On April 25th Nepal was struck with a powerful earthquake that devastated the area. The number of deceased has surged passed 5,500 and the number of injured, missing, and homeless is so incredibly large it can’t be accurately reported. Immediately Forever Giving wanted to take action and donated $20,000 to CARE International to help provide emergency shelter and hygiene kits to those that lost their homes. CARE is an organization that has had a long standing presence in Nepal, and we are confident in their ability to provide disaster relief assistance. The affects of this earthquake are immeasurable and will be felt for years to come, so we wanted to ask that you help us continue to raise money for this cause. Thousands of men, women, and children have no home, no immediate source of food or clean water, and many are still stranded in need of assistance. Every bit counts and can truly help Make a Difference in this situation in Nepal.

Forever Giving is invited annually to the Forever Global Rally, where we present a local charity with a donation. This year we were invited to Singapore, a beautiful location with a festive environment. For something so grand we knew we wanted to do more than our usual check presentation. Forever Business Owners have been donating to Forever Giving for years and have always been so supportive, so we wanted to provide them with a hands on experience. To help us with this we enlisted the assistance of the organization Stop Hunger Now.

We went to Singapore with one mission: pack over a quarter of a million meals for the hungry in Cambodia and the Philippines. We started with the Forever Living 5k qualifier group who helped us kick off the meal packing party with some enthusiasm! With over 13 tonnes of rice, 6 tonnes of Soya, 1 ton of vegetables and vitamins, and another 2 tonnes of packing materials there was a lot of work to be done! We couldn’t have picked a better group to help us get started. They were energetic and charitable, putting great care into each meal that was created. They even helped us recruit and inspire more Forever Business Owners to join us later in the week to continue our meal packing. So much so that our second meal packing event was so popular we had to turn people away because we simply didn’t have the room! Everyone there wanted to Make a Difference and it was truly inspiring to see everyone try and work together to end world hunger.

Needless to say we were able to hit our goal and presented Stop Hunger Now representative, Tiki Keh, with a $95,000 USD check to help continue the incredible work they are doing. We here at Forever Giving are so happy to have received so much support and are incredibly excited to think that right now a meal that we packed at the Global Rally could be feeding a hungry orphan in Cambodia or starving family in the Philippines. It’s just proof that when we work together we truly can Make a Difference.

Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque Enfants du Monde enables children with heart malformations to undergo surgery in France when they lack the technical and financial means to be cared for in their countries of origin. Each month, about 20 children are operated on in 9 French towns. In addition to this main mission, the Association also supports the training of doctors from their countries of origin, as well as educational sponsorship.

Each child is flown in and stays in France for 2 months on average. There is a team in place for the arrival of every child including a host family that will house them while they undergo tests prior to their surgery. All treatments, including the actual procedure are done with careful consideration and in the best conditions.

It costs an average of $14,000 per child, funded by private donations and corporate partners like Forever Giving. Forever Giving presented Mecenat Chirurgie Cardiaqu with a check in the amount of €45,091 from distributor’s generous contributions to the Mecenat Chirurgie Cardiaque campaign collected by Forever Living Products France SARL.

Forever Living Products France distributors donated more than $50,000in 2014, which will save 4 children in 2015.

The Forever Living Global Rally gives the stage to Forever Giving annually, to recap the previous year and announce a new donation. Providing information on our recent donations and all the work we are doing world wide is always fantastic, but it’s announcing our newest recipients that brings the most excitement. This year brought along 2 beneficiaries to a Forever Giving donation!

KAOS Choir

Our first donation was to KAOS Choir, a local choir in London that provides education and performance opportunities to children who are deaf or hard of hearing. We had the pleasure of hearing KAOS Choir sing live at Global Rally while signing in BSL. Despite their aforementioned disadvantage, the choir was an incredible force and truly sounded beautiful. With a talent so undeniable we were happy to provide KAOS Choir with a donation.


Our second donation was to Whizz-Kidz, an organization in London that provides proper wheel chairs to those in need. A representative of the organization, George Fielding, joined us on stage to tell us his own personal story of how Whizz-Kidz changed his life. The impact this organization has had on George and the community is undeniable, and Forever Giving was happy to provide Whizz-Kidz with a generous donation.

See what Whizz-Kidz is all about!

December 1st was World AIDS Day, a day dedicated to raising awareness about the disease and touching the lives of those who suffer from it. Forever Giving decided to join in on the message of AIDS day and donated to the Zimbabwe AIDS Orphan Society (ZAOS). We would like to thank Frederic Alerstam and the rest of the Scandinavia office of Forever Living Products for the recommendation of this organization. They not only have made recommendations but have continually helped raise money for Forever Giving and for that… we are Forever grateful.

