Isagenix Global Give Back Day
Isagenix International recently held its first-ever Global Give Back Day, led by the company’s START group of young entrepreneurs.
Ahead of the event, which took place May 7, Isagenix challenged its employees and Associates to focus on giving back in their communities for the day. Volunteers could find a local project through a designated events page or collaborate with others on the START Facebook page to organize their own.
In all, the health and wellness company said that its START members—Associates ages 18-35—led humanitarian projects in nine countries across the Americas and Asia, where Isagenix operates.
“I had goosebumps all day as I realized what was happening,” said Erik Coover, Isagenix Senior Vice President of Global Field Development. “There’s nothing more powerful than a movement that’s rooted in contribution. That’s why the START movement and Isagenix are so powerful.”
The largest initiative took place at the company’s new world headquarters in Gilbert, Arizona, where more than 100 employees and customers gathered. The group donated blood, collected 450 pounds of food, and created 300 activity packets for patients at the Phoenix Children’s Hospital, among other projects.

According to Australian START Sales Executive, Madison McDonald “Although the initiative was led by our START community (ages 18-35) everyone was included in the day. It was all about bringing teams together from all over the world to connect with the vision of Isagenix – where contribution and giving back is at the core. It was incredible to watch the wave unfold on social media -starting in New Zealand, into Australia, across Asia and into the US and Canada. We were planting trees, donating food and clothing, cleaning beaches, fundraising, painting, raising awareness and so much more. Giving back and being able to making a difference to others – it’s exceptionally rewarding to all”.
