Bringing Joy to La Casa Rosada

This week we wanted to share with you a few more pictures taken during illuminate '09. One of the highlights of convention for us was the presence of Sister Dolores Pascual and some of the children from La Casa Rosada orphanage in the Dominican Republic. The two above pictures were taken the night of the Foundation 4Life® charity auction. During the evening, our Platinum and Gold International Diamond distributors were given the opportunity to bid on furnishings for the different rooms and areas of the new addition that 4Life helped build at La Casa Rosada.

It was so touching to watch the way in which our distributors opened their hearts and their wallets in bidding for these rooms. As each bidder went higher and higher, the smile on Sister Dolores' face got wider and wider. One of the great things about this event was that we were able to see and feel the results of all of your generosity. So often when we participate in fundraisers we never really get to physically witness where our money is going. That's not the case with Foundation 4Life. We think it's easy to see the joy that the Sisters and children felt as a result of the over $200,000 total donations made by 4Life distributors and Foundation 4Life. Once again, you are an inspiration to us. Thank you!

Sister Dolores and the La Casa Rosada kids enjoy festivities at illuminate '09.
