For 2017, the Nerium Ripple Foundation has set a goal of raising $1.5 million USD (Approx $1.9 million AUD) for our partnerships around the world.
Through corporate contributions, campaigns, and the generosity of Nerium’s Independent Brand Partners, we hope to achieve this milestone and support Big Brothers Big Sisters as they work toward giving young people hope for a brighter future in Australia, Canada, Japan, Mexico, Korea, and the United States.
Big Brothers Big Sisters
The Nerium Ripple Foundation partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters has had a life-long impact on thousands of young people in the United States and Canada.
Since 2012, more than 3,500 deserving kids have benefited from the love and guidance of a caring, adult mentor as a result of Nerium’s commitment and support.
Youth who have had a mentor through Big Brothers Big Sisters are more likely to graduate from high school, complete a college degree, give back to society and enjoy loving relationships than their non-mentored peers.*
In fact, youth mentored through Big Brothers Big Sisters are:
– 46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs
– 27% less likely to begin using alcohol
– 52% less likely to skip school;
– 33% less likely to use violence.**
