Isagenix Raises $5 Million for Make-A-Wish

Isagenix International, a global health and wellness company, surpassed $5 million cumulatively in donations for Make-A-Wish®, its philanthropic partner.

Since 2012, Isagenix has been a proud partner of Make-A-Wish, changing the lives of hundreds of children by bringing joy and hope to them and their families. Every donation, whether large or small, gives renewed strength to these extraordinary families to continue their fight against their children’s illnesses.

Year over year, Isagenix dedicates May as Make-A-Wish month in an effort to raise money and awareness for the global nonprofit. This May, Isagenix invited its Associates, partners, and employees to push to $5 million, a milestone for the donors and children.

“At Isagenix, we believe that contribution allows us to be a part of something bigger than ourselves,” says Doug Jensen, Vice President of Sales Programs and Strategy. “It instills a strong sense of comradery, fellowship, and gratitude in our community. Partnering with Make-A-Wish allows us to stay true to our mission to give back, serve others, and make a difference in people’s lives.”For more on Make-A-Wish, visit Wish.org or WorldWish.org.

About Make-A-WishMake-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy. According to a 2011 U.S. study of wish impact, most health professionals who were surveyed believe a wish come true has positive impacts on the health of children. Kids say wishes give them renewed strength to fight their illness, and their parents say these experiences help strengthen the entire family. Headquartered in Phoenix, Make-A-Wish is one of the world's leading children's charities, serving children in every community in the United States and its territories and in nearly 50 counties around the world. With the help of generous donors and more than 32,000 volunteers, Make-A-Wish grants a wish somewhere in the world, on average, every 21 minutes. It has granted more than 350,000 wishes since its inception in 1980, with more than 28,000 in 2015 alone.
