2010 Anaheim Regional Meeting Recap


View the photo gallery.

MonaVie Founder, Chairman, and CEO Dallin A. Larsen declared 2010 a year of miracles at the Anaheim Regional Meeting, Saturday, January 23. At the spur of the moment, the man at the helm of MonaVie ripped up the day’s agenda and told everyone at the Anaheim Convention Center Arena that he wanted to spend the meeting simply focusing on miracles.

Help for Haiti: Distributors Donate US$64,000

When shredding the meeting’s agenda, Dallin may have known that distributors were also in the mood for miracles, which is something they demonstrated shortly after Dallin revealed that MonaVie has made it possible for distributors to donate to the relief efforts in Haiti straight from the Virtual Office. MonaVie distributors who wish to help those devastated by the tragic earthquake that struck Haiti on January 12, can access their Virtual Offices, and then do the following:

• Click on “Place a Personal Order.”
• Look for “Help for Haiti” at the top of the page.
• Make a donation.

Dallin also invited distributors in attendance in Anaheim to make a donation in lieu of contributions to The MORE Project. Thanks to our generous distributors, MonaVie was able to raise a total of US$64,000 for Haitian relief, exceeding the challenge made by Alyssa Milano to corporations all across the United States. MonaVie has also committed to raising as much as US$100,000 for Haiti relief efforts by week's end. “Where there is devastation and loss, there will be hope and faith,” Dallin declared.

Double Crowne and Crowne Black Diamonds Discuss their Miraculous Journeys

Brig and Lita Hart were honored as MonaVie’s first Double Crowne Black Diamond Executives and were presented with a check for US$2 million as well as keys to a Rolls Royce Phantom.

Recalling how both she and Brig grew up with parents who worked very hard but could provide only enough to get by, Lita explained that she and her husband have not been afraid to work for the things they’ve wanted. “Trust that God has a purpose for your life,” she advised. Brig echoed Lita’s words and promised to help each distributor along the way to achieving their goals. “I’m addicted to seeing people succeed, and I’m passionate about finishing strong,” he said.

Crowne Black Diamond Steve Merritt sat down with Dallin and Karree Larsen and said that the true miracle of his MonaVie journey is attaining his dream of bringing his wife Gina home from work after more than 20 years as a flight attendant. He also spoke about his upbringing in Wisconsin.

Steve left home at the age of 18 to pursue a career in waterskiing. He believed he would become a world champion water skier even as none of his family or friends did. Steve did become a world champion; and, likening the experience to his doubters when he joined MonaVie, he quipped, “I love to beat the odds, and I love helping my friends beat the odds.”

The MORE Project Launches the “Sponsor a Child” Program

One organization certainly doing its part to create miracles in people’s lives is The MORE Project. Katy Holt-Larsen, executive director of The MORE Project, and Sergio Ponce, The MORE Project Brazil director, were on hand in Anaheim to launch the “Sponsor a Child” Program. This new initiative gives distributors the opportunity to build personal relationships with the children being supported by The MORE Project, as well as provide them with schooling, nutritious meals, and dental care. Visit www.themoreproject.org to learn how you can sponsor a child.

Katy also reminded distributors that they can make AutoShip donations to The MORE Project by visiting the Virtual Office and clicking on “I Click for Kids.” Sergio and Katy then brought out from backstage Yonne, a young girl realizing her dreams through The MORE Project. Yonne, who hopes to one day become a professional singer, graced the crowd with a poignantly heartfelt vocal performance.

Sharlie Kaltenbach—Believe in Miracles

Dallin’s niece Sharlie, closed out the Anaheim Regional Meeting with a stirring speech about the people whom she considers miracles in her life—her sister Lexi, her husband Ryan, and her son Harrison.

Sharlie and Lexi have both suffered from cystic fibrosis. Throughout her ongoing struggle, Sharlie has continually defied the odds just as her sister did before her. At the age of 10, Lexi’s lungs began to fail due to the disease, and an oxygen tank became part of her daily attire. Sharlie admired the way her sister handled the situation with humor by dressing her oxygen tank in her own clothes and naming it “Freddie.”

Bravely facing her circumstance throughout her entire life, Lexi lived for many years longer than doctors had prognosticated. However, at the age of 15, her body rejected a double-lung transplant, and she passed on. Sharlie says Lexi lives on as a miracle to her as she battles cystic fibrosis, especially during a particularly difficult time when she felt like giving up. Because of Lexi, Sharlie says she has resolved to fight for life.

Another person Sharlie counts as a miracle in her life is her husband Ryan, who she says has given her hope as they’ve joined together to overcome the trials that come with cystic fibrosis. Before they were married, Sharlie had doubts that she could be the wife she wanted to be given her condition as well as a doctor’s diagnosis that she too would need a lung transplant. Her husband has served as a faithful companion in embracing this part of Sharlie’s life and in meticulously taking on the battle with her.

Sharlie’s final miracle is her son Harrison. All her life, her doctors have counseled her never to get pregnant because the risks were too great. When she and Ryan became pregnant, doctors advised her to abort the baby. United in faith, the two decided to see the pregnancy through and gave birth to a healthy son in February of 2007. While doctors told her she’d never recover from childbirth, Sharlie says she has actually become healthier in the three years since Harrison was born.

“Some people might say I believe in miracles because I’ve experienced them,” Sharlie concluded. “But, I would say the opposite is true: I’ve experienced miracles because I believe in them.”
