Saving Starving Children from Across the World with Plexus
People from around the world suffer from hunger, even those who live in first-world countries. For some people, the issue of hunger is still challenging to grasp. 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.
Growing up as a grandson of a Mexican immigrant and the son of a sharecropper, Christopher Pair has been through poverty and has escaped it once his father joined the army. Leaving the service, his father became a gardener to provide for the family. In the family, the supply of food was not enough to feed them right. The nutritional value of their food was also not an assurance. Recycling became one method that the family used when Christopher was still young just to have enough income for food. In exchange for some money to buy means, they traded soda cans.
Those years of uncertainty has made Christopher strive to get adequate education and go further in his career. With good health and prosperity in mind, Christopher Pair came to the direct selling industry to make a positive impact on the lives of other people. He is currently Plexus’ President of Operations and International to the direct selling company that help people choose to live healthier lives.
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. In five months, 4 million meals were donated.
With the goal of Christopher Pair to provide more than 10 million meals, its Nourish One Initiative has partnered with Mary’s Meals. Mary’s Meals is a worldwide child hunger charity that aims to feed 1.3 million children every day. The same idea applies where a purchase of Plexus Lean is equivalent to a monetary donation to the charity. Mary’s Meals has even received a $25,000 donation on January 12 from Plexus.
Mary’s Meals partners with community volunteers to create school feeding programs to 17 of the world’s most impoverished countries. Rather than begging to get a meal, children are encouraged to go to school to get a meal.
