In honor of our founder Mark Hughes and to celebrate his legacy of giving back to communities in need, Herbalife Nutrition has designated February as our Global Month of Purpose.  Throughout the month, employees are supporting our Herbalife Family Foundation (HFF) through donations and organized volunteer services.

The Global Month of Purpose provides Herbalife Nutrition employees an opportunity to volunteer at partner organizations we call “Casas,” which provide healthy nutrition and nutrition education to children in need.  This year, employees in the Philippines, India, the United Kingdom, Mexico and the United States will participate in activities that range from planting gardens, feeding children and putting a fresh coat of paint on children’s bedrooms and playing areas.  And I am proud to report that our employees have volunteered more than 1,000 hours in just two weeks.

We are hoping the Global Month of Purpose raises awareness about the work the Herbalife Family Foundation and Herbalife Nutrition employees do to create meaningful, lasting change in people’s lives.

Philanthropy is deep in the DNA of who we are as a company, and Global Month of Purpose is one way we support those who need it most while furthering our purpose. Enthusiasm is contagious, and we’re hoping that our Global Month of Purpose expands to more countries and more Casas each year, and that by extending our reach, we help more children live healthier, happier lives.