We are happy to share that with the donation from Forever Giving, ZAOS will be able to distribute basic healthcare to the orphans that live within their camp. From dental attention to regular check ups, these children will now be able to receive care they had been missing. Thank you again to all of the incredible people that donate to Forever Giving, because of YOU we are able to Make A Difference.

On November 8th Super Typhoon Yolanda (international name Haiyan) made landfall in the Philippines. Though many were aware of the strength the storm possessed, few could actually imagine the destruction it would cause. Thousands have lost their homes and businesses, many cities are still without power, and numerous people are missing. The Philippine Red Cross estimates that at least 1,200 people were killed by the storm, but that number could grow as officials make their way to remote areas made nearly inaccessible by Yolanda.

In an effort to assist those affected, Forever Giving has decided to make a donation of $50,000 to the Philippine Red Cross to aid in the recovery and rebuilding of the affected areas. While Red Cross relief efforts are well underway, blocked roads, destroyed infrastructure and downed communication lines are making the response particularly challenging. They have been working tirelessly to gain access to these areas and continue to push towards survivors who are in need. Forever Giving’s donation can hopefully assist in getting materials around the country and in these especially difficult conditions.

In addition to the $50,000 donation, Forever Giving has also dedicated our Paypal account to the Philippines from now through the end of November. Every dollar donated to our Paypal account will go towards the disaster relief in the Philippines. You can donate here.

We want to thank everyone who chooses to donate to Forever Giving. Because of you we are able to “Make a Difference” in the world. Salamat!

Today has been an exciting day for Forever Giving. We have chosen a new organization to donate to…which will be announced soon! And we also received a very nice letter from the Red Cross that we thought we would share with you all.

“Dear Forever Giving,

As we commemorate the one-year mark since Superstorm Sandy devastated the East Coast, I’d like to again thank you and Forever Living Products for your generous support, both financially and with in-kind product, that allowed the American Red Cross to help tens of thousands of people affected by Superstorm Sandy’s devastation. We greatly appreciate all that you did and do to help those during times of need!! Your support helped the Red Cross be there with food, shelter, relief supplies and support for months after the storm hit, and we are continuing to help people recover and rebuild. We have helped families start over in a new place to live, provided financial support to people working to put their lives back together, enabled residents to clean out mold from their water-logged homes and given emotional support to those who have been put through so much.”

Forever Giving is touched to know that our contribution to the Red Cross is still helping people out.

Severe illness can consume anyone, but when it is our children who are ill it is the most heart wrenching. Forever Giving has continually concerned itself with the well being of children and recently have found two organizations in Hawaii who are doing the same. HUGS and Hawaii Children’s Cancer Foundation were the recipients of a generous grant from Forever Giving which was presented at the Forever Global Rally 2013 in Honolulu. And they were chosen for good reason…

Hawaii Children’s Cancer Foundation is an organization that focuses on assisting children and their families upon their diagnoses of cancer. In partnership with Forever Giving, Hawaii Children’s Cancer Foundation will be donating $24,000 in financial assistance to families with children who are suffering from cancer. This will provide a cushion for families who may not be able to afford their mortgage, car payments, or even medical treatments not covered by insurance. Tara Humphreys, a representative from HCCF, shares “Often times one parent will leave their job in an effort to take care of their ailing child, and in turn their financials take a hit. Families struggle to meet bills and purchase food, we do our best to help with that.”

In addition to financial assistance Forever Giving donated an additional $1,500 to HCCF’s Kokua Basket project. These baskets are given to newly diagnosed children and their families. These “survival kits” contain everything from gift cards, stuffed animals, blankets, or anything else that may help comfort them during their hospital stay. It also contains a book that tells the family the type of cancer their child has and the treatment that is to come.

Hawaii Children’s Cancer Foundation:

In addition to HCCF there was a donation made to:

Forever Giving’s second contribution was made to HUGS. While HCCF focused on the financial and initial trauma of diagnoses, HUGS focuses on long term emotional, psychological, and social support. HUGS often times calls themselves a family because that is what they are there for, to strengthen families in the face of adversity. HUGS provides peer support groups, family events, emergency respite, and provides a place for these ill children to no longer be looked at as patients and just be kids. With Forever Giving’s $24,000 donation, HUGS will be providing an Airfare Assistance Program to its families. This program will allow for families to transport their child to Oahu or the mainland for procedures not offered on their island. It will also provide family members on neighboring islands the ability to fly in to see these children in times of emergency. Ultimately it allows the family to be a family in times of need.


Forever Giving is pleased to have found two organizations in Hawaii that are providing a service to ill children and look forward to seeing the effects these donations will have on the families.
