The Association Between Plexus and World Hunger
Hunger is not just present in third-world countries but first-world countries as well. There are still a lot of people who are impervious to the issue of hunger, even from first-world countries. Day by day, families and children are not certain when or where they will be getting their next meal. Christopher Pair, president of Plexus, knows the implications of world hunger. His real-life experience of childhood hunger is one of the reasons why he can relate to this issue strongly.
Growing up as a grandson of a Mexican immigrant and the son of a sharecropper, Christopher Pair has been through poverty and has escaped it once his father joined the army. To provide for the family, his father left the service and became a gardener. Most of the time, there was not enough food supply in their own house. The nutritional value of their food was also not an assurance. To have the right amount of money to pay for food, young Christopher and his family had to make money through recycling. They traded soda cans for money so they can buy meals.
Those years of uncertainty has made Christopher strive to get adequate education and go further in his career. The direct selling industry is the place that Christopher Pair came to attain prosperity and good health and change the lives of others. He is currently Plexus’ President of Operations and International to the direct selling company that help people choose to live healthier lives.
For a long time, Christopher Pair has been in the industry to help other people make the most of their lives. Plexus has the goal of letting people overcome their challenges that is why he joined this company. Because of their focus on nutrition and health, Plexus and Christopher Pair are finding ways to provide an end to world hunger.
In the year 2018 of June, Feeding America became partners with Plexus to help end world hunger. This partnership is built to put find long-term solutions for the hunger crisis. The Nourish One Initiative by Plexus is meant to feed 14 meals to be given to Feeding America for each Plexus Lean product as a monetary donation. For five months, 4 million meals have been donated.
With the goal of Christopher Pair to provide more than 10 million meals, its Nourish One Initiative has partnered with Mary’s Meals. Mary’s Meals is an international child hunger charity that has been established to feed 1.3 million each day. For every purchase of Plexus Lean product that you make, a monetary donation will go to the charity. On January 12, alone, Plexus has donated $25,000 to Mary’s Meals.
Mary’s Meals set up school feeding programs with the help of community volunteers to 17 of the most impoverished countries of the world. This helps encourage children to go to school to get a meal than beg to get one.
