“Our mission from the very beginning has been to be a force for good in the world. The Nourish the Children Initiative allows us the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of malnourished and starving children. I can’t think of a better way to be a force for good.” -- Blake Roney, Chairman, Nu Skin Enterprises


New Approach • Why is Nourish the Children so important to Nu Skin Enterprises – marries philanthropy with entrepreneurship – provides opportunity to “do well by doing good” – gives rise to new approach in feeding starving children


Social Entrepreneur • “…combines the passion of a social mission with discipline, innovation, and determination of entrepreneur.” • “…needed to develop new models for a new century.” J. Gregory Dees, Professor Graduate School of Business, Stanford University


Future depends on YOU!! • Nu Skin Australia/New Zealand and Nourish the Children – first markets to launch after United States – teamed up with relief agency Feed the Children – regional relief projects


“I teamed with 600,000 employees at Chrysler to save an automobile company. Now I am teaming with 600,000 Nu Skin Enterprises distributors to save the children of the world. Some didn’t think it was possible to save Chrysler, but we did. Some don’t think it is possible for this company to save the World’s starving Children but we will.” -- Lee Iacocca, Chairman, Nourish the Children Advisory Board
