I’ve spoken about self-care recently, and I made it the focus of my keynote presentation at the 2020 USANA Americas & Europe Virtual Convention. I believe it’s so important. If you missed the presentation, I invite you to read this blog post, or this one, where I link to an article I wrote that discusses many aspects of self-care.
In addition to taking care of ourselves, which is critical, especially in times such as these, it’s also important to serve others. Service is one of several key elements in building harmony in teams.
Giving Back: The USANA Foundation
When we decided our Americas & Europe Convention would be virtual this year, we wanted to create a unique way for attendees to give back to The USANA Foundation. In the past, at our annual event each August, we’ve volunteered our time to build food packs or we’ve registered for the Champions for Change 5K. Each of these activities supports The Foundation.
This year, with the USANA Family watching the event from home, we couldn’t organize these in-person activities. Instead, we offered a VIP Access ticket in which all proceeds benefited The Foundation. And we promoted a “virtual” 5K to create a sense of togetherness and community.
We set a goal to provide 100,000 meals for hungry children and families. But thanks to your generosity and tireless efforts, The USANA Foundation was able to provide an astonishing 920,000 meals!
920,000 meals. That’s a bittersweet number. On one hand, it’s heartwarming to know that families across the globe are benefiting from the good work done by The Foundation. On the other hand, it’s heartbreaking to realize that there are so many children and families facing food uncertainty—who likely don’t know when the next meal is coming.
Please visit The Foundation’s blog to read more about how you are making a difference and where additional help is needed.
From all of us at USANA and The USANA Foundation, thank you for your service to others. The Americas & Europe Virtual Convention just ended, but our effort to create The Healthiest Family on Earth continues.
“The USANA family came through again! I’m not really surprised. Each and every time we call on them for help, they are there to answer. This has been a tough year for many and for some it’s been quite devastating. I’m grateful for our Associates who make such a difference in times of need.”
— Brian Paul, The USANA Foundation President
