Herbalife Employees Give Back During the Holidays

Mark Hughes, Herbalife Founder and First Member (1956–2000), once said that you should “Treat people with love and affection from your whole heart.” To this day, his poignant words echo through the hallways of Herbalife and inspire employees to give back to those in need, especially during the holidays. This year, Herbalife Family Foundation (HFF), an organization Hughes created to help improve children’s lives by providing healthy nutrition to children at risk, continues to go above and beyond to ensure the holiday season brings nutrition and joy to so many who are in need.

There are athletes and there is Sebastian Copeland – polar explorer, filmmaker, environmental activist, photographer and Herbalife-sponsored extreme athlete. At an early age, tantalized by novels and accounts detailing the golden age of exploration, Copeland’s dream to explore the unknown was born. Add to that a natural athleticism, as well as a strong desire for personal engagement and the path for extreme adventures was laid out in front of him.
