Spotlight: Brand Partner making a difference with Big Brothers Big Sisters

Nerium International and its Brand Partners are big believers in giving back and improving the lives of young people and the communities in which they live.

David, a single parent from Vancouver, joined Nerium in 2014. He was, and continues to be, impressed by Nerium’s enthusiasm for giving back to one’s community and their dedication in championing mentoring services for youth through Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS).

David has provided support to Big Brothers Big Sisters through his affiliation with Nerium International, but has also personally donated, as well as having provided in-kind donations of household items and clothing through his local BBBS agency’s pick-up program. In addition, David regularly attends the Nerium Ripple Foundation’s training conferences and is proud to help reach the fundraising goal set each year in support of charitable organizations.

The goal at the 2018 conference was to raise $100,000 over three days. By the end of the conference, this goal was surpassed! The impact of such incredible support makes a big difference in the lives of children across the country.

David’s inspiration to give back to charitable organizations, like Big Brothers Big Sisters, comes from his belief that when you are doing well, it is important to lend a helping hand to lift up anyone that may be struggling, and encourages others to do the same. According to David, “not only is it is important to do so, but that it also feels great doing so. Not everyone has the same level of support, care, love, resources as others…when we reach out and help others, we reach out and help the world and help to make it a better place and more enjoyable experience for everyone.”

Big Brothers Big Sisters is thankful to Nerium International and its generous Brand Partners like David. The incredible ongoing support contributes to Big Brothers Big Sisters’ work to ensure vulnerable children and youth have mentors to advise and challenge them, act as their champions, provide greater consistency in their lives, connect them to broader experiences, opportunities and networks, and provide safe, nonjudgmental environments in which they can confide anything. Through these actions, young people gain the confidence to achieve a brighter future.
