I thought that I would share with you one way to help people affected by Friday's earthquake in Japan through Shaklee Cares.
Shaklee Cares is a publicly supported, nonprofit organization, founded in 1992 in the wake of Hurricane Andrew. 100% of all donations to Shaklee Cares are utilized to help rebuild lives, homes, and communities. Shaklee Corporation underwrites all Shaklee Cares administrative expenses. For more information about Shaklee Cares, visit us at www.shakleecares.org.
One of the ways to donate to the people in Japan is through Shaklee care packs. You can see the different packs and info about them here. There is no shipping charge on these.
Here is an email that I received from Shaklee's chairman and CEO, Roger Barnett, about the relief efforts:
Dear Shaklee Family,
All of us are deeply saddened and concerned by what our friends and fellow Shaklee Family Members in Japan have faced since Friday’s earthquake and tsunami. This was the strongest earthquake in modern Japanese history and as you can imagine with an event of this magnitude, we do not yet know the full impact and the toll that has been taken.
We are encouraged that we have been able to reach all but one of our employees in Shaklee Japan, and that we have been able to reach almost half of our Sales Leaders. So far, none have been harmed, but we will continue to try to contact each and every leader to ascertain their safety. And we will continue to pray for their safety and well-being.
We know that you will join us in offering your prayers and support, and we know that you may also want to do more. Through Shaklee Cares®, we have started a special fund: The Shaklee Cares for Japan Earthquake Relief Fund. Shaklee Cares will distribute donations to this special fund to help our Shaklee Family Members in Japan to rebuild their lives.
Our hearts and our prayers are with all of the people of Japan. Thank you again for your caring and commitment to helping others that make our company and Shaklee Family so very special. Together, we will continue to create a better world.
