Sometimes need appears in the face of a stranger. But when you look at them in their eyes, you’ll always recognize it. And once you see a need, it’s up to you to respond. At times that’s giving a gift – even a smile of understanding – at times it’s lending a hand. It’s this type of realization that led Youngevity International to create the Youngevity Be the Change Foundation.
In developing the foundation, we looked for inspiration to Ghandi’s admonition that “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” In those words we see both a call to philanthropy and a call to action. In that spirit, we’ve made the Be the Change Foundation into a grassroots, action-oriented movement. We tackle both big initiatives and impromptu opportunities, heeding Ronald Reagan’s observation that “We can’t help everyone, but anyone can help someone.”
Our family of distributors, customers and employees come together to help in whatever ways we can. We are being the change in the many communities in which we live – in the many moments in which it’s needed. It’s the heart of what sets Youngevity apart in the industry as a total body, mind and spirit transformation company.
Will you join us? You can move our mission forward by volunteering with one of our charitable partners, by finding and sharing your own random acts of kindness, or by simply purchasing any of our Be the Change products (100 percent of the profit generated from the purchase of these products is donated directly to the foundation). When we give of ourselves and become the change we want to see, we can build a bridge of hope to those in need.
