San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 23, 2012
NuSkin has expanded its charitable works through its Nu Skin Force For Good Foundation even more this year. In the first quarter of 2012, the foundation was able to start work on a new educational center being built in Vanua Leva Island, Fiji with the help of a new partner, Seacology; open the Nu Hope Library, which was donated to the children of Chungbuk Province in South Korea; and donate a vehicle to The Center for Children’s Mental Healthcare in Japan, which was established to help the children who were affected by the Tohoku earthquake last year. This vehicle will enable child psychiatrists to visit the children, many who were severely traumatized, on a more regular basis.
To date, the Nu Skin Foundation has donated over $900,000 in grants to charitable projects and have been able to open 10 children’s libraries (at a rate of 2 new libraries per year, since the start of the program in 2008), help 77 children receive lifesaving heart surgeries, sponsor more than $16,000 to the “Lunch Box Delivery” program, which helps to bring much needed meals to children and senior citizens in Korea, and issue 56 scholarships through the ETC scholarship program.
Nu Skin’s “Nourish the Children” initiative was also able to deliver 9,723,240 donated meals of “VitaMeal” to some of the countries that need it most, such as Russia, South Africa, Malawi, China, the Philippines, Thailand, Guatemala, Haiti, El Salvador, Fiji, as well as to impoverished areas within the United States and Canada. These charitable works are all made possible through the donations of Nu Skin customers and distributors. Nu Skin encourages their members and customers to make donations towards these works and then match whatever the amount of donations are received through their corporate match program. All in all, the first quarter of 2012 has seen an increase in donations by 11% compared to 2011, and the heads of the programs hope that this trend will continue through the rest of the year.
