Alabama Relief Efforts - Visalus Giving


As you have likely seen in recent news, a series tornadoes and storms have devastated several communities throughout Alabama, killing nearly 300 people. 15 of those deaths occurred in the city of Tuscaloosa where 200-mph winds swept homes from foundations, leaving an estimated 75,000 without homes in the area, including members and friends of the ViSalus Community.

ViSalus and its Body by Vi Community Challenge is proud to have an opportunity to help those in need by providing our Meal Replacement Vi-Shape shakes to The West Alabama Food Bank. This food bank services over 315,000 residents in 9 affected counties, including the city of Tuscaloosa and many more. Over fifteen percent of the families they assist are living in poverty. Over the last twenty-one years, the they have distributed over 17,000,000 pounds of food to households in need.

In response to this crisis, ViSalus is donating 18,000 kid-sizes meals (9,000 adult shake meals) to the West Alabama Food Bank, and are making it easy for anyone to help.

All Body by Vi Community Challenge Donations for the month of May, that I collect, will also go to the Alabama Food Bank to support their relief efforts.

If you would like to contribute to the Alabama relief efforts online, you can do so through my personal Distributor Giving Site now.
