The MORE Project Raises $73,638 at First Annual World Day of Giving
MonaVie and the MORE Project held the first annual World Day of Giving Saturday, November 30, 2013. Donors from 17 countries—Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Israel, Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Taiwan, United Kingdom and the United States—contributed a total of $73,638. Funds raised will benefit children and families living in the favelas (slums) of Brazil by providing food, shelter, education, counseling, recreation and vocational training.
The MORE Project was established in 2005 by MonaVie and has always been considered the heart of the company.
“We are truly blessed by MonaVie distributors, employees and supporters around the world who allowed our work to touch their hearts and who made the choice to contribute what they could,” said Andrea Barnes, the MORE Project Executive Director. “With this first global campaign, we exceeded our financial goal. We are truly grateful for the gifts made and for the children and families that this money will allow us to serve. Together we all make a difference.”
MonaVie and the MORE Project are making plans for next year’s MORE World Day of Giving. Donors and supporters of the MORE Project, of course, can and are encouraged to contribute to the MORE Project on a regular basis, but the World Day of Giving is a special opportunity for us to come together as a MonaVie community and focus our efforts on a worthy cause.
