As longtime supporters of THE MELALEUCA FOUNDATION, we have a place in our hearts for children of Ecuador who need a steady home and unconditional love. This past February, we traveled to Quito, Ecuador, to visit the Santa Lucia Children’s Home and see firsthand how our donations have changed the lives of so many deserving children.

Thanks to the generous ongoing contributions of its donors, the Melaleuca Foundation is the sole financial provider for the Santa Lucia Children’s Home. It offers hope, enhances lives and unconditionally reaches out to those children in need. We can all experience a wonderful feeling of truly enhancing lives in a major way there.

In February 2013, we had the opportunity and good fortune of visiting the children of Santa Lucia Children’s Home. The moment we passed through the gates, we were met with a rush of happy, excited children eager for hugs, wanting to be our friends and just glad we came to visit them. We experienced an atmosphere of happy, respectful and loved children.

At any given time there were several on our laps, at least one hanging around our necks and more trying to join.

Our granddaughters collected stuffed toys as gifts for the children and each child had the chance to choose one for their very own. How exciting! They proudly introduced us to their respective house mothers, showed us around their individual homes, explained all their toys to us and kept us busy in the playground: kicking the soccer ball, swinging on the swings, hanging from the monkey bars, sliding down the slides and climbing things.

We joined Melaleuca as customers and business builders 18 years ago looking for quality products, and also time and financial freedom. We will always remember Melaleuca Santa Luciasomething [Melaleuca CEO] Frank L. VanderSloot told us years ago:

“Don’t make Melaleuca your life, but allow Melaleuca to give you a life.”

As a result we have become financially free with the time to enjoy this freedom. Thanks to Melaleuca we can enjoy traveling to places like Santa Lucia in Ecuador, serving people in need and enhancing lives wherever we go.

Hemos hecho donaciones a la Fundación Melaleuca durante varios años y tenemos un lugar especial en nuestros corazones para los niños de Ecuador que necesitan un hogar estable y amor incondicional. En febrero tuvimos la oportunidad de viajar a Quito, Ecuador, y visitar el hogar de niños Santa Lucía, donde vimos de qué manera nuestras donaciones han cambiado la vida de tantos niños.

Gracias a las generosas contribuciones de nuestros donantes, la Fundación Melaleuca es la única fuente de apoyo económico del hogar de niños Santa Lucía. Ofrece esperanza y mejora vidas mientras se esfuerza por ayudar incondicionalmente a los niños que lo necesitan. Allí todos podemos experimentar el hermoso sentimiento que se siente al mejorar vidas.

En febrero del 2013 tuvimos la oportunidad y fortuna de visitar a los niños de Santa Lucía. Al entrar al orfanatorio nos recibió una multitud de niños felices y emocionados que nos querían abrazar. Querían ser nuestros amigos y estaban agradecidos de que los visitáramos. Disfrutamos de un ambiente de niños felices, respetados y amados.

A cada momento teníamos varios niños sentados en las piernas, colgados del cuello y otros tratando de unirse al grupo.

Mis nietas habían recolectado muñecos de peluche para regalar a los niños y todos tuvieron la oportunidad de escoger su propio peluche. ¡Qué emoción! Nos presentaron orgullosamente a las madres a cargo de sus casas, nos enseñaron sus habitaciones, nos platicaron de sus juguetes y nos invitaron a jugar en el jardín, donde patearon la pelota, se columpiaron, se deslizaron en el tobogán y treparon otros juegos.

Nos inscribimos en Melaleuca como clientes y emprendedores del negocio hace 18 años. Buscábamos productos de calidad, y también tiempo y libertad económica. Siempre recordaremos Melaleuca Santa Lucia lo que [el Jefe Ejecutivo] Frank L. VanderSloot nos dijo hace varios años:

No hagan que Melaleuca sea su vida, pero dejen que Melaleuca les de una vida.

Como resultado hemos logrado la libertad económica y tenemos el tiempo libre para disfrutarla. Gracias a Melaleuca podemos viajar a lugares como Santa Lucía en Ecuador, prestar servicio a quien lo necesita y mejorar la vida de los demás dondequiera que vayamos.
