Black Diamond Executive Ed Aristizabal recently visited the MORE Project in Brazil. Here's what he had to say about his touching experience.
"Fellow distributors, many of you know about Paul Meehan's MORE Miles 4 MORE Kids fundraising project. Paul will ride his bicycle from Washington D.C., to Orlando, Florida, arriving in Orlando on August 21, 2009. His goal is to raise US$50,000 to go directly to the MORE Project. Let's support Paul and his efforts by visiting www.moremiles4morekids.com and making a donation today.
"Fortunately, I just came back from the MORE Project and had the experience of a lifetime. I can't tell you how fulfilling this trip was. It was amazing to see the whole extent of the MORE Project. Most people have no idea about Mom's House, The Father's House Project, The Believer's Project, etc. Every distributor who is serious about MonaVie should make it a goal to see and experience the MORE Project firsthand.
"It's funny. I've seen all the videos; I've listened to Sergio Ponce; and, of course, Brig Hart raises money and donates to the MORE Project like a crazy man. But, there's nothing like physically going to Brazil yourself to 'touch it, feel it, and share it' (sound familiar?).
"Visiting the MORE Project has caused my passion for MonaVie to grow tremendously. I'm sure that baffles many of you. How could a Black Diamond not already have a 'full cup'? I can only compare it to having kids: Your ability to love them does not grow—it multiplies.
"I want to thank the MonaVie Executive Team for their vision and efforts to make a difference through the MORE Project. As I now tell our groups, 'We need the MORE Project.' When people join the MonaVie family and get involved and see the true heart of the company, the more likely it is that they'll remain loyal customers and distributors. They know that the fruits of their labors are making the world a better place.
"What means the most to me is now my oldest son sees an additional reason why we work this business so hard. He now has a better understanding of the sacrifices we have made to make this business work. He has come back a more mature young man and more appreciative of what we have, but also more understanding about what others don't have."
