Isagenix Raises More than $206,000 for Make-A-Wish®
Isagenix®, along with its Associates and employees, set a record for their May Make-A-Wish® Month donations, raising over $206,000 during the month. As their official charity beneficiary, Make-A-Wish worked closely with Isagenix to help provide ways for Associates and employees to donate to the organization.
With total donations totaling $206,582, Isagenix surpassed the previous year’s total of $150,290 in 2014. Donations raised in May 2015 exceeded all previous Make-A-Wish Months since the company began sponsoring the organization in 2012.
“Make-A-Wish is truly making a difference in the lives of thousands of children around the world every year,” says Isagenix Co-Founder, Kathy Coover. “We know those special moments give hope, strength, and joy to the children, their families and those of us committed to helping people in need.”
At the annual Isagenix Top Achievers event alone, Isagenix business leaders collectively donated over $88,000. These efforts were thanks in part to the Make-A-Wish luncheon, where Associates had the opportunity to hear from President and CEO of Make-A-Wish America, David Williams.
“Isagenix began its global sponsorship of Make-A-Wish back in August 2012,” said Williams. “Needless to say, we were thrilled to be such a perfect fit, and to continue what has been a remarkable journey together so far. Together we will come closer to granting the wish of every eligible child.”
Williams went on to say that Isagenix and its Associates have donated more than $2.4 million since 2012, helping to grant more than 317 wishes to kids around the world.
The enthusiasm for Make-A-Wish Month did not stop with the Associates. Isagenix corporate staff and partners added an additional $5,429 through cash donations, Make-A-Wish T-shirt sales, and a Customer Care Make-A-Wish Challenge.
Isagenix plans to continue its sponsorship of the organization, and hopes to raise even more to support wish kids and their families.

Make-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 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. With the help of generous donors and more than 27,000 volunteers, Make-A-Wish grants a wish somewhere in the country every 37 minutes. It has granted more than 254,000 wishes since its inception in 1980 and more than 14,200 in 2014 alone. Visit Make-A-Wish at www.wish.orgto learn more.
