We have an amazing program but you know what, we’re not done. Our vision is so much bigger and that’s why we need your help.
South Jordan, Utah (PRWEB) October 29, 2014
MonaVie and the MORE Project are pleased to announce the second annual World Day of Giving to take place Saturday, November 1, 2014.
This is a day that the company's distributors, brand promoters, employees, friends and supporters in Utah and around the world can unite and give what they can on behalf of the children and families in need who benefit from MORE Project funds.
To commemorate this day, the MORE Project will be holding a Brazilian celebration event from 5–8 p.m., Saturday, November 1, at MonaVie’s Corporate Headquarters, 10855 S. Riverfront Parkway, South Jordan, Utah. Everyone is invited to this event where there will be:
- Brazilian food
- Dances and musicians
- Capoeira performance
- Jewelry and other items for sale
- Games and family activities
- Silent auction
The MORE Project, founded by MonaVie and funded by MonaVie and distributor donations, operates in five of the favelas (slums) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where chaos and indecent surroundings reign. To give you a visual, growing up in the favelas entails…
- Open sewers in your backyard and no running water
- Little opportunity to properly wash daily
- Chronic hunger
- Violence stemming from police actions or gang wars
- Abuse in the home
- Having to choose between the offer of sex for money or not eating
The MORE Project’s goal is to transform the next generation by eradicating poverty and conflict present in these undeserved communities, such as violence, drugs, early pregnancy, child prostitution, abandonment and school delay. The MORE Project instills in each child the assurance that their life is valuable and that they can rise above their surroundings. We provide this optimistic feeling in many different ways.

Our vision is so much bigger and that’s why we need your help.”
