It Works! Global Feeds 60,000 African Children
BRADENTON, Fla., Sept. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- It Works! Global challenged its sales force to make a difference in the world and the group rose to the challenge by donating $150,000 to feed more than 60,000 children through Children's Cup.
The challenge began at the company's Seattle conference where its sales force raised $25,000, which was then matched by It Works! Global's CEO Mark B. Pentecost and his wife Cindy for a total of $50,000. The mission to spread hope didn't stop in Seattle; over the next 10 days, the It Works! sales force continued to raise funds that the Pentecosts matched again, bringing the final donation total to $150,000.
Children's Cup, a non-profit organization founded in 1992 by Dave and Jean Ohlerking, reaches out to hurting and forgotten children and offers them hope. Through Children's Cup, a $5 donation can feed two children for approximately four weeks.
"It Works! is proud to support a cause that is changing the lives of children in need," said Pentecost.
It Works! sold "Give Hope" bracelets for $5 donations and the bracelets immediately sold out, exceeding all expectations.
In June, the Pentecosts traveled to Africa to meet some of the children who benefit from the It Works! Gives Back program.
It Works! Gives Back strives to make a lasting difference in communities locally and globally through financial, practical and emotional support.
