Nourish the Children

NuSkin has now delivered over 150 million meals of nutrient-rich food to third world countries. "It is 5% of what we do, but 95% of who we are."

Nourish the Children was founded in June 2002 by Nu Skin with a mission of saving malnourished children around the world.


Nourish the Children is an innovative partnership between a company and charities that was awarded the American Business Award for Best Corporate Social Responsibility Program in 2007. The food given through Nourish the Children is VitaMeal® which was formulated specifically for malnourished children with 25 vitamins and minerals.

VitaMeal is produced in Malawi where the food plant can provide income for hundreds of workers and farmers and in China so that the food can reach children in China, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, etc.

It is so easy to participate. Just go to to purchase and donate VitaMeal. Nu Skin participates with matching donations. Join us today.

Too keep you Busy

I've been busy getting ready for a yard sale. I haven't anything exciting or funny or charming to say, so here are two cute projects to inspire you. One is a braided rag rug and one is a bandanna skirt.

Explanation of Absence

Hello world! (I'm flattering myself here)
I have been very busy and preoccupied with my new 'business' venture, so I apologize for being a non-presence, oh- and my kids have been sick again. I'm starting to sound like those 'weird' people whose kids are always sick with something. ;)
So I was refraining from telling all ya'all about what I've been doing because I've been afraid of what you might think of me. But seriously, if you read my blog, I shouldn't worry about that, right? I'm sure I've given you a lot of reasons to think ill of me up til now.
I joined a company called NuSkin. It is a direct-sales company that has been around for 25 years. They are currently in 49 countries and growing. They are publicly traded on the NYSE and this year have been recommended by Forbes magazine as one of their top 10 picks for stocks to buy. They also have a 51A credit rating by Dunn & Bradstreet which less than 1% of all companies in the world receive. The exciting thing that is happening right now is that this company makes a new millionaire every 5 days. There are a lot more wonderful things to say about the company. The research I did into the company gave me the assurance that this isnt' one of those MLM things that's going to support the top people and make them rich and then eventually collapse. Most direct-sales companies have an average of 7% customer base for their sales volume, the other 93% being distributors. NuSkin has a 65% customer base and 35% distributor sales volume. That reassures me that this is not a house of cards. There are people who live right here in my valley that have replaced a better than average income in less than 4 months. So I know it's not only for the rich people in California. ;)
There are a few reasons this business is going like wildfire right now.
The products they sell are exclusive and they have several scientific and technological breakthroughs that are literally changing our world. You've all heard of the anti-aging market, but up to now that has been a bit of a misnomer. Nothing has actually stopped the aging process. Until now. And our company has the global patents on these products. It is SO exciting!! They have actually identified the 8 sources of aging in our bodies and have started coming out with products that go straight to the source of aging and STOP it! Wahoo!!! This is wonderful news for everyone! Can you see I am excited? They said they've only tapped into 5% of that potential so far. Can you imagine not having to look old, and also keeping your cells, organs, and joints young too? It is a miracle that will change the world.
Another hot item right now is the galvanic spa. It actually erases lines & wrinkles and gives you a face lift in just 10 minutes. No needles, knives or pain and only $7 a treatment that you can do in your own home. I've done it on people as young as 20 and saw a difference in their faces. It also works to thicken and restore thinning hair and believe it or not, gets rid of flabby, saggy, cellulite skin. I know it sounds unbelievable, but I've seen it with my own eyes!
If any of you want to know more, let me know. I'll be glad to give anyone a demo. The baby-boomers are going crazy over these innovations, and they are the largest market in the world, possibly the history of the world. The timing couldn't be better. Especially with the economy. A lot of people need to replace their incomes and are actually surpassing them. Can you imagine being able to dream again?
I am very happy this is a business that actually delivers and is not one full of empty promises. The people are all a big team and everyone is helping each other. It is a wonderful organization, whose focus is integrity and service. The president of the company is willing to take time for the lowliest of newcomers.
Here is a website people like to check out.

Have a very wonderful week!
