Nerium Receives Community Impact Award from BBBS

nerium_bbbs_award_1Yesterday, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America (BBBSA) presented Nerium International with the Community Impact Award at its 2013 National Conference in Denver, CO. This honor recognizes a Big Brothers Big Sisters partner whose energy and unparalleled generosity has impacted the Big Brothers Big Sisters community.


“Nerium’s support and creativity are transforming how we carry out the service to our youth in communities around this country,” says BBBSA’s CEO, Charles Pierson.


Investing in others

neriumripple_logoNerium International believes in investing in others, which is what inspired us to launch The Nerium Ripple, a program based on “individually taking responsibility, collectively changing the world.” The Nerium Ripple’s core cause is to create positive change, or positive ripples, in everyday life; to create an environment that fuels camaraderie, sharing, and growth; and to pay it forward and create a better world in the process.
In an effort to further The Nerium Ripple, Nerium International partnered with BBBSA in September of 2012, as the organization embodies Nerium’s belief in the “paying it forward” philosophy in a real and practical way.


Nerium encouraging others

Nerium has encouraged our Independent Brand Partners to join with BBBSA in a variety of ways: by becoming a “Big,” donating a percentage of their commissions, and/or participating in local “Bowl for Kids’ Sakes” events. Over the past year, Nerium International and our Brand Partners have donated over $300,000 to Big Brothers Big Sisters and hundreds of Brand Partners and Nerium employees have volunteered to be “Bigs.”
Says Nerium’s Co-Founder and Vice President of Marketing and Culture, Amber Olson Rourke, “The biggest ripple you can create is through impacting the life of another. Big Brothers Big Sisters is a natural extension of The Nerium Ripple. We enjoy seeing Nerium Brand Partners fill the need of ‘Bigs’ across the country and impacting their community in a ‘big’ way!”

    BBBS is near and dear to my heart. The school I used to be a Big at had to cancel their program due to funding a couple years ago. That the company I have chosen to be a part of – @NeriumIntl – is participating in helping #BBBS in such a tremendous way is just heartwarming!
