Contribution Is Contagious

There was no shortage of the happiness hormone in the early hours before Celebration 2016 in Las Vegas – the annual flagship event for Isagenix Members. More than 100 START members gathered to volunteer with nonprofit organization Three Square, which helps people in need across Nevada. The energy was so electric, in fact, you would have thought the two buses transporting everyone were headed to a Las Vegas day club – but that’s just the passion these people have for moments just like this.Group_Shot_START_Give_Back[4]

Along with its annual Global Give Back Day, the START Give Back event is a tradition at major Isagenix events every year. In addition, START members organize their own activities to give back in their communities all year long. For example, Amanda and Matt Svendsen teamed up with Sole Hope to send clothes and shoes to children in Uganda. Independently organized events like these are led by various START members and are growing in number with each passing year.

Why We Do What We Do

Thousands of motivated young people, just like the ones involved with START, have looked to Tony Robbins for guidance for more than a decade. Robbins is a motivational speaker who has worked with some of the world’s most successful people, and in his 2006 TED Talk, Tony focuses on six emotional human needs – certainty, variety, significance, love, growth, and contribution. He saves the best for last, highlighting contribution because it’s a need that shapes who we are.

It’s a sentiment to which the members of START can relate. Alongside the joy of contribution at these Give Back events is a strong sense of gratitude – the men and women of START are so grateful for what the community has done for them that they are eager to take action through acts of giving and service. It’s no accident that this is why Isagenix makes Contribution one of its 12 core values.

Contribution is at the core of Isagenix. We believe you never truly have anything until you share it. Making a difference in other people’s lives, giving back, and serving others brings true joy in life.

“The secret to happiness and living a fulfilling life is giving – but not just with money – it’s giving our time to those who need it most,” said Isagenix Senior Vice President of Global Field Development Erik Coover. “Sometimes all people need is to know that there is somebody out there who cares. That’s why I’m so proud to be a part of this group of inspired people who want to build a better future for the next generation.”

We’re Just Getting Started

To feel love and fulfillment is to give back to those who need it most, to contribute to the world. This ties into the meaning behind the START group, where young men and women come together to offer themselves and those around them a new beginning through contribution.

Contribution is the motivation behind every Give Back event, from Celebration to small gatherings around the world, and this is just the beginning.
