Plexus: Feeding Starving Children and Saving Lives
Hunger is an issue that is happening all across the globe. When it comes to some people, hunger is an issue that seems impossible to think about. The issue of when and where the next meal will come in is a common dilemma for a lot of families and children. The issue of world hunger is a topic that Plexus president Christopher Pair is well aware of. He is the man he is today by suffering through child hunger growing up.
Being the grandson of a Mexican immigrant and the son of a sharecropper, poverty is something that he has been through and has only escaped when their father joined the military. To provide for the family, his father left the service and became a gardener. In the past, there was not enough food that is offered to all members of the family. Their food supply also only have little nutritional value. As a young boy, Christopher and his family had to look for other ways to pay for food such as recycling. They traded soda cans for money so they can buy meals.
Having experienced years of uncertainty, Christopher made it his mission to obtain proper education to further his career. The direct selling industry is the place that Christopher Pair came to attain prosperity and good health and change the lives of others. A direct selling company that focuses on people living healthier lives, Plexus Worldwide has appointed Christopher Pair to be its President of Operations and International.
Christopher Pair has long dedicated his life to helping other people. Plexus has the goal of letting people overcome their challenges that is why he joined this company. With the joined efforts of achieving health and nutrition, both Plexus and Christopher Pair are moving forward to provide nourishment to people who are suffering from hunger.
In June 2018, Plexus partnered with Feeding America to feed people who are suffering from hunger. The partnership intends to make a positive and long-term impact on world hunger. Their Nourish One initiative is where every time you buy a Plexus Lean product from them, 14 meals as equivalent in a monetary donation will go to Feeding America. For five months, 4 million meals have been donated.
Owing to the fact that Christopher Pair still wants to reach more than 10 million meal donations, their Nourish One Initiative has partnered internationally with Mary’s Meals. Each day, 1.3 million must be fed by the international child hunger charity you call Mary’s Meals. For every purchase of Plexus Lean product that you make, a monetary donation will go to the charity. Plexus has even made an initial $25,000 donation to Mary’s Meals on the 12th of January.
With 17 of the world’s most impoverished countries, Mary’s Meals set up feeding programs at school with some community volunteer help. This helps encourage children to go to school to get a meal than beg to get one.
