Plexus: Feeding Starving Children and Saving Lives
Hunger is not just present in third-world countries but first-world countries as well. For some people, the issue of hunger is still challenging to grasp. The issue of when and where the next meal will come in is a common dilemma for a lot of families and children. Christopher Pair, president of Plexus, knows the implications of world hunger. His real-life experience of childhood hunger is one of the reasons why he can relate to this issue strongly.
Christopher Pair was the grandson of a Mexican immigrant and the son of a sharecropper where joining the military on the part of his father has saved them from poverty. To provide for the family, his father left the service and became a gardener. Most of the time, there was not enough food supply in their own house. The nutritional value of their food was also not an assurance. Recycling became one method that the family used when Christopher was still young just to have enough income for food. In order for them to buy meals, they needed to trade soda cans with money.
To get a better life for himself and for his family based on those years of not being sure when they will eat their next meals, Christopher sought education and career opportunities. The direct selling industry is the place that Christopher Pair came to attain prosperity and good health and change the lives of others. As a direct selling company that promotes people live healthier lives, Plexus Worldwide has sought the help of Christopher Pair to be their President of Operations and International.
For a long time, Christopher Pair has been in the industry to help other people make the most of their lives. Plexus is the company that he has chosen with its emphasis to help people overcome their challenges. Because of their focus on nutrition and health, Plexus and Christopher Pair are finding ways to provide an end to world hunger.
In June 2018, Plexus partnered with Feeding America to feed people who are suffering from hunger. This partnership is built to put find long-term solutions for the hunger crisis. The Nourish One Initiative by Plexus is meant to feed 14 meals to be given to Feeding America for each Plexus Lean product as a monetary donation. For the five months alone, an equivalent of 4 million meal donations have been met.
Owing to the fact that Christopher Pair still wants to reach more than 10 million meal donations, their Nourish One Initiative has partnered internationally with Mary’s Meals. Mary’s Meals is a worldwide child hunger charity that aims to feed 1.3 million children every day. For every purchase of Plexus Lean product that you make, a monetary donation will go to the charity. On January 12, alone, Plexus has donated $25,000 to Mary’s Meals.
Mary’s Meals set up school feeding programs with the help of community volunteers to 17 of the most impoverished countries of the world. Rather than begging to get a meal, children are encouraged to go to school to get a meal.
