PLANO, Texas, April 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- WorldVentures™, the direct-selling industry's leading seller of vacation club memberships, announced today that the company's philanthropic arm is changing its name from the Manifest Foundation to the WorldVentures Foundation™.
"We embarked on this journey together with WorldVentures' Independent Representatives three years ago," said WorldVentures Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer Mike Azcue. "We are very fortunate to partake in this mission with extremely enthusiastic individuals who share our vision of improving the quality of life of people in the United States and around the world. Many times, our need to help others is so self-rewarding that it seems to overcome the actual need for help. Together with the WorldVentures Foundation's new passionate executive director, Gwyneth Lloyd, I am confident that our contribution will become even more impactful and sustainable."
"We are thrilled to change our name to better reflect our alignment with WorldVentures' global mission," said WorldVentures Foundation Executive Director Gwyneth Lloyd. "WorldVentures has such passionate Independent Representatives, and we have an 'army of possibilities' to make an impact wherever we choose to focus our energies every day."
