Isagenix International, a global health and wellness company, ended its annual 2017 Global Celebration event in Las Vegas this week by raising more than $500,000 for Make-A-Wish through fundraising and generous customer and corporate pledges. Additionally, Isagenix and Make-A-Wish surprised Triston, a 15-year-old diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, with an onstage reveal of his wish to travel to Hawaii. Nearly 15,000 attendees witnessed as Triston and his family learned his one-true-wish would come true.
From the earliest days of Isagenix, the company wanted to ensure that it was not only financially successful, but also influential in making a difference in communities. In 2016, Isagenix contributed $960,000 in contributions to charitable causes throughout the United States.
“Contribution is truly at the core of Isagenix and having the opportunity to impact families at this level is amazing,” said Kathy Coover, the company’s co-owner and executive vice president. “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.”
Since 2012, Isagenix has contributed more than $6.8 million to Make-A-Wish, which has helped to grant more than 800 wishes to deserving children with critical illnesses in twelve countries. This year alone, the company has raised more than $2 million for Make-A-Wish. More than 550,000 customers and nearly 1,000 employees have the opportunity to contribute to Make-A-Wish on an ongoing basis through product purchase donations and payroll contributions.
