Herbalife Family Foundation March, 2015
 En Español

Every February we celebrate Mark Hughes Day and the two great legacies our founder left behind: Herbalife and Herbalife Family Foundation (HFF). While, in honor of Mark Hughes (1956-2000) we carry on his legacy of giving back to those in need throughout the year, here are some ways Herbalife Family Foundation showed its commitment to Mark Hughes and gave back during the month of February.

Spotlight on Europe, the Middle East and Africa

SOS Children’s Villages in Athens, Greece provides abandoned, orphaned and destitute children with a permanent home and an SOS Mother, an adult given the responsibility of caring for the children. Children receive clothing, education, and medical and social support in addition to safe housing and good nutrition.


 From Around the World

The United Kingdom celebrated Mark Hughes Day on the 25th of February.  Thirty-five hundred pounds was raised for the London-based Casa Herbalife program, Action for Children, through a raffle, auction and cake bake sale. Earlier in the month two members of world-famous LA Galaxy team, Chris Klein and Alex Savva, were special guests at Action for Children’s Hackney Young Carers. Chris and Alex gave the children a football skills session and cooking lessons. In addition, the LA Galaxy donated US$20,000 to Hackney Young Carers.

In North America, the Los Angeles office celebrated Mark Hughes Day with employees donating to the Mark Hughes Monthly Giving Campaign. Employees who pledged $5 or more a month or donated personal hygiene items to the local Casa Herbalife program were entered into a raffle. At the end of the week the office held a party where HFF raffled off Herbalife prizes and celebrated Mark Hughes's legacy of giving.


In February, Indonesia organized a special visit from Herbalife Corporate Communications and 15 members to Rumah Autis, a Casa Herbalife program providing over 150 autistic children with specialized therapy and, of course, good nutrition. The children at Rumah Autis, who are taught music as a therapeutic activity, performed for the Herbalife guests during their visit.

South and Central America were very busy with eight Herbalife Extravaganza events held throughout the region. Countries participated in different fundraisers for HFF, such as a $20 Contribution Bond and Recognition Wall in Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay. Bolivia had a silent auction and hosted a 4K race with Dr. Medina that raised money and awareness while promoting a healthy lifestyle. Many of the countries gave out buttons or, in some cases, bracelets that say “I made a donation, and you?”.

A few special Casa Herbalife program visits took place in Mexico. Herbalife Call Center employees visited the children of Proyecto de Atención integral a la Persona Inmuno Deprimida. Additionally, the Herbalife Mexico employee football team visited Hogar Nacidos para Triunfar. The football team Borregos del Tec de Puebla along with six President’s Team members visited the Una Nueva Esperanza Casa Herbalife program, bringing gifts and spending time playing with the children. During the visit, all of the volunteers painted their hands and stamped their handprint on the wall as sign of support. Una Nueva Esperanze has been part of the Casa Herbalife program since 2012 and serves children with cancer during their treatments.
