Plexus Worldwide (Plexus®), a leading direct-selling health and wellness company focused on health and happiness, is donating $15,000 to The Salvation Army to help deliver crucial support to families and first responders impacted by the Australian bushfires.
The Salvation Army provides front line relief and recovery assistance to families, firefighters and volunteers impacted by the fires. To support the nonprofit’s efforts, Plexus launched the Stronger Together! social media campaign to raise awareness, pledging $1 for every social share.
During the 10-day campaign, the public shared Plexus’ Stronger Together! Facebook, LinkedIn, IG posts and video 15,000 times, equating to a $15,000 donation to The Salvation Army. In addition to the social media campaign, the company, in partnership with The Salvation Army, created a donation page that also raised close to $5,000 from generous donors.
“When we launched Plexus in Australia last year, I had the opportunity to tour the country and meet many of our Ambassadors,” said Tarl Robinson, Founder and CEO of Plexus. “Plexus is a family and hearing their stories and watching their heart-wrenching social media posts on the impact of these fires only emboldens our desire to help the communities that mean so much for our Plexus families.”
“These bushfires have directly impacted Plexus employees and sales representatives in Australia, who have witnessed the destruction as well as the toll these fires are having on communities,” said Alec Clark, Founder and President. “For many years, Plexus has supported The Salvation Army in time of crisis so we know how even a small donation can make a big difference to families at this crucial time.”
Plexus is also providing an easy way for the public to contribute directly to The Salvation Army’s efforts in Australia by including a link in Facebook posts to a donation page.
“Our ‘One Plexus’ philosophy emphasizes how we work collectively as a team to support one another,” said Christopher Pair, President of International and Operations. “This campaign is just one more example of our company, its Ambassadors and it’s employees coming together to help one another.”
Donations help fund the Salvation Army Emergency Services teams and provide immediate emotional, spiritual and material support where and when it is needed.
