Salt Lake City, Utah (February 23, 2011) 4Life President Steve Tew announced today that Foundation 4Life®, the humanitarian branch of the company, has pledged $10,000 USD to aid the New Zealand disaster relief effort.
On Tuesday, February 22, a 6.3 earthquake rocked Christchurch, New Zealand, one of the country’s largest cities. The quake and fallout killed at least 75 people, with more than 300 people trapped in the rubble. This was the second major earthquake to hit the city in only five months. Sidewalks and roads cracked and split, while thousands of dazed residents wandered through the streets.
“The images and reports of the disastrous effects of the Christchurch earthquake are overwhelming,” said 4Life Vice President, International Alan Michaelis. “We express our deepest concern for the victims and those impacted by this tragic event. The resolve of the New Zealand people, including our distributors, is great. I am confident they will work together to bring comfort to those who have lost so much during this difficult time.”
“Our hearts go out to everyone in Christchurch and New Zealand at large,” said Australia/New Zealand Managing Director Evelyn Thom.
4Life President Steve Tew: “What makes Foundation 4Life such an effective enterprise is distributor involvement. On behalf of the corporate team here in Salt Lake City, I thank distributors for their ongoing efforts as we join together and respond to this tragedy.”
Foundation 4Life is a distributor-driven non-profit organization committed to addressing the philanthropic needs of communities wherever 4Life distributors conduct business. New Zealand was 4Life’s first international market. Today, the company operates from offices in 20 countries.
4Life has offices on five continents to serve a global network of independent distributors through science, success, and service.
