ORLANDO, Fla., July 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- This June, Jeunesse Global® was announced as the official winner of the Direct Selling Association's ETHOS Rising Star Award. This prestigious accolade recognizes successful direct selling companies who have dedicated themselves to achieving high standards of excellence in business performance. Sales are up 128% year-to-date. And this past June has been the company's most outstanding month yet, with Jeunesse® generating over $21 million in revenue.
This award not only commends business capital: it celebrates spirit, dedication, and altruism. Winners of the DSA's Rising Star Award have given to communities all over the world, and Jeunesse® centers its culture on the principle that nothing is more valuable than human life. Jeunesse Kids™ is the official company sector that works directly with Global Village Champions, a non-profit organization founded by 2012 and 2013 Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Yank Barry. As a corporate advocate, Jeunesse Kids™ is in good company with giants such as Muhammad Ali, Michael Jordan, and Celine Dion. Jeunesse Kids™ has helped provide two million meals to typhoon victims in the Philippines, and is continuing to serve others worldwide. Global Village Champions is staffed completely by volunteers; donations go directly to people who are hungry and in immediate need.
Scott Lewis, Jeunesse Global's Chief Visionary Officer said this about their achievement: "We humbly accept this distinguished award on behalf of all of our Jeunesse® family from around the world. To be recognized as the Rising Star recipient for 2013 is truly an honor, as we have always been a huge proponent of the DSA and everything it stands for. We congratulate the other finalists for their accomplishments, as well as all of our committed distributors who continue to passionately share the Jeunesse® products and opportunity.
"We strongly feel this recognition will continue to strengthen Jeunesse's place in the direct selling industry and solidify our position as a global leader."
The latest edition of Direct Selling News' Global 100 Special Report reports that in just one year, Jeunesse® has risen 94% in sales revenue, which places the company third on the list for Top Percent Growth in 2012. Of the ten leading businesses recognized, Jeunesse® is the youngest company after officially launching on September 9, 2009. Jeunesse® has already grossed over $100 million since the beginning of 2013, putting it on path to generating over $200 million this year. The DSA's selection of Jeunesse® as the winner of the Rising Star Award for 2013, and Direct Selling News' recognition of Jeunesse® as 78th on their Global 100 List, only marks the beginning of the company's many future accomplishments.
