Since becoming CEO of Herbalife Nutrition, I’ve had the privilege of traveling around the world to connect with our distributors and employees. Whenever I’m in a new city, I also try to visit our local Herbalife Family Foundation (HFF) Casa program. Without fail, I am moved and humbled by this experience. The work we do together – distributors, employees and nonprofits — to positively impact the lives of children is central to our commitment to making the world healthier and happier.
HFF is dedicated to improving the lives of children in need, ensuring equal access to nutrition, nutrition education and community support for more than 80,000 children in 130 countries. The work of the Foundation continues to expand, with the opening of Casas in three new countries in the last year – Austria, Switzerland and Ghana. And expanding our reach means even more children have the opportunity to be healthier and happier.
In honor of our company’s founder, Mark Hughes, and his dedication to giving back, we have designated February as our first annual Global Month of Purpose. It’s a time for all of us at Herbalife Nutrition to think about the positive impact we can have in the world and, importantly, to take action. Throughout the month, we will be giving of our time and resources at our HFF Casas and other nonprofits in our communities.
I truly believe we have more than just an opportunity to help others, we have a responsibility – and that responsibility is to bring those less fortunate along with us so that we all thrive. Then we are truly living our purpose.
And our purpose inspires me every day.
