XANGO Serves 5 Million Meals To Malnourished Children and Adults

LEHI, Utah, Jan. 8, 2013 -- Utah-based global direct sales company XANGO, LLC, is known for being the first to bring the mangosteen fruit to a worldwide market. Having recently completed its 10th year of business, XANGO continues to match its charitable giving to its international growth, with 5 million supplemental meals donated to severely malnourished children and adults around the world.

XANGO's philanthropic efforts, organized under the XANGO Goodness Foundation, have served as a critical component of the company's operations since before it opened its doors in 2002. Among XANGO's global initiatives is the Meal Pack Program, which started in 2008 and sends nutrient-rich and water-soluble porridge to impoverished communities around the world. The porridge is carefully formulated so that even the most malnourished stomachs can assimilate its nutrients, allowing children and adults on the brink of starvation, or suffering from the effects of chronic malnutrition or illness, to work their way back to health.

"XANGO Meal Packs are an effective way to give supplemental feedings to malnourished patients," said Dr. Frank Bia , medical director for global nonprofit disaster relief and humanitarian aid organization AmeriCares. "By simply adding water, you have a beneficial supplement that's easy to both prepare and use."

XANGO is proud to partner with AmeriCares in this endeavor. Through partnerships with accredited non-governmental organizations (NGOs) established in strife-ridden parts of the world, AmeriCares personally delivers Meal Packs to critical populations and provides on-site product training to ensure best results. Meal Packs have reached dozens of countries to date. Last year, for instance, XANGO sent meals to Tanzania, Haiti, Ghana, Afghanistan and Somalia.

Meal Packs are donated by independent XANGO distributors, many of whom contribute every month. The commitment of XANGO distributors continues to grow, with donations this past December surpassing previous Decembers by 20 percent.

"XANGO distributors never cease to amaze us with their commitment and charitable hearts," said XANGO Chairman and CEO Aaron Garrity . "Through a strong partnership with the wonderful people at AmeriCares, our commitment has never been stronger to helping the world's children and families in need to live better lives."

Added Bia, "I would like to personally thank XANGO and its distributors for facilitating the distribution of Meal Packs to AmeriCares partners. We congratulate you on your tenth anniversary and look forward to the next ten years of working together."
