Isagenix Donates More Than $6.8 million to Make-A-Wish
Global Health and Wellness Company Isagenix International ended its 2017 Global Celebration event held in Las Vegas this week by raising and donating, through customer and corporate pledges and fundraising, more than $500,000 to Make-A-Wish. Isagenix and Make-A-Wish also surprised a 15 year-old boy diagnosed with cystic fibrosis named Triston by making his wish of travelling to Hawaii come true live on stage in front of his family and the rest of the nearly 15,000 others in attendance.
The company has always ensured that they don’t just become financially successful but that they are also influential when it comes to charity work even from its earliest days. In fact, in 2016, they contributed a total of $960,000 to charities across the United States.
Isagenix co-owner and executive vice president Kathy Coover had this to say: “Contribution is truly at the core of Isagenix and having the opportunity to impact families at this level is amazing.” “Our organization gives back to many different charitable and civic causes; however, the one closest to my heart is Make-A-Wish because it brings hope to children and families in their most critical time.” She further added.
Isagenix has donated more than $6.8 million since 2016 to Make-A –Wish. This contribution has led to the granting of more than 800 wishes to kids with critical illnesses from over twelve countries. The company has raised more than $2 million for Make-A-Wish this year alone and nearly a thousand of its employees and 550,000 customers have the opportunity to continue to contribute through payroll contributions and purchase donations.
