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. Reality-wise, no matter where you live, there will always be families and children who are not sure when and where they can get their next meal. Christopher Pair, president of Plexus, knows the implications of world hunger. He is the man he is today by suffering through child hunger growing up.
Christopher Pair was the grandson of a Mexican immigrant and the son of a sharecropper where joining the military on the part of his father has saved them from poverty. He then left the service and provided for his family as a gardener. In the past, there was not enough food that is offered to all members of the family. 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 order for them to buy meals, they needed to trade soda cans with money.
To get a better life for himself and for his family based on those years of not being sure when they will eat their next meals, Christopher sought education and career opportunities. Adding emphasis to prosperity and good health, Christopher Pair came to the direct selling industry prepared to change lives for the better. 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.
Changing the lives of other people is what Christopher Pair has become dedicated to. He joined Plexus because of their goal to help other people overcome health challenges. Because of their focus on nutrition and health, Plexus and Christopher Pair are finding ways to provide an end to world hunger.
In the year 2018 of June, Feeding America became partners with Plexus to help end world hunger. The partnership intends to make a positive and long-term impact on world hunger. The Nourish One Initiative by Plexus is meant to feed 14 meals to be given to Feeding America for each Plexus Lean product as a monetary donation. In five months, 4 million meals were 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. Mary’s Meals is a worldwide child hunger charity that aims to feed 1.3 million children every day. For every purchase of Plexus Lean product that you make, a monetary donation will go 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.
