Arbonne International, LLC (Arbonne) and its Arbonne Charitable Foundation hosted an inspiring and successful fundraising walk on Maui on January 10, 2018.
“Arbonne’s top leaders were in Maui for a business leadership meeting, so it was the perfect time to host a fundraising walk via the Arbonne Charitable Foundation,” said Courtney Janes, Executive Director of the Arbonne Charitable Foundation. “Every time we host a charity event, our leaders set the pace, just as they did with today’s fundraising walk. It is wonderful that we are giving back to youth on the island that we come to for our Arbonne leadership meeting each year. The people of Maui are truly part of our Arbonne family and it is a joy to be able to give back.”The fundraising walk took place along the shores of Wailea beach and local Hawaiian practitioners were on hand to share a traditional Hawaiian chant and ohana blessing prior to the walk. Three hundred Arbonne Independent Consultants and family members joined the event, which raised more than $12,000.
All proceeds from the Maui fundraising walk will benefit The Makoa Project, which has partnered with local nonprofit Maui Youth & Family Services. The word ‘Makoa’ means courageous; The Makoa Project is a discovery program that makes it possible for teens on Maui to learn, through an innovative approach, about their authentic selves and also supports them as they explore and walk out their true passions. Almost 10% of Maui youth live below the poverty line and adolescent homelessness and substance abuse are on the rise. The Makoa Project improves cultural, economic and community development as it connects with youth to focus on empowerment, growth and understanding of self.
