Giving is a core element of XANGO’s mission that has been an essential part of how we do business from the very beginning.
The XANGO Goodness Foundation supports charitable missions, humanitarian relief and feeding programs around the globe. XANGO’s involvement – with support from the company, the distributors and the employees – creates positive change in the lives of children worldwide and increases opportunities for better health, education and social acceptance.
From our earliest days, we’ve dedicated a percentage of net corporate profits to children’s charities around the world. And because XANGO Goodness is set up as a 501 (c)(3) charitable foundation, the donations from XANGO’s network are fully tax-deductible.
By pairing up with foundations like Operation Smile, Best Buddies, AmeriCares and more – we’ve been privileged to see thousands of lives changed for the better.
And it’s not just foundations that give us opportunity for goodness: our staff, distributors and founders put in volunteer hours every month – driving our goodness initiative.
The XANGO Goodness Foundation has formed key global partnerships with several charities to fulfill its mission and spread goodness throughout the world.
Curious about the recent phenomenon of people dumping buckets of ice water over their heads?
It’s a way to raise awareness of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS; also known as “Lou Gehrig’s disease”) — and the ice-bucket challenge has gone viral.
We could get a couple of willing volunteers in Aaron Garrity or Joe Morton, post some cute videos and move on. Or, in true XANGO fashion, we could make it a monster movement and get the world involved. We choose Option #2:
If you accept our ALS Ice-Bucket Challenge, post a video of yourself taking that quick shower and tag it with #XANGOIceBucket. We’ll share that video online, AND we’ll make a donation to ALS for every #XANGOIceBucket video we can find.
Invite your teams, your friends, your family (especially that one brother-in-law who’s such a yammer-mouth), and we’ll see you online!
Operation Smile provides free cleft palate repair surgeries, restoring smiles to the faces of children in developing nations worldwide.
In many parts of the world, children with cleft lip and cleft palate are hidden away, too embarrassed to attend school or even leave the home. They face uncertain futures because their parents can’t afford to provide the surgeries they need. Since 1982 Operation Smile has sponsored missions to provide these surgeries at no cost to the families, and since 2002 XANGO has been honored to be a major contributor.
“XANGO’s title sponsorship of ... Operation Smile ... has helped [hundreds of] children receive life-altering cleft lip or cleft palate surgery, changing their lives forever,” says Operation Smile Founder Dr. Bill Magee. “You may never have the chance to meet these children in person, but rest assured they will thank XANGO and its founders forever for their generosity in making this happen.” Visit Site
