A magical Sunday morning with Make-A-Wish at Celebration
Make-A-Wish® gives severely ill children hope for the future. Our Associate’s charitable donations in collaboration with this special charity are the driving force behind building strength for children who face the challenges of their illnesses.
This morning at Celebration our Associates opened their hearts to a very special wish child, Meggan, aged 18 and diagnosed with Pulmonary Atresia.
Speaking on stage to 4,000 Associates, Meggan shared with the audience her story and wish of having her children’s book published, which will be granted by Make-A-Wish later in the year. We are proud to be part of discovering joy for yet another child. Meggan has always hoped for her creative skills to be recognised and we are so happy to witness this joy.
Associates Raise Over $50,000 on Stage
Our company wouldn’t be the same without its amazing Associates who continue to give so generously. Isagenix ANZ would like to say a HUGE thank you to those who joined the stage to support the Isagenix Ambassador for Make-A-Wish, Suzanne Skillen and the pledge for $3,000 donations!
‘’Look at this stage full of amazing people. This is a company of heart and the people who made this possible are here on stage to join us in donating. This truly is love in action,” Suzanne said.
We would also like to say thank you to those who donated so selflessly with their gold-coin donations and those who donate continuously on their Autoship. Your donations are impacting lives and giving hope to seriously ill children.
The vast majority of families tell Make-A-Wish they see noticeable, lasting improvements in their child’s emotional and physical health as a result of their wish journey. As one wish mum said, “It was the turning point in his treatment.”
Making a Difference
As a company, we are proud to be closely connected to Make-A-Wish. Isagenix is particularly fond of giving back to the community – to date – Isagenix ANZ has helped Make-A-Wish Australia make over 130 wishes come true!

START Give Back Day
At the start of April, Isagenix kicked off their first START Give Back day.
Contribution is the driving force behind the START movement, and this dedication and commitment to changing lives was shown at yesterday’s Give Back Day, when 80 young men and woman joined arms to give back to the local Brisbane community.
Partnering with OzHarvest, Associates cooked for a cause, preparing meals for those in need. The atmosphere was electric and everyone came together as #oneteam.
So far OzHarvest has delivered over 45 million meals and our amazing 18-35 year-old Associates have now added to that phenomenal number!
“I’m so grateful for Erik Coover bringing people together to create an incredible atmosphere,” said 1 Star Silver Circle, Crystal Manager, Blake Harlock. “This culture allows us to get together and do something with a smile on our faces! With more time for ourselves, we are able to use this time to help the people that need it most.”
Blake, also awarded The Heart of Isagenix Award over the weekend at Celebration, feels there needs to be more awareness about the struggles people are going through and that it’s great to be involved in a company that focuses on making a change for the better.
Having just attended her fourth Celebration, 1 Star Silver Circle, Manager, Jodie Pixton, also shared how she was “filled with joy” to contribute and be a part of this fantastic community. “I’m so passionate about volunteering and today is just a great day to connect as we give back.”
