Flower Mound, TX, USA – November 25, 2021 – Mannatech, Inc. partnered with Kids Around the World and Natural Aloe Costa Rica on November 8, 2021 to build and dedicate a new playground and learning greenhouse for the children of Escuela Bermudas in Costa Rica. To support the farmers and families who grow their premium, nutrient-dense aloe, Mannatech pulled together the three-pronged partnership to invest in the future of the children of Costa Rica through their M5M Foundation. This give-back project was entirely funded by contributions given to the M5M Foundation as part of Mannatech’s social entrepreneurship model, where each product sold by a Mannatech associate generates a donation to the Foundation.
Mannatech CEO and M5M Foundation Board of Director, Alfredo Bala said it was “an emotional moment for all when we saw the smiles, the joy and laughter of the children enjoying their new playground and repainted school.” Mannatech Chief Sales & Marketing Officer and M5M Foundation Chairman, Landen Fredrick added, “We will soon provide sustainable nutrition, meals, and play for the children of the school for years to come. With these partnerships, we will be able to see the impact that these donations can have on the communities of Costa Rica.”
Mannatech associates actually competed to participate as volunteers on the project. Chosen through the Mannatech #costaricachallenge2021 incentive earlier this year, the winners of the challenge were flown to Costa Rica by Mannatech, where they spent their time building, painting, and serving the school while enjoying a 5 star travel incentive.
Mannatech Regional President of EMEAA and M5M Foundation Board of Director, Chris Simons said, “We are able to see first-hand the profound impact our global Associates and Customers are having on children.” He added, “these children will remember years from now how the Associates of Mannatech helped bring them hope and happiness.”
