Message from Dallin Larsen: Spirit of MonaVie Is Alive and Well "Down Under"
Dear MonaVie Family,
As I write this, I am in Sydney, Australia. Soon, we depart for the Grand Opening of MonaVie in Japan. The Japan event, as you are probably already aware, is sold out. It's undoubtedly going to be a huge success, setting a foundation for great success in Japan over the coming months and years.
Today, I want each of you to know how proud I am of MonaVie. Our culture of being lifters of others was evidenced again this week in Melbourne and Sydney, Australia. Brush fires over the past 10 days have tragically taken the lives of several hundred Australian citizens in the state of Victoria, Australia. This is the single most devastating natural disaster in Australia in more than 100 years. The stories of lost dreams and shattered families leave me broken-hearted. However, the silver lining here is that at our Regional in Melbourne last Saturday, with the fires burning not too far from the city, we raised a total of $60,000.
If I've learned anything from my Aussie friends through my many trips to their beautiful country, I've learned that Australians have a spirit that is impossible to keep down for long. They will pull through this challenge as they always do, and, in the end, the Australian spirit will once again prevail.
You should be proud that the spirit of MonaVie is alive and well in Australia. It was humbling to witness the generous outpouring that took place in Melbourne and Sydney this week. This is the spirit of MonaVie and the culture I believed we could create together. I couldn't be more proud of each of you.
In honor of those who lost their lives in this tragedy, we created a short compilation of photos set to music. Click here to view photos.
MonaVie continues to lift people to new heights as our message of health and freedom spreads throughout Australia and New Zealand and other parts of the globe. Millions have yet to hear our message, but eventually they will. Together, we will be a beacon of light in an increasingly turbulent and troublesome world. MonaVie is becoming known as the company that provides a safe harbor from the storm and a home where people's dreams are still becoming a reality!
Humbled in Australia,
