COPPELL, Texas, Dec 08, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) --
Mannatech, Incorporated(NASDAQ: MTEX), a global pioneer in the development of high-quality health, weight and fitness and skin care solutions based on nutritional science, announced a significant donation of its PhytoBlend(TM) powder dietary supplement was made to MannaRelief+ through Mannatech's Give for RealSMprogram. More than 5,000 children in 52 orphanages across four different Mexican states will receive the Mannatech product through MannaRelief and its partnership with Fundacion Vamos Mexico.
Mannatech's Give for RealSMprogram is a unique 'donation-through-consumption' initiative designed to help consumers and social entrepreneurs meet the needs of underprivileged children around the world. The donation by MannaRelief to former Mexican President Vicente Fox's and Marta Sahagún de Fox's charity marks the first major donation made through the program.
"We believe this significant donation through our Give for Real program symbolizes Mannatech's commitment toward enhancing the health of children in need through better nutrition," said Robert A. Sinnott, Ph.D., MNS, co-CEO and chief science officer of Mannatech. "PhytoBlend is based on Mannatech's Real Food Technology solutions, which aids in the development products that contain standardized levels of natural and plant-sourced nutrients at nutritionally effective levels."
For every purchase made through an automatic recurring order containing Ambrotose(R) Complex powder, Advanced Ambrotose(R) powder, MannaBears(TM) gummies, PhytoMatrix(R) caplets, PhytoBurst(R) nutritional chews or Optimal Support Packets, a donation of Mannatech's PhytoBlend powder supplement is provided through MannaRelief+ to children in need worldwide. Mannatech's goal is to connect one million consumers to one million at-risk children through its Give for Real program.
Mannatech and MannaRelief presented the product to Fundacion Vamos Mexico at a Dec. 7 press conference outside the Vicente Fox Center in Guanajuato, Mexico.
"The Give for Real program exemplifies the company's philanthropic spirit and allows our independent sales Associates to donate and help optimize nutrition where it is needed most across the world," continued Sinnott.
