Charities Tips for The Average Joe
Christopher Pair’s Story
There are parts of America that still suffer from hunger although this fact is not well known, or maybe it is just ignored. Some people go to sleep without eating anything and without knowing if they would eat the next day or not. Christopher Pair is an example of this as he grew up in those very same conditions. It is because of his experience in these conditions that he has become the man he is this day. Christopher was a grandson to a Mexican immigrant and a son to a sharecropper. All of them came from very humble beginnings, and so did Christopher. His dad had dreams of a better future, and in an attempt to get it for his family, he decided to serve in the army. He was in the military for quite a long while, and after leaving the administration, he returned home to accommodate the family as a gardener. As a child, it was common for Christopher to go without food. Whenever they had it, its nutritious value was very low.
Looking for other sources of income was the only way they could survive since the income they already had was not at all enough to provide all of them with food. One bright idea they had was recycling. They would go around collecting soda cans which they sold to get some money. This money was used to put food on the table. The only way Christophe could think of to get out of the situation they were in was to get an education, and that is what he did. The experiences he had while growing up stayed with him all through and made him work extra hard. He wanted to give those people in the same situation hope and an opportunity to live better lives with access to good food. This led him to the direct selling industry where he can promote change from his position as the president operations at Plexus Worldwide that is a direct selling company. He promoted this change by deciding to address an issue that he faced and that millions of families continue to face in America.
The circumstances that Christopher grew up in could have held him back, but he did his utmost best to overcome them, and he continues helping those in the same situation to live a better life. What attracted him to Plexus was how the company was determined to help others, and he recognized a tool with which to create the change he foresaw. Plexus made a deal with Feeding America which is an initiative to dispose of hunger in America. Through the partnership, the team strives to make an impact on the hunger crisis and hope to free millions of families from its clutches. A famous quote by him is “life is about more than what I need for myself, when we give, we find greater purpose and fulfillment”.
