Rico and Texas after the hurricanes, and not to mention the hundreds of thousands of meals provided for those in need worldwide- you have supported a tremendous amount of good.
Stories like the one below warm our hearts every time we hear them, because they remind us of just how grateful we have to have the support of donors that allow this kind of work to continue.
In the Mariscal Gamarra District of Peru, many recipients of food paks travel three hours or more to receive food and Usanimals. While some travel on horseback, and many come on foot- all receiving food paks with joy.
One of these Food Pak recipients, Margarita, is from the community of Cruzpata, in the district of Mariscal Gamarra. Before participating in the Food Pak program, her life was falling apart. She and her husband struggled with alcohol addiction, and as a result, did not work, leaving their farm unattended. They were extremely poor.
When Margarita became seriously ill, her sister encouraged her to reach out to our local volunteers. Receiving a consistent supply of nutritious food, Margarita’s health began to improve drastically, to the point where she was now able to turn things around for her and her household. She has now overcome her alcohol addiction, and her husband and her have both joined the local team of volunteers in serving and inspiring others.
It is because of you that people like Margarita have a second chance at making things right and can now turn around and extend that to others in their community. The Foundation is so grateful for your support. Click here to join us in changing the world, one day at a time, today.
Remember, 100 percent of all donations made to the USANA True Health Foundation ALWAYS go toward changing lives across the world.
