On November 20, more than 15,000 people in 57 countries helped 100,000 children
ADA, Mich., December 9 2013 /3BL Media/ – During the span of 24 hours on November 20, more than 15,000 Amway business owners and employees mobilized to serve children’s causes in their communities. In 57 countries, together they volunteered 35,425 service hours through 304 projects benefitting more than 100,000 children.
The AMWAY ONE BY ONE® Campaign for Children Universal Children's Day was the culmination of activities celebrating the Campaign's 10th anniversary.
Starting at midnight on Wednesday, November 20, the Amway Universal Children’s Day came to life. Amway business owners and employees in more than 55 countries participated in volunteering, giving and advocacy with local partners.
We tracked over 100 projects, and are certain that there were many more that we may never know about. They started in Australia, moved around the world, passed through our headquarters in Ada, Michigan, and ended at our Nutrilite offices in Buena Park, California.
Why was November 20 for the Amway Universal Children’s Day?
Amway was founded in November, 1959. That same month, on November 20, 1959, the United Nations issued the Declaration of the Rights of a Child, which said, “Mankind owes to the child the best it has to give.”
On November 20, Amway Employees and Distributors will “mobilize for good.”
ADA, Mich., October 17, 2013 /3BL Media/ – As the culminating event in the Amway One by One Campaign for Children’s 10 year anniversary, Amway is mobilizing employees and distributors from across the globe on November 20 to serve children’s causes they are passionate about. The global event is Amway Universal Children’s Day.
We invite the industry to join us on Nov. 20, Amway Universal Children’s Day, to embrace a children’s cause in their communities.
If you’ve ever heard Amway Chairman Steve Van Andel or President Doug DeVos speak, you know they believe wholeheartedly in the power of entrepreneurism to make the world a better place. But it isn’t just the power of a business opportunity that can make a difference in the communities in which we live, work and play. It’s also the tremendous potential of our ability to mobilize people to help others.
