LOS ANGELES, Dec. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ViSalus™, the company behind the celebrated Body by Vi™ Challenge, knows how to make an impact and this holiday season the company is challenging Promoters, family and friends to help make Saturday, December 15th the World's Largest Giving Day. ViSalus is encouraging the Vi-Community, including employees, to initiate collective acts of kindness that will touch the lives of many and inspire thousands more to do the same, and in the process create "A Million Moments of Giving" this holiday season.
World's Largest Giving Day events will take place all over North America – from San Francisco, CA to Savannah, GA, and from Montreal to Ontario in Canada. Events will range from serving 300+ sit down Holiday Dinners, to helping with a community winter clothing drive, to donating meals and canned goods, to delivering ViSalus Nutra-Cookies™ and hot cocoa to Salvation Army bell ringers. In addition to volunteering time, many in the ViSalus community are making a difference by donating Vi-Shape shakes to local food shelters in communities of need through the company's Vi-Community Challenge program.
"Giving back to the community is an integral part of the ViSalus culture and central to our mission of Life, Health and Prosperity," said Ryan Blair, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of ViSalus. "This holiday season, we are proud to continue that tradition by truly making an impact through the World's Largest Giving Day. There is no act too large or too small – the good works of a few can touch the lives of many, and that's what this day is all about."
Participants will be posting stories and photos about their activities and contributions to "A Million Moments of Giving" on the ViSalus Facebook page as well as Tweeting using the hashtag #vicares.
