Thailand Flood Relief
A message from Nu Skin:[box_light]
At Nu Skin, we are greatly concerned for the victims of the recent and tragic disaster that took place in Thailand. Beginning in late July and continuing for over two months, the floods have caused 360 reported deaths, affected over 2.3 million people, and caused damages estimated at up to 6 billion USD as of 30 October. The strong flood that hit many provinces in Thailand took hundreds of lives and left millions of families without homes and in need of help as they try to rebuild their homes.
The Nu Skin family of Ambassadors, Distributors and employees has consistently demonstrated their kindness of spirit by reaching out to the victims of tragic calamities all over the world. With the approval from the Southeast Asia Children’s Heart Fund Board Committee, the 1% commission donations of US$38,076 made by distributor donors in September 2011 will be diverted to Thailand to respond to immediate calls for relief goods in Thailand. Our Ambassadors, Distributors and staff are, likewise, generously
Despite of all local relief efforts, there is still an urgent need for extensive long-term solution for the victims of the recent tragedy in Thailand. Through your continuous great examples of being a force for good for others, Nu Skin would like to announce a VitaMeal 50+10 Matching Program.
We can do more to help: NTC VitaMeal 50+10 Matching Program
With the urgent need for food and other products in the disaster areas, we would like to announce a 50+10 VitaMeal matching donation program with immediate effect until 30 November 2011 and 31 December 2011. For every fifty bags (50) of VitaMeal collected by our helpful Ambassadors, Nu Skin Enterprises will match with ten (10) bags.
We will work to have all our VitaMeal purchases from November to December 2011 to all go to the victims in Thailand. Nu Skin Enterprises expresses its appreciation for the goodness of the Nu Skin people, as well as their concern and prayers for all the victims in these disaster-stricken areas.
The mission of Nu Skin Enterprises is centered on being a force for good throughout the world by empowering people to improve lives. Everyday, we continue to fulfill and live by this commitment.
We thank you for your help!

Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc.
The Nourish the Children initiative is Nu Skin’s solution to provide a consistent and growing supply of nourishing food to the world’s most needy children and families. This simple concept succeeds by selling a highly nutritious food— VitaMeal®—and then helping people donate their purchases to third-party nonprofit organizations that specialize in distributing food to those suffering from malnutrition and famine.
The primary charity partner for Nourish the Children is Feed The Children, one of the largest international charities in the United States, which specializes in distributing millions of pounds of food each year to families in more than 60 countries. This charity partner distributes the donated VitaMeal at NO ADDITIONAL COSTS and provides regular reports documenting the receipt of food by those in need.
By DONATING PRODUCT RATHER THAN CASH, donors know exactly how their contribution is being used and can be assured that their donation is making a difference in the lives of children and families. In some countries, donors receive a receipt for tax purposes from the charity partner for their in-kind donation of VitaMeal.*
* This is an in-kind not a cash donation. Furthermore, your donation may be subject to additional reporting requirements under the Internal Revenue Code. Please consult your tax advisor regarding the deductibility for your donations and any additional reporting requirements.
VitaMeal: More than a Meal
Malnourished children are missing KEY NUTRIENTS in their diets, which can hinder brain, bone, and immune system development. Most humanitarian food aid is grain, such as corn, which may lack certain essential nutrients for HEALTHY DEVELOPMENT.
VitaMeal is SPECIALLY FORMULATED FOR MALNOURISHED CHILDREN* or family use and produced by Nu Skin — a company with extensive experience in nutrition. Working with an expert in child malnutrition in third-world countries, Nu Skin developed VitaMeal to provide:
VitaMeal is vegetarian and non-dairy and halal, and allows for the easy addition of ingredients to fit every taste and culture. Each VitaMeal package (2.4kg rice and lentil meals) contains 30 child-sized meals, or enough food to provide a child with one nutritious meal each day for a month.
• Contains a balance of carbohydrates, protein, fat and fiber.
• Provides essential fatty acids required for normal brain development,
skin health and immune defense.
• Provides electrolytes necessary for maintaining normal fluid balance
and muscle function.
• includes 25 essential vitamins and minerals.
• Provides Vitamin a, which is essential for normal sight and
• Provides bone nutrients for normal growth and skeletal development.
• allows for easy addition of ingredients to fit every taste and culture.
• is vegetarian and non-dairy
Meet The People
Virtually every disaster-stricken country in the world has hungry children and family members, but Nourish the Children VitaMeal donations are delivered to places WHERE PEOPLE NEED IT MOST.
The Nu Skin Force for Good Foundation responds not only to malnourished children, but also to disasters around the world in an effort to provide relief for those in need.
To contribute Vitameal
Each Vitameal package (2.4kg rice and lentil meal) costs S$40 only. That is equivalent to saving $1.33 per day for a month! That’s like the price of a 3-piece nugget?
Each Vitameal bag contains 30 sized meals, or enough food to provide a person with one nutritious meal each day for a month.
For the total donations from all donors managed by each Ambassador from 01 November 2011 to 31 December 2011, Nu Skin matches 10 bags for every 50 bags collectively purchased, collected and donated each month. All Vitameal bags raised will directly delivered to Thailand for these 2 months!
Together, I hope to raise 1000 bags within these 2 months!
