2010 Communitas Leadership Award Winner Xango, LLC (Lehi, UT) is heavily committed to fostering the health and wellness of its customers, which includes local and international communities. To better serve those communities, the recognized leader in health and wellness juices, skin toner and related products has embarked on a Season of Smiles from April through August 2010. The initiative inspired more than 150 company executives, employees, distributors and families to volunteer for trips to Tlaxcala and Guadalajara, Mexico, Chonburi, Thailand, and Ulan Ude, Russia. These Operation Smiles missions provided more than 450 children with free, life-changing surgeries to fix various facial deformities. In addition to improving the youngsters’ smiles, the program is altering destinies by enabling these children to eat and breathe well, attend school and become active participants in their own communities. AMCP judges selected the Season of Smiles program for a Leadership in Community Service Communitas Leadership Award, citing the initiative as “a real example of a company doing far more than just writing a check. Through its extensive volunteer efforts, XanGo truly epitomizes the spirit of Communitas — people working together for the betterment of the world community.” In addition to Season of Smiles, Xango also has an ongoing partnership with Operation Smile, and the firm distributes its Meal Packs to the world’s undernourished communities. We are proud to salute 2010 Communitas Leadership Award winner Xango LLC, and invite you to visit www.communitasawards.com to see a list of winners from this recent competition.
